How often do you clean your carpets? Commercial flooring is a substantial investment for any business, so you’ll want to protect yours for years to come. After all, the longer your flooring lasts, the less it costs. Proactive, regularly scheduled maintenance can help remove soil before it builds up and damages carpet fibers. This can extend the life of the carpet, reducing the costs of restoration, replacement and/or disposal.

It may not be the first thing on your mind when you purchasing commercial flooring, but having a cleaning plan to keep it looking and performing best will certainly go a long way. However, vacuuming is simply not enough. Commercial carpeting should also be professionally cleaned at least two or three times per year at a minimum. Even then, higher traffic areas may require even more. This can ultimately depends on how much traffic is in the area and if mats are vacuumed or cleaned regularly.

Eagle Mat recommends putting together a vacuum schedule to keep your commercial carpets looking brand new. For example, we recommend vacuuming your carpet at least once per week at a minimum if you’re in a smaller workspace or office area. For high-traffic areas though, it is recommended to vacuum daily to remove dirt and grit to gathers in the carpet. By frequently vacuuming, this will help reduce the wear and tear on carpet fibers as well.

Even the most effective, consistent vacuuming may leave some soil behind though. Therefore, periodically cleaning will be necessary to improve it’s appearance and extend the life of your beautiful carpet flooring. Routine cleaning can also specifically remove oily or sticky soil, which has a tendency to attract and hold additional soil if not otherwise removed.

By implementing a routine carpet maintenance program with our highly trained cleaning professionals, you can preserve and maintain your floor covering and extend the life of your carpet investment. Our representatives will work with you in choosing the best products, methods, and plans to provide the correct solution for the needs of your facility. We will inspect your facility layout, traffic patterns, and hours of operation and then develop a comprehensive care program.
