Carpet Can Be Great But There Are Some Drawbacks
Carpets can be a great choice for your facility flooring by providing traction and noise control, but they can also harbor allergens, dust, bacteria, and other pollutants that can affect indoor air quality and cause health problems. According to experts at American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI), heating and air-conditioning systems and carpeting likely significantly contribute to poor indoor air quality. With Americans spending as much as 90% of their time indoors, repeated exposure to indoor allergens and airborne particles can significantly impact respiratory symptoms and conditions. Indoor air quality comes down to a variety of factors, but poorly maintained carpet can significantly lower indoor air quality and even reduce the lifespan of this costly asset. Carpets and hard flooring both have their positives and their drawbacks. Yet either option maintained properly can be good for your building and occupants. A suitable carpet maintenance program can both improve your indoor air quality keeping your building’s occupant safe and healthy while preserving the longevity of one of your facility’s most costly assets.
HVAC Pushes Air Contaminants Into Carpet, Commercial Carpet Cleaning Extracts Deep Dirt
One advantage carpet has over hard flooring is that it essentially traps contaminants rather than let them circulate with moving air. But if these contaminants are left in the carpet for long, they offer the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and mold. Your HVAC effectively pushes contaminants into carpet where they are then pounded even further with regular foot traffic. While vacuuming certainly removes some of these contaminates, regular professional carpet cleaning is essential for deep cleaning carpets in such a way as to restore them to like new, improve their appearance, remove nearly all of surface and deeper dirt and improve indoor air quality.
Maximize Your Carpet Investment With a Carpet Maintenance Program
Carpet offers a great floor covering that can reduce slip and falls by providing traction and even dampen noise in your building making it a more productive environment. When regularly and properly maintained, carpeting can create a positive first impression and enhance your facility’s image, while affording employees and visitors a clean, safe working environment. A regular maintenance cleaning program for your commercial carpets can eliminate and reduce dirt, debris, dust, bacteria and more that all impact indoor air quality. Likewise, regular carpet care can reduce carpet wear, specifically in high traffic areas that are prone to show wear first. Add to that the fact that regular industrial carpet cleaning and office carpet cleaning promote a consistent carpet appearance and even preserve your carpet’s rich color and texture. There can be no doubt that regular carpet cleaning and a carpet maintenance program extend the life of this valuable asset.
The Right Commercial Carpet Cleaning Methods Make A Big Difference
Your building’s carpets take a beating every single day. Between heavy foot traffic, dirt and grime carried in from outside, dust and debris pushed down from your HVAC, salt, moisture, grit and spills, it is easy to see why office carpeting can quickly lose its good looks. Don’t let dirty and worn industrial carpeting reduce indoor air quality and the negatively impact the overall image of your facility. Regular commercial carpet cleaning protects your carpet’s appearance and extends the lifespan of this costly asset—if done correctly. However, not every Detroit carpet cleaning company is trained and prepared to maintain your carpets correctly. Commercial carpet cleaning has made a great many strides technologically and if your industrial carpet cleaning service is still using old methods to care for your carpet, they are not only failing to get you the most thorough and deep clean, they are actually likely reducing the lifespan of your carpets. Improper carpet maintenance can cause quick resoiling of carpets, breakdown carpet fibers and even void your carpet warranty. Low-moisture carpet care, like the Whittaker method, can add significantly to the expected life of commercial carpet making the cost of carpet maintenance a sound investment.
