Carpet Cleaning

How Often Should You Clean Carpeting?

Regular cleaning is necessary to protect carpet against premature wear. If you wait until your carpeting looks dirty, it’s probably filthy. Worse yet, carpeting that isn’t cleaned regularly can become a breeding ground for bio-pollutants. Carpeting behaves like the largest air filter in your building, collecting soil, bacteria, pollens, chemicals and other contaminants. Regular, professional cleaning is important not only to protect your investment in floor coverings, but for the wellbeing of employees too.

Did You Know?

The average lifespan of commercial carpeting is seven to eight years, though it often begins to look old and worn after just a few years. All manufacturers recommend regularly scheduled maintenance to keep it looking good and significantly extend its useful lifetime. With proper maintenance, the lifetime of carpeting can often be doubled.


The Science of Clean

We start with an evaluation of the existing conditions to understand the fiber type, pile configuration, and the traffic and wear patterns to help determine the proper method of cleaning. Achieving the best results can be challenging because each carpet and each environment is different. The same cleaning process does not work for every situation. To understand these differences requires a practiced eye and methodical approach.

Commercial is Not the Same as Residential

Commercial floor coverings are not the same as those used in a residential environment. Pile density, yarn size, construction and other factors vary between commercial and residential carpeting. The methods used to clean residential carpeting are rarely up to the task in a commercial setting. NBS only does commercial cleaning.

If it’s been more than a few months since your carpet was cleaned, it’s probably time. NBS Commercial Cleaning Solutions can help you create a healthier, better-looking workplace.
