How to Clean Commercial Carpet Over the Holiday Break

Steaming a gray carpet.

Clean commercial carpet is essential to employee health and productivity. But cleaning it can be time-consuming and inconvenient to the day-to-day work that needs to get done in the commercial space, to begin with.

Luckily, holiday breaks are just around the corner, and as your people leave for their vacations, now might be the perfect time to schedule a commercial carpet cleaning. This way, you can tackle cleaning and maintenance for your commercial carpeting and not disturb operations.

Cleaning Commercial Carpet Over the Holiday Break

How to Clean Commercial Carpet

Because of commercial carpet’s low pile, it’s easy to clean and maintain. Depending on how busy your commercial space is, daily or weekly vacuuming is necessary. Regular vacuuming keeps dirt and debris from settling into the carpet and the surface below. This reduces the risk of mold and mildew issues, allergen buildup, and other hazards that will affect employee health.

Without proper vaccuuming, employees can be greatly affected. They can have issues with their lungs and other organs, creating major breathing issues.

How to Deep Clean Commercial Carpet

During the holidays, you may want to deep clean your commercial carpet since fewer people are walking through the space on a daily basis. This will give you time to vacuum, shampoo, and let the carpet dry properly.

Shampooing your carpet is essential for removing deep set dirt and debris and will make future maintenance cleaning easier. But if you don’t let your carpet dry properly before employees start walking all over it again, you’ll have bigger issues with dirt and mold.

A flooring contractor who offers such services will provide proper timelines for when it’s safe to allow staff to walk across the carpeting. However, if you shampoo and clean over the holiday break, you’ll have ample time to get the job done exactly as it should.

Benefits of Cleaning Commercial Carpet

As previously stated, cleaning commercial carpets reduces allergies and removes dirt and dust from your flooring. This also means better indoor air quality (IAQ) and better overall employee performance, reducing labor costs and employee sick days.
