Recommended Cleaning Schedule

Keeping It Clean

Every business is different, so it’s not surprising that every business has different needs. This includes how often the carpet needs to be cleaned. Naturally the decision rests on a variety of factors that include everything from the size and type of the business to the amount of daily foot traffic on the carpeted areas.

So, how often should you clean carpet?

The short answer is this: Schedule carpet cleanings often enough to avoid any buildup of mold, mildew, dust, dirt and other problems that can occur without proper care.

More specifically, you will need to consider the type of business you run, which plays a big part in the amount of wear and tear your carpet endures. At the same time, it’s important to think about the size of your business and how many people walk on the carpet each day. This includes both workers and visitors. You should also be aware that people track in different types of dirt, which is often related to the type of business you operate.

But other factors exist that extend beyond the nature of your business. These include things like:

  • The quality, color, and style of your carpet
  • The climate where your business is located.
  • Foul weather takes a toll on carpeted areas since people naturally track in unwanted dirt and moisture.

Whatever the case, every business wants to project a positive image, and cleanliness plays a big role in this area. When your carpet is clean and inviting, people assume that you operate an efficient business. Stanley Steemer’s hot-water extraction method of cleaning not only suctions dirt and grime from your carpet, but it also helps to restore the carpet texture.

Considering all these factors, commercial carpet typically needs to be cleaned anywhere from every month to every 18 months. If traffic is heavy, then a six-month schedule will probably be necessary. On the other hand, lighter traffic and less wear and tear means that every year to 18 months should suffice.

Customer Testimonials
They steam cleaned wall-to-wall carpet in 3 rooms: living room, dining room and family room. The carpet is more than 20 years old and the blond color of a golden lab retriever.
When I made the appointment I explained that I had a heavily soiled traffic area in the family room. I also had brownish stains from leaky plants. When the technician arrived and did the inspection, he gave a range of possible outcomes for the heavily soiled and stained areas. He said they could disappear, get lighter or stay the same. Mentally, I translated what he said as: I'm not a miracle worker, but I'll do my best. Well, his best was pretty impressive. They exceeded my expectations, especially in the family room where the high-traffic area was black. I couldn't believe the change. I am very pleased with the results. Job well done and worth the price!
