Growing up a sports nut, I always understood the strength of a sound strategy.
If you are a facility manager, having a carpet cleaning strategy can keep your carpet visually appealing and long lasting. But if you don’t have a strategy in place, it can be a daunting task to create one for your facility
Thankfully, Cleanlink.com released a comprehensive guide a few years ago focused on carpet cleaning strategies and we thought it would be best to share their guide along with some advice from The Carpet and Rug Institute.
The most basic strategies in keeping carpet clean are:
Effective entryway mats
A majority of the dirt that enters a building can be removed by walk-off mats. Remember to clean the mats on a regular basis, otherwise their soil-removing capability will be compromised.
Walk-off mats are effective tools in the fight against carpet soiling, but it is important to remember that they need to be cleaned too. These mats should be cleaned 1-3 times per day depending on how dirty they are.
Vacuum on a regular basis
Probably the most powerful cleaning method for carpet, and the simplest to use, is the vacuum cleaner. A daily or consistent vacuum cleaning program will pay off.
Vacuuming removes dirt and other particles that can damage carpet fibers. CRI’s Seal of Approval program certifies carpet cleaning solutions and equipment, including vacuums, to help keep carpet clean and long lasting. Here is a list of SOA-approved vacuum cleaners.
Remove stains and spills as soon as they appear
The most effective way to keep spots and stain from proliferating in your facility is to treat the spot as soon as it appears. Successfully removing a spot or stain is largely contingent upon how long the spot is allowed to “set” before removal. A quick response to cleaning a stain is also advisable to keep a stain from recurring. Often, clean water and a clean cloth will remove a large percentage of stains and spots.
When water alone is not enough, it is best to keep a Seal of Approval certified cleaning solution handy for those stains that are bound to happen.
Bonus Tip: Professional Carpet Cleaning
Professional carpet cleaning removes the dirt and stains that normal cleaning are not able to handle. A periodic deep cleaning restores the look of carpet by removing debris and stains you may be unable to remove.
By following these carpet cleaning tips you will be able to keep your facility’s carpet clean and long-lasting.
