How Often Should You Clean Your Carpet?
The short answer is this: Schedule carpet cleanings often enough to avoid any buildup of mold, mildew, dust, dirt and other problems that can occur without proper care.
More specifically, you will need to consider the type of business you run, which plays a big part in the amount of wear and tear your carpet endures. At the same time, it’s important to think about the size of your business and how many people walk on the carpet each day. This includes both workers and visitors. You should also be aware that people track in different types of dirt, which is often related to the type of business you operate.
But other factors exist that extend beyond the nature of your business. These include things like:
The quality, color, and style of your carpet
The climate where your business is located.
Foul weather takes a toll on carpeted areas since people naturally track in unwanted dirt and moisture.
Whatever the case, every business wants to project a positive image, and cleanliness plays a big role in this area. When your carpet is clean and inviting, people assume that you operate an efficient business. Lion's Pride Carpet Care's commercial cleaning system not only cleans better, but it also helps to restore the carpet texture.
Considering all these factors, commercial carpet typically needs to be cleaned anywhere from every month to every 18 months. If traffic is heavy, then a three to six-month schedule will probably be necessary. On the other hand, lighter traffic and less wear and tear means that every year to 18 months should suffice.
MORE THAN CLEAN
At Lion's Pride Carpet Care, we understand that you need more than carpet cleaning. You also need to protect your investment by prolonging the life of your carpet and upholstery. Our long-term carpet protection strategy helps, including the following options designed to benefit your business.
Interim Carpet Cleaning
Every workplace has high-traffic areas that take on the brunt of the dirt. That’s why we offer an interim carpet cleaning service. By addressing these areas, we can provide better carpet protection, extend the life of your carpet and make regular cleaning faster and easier. Our interim carpet cleaning service is less hassle than a total cleaning, which is another great reason to give it a try.
At Lion's Pride Carpet Care, our professional-strength carpet deodorizers neutralize odors by eliminating them at their source. Powerful encapsulating agents work hard to provide instant relief from odor. You get a fresh, clean scent you can trust.
After cleaning, we can apply a professional-strength carpet protector that helps your carpet, furniture and partitions resist dirt, spills, and daily wear and tear. Safe for people, pets and the environment, our carpet protection acts as a shield around the carpet fibers, making it difficult for dirt to infiltrate. The protector extends the life of your carpet; there is no unpleasant odor; and your carpet stays cleaner—longer. Best of all, the added carpet protection provides extra time to clean up any unexpected spills. And, it eliminates pesky static build-up. See "carpet protection" under the carpet specialty tab in the Carpet section. There is also more info on our protection warranty.
Spot Carpet Cleaning
When unwanted spots appear, they demand a little extra attention. Our mild but effective spot cleaning works great on most carpet and upholstery—without breaking down the carpet protection. The solution uses no optical brighteners and is safe for pets, but effectively prevents any spots from turning into full-blown stains.
