Worried About the Chemicals Used In Commercial Carpet Cleaning?

Safety & Clean Should Go Hand In Hand

Clean carpets are an essential part of a solid facility maintenance plan. But as important as clean carpets are, safety and a healthy work environment are even more important. So when shopping for commercial carpet cleaning services, how can you determine which companies are using carpet cleaning solutions, chemicals and methods that are in line with your green cleaning goals, healthy indoor air quality and other factors that can impact a healthy work environment? It is understandable that you are worried about what your commercial carpet cleaning company is using to clean your carpets. The more you understand about commercial carpet cleaning methods, chemicals and best practices, the better you can evaluate commercial cleaning companies in order to protect your building’s occupants, your carpeting and your facility’s reputation.


Understanding Commercial Carpet Cleaning Chemicals & Their Impact On Your Facility

There are two things you need to know about the chemicals and products used to clean your carpets. You want to know whether they are safe and whether there is any possibility they might damage your carpets. In the past, carpet cleaning solvents presented a number of health and safety concerns. Today, most carpet cleaning chemicals are formulated to be safer for both people and the environment. To be sure, if you know what products a prospective carpet cleaning company uses you can determine whether or not it has the Carpet and Rug Institute’s (CRI), Green Seal and other certifications that signify a commitment to green building practices and non toxic chemicals. While some carpet cleaning chemicals could damage carpeting, what is more likely is that cleaners will be used incorrectly, meaning carpets get cleaned less effectively and residues are left behind that lead to carpet resoiling. If you want to assure your carpet won’t be damaged by either the method or the cleaner, you should always check with your carpet’s manufacturer. In fact, many carpet manufacturers expressly forbid the use of certain carpet cleaning methods, like Bonnet Carpet Cleaning, which will often void your carpet’s warranty.


Knowledge Is Power

Knowledge is power when it comes to choosing commercial carpet cleaning companies and janitorial services companies. Sure you can’t make it your full time job and yet, equipping yourself with good information and the right questions to ask can help you make sure you end up with the right commercial cleaning partner. It’s in your best interest to ask questions and inform yourself about the carpet cleaning process and the chemicals and solutions used. Not only is it just good information to have, simply asking the questions puts prospective carpet cleaning companies on notice that you are informed and paying attention. Furthermore, cleaning companies that can’t answer questions about their process and products indicate they are uninformed, unprepared or purposefully evading questions and not the right company to partner with.


Getting Commercial Carpet Cleaning That Is Safe, Effective & Cost Effective

Your commercial carpeting is a substantial investment. Treating and cleaning carpets wrongly can cost years of your carpet’s lifespan and force you to replace this expensive asset far earlier than you should have to. It pays to do your homework, ask your questions and be informed so that you find a partner who will help you keep your building looking good, protect your carpet and do their part to ensure you have a healthy work environment.
