Commercial Carpet Cleaning
Benefits of Routine Carpet Maintenance
Planned carpet maintenance provides maximum value for the carpet investment. The carpet will have a longer useful life, present a more prestigious image, and support a more aesthetically pleasant workplace. It will perform as intended in the areas of color, aesthetics, style, acoustics, safety, and insulation.
Planned carpet maintenance provides for a continuous high level of appearance. The carpet never gets to that unacceptable point. Instead of always wishing the carpet could look as great as it does immediately following cleaning, planned maintenance eliminates the wishing. It does allow the carpet to look great all the time.
Company concern for employees and customers as well as the surroundings of the business is enhanced in the eyes of building occupants and users. If the carpet is allowed to deteriorate to an unacceptable appearance level, that image and show of concern is tarnished. A well-maintained carpet presents a professional and prestigious image.
Healthier Indoor Environment
Planned carpet maintenance provides a cleaner, healthier indoor environment. All of the issues of indoor air pollution, tight buildings, and the role of carpet as a filter and/or sink in the indoor environment point to carpet cleaning on a regular on-going basis as a major factor in maintaining a healthy environment in which to live and work. Studies done by the United States Environmental Protection Agency in 1991 and 1994 confirm that planned commercial carpet maintenance improves the healthful condition of an indoor environment.
Reduce or Control Ownership Costs
Since carpet is not allowed to deteriorate to an unacceptable level, cleaning procedures are less aggressive and complex and, therefore, less expensive. Frequent carpet cleaning also reduces the amount of dust and particulates that find their way into the air resulting in a reduced janitorial cost of cleaning. Since regular cleaning will prolong the useful life of the carpet, the costs of maintenance are amortized over more time when compared to replacement cost.
Ownership cost can be calculated by adding the total cost of owning the carpet and dividing by its useful life. Ownership cost can include: downtime of the workplace while the carpet is being replaced, tear-up of old carpet, clean-up of floor, floor prep costs, cost of new carpet, cost of installation, and total cost of maintenance.
