Reasons why you should regularly clean your office carpets
When it comes to office carpet cleaning there are so many different reasons as to why you should have your carpet cleaned regularly. We’re going to talk about the top 7 reasons as to why YOU should get your office carpets cleaned!
1. Prolong the life of your office carpet
If you are looking to save money as a company and reduce your expenses then look no further, commercial carpets have been known to be one of the most expensive types of carpet.
Due to the durability and complexity of the carpets, they can last up to and over a decade if they’re properly looked after. A typical new office carpet can cost anything from £2,400 up to £5,000 to have new carpets.
Without the proper care and attention needed you could be faced with this steep figure every 3 years… crazy right?
Due to the sheer amount of traffic your office carpet can face from clients, staff, and visitors, we would recommend having your carpets cleaned at-least every quarter to maximise the lifetime of your carpets.
2. Improve first impressions of your business
Depending on what sector you’re in whether it be industrial, business to business or business to consumer, you may have clients entering your commercial office or building.
We all know how important first impressions are and you need to set a high standard to represent your work ethic. From a young age, we are all taught that we only get one first impression and that first impression can last a lifetime!
It’s a well-known fact that people form an opinion in just under 60 seconds. That’s why it’s important to be at our best 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
The overall condition of your office is a reflection of what your work ethic is like along with your expectations of staff having a clean and tidy workplace. This will often set a positive first impression and leave a good impact on your client.
3. Remove bacteria and allergens in carpet
We can all appreciate just how frustrating it is having a cold or flu and being tucked up in bed all day, but it’s not just the person on sick leave that is affected. Having someone off work ill in a sales environment at short notice could lead to others having to work twice as hard in the office to make up for the loss. Worse yet it might be that you cant fulfil what the client is asking off you causing them to potentially withdraw from using your company.
When flu becomes airborne the carpet acts like a filter, capturing all of the bacteria and holding onto it. When your clients, staff or guests walk on the carpet and disturb the bacteria it becomes airborne, again causing others to become infected leading to more people off work.
Help your business save money in the long run by having your office carpets cleaned regularly.
4. Clean spilt liquids and Food
If you are like any other commercial premises then you more then likely have a drinks station for your staff and clientele. More often than not mistakes happen no matter how hard you try to avoid.
This can lead to all types of liquids being spilled onto the carpets from coffee to energy drinks or even wine at a celebration event. Food can also be a big problem if staff eat at their desks and they drop crumbs, sandwich fillings and many other types of food debris.
This can lead to severe soiling which cannot be removed from everyday hoovering or a quick wipe.
The biggest problem we find is customers attempting to remove the stain themselves, often resulting in making more of a problem in doing so.

5. Cleaner air circulation in the office
Large amounts of dander, dust and microscopic organisms make their way into your office and your carpets. They can be difficult to get out sometimes through conventional cleaning methods, such as by vacuuming.
They are often buried deep within the carpet fibers, making them difficult to remove on your own. They will easily disperse into the air as you walk across the carpets.
These irritants build up over time inside your carpet. This can create an environment that can be difficult to breathe in. Their presence, especially in large quantities, may cause allergic reactions. This includes asthma, stuffed or agitated sinuses, and various flu-like symptoms.
A professional office carpet clean gets down deep and penetrates through to the lowest portions of your carpet, at a high temperature and pressure by doing so it’s removing and cleaning particles too small for you to see, but not so small that they cannot affect your body.

6. Stop carpet traffic lanes
Traffic lanes are areas in your office where people repeatedly walk – like hallways, doorways and around furniture. These areas see the most amount of traffic and are therefore prone to soiling, creating “Traffic lanes”.
Less-used rooms or those that are least walked on, remain clean and show little sign of wear and tear. The main way to prevent traffic lanes from appearing is to remove your shoes. However, when working in an office environment this isn’t possible.
We recommend as an alternative have a stiff bristle foot mat fitted at the entrance of each room this will remove up to 70% of debris from someone’s shoes before entering onto the carpet. We also recommend having a professional Carpet Cleaning Company attend every 3 months to carry out a routine clean.

7. Remove carpet odours
Carpet odours can be one of the toughest smells to remove. During the carpets’ lifetime, we’re sure you can imagine just how much dirt gathers within the carpet along with food, drinks, ink, dust and a bunch of other things too. To give you an idea an industrial carpet can hold up to 4 times its weight in dirt, which is incredible!
