Most office cleaning services include vacuuming the carpet as part of their routine cleaning, but it’s not enough if you want to remove all the nastiness that’s lurking in it. Vacuuming may be the extent of carpet care until stains and odors start to appear. This lazy approach to carpet care isn’t doing your carpets any favors, and it’s bad for your health too. Elements from outside are constantly tracked into the office. The dust and dirt can take a toll on your carpets because it’s repeatedly stepped on. This will break the fibers down and you’ll be replacing it sooner than expected. But carpet fibers that are damaged aren’t the only problem you’ll be dealing with. Dirty carpets smell bad and create unsanitary conditions.
How Clean or Dirty is Your Carpet?
Dirt, Dust & Sand in Carpet– Dirt and sand gets stuck on shoes and tracked into offices all day long. The average U.S. home accumulates about 40 pounds of dust every year. You only need to imagine how much an office accumulates with the added foot traffic. This can be reduced with mats at entrances but won’t eliminate the problem and vacuuming will only remove about 80% of the dust and dirt found in carpets.
Food & Drink Spills in Carpet– Many office workers eat at their desks. This means food particles have ended up in the carpet and drinks get spilled on carpets all the time. This leaves stains and if they aren’t taken care of the right way, these stains can lead to unpleasant odors and bacteria growth.
Mold, Mildew & Germs in Carpet– Food and drink stains make it easy to see when it’s time to replace carpets. But mold, mildew, salmonella, E. coli staphylococcus, norovirus and more are hidden pathogens that you can’t. These can all be living in your carpets without you even knowing it. To combat these harmful pathogens, it’s important to have your carpets professionally cleaned and dried.
Skin flakes on Carpet– We shed about a million skin flakes every day! This isn’t pleasant to think about, either is the fact that most of them end up on your carpet.
Carpet Beetles & Bugs– There are bugs you can see and those you can’t. Microscopic bugs, fleas and dust mites thrive in carpets and feed in all those skin flakes that fall off us every day. Dust mites can cause allergies through their molted skin and waste. It’s imperative to keep carpets clean to avoid these issues.
Chemical in Carpet– Along with dirt that gets tracked in on our shoes so can different chemicals. These chemicals include rock salt, lawn treatment sprays, vehicle oils and others that can damage your carpets.
