Carpet Care Programs Pay Dividends in Carpet Longevity

Commercial carpeting adds beauty, noise reduction, and comfort to many public spaces.  Maintaining this type of flooring does not need to be difficult if you have a maintenance program in place.

A customized comprehensive carpet care program consists of five elements:

  • Soil Containment – isolation of soil entering the building using mats at entrances.
  • Vacuuming – scheduled frequency for removal of dry soil using a CRI approved green, silver or gold labeled vacuum.
  • Spot and Spill Removal System - using professional spot removal techniques.
  • Interim Cleaning – scheduled frequency appearance cleaning for all traffic areas.
  • Restorative Cleaning – scheduled frequency deep cleaning to remove residues and trapped soils.

Effective, routine vacuuming is a must for good commercial carpet performance, so a proper vacuuming program is essential in a well-designed maintenance program. The most important features of your vacuuming maintenance program will be identifying high, medium, and low traffic areas by continually monitoring carpet performance and making any necessary adjustments to the schedule.
