Carpets tend to be high traffic areas, which make them easily susceptible to wear and tear. Without regular maintenance, your office or commercial space could risk stains, tears, burns, and other permanent damage. To prevent unnecessary damage, spot cleaning and vacuuming should be done regularly and carpet steam cleaning should be done every six months to a year. Here are some signs that may suggest your office carpets need cleaning.
The most obvious sign of wear and tear is carpet discolouration. This includes dullness or change in colour. Discolouration can occur from sunlight, trapped dust particles, a high amount of foot traffic, or prolonged exposure to chemicals and soiling. Common discolouration may include greying, yellowing, browning, bleaching, and fading. The lighter the carpets, the more frequent they will require cleaning.
Another common sign of wear and tear includes stains. To prevent excessive staining and permanent damage, spot cleaning should be completed on a regular basis. When stains cannot be removed, it is necessary to hire a professional Vancouver office cleaning company.
Carpet steam cleaning is one of the best options for removing tough stains. This process involves a carpet extractor that sprays a cleaning solution mixed with water into the carpets. A wet vacuum extracts the dirty solution to remove dirt and grime. Carpet steam cleaning can often return office carpets to their original condition (if not better).
If your office can’t seem to get rid of lingering musty odours, it is a sign your office carpets require a deep clean. Unpleasant odours often occur in the colder months when there is ample rain and snow, or when pets are present. Soiled carpets that do not dry tend to get mouldy and grow bacteria. Putting down mats at office entrances, using carpet deodorizers, and regularly cleaning your office carpets will fend off unwanted scents.
A sign that your office carpets require cleaning that often goes unnoticed includes increased allergies and sickness. Carpets in particular are susceptible to dust, allergens, pet dander, and other bacteria that build up over time leading to chronic sinus infections, asthma, and other respiratory issues. Regular vacuuming and carpet steam cleaning can assist in preventing multiple sick days.
Water damage is a common issue in Vancouver, BC due to the high amount of rainfall. Small leaks in the ceiling or pipes can create stains, mould, and mildew. If the damage is extreme, your office carpets may require complete replacement and restoration. No matter the size or scope of the water damage, it is crucial to contact a professional office cleaning company or restoration expert to assess the situation immediately.
Prevent your office from looking run down with regular floor maintenance. Not only will your carpets be in great condition for many years to come, but they will also prolong you from having to replace your office carpets.
