The way your office is maintained says a lot about your company. A clean and well maintained space with commercial carpeting is more enjoyable and comes across very professional. Your commercial space probably has a ton of people walking in and out everyday, which can be hard on your commercial carpeting. And let’s face the truth: letting your (potential) clients walk on dirty carpeting isn’t exactly going to win them over. The dust collected in your carpet can also cause allergies and other types of health issues. It goes without saying that paying attention to your carpet can be very beneficial. Maintaining your carpeting can also save you costs. Using the tips we’ve listed for your business, you can improve your office’s looks, save money and keep everyone in the office healthy.
Keep Your Commercial Carpeting Clean
If you want your commercial carpeting to last you years and years, make sure you (or your cleaning service) pay extra attention to your flooring when cleaning. Vacuum frequently, using the right vacuum height. We recommend using the middle setting for best results. Having your carpet cleaned professionally from time to time will also contribute in the longevity of your flooring.
When it comes to stains, try to make sure everyone cleans the carpet when they spill any liquids before it dries. Show everyone in the office where they can find the right cleaning products and how they should use them correctly.
Invest in Carpet Padding
Whilst carpet pads are not visible, it plays a huge role in protecting your carpet. Without the pad, the backside of your carpet is going to rub against the floor boards, which is undesirable. In turn, your carpet will be marked where feet and furniture touch. Think of a carpet pad as a shock absorber. It prevents tear, adds a soft feel to the carpet, raises your carpet for easier vacuuming and also insulates the floor. Additionally, carpet padding acts as a sound dampener, which comes in handy for upper level units. And finally, installing a proper carpet pad helps maintain the warranty of your carpet.
Use Entryway Mats
One of the most effective ways to protect your carpet is to take advantage of entry / exit mats where you can. These mats will reduce the dirt getting on your commercial carpet, which is especially beneficial in spaces with a lot of traffic.
Commercial carpeting adds a high R-value to your business and improves the air quality of your office.
