Spotlight on Safety: Clean Carpets

Many businesses choose commercial carpet as their floor covering of choice. One of the biggest compliments of commercial carpet is that it hides wear and tear much better than a hardwood or a laminate...which is a blessing in disguise.

Carpet does a great job at hiding stains because it’s made of a fibrous material. That means that it soaks up anything that it comes in contact with...including bacteria. Additionally, an “out of sight, out of mind” approach to cleaning your carpet can do you more harm than good. A poorly cleaned carpet can cause a host of health problems including headaches, watery eyes and asthma attacks.

The first step in keeping these issues at bay is making sure you have your carpet regularly cleaned. If you’re doing it yourself, make sure your vacuum has a HEPA filter. If you are using a professional cleaning company, ask to see the equipment they will be using in your facility.

Secondly, schedule a regular deep carpet cleaning to get all of those bits and pieces out of the embedded carpet fibers. You can rent a commercial cleaning unit, but we recommend calling a professional.

Invest in solid rubber mats and place them in the doorways so that your employees and guests can wipe their feet before entering your building.

And lastly, replace your old carpeting. If the stains aren’t coming out and the smells aren’t going away, then it’s time. Bear in mind that new carpet can also stimulate respiratory issues akin to allergic reactions (due to the chemicals used when installing) so try to schedule your installations during a period of time when the building will be empty.
