3 Way to Make Your Office Carpet Last Longer

First impressions are always important in a business, and a well-maintained environment is where it all starts. We know how much of an investment your office carpet represents.

Today we give you 3 great ways to make your office carpet last longer.

1. Vacuum

Regularly vacuuming your carpet is the single most important factor in extending the life of your carpet and improving appearance retention.

High traffic areas in your office should be vacuumed daily. For medium traffic areas, this can be reduced to two or three times a week, and low traffic areas you might be able to only vacuum once or twice a week.

Alternatively, if the weather is bad, and lots of dirt and water is being brought into your office entrance on people’s shoes, you might need to clean more regularly in the winter compared with the summer.

2. Deal with Spills

You should encourage your employees to clean up minor spills as soon as they happen, and it’s worth having an established cleaning process in place to deal with big spills because these will cause extensive staining.

The only difference between a spot and a stain is time. You should immediately blot (never wipe or rub!) the affected area with a paper towel to absorb as much of the spill as possible and make a note for your cleaning staff.

3. Deep Clean

Regular vacuuming is capable of removing 80% of dirt and debris from your carpet, but even with the best vacuum cleaner available, you still won’t manage to remove 100%.

The problem with the leftover 20% is that this dirt and debris gets ground into your carpet, and starts to wear away at the carpet fibers like sandpaper, which speeds up the appearance degradation of your carpet.

As a guideline, high traffic areas should be deep cleaned monthly, medium-traffic areas will need deep cleaning three to four times a year, and low traffic areas can be deep cleaned once or twice a year.
