Carpet is plush, comfortable flooring we have at home to provide warmth, and a squashy, snug feeling under foot. In the office, carpets help absorb sound, offer more choice of patterns and colours, and help to enhance the overall aesthetic, including visual brand cohesion across the full working environment.
This valuable flooring type comes with a huge range of benefits in exchange for what is always a substantial initial cost for the materials and the installation.
For the sake of continual benefits and avoiding carpet replacement, it is important to keep your carpets clean. Additionally, you don’t just want to get them carpets cleaned once when they’re actually looking pretty grim, but actually to have them cleaned regularly by professionals. If you’re not convinced, consider the following five benefits to keeping your carpets clean:
Carpets can easily become soiled and dull when they are not cleaned properly. For potential clients, a consistent brand image matters, and if they visit your offices and see a carpet that is not looking its best, what does that say about your attention to detail, as a company they are considering doing business with?
Additionally, a carpet in the home can really elevate how it looks and feels when it is fluffy and clean, and do quite the opposite when it is dull and stained. In the UK we spend billions on home improvements every year, when simple maintenance and care could leave expensive improvements like carpets lasting so much longer, and ensure they continue to look beautiful.
Aesthetically, daily vacuuming and regular professional carpet cleans will keep your flooring looking its very best, enhancing your overall office or home decor design.
2. Benefits To Family/ Employees
Regular carpet cleaning provides a huge range of benefits to the people who work or live around that flooring, including:
- Improved Air Quality & Hygiene – Professional carpet cleaning kills dust mites and other allergens, as well as dirt and bacteria lurking in the deep parts of the pile that can’t be reached by vacuuming.
- A Lovely Smell – Carpets that are not cleaned regularly can be smelly, which is not nice for anybody who is around the flooring. Regular vacuuming and professional steam cleans remove the source of the bad smell, and replace it with a fresh, pleasant scent.
- A Better Foot Feel – Regular vacuuming and professional cleaning keeps carpets feeling lovely and soft underfoot, ensuring the home continues to feel cosy and comfortable.
Carpeting takes up so much of a room and cannot be ignored, so the cleaner and fresher it is, the more those around the carpet will benefit.
Dirt and debris in a carpet causes the fibres to deteriorate, split and generally degrade. Daily vacuuming ensures that the carpet is regularly cleaned of debris at the higher parts of the fibres. Deep shampooing and steaming is required on a regular basis to budge dirt that is deeper in the carpet, and that has adhered to the fibres.
Both daily general vacuuming and regular deep cleans ensure that the carpet remains in excellent condition, free from the dirt that causes it to degrade quicker than it should. This not only keeps the carpet in immaculate condition, but also ensures that you save money long-term because you don’t have to replace the carpet prematurely.
4. Quicker Professional Cleans
The more regularly you clean your carpets, the less time it takes to have them cleaned each time. Professional cleaners have to spend longer cleansing heavily soiled carpets to work out the grime and debris, which doesn’t build up if the carpets have a regular professional clean. For the best possible carpet maintenance it is best to have daily vacuuming and then professional cleaning by qualified technicians about twice a year, if not more often, depending on how heavily the carpet is used.
Flooding, large scale staining or other soiling of the carpet should be dealt with by professionals as quickly as possible as and when it happens so that the stain doesn’t get driven into the fibres and cause long-term damage.
5. A Boost To Productivity
Scientific studies tell us that the work environment is high on the list when it comes to the motivation and happiness of employees during their time at the office. All kinds of factors come into that environment ‘umbrella’, including the social side of things, and ergonomic factors of the space. However, the physical environment itself, including the carpets, form part of that overall satisfaction.
With something as simple as carpet cleaning in addition to a high standard of other contributing factors you can boost the happiness, health and productivity of your employees, as well as potentially boosting talent acquisition and employee retention, too.
