    Reasons Businesses Skip Carpet Cleaning — and Why They Shouldn’t

    A carpet
    The workspace is a reflection of your business. With that in mind, keeping it clean is a top priority. Yet plenty of companies forget about what's below their feet. Take a look at the top reasons why companies skip commercial carpet cleaning — and why this service is necessary.

    Budget Concerns

    Sticking to a budget is an obvious necessity to keep your business going and growing. But sacrificing cleanliness at the cost of saving a few dollars isn't worth it. While you will have to pay a commercial company for carpet cleaning services, the benefits may outweigh the costs.

    No one enjoys looking at dirty flooring. The better your office or company space looks, the more productive employers are and the more likely it is that you'll gain or retain customers. You may recoup the money you spend (or more) on keeping your business clean in worker productivity, sales, or new customers.

    If a professional carpet cleaning wasn't in last year's budget, don't forget to add it in to the new one for this year. When setting a budget, consider the quality of the cleaning contractor versus the price. Going for a low-ball offer to cut corners in your budget may not get you the results you want.

    Damage Plans

    Carpets with tears, burns, holes, or clear signs of wear require replacement — especially in the professional setting. If you're planning to replace your business's flooring but have yet to schedule a new install, a carpet cleaning service is still necessary.

    Even though a professional carpet cleaning won't restore your flooring fully, it can remove the appearance of major wear. It's also possible that the damage or wear isn't as severe as previously thought. If this is the case, you may not need a replacement. A carpet cleaning expert can remove the dirt and grime, potentially saving you money on new flooring.

    Aging Issues

    Carpet can last for up to a decade, according to International Association of Certified Home Inspectors. With the right care, your company's flooring may even last longer.

    When commercial carpet nears the end of its lifespan, it's easy to skip professional cleaning. It may seem like cleaning won't have an effect, following years of use and build-up. Instead of giving up on your aging carpet, keep it clean — professionally. The experts know how to safely handle older flooring, cleaning it without adding wear or causing serious damage.

    Assuming Cleanliness

    Many business owners examine their flooring and assume it looks fine. While it may seem clean on a surface level, look deeper. Dirt and dust aren't the only reasons to regularly clean your company's carpeting. Along with these issues, mold, mildew, and allergens can all cause problems.

    Mold and other allergens can cause reactions that range from a runny nose to asthma flare-ups. Failure to maintain your business's carpets may put your employees and customers at risk. While vacuuming can reduce the likelihood of mold growth and decrease allergens, this type of light cleaning isn't enough for a commercial establishment.

    Your business needs the power and expertise of a professional cleaning service to keep your carpets mold-, mildew-, and allergen-free — even if they look clean.

    One-Time Cleaning

    Hiring a carpet cleaning company once a year isn't enough. Residential carpets typically require a deep clean one to two times a year (depending on wear). In contrast, a high-traffic office, retail, or other commercial space may require this service more frequently, sometimes even weekly or monthly.

    Your company's carpet cleaning cycle depends on several factors, such as the traffic level, the health of the people who regularly use the space, and the type of business you own or manage. A carpet cleaning contractor can help you to determine the business's individual needs based on these factors.
