Office carpets can be low or high maintenance, depending on the type of material and pile. Regular upkeep is necessary to prolong the lifespan of office carpets, and prevent the need for repairs or replacement. Choosing durable, low-pile office carpets and straying away from light colours can minimize the build-up of dirt, debris, and allergens, and reduce visible stains. Here are some other options to consider.
Get an Area Rug, Mat, or Runner
Use area rugs, mats, and runners in high traffic areas to prevent wear and tear of carpets. Reduce outside debris from being tracked indoors by placing them in lobbies, hallways, and entrances. Abstain from choosing delicate area rugs, mats, or runners made from viscose, silk, plush, or other high-pile options, and opt for wool, cotton, jute, sisal, synthetics, or other flat-weave or low-pile options instead.
Vacuuming is beneficial for getting rid of lingering dirt, debris, allergens and food crumbs, preventing mould and mildew growth, and deterring rodent and pests. In pet-friendly offices, vacuuming removes odours and pet dander that deeply penetrate in carpet fibres.
Immediately spot clean after a spill. This prevents liquids from saturating and creating permanent damage. Office carpets require different cleaning methods based on the type of material. Try warm, soapy water and a cloth as a first resort. For tough stains, use white vinegar, baking soda, club soda, or stain remover. Never rub stains in, as it causes stains to penetrate deeper. Blot for best results.
Opt for Low-Pile or Medium-Pile Carpets
Low and medium-pile carpets are easier to clean and require less maintenance and upkeep. Their flat surface prevents dirt, allergens, and stains from being trapped.
Stay Away from Light Colours
Light coloured office carpets can be tricky to maintain and easily show physical damage. Stay away from bleach, as it causes discolouration and deterioration.
