5 Signs Your Office Carpet Needs To Be Professionally Cleaned
If you are a business owner or office manager you will possibly have the responsibility of organising the cleaning and maintenance regimes within your office, and part of that will be the carpet cleaning.
In normal circumstances, it might be sufficient for your day-to-day cleaners to do the regular vacuuming and occasional stain removal for your carpets, but ultimately you may need to take further action. That action is when it becomes necessary for you to arrange for the carpets in your office to be professionally cleaned by Office Cleaning Perth.
The question this begs is at what point do you make that call, and what are the signs you should you be looking for to tell you it is time for professional cleaners to come and use their skills and experience to get your carpets looking at their very best again. Here are five of those signs.
#1 Increased Instances of Allergies
If any of your office staff are prone to hay fever attacks or have shown ever-increasing signs of allergies, such as sneezing or skin irritation, it could be a sign that your carpet is playing host to a multitude of allergens and bacteria. These microscopic nasties, which include dust mites and pollen will pretty much remain permanently if a carpet is not cleaned properly.
Even daily vacuuming might not be enough so that is why having the offending carpet professionally deep cleaned is the answer. This will remove the allergens and bacteria, and make your office a healthier place to work in.
#2 Unpleasant Odours
If you notice any unpleasant smells as you walk through the office, or your employees are complaining of them, other than the slim chance that it is one of the staff’s exotic sandwich fillings causing the smell, it is almost certainly as a result of dirty carpets.
All sorts of substances will start to cause an odour if they have been left to fester deep within the fibres of a carpet. This can include the milk in tea or coffee which has dripped on to the carpet, crumbs form cakes and biscuits, or it might be mildew building up as a result of dampness or moisture in the office.
#3 Visible Stains That You Cannot Remove
We do not really need to say too much about this as it is the most obvious of them all. If your daily cleaner cannot remove any stains then the only option, unless you want to have a permanently stained carpet in your office, is to hire a professional carpet cleaner to come and remove the stains for you.
#4 Significant Foot Traffic
If you have areas within your office that see high levels of foot traffic, then it follows that these areas are going to become in need of cleaning more often than any other. The issue here is that they will also look dirtier and grubbier than other parts of the carpet, and the carpet will thus end up looking like a patchwork quilt.
Calling in professional carpet cleaners on a regular basis will ensure that all parts of the carpet are cleaned properly and regularly, and they should also be able to advise how to keep high foot traffic areas protected.
#5 They Simply Look Dull And Grubby
This is what we could probably put under the category of ‘seeing is believing’. By that, we mean you looking at your office carpets, seeing that they are grubby, dull, and lifeless, and knowing that it is time for them to be professionally cleaned.
