As offices receive higher foot traffic on a daily basis, their carpet cleaning requirements are usually unique as compared to those of homes. Carpet owners typically get confused on matters such as the actual cleaning benefits, the pre-cleaning arrangements (if any), and even on the very need of a professional carpet cleaning service itself.
Here are some questions that carpet owners frequently ask about professional carpet cleaning services:
Commercial Carpet Cleaning FAQs
Why is quality carpet cleaning essential?
Quality carpet cleaning doesn’t just restore your carpet’s original beauty, but it also extends its lifespan. By estimates, regular professional cleaning of your carpets can increase their life expectancy to at least 12 years, which is a cost-saving deal. Some people are of the opinion that regular vacuum cleaning can do the job, but that is only good for eliminating the visible dirt, and it leaves harmful sediments underneath that eat away at the carpet surface over time.
Commercial carpet cleaning service improves the life expectancy of your carpet in the following ways:
- Removing carpet invaders like mold and mildew
- Saving your carpet from getting wet and oversaturated after cleaning
- Extending the longevity of the design aspects (colors and pattern) by utilizing 80% less water during cleaning
Can carpet cleaning get rid of fleas in my carpet?
Carpet cleaning is highly effective in reducing flea infestation. Vacuum vibrations and other green cleaning methods eliminate flea eggs scattered across and deep within carpet fibers. By targeting the root cause, you reduce the chances of more fleas capturing your workplace.
However, as a carpet is not the only place where fleas infest, we recommend a deep cleaning of upholstery and other rugs or pet beds too, before the carpet cleaning process begins. For eliminating adult fleas, consider hiring a professional exterminator.
Do I need to vacuum before the cleaning crew arrives?
A light vacuuming in the high foot-traffic areas will reduce the overall cleaning duration. However, this is something that the crew usually takes care of – if needed. Carpet cleaning equipment usually does vacuum the entire time it’s cleaning.
Are there instructions to follow after my carpets are cleaned?
For immediate advice, stay off the carpet for at least 4-6 hours to let it dry. Walking on the wet carpet will flatten the carpet fibers. It will restrict the air passage, increasing the amount of time the carpet takes to dry.
For faster drying, heat up the room temperature if it’s cold outside. If it’s a warm day, turn the AC off, and turn on the ceiling fan. You can also open the windows, but avoid it if there is a chance of dust coming in through it. Also, don’t move the furniture back into its place before the carpet is completely dry. If you’ve applied a carpet protector, wait for at least 24 hours before moving back the furniture.
