Should you Have Office Flooring Professionally Cleaned?

When it comes to flooring, the type of material you find in most office buildings isn’t always the most thrilling. That’s because commercial carpeting isn’t supposed to be as luxuriously comfortable as residential carpeting. Commercial carpeting is generally meant to be a cost-effective and dependable flooring material that doesn’t require a lot of maintenance. On that front, just how much effort should you put into keeping it clean?

What You Need to Know About Professional Office Flooring

How Should I be Cleaning My Office Flooring?

Every different type of flooring material has its own set of rules and guidelines. Don’t overdo it with the hot, soapy water when it comes to hardwood flooring, don’t use heavy chemical cleaners on vinyl flooring, etc. But what about commercial carpeting?  That really depends on what kind of work the flooring is in. If it’s your typical office building, where people mainly sit at desks and the worst thing the custodial staff has to worry about are coffee spills, you probably can get away with a regular vacuuming. You can also shampoo the floors with carpet- friendly cleaning agents every couple of months to keep things smelling nice. If it’s a different industry, or there are food allergies or pet hair or other concerns, you’re going to want to be a little more thorough. That means daily vacuuming, yes, but look into the type of vacuum cleaner you are using. The kind of equipment you use can make all the difference in the world. 

Why You Need to Clean Your Carpets Regularly

Having clean carpets is important,as dirty flooring can reflect poorly on your business. Regularly cleaning your carpet by vacuuming will help control such things as the quality of the air in the room and preventing the buildup of allergens and toxins. Dust mites and bed bugs can wiggle their ways into the carpeting as well, so that’s one more way regularly (and thoroughly) cleaning your carpets will do. Additionally, taking care of anything will ensure that it lasts longer; this is very true with carpeting. Commercial carpeting is meant to be durable, yes, but that doesn’t mean it will last forever without proper care.

Is a Professional Carpet Cleaner the Right Option?

This depends on what you need them to do. If it’s just a regular floor cleaning, it might not be necessary, but if you can afford to pay someone else to do the work for you, then by all means, go for it. If you find the right carpet cleaner, and there are a number of them in the Nashville area, then you won’t have to worry about it being done the wrong way. But if you think you need a professional carpet cleaner to come to the office for anything, that’s probably not true. A lot of the everyday spills and stains are not a problem for anyone with a brush, the right chemicals and a little elbow grease. The other thing to think about, when weighing the pros and cons of professional carpet cleaning,  is that cleaning the carpet is not the only thing carpet cleaners do. They also put down stain guards and other chemicals, which will help keep your floor safe for months after they leave.

There certainly are benefits to calling in a professional carpet cleaning company, especially if it’s anything more serious than average spills or minor water damage. But before you call them, give the professionals at Ozburn-Hessey a call, because there’s no one that knows more about flooring!
