Don’t Let Carpet Spots & Staining Be the First Thing Visitors See In Your Facility

Carpet spotting and carpet stains can turn a visitor or occupant in your facility off quickly. Unlike a scuffed floorboard or even chipped office furniture, stained and spotted office carpeting looks, well, dirty. Carpet is both functional and beautiful in commercial buildings, but if it isn’t cared for properly, it can be an eyesore and tough on your facility’s reputation. Nothing registers quite so quickly as unsightly mystery spots, stains, an off smell and wear on your building’s carpet. As important as keeping your carpets clean is WHO cleans them. If you contract with an inexperienced commercial carpet cleaning service, they can do far more harm than good. Not only may they fail to effectively remove spots and stains, they may leave behind excess moisture and detergents that draw more soil and dirt to your carpets making them appear soiled and grimy faster. Don’t pay good money for bad carpet cleaning.


Don’t Pay Good Money For Commercial Carpet Cleaning That Is Ineffective

When it comes to commercial carpet cleaning some methods and cleaning solutions are definitely superior to others. If you aren’t certain what your carpet cleaning company uses on your carpets, you should find out. What shouldn’t your commercial cleaning company be using? For one, we do not use or recommend Bonnet Cleaning for carpets. Bonnet carpet cleaning isn’t an effective way to get carpets deep cleaned and it is way too aggressive. In fact, Bonnet cleaning is so potentially hard on your carpets that most carpet manufacturers state that Bonnet cleaning voids the carpet’s warranty. With improvements in carpet cleaning technology has come better, safer ways to keep your commercial carpets looking their best. Janitorial companies that are still using ineffective, dated methods like Bonnet carpet cleaning are doing so because it benefits THEM, not you the customer. Between it being cheaper than upgrading to good equipment and being easy to train people on-- forgoing the need for well trained technicians, Bonnet cleaning can trim costs for a failing carpet cleaning company. But you can be sure, they won’t charge you less for their subpar, potentially damaging cleaning.


Will Your Commercial Carpet Cleaning Company Deliver Results?

So if Bonnet carpet cleaning is entirely the wrong method, what SHOULD commercial carpet cleaning companies be using to get your carpets looking clean and smelling fresh? Here at Stathakis, we recommend those carpet cleaning methods that we have seen the best results in our own buildings and those of our customers. These are truck mounted hot water extraction, portable hot water extraction and dry cleaning encapsulation methods like Whittaker carpet cleaning. Truck mounted hot water extraction is the gold standard in commercial carpet cleaning because it is effective in both spot removal and deep cleaning. Very hot water deeply penetrates your carpet getting in cleaned from top to bottom lifting and removing stains and soil rather than delivering a cursory, surface clean. This means cleaner, better smelling carpets that stay cleaner longer. In fact, we have seen stains that seemed fixed and permanent come out with hot water extraction leaving customer carpets cleaner than ever. This can help delay expensive replacement and get you a few more years from carpets you might once have thought needed certainreplacement. While truck mounted hot water extraction is the gold standard in commercial carpet cleaning, some areas of your building are better served portable hot water extraction machines. The portable machines are very similar to the truck mounted method except being portable, they can reach harder to access areas of your building or can be more efficient for spot cleaning in between more extensive cleanings. Additionally, for periodic maintenance, we recommend dry carpet cleaning like the Whittaker method. These three methods, used appropriately, will help keep your carpets cleaner, longer.


What Do You Need Right Now From Your Commercial Carpet Cleaning Company?

Your professional carpet cleaning company should be able to tailor their services to meet your most pressing needs. Likewise, they should be able to make recommendations for your carpet’s long term maintenance. Whether you need a long put off deep carpet cleaning or just a few spots that must be treated, a professional carpet cleaning team using the most safe and effective chemicals and carpet care methods will get you the best results. If spotting and staining are at the top of your list, a trained carpet cleaning technician offers the best chance of removal. Why not give yourself the best chance of getting your carpets looking their best and even getting extra years of use from this costly building asset? Even better, you can combine spot treating and stain removal with deep carpet cleaning and interim carpet cleaning to create an individualized carpet appearance management program that keeps your carpets and facility clean and fresh at any given moment.
