How Professional Carpet Cleaning Extends Carpet Lifecycle

How Professional Carpet Cleaning Extends Carpet Lifecycle

Is Carpet Cleaning Worth the Price Tag?

If you’ve recently installed new carpeting in your building, you understand the expense associated with the new carpet. You’ve also likely realized that you need to maintain this carpeting for as long as possible. You look into the price of deep cleaning services, steam cleaning, and low moisture cleaning solutions, but it seems that these services are too expensive. 

The truth is the opposite, however. Replacing your carpet creates huge recurring expenses for your company that can easily be delayed with regularly scheduled deep cleaning. We want to help you understand the long-term savings gained by choosing to implement more frequent deep cleaning for your office carpet. We offer steam cleaning and low moisture cleaning systems as well as stain removal services. These services extend the life of your carpet and improve indoor air quality, and overall office health and appearance.

Benefits of Routine Carpet Cleaning

Indoor Air Quality

Implementing a deep cleaning regimen not only maintains carpet appearance for longer but also improves indoor air quality in your building, and increases building occupant health. Dust, dirt, and other potentially harmful contaminants settle into the fibers of your carpet. Regular, thorough vacuuming does a lot to offset the accumulation of these particles, but it’s not enough. As time passes, these contaminants settle below the surface of your carpet acting as both an abrasive between the fibers and a pollutant to the air quality in your building. The simple act of walking on a carpet that hasn’t been properly deep cleaned kicks up dust, dirt, and allergens into the atmosphere of your building. This greatly affects office health, potentially triggering asthma, allergies, and skin irritation for your employees and customers. 

What is dust, and why should you care about removing it? Dust is a generic term for the conglomeration of particles that are created daily by building inhabitants, pests, and bacteria. A few key contributors to dust in a normal building are dead skin, dirt, pollen, insect remains and bacteria, virus, and other harmful pathogens. While it’s likely impossible to create a dust-free building, routine cleaning can greatly reduce the amount of dust, and other particles, that are floating around your office,  settling into your carpet, and diminishing indoor air quality. 

Increased Durability

On top of the health benefits gained from routine service, there’s the obvious benefit of better-looking carpets that retain their form and appearance longer. Steam cleaning and other extraction method remove the abrasive particles from your carpet, keeping the fibers from fraying and maintaining their strength and form. This reduces fraying and further destruction of portions of your carpet. 

Extend Vibrancy

One last benefit of implementing professional deep cleaning is retaining the color of your carpet. Many carpet cleaning chemicals sold in stores for personal use have a bleaching effect on your carpet, causing it to discolor. "Ugly out" is a term used in the carpet industry, referring to carpet that still holds its form and remains durable, but has been discolored by improper chemical usage and heavy foot traffic. You’ve probably seen this on portions of carpet in high-traffic areas around entry/exit points of your building and near high-traffic areas such as lunchrooms and restrooms. Trusting your carpets to a professional carpet cleaning service will help prevent your carpet from "Uglying Out" before you're ready to replace it.

 

Explicit Cost versus Long Term Savings

The upfront cost of more regular deep cleaning services may seem overwhelming after having just paid so much money to replace the previous carpet. However, the purpose of routine service is to extend the life of your carpet creating value and delaying the lump sum cost of replacement. While you may not recognize the need to clean your carpets within the first year of installation, it’s the best time to start a solid cleaning regimen, getting ahead of potential abrasives and staying consistent.
