In many offices and other commercial buildings you will see carpets in hallways, offices, lobbies and more. Carpet is a great flooring as it can help dampen noise, improve energy efficiency, and enhance the aesthetics of the building. However, carpets require frequent vacuuming and carpet cleaning. Dirty carpets can be very distracting and impact the work environment in many ways. For those who may underestimate the effects of dirty carpets, Baker Sandoval Cleaning is happy to explain.
Can Dirty Carpet Make You Sick?
In the workplace, carpets are exposed to dirt, moisture and contaminants. When drinks and food fall on the floor, the surface may be cleaned for sure, but deep down in the fibers, food and drinks can lead to mold. Dirt and moisture is another breeding ground for mold and bacteria, not to mention the dirt and pollen that is brought into the building. Carpet easily absorbs contaminants and will then slowly disperse them into the air. Carpet is one of the major contributors to poor indoor air quality. Carpet can be the source for mold spores, germs, viruses and bacteria that is flooding the air we breathe, and as a result, the employees, visitors, and customers can become sick. Illness can greatly impact the business which is why it is important to keep the carpet clean. Clean carpet will help to promote a healthier workplace and more productivity.
Dirt Reduces the Life of Carpets
Carpets are a major investment to the building, as they can help dampen noise, reduce distractions, and even improve energy efficiency. However, replacing carpet prematurely is not ideal. Carpet replacements not only are expensive but they take time. The time it takes to replace carpet can put a halt on office hours and the business’s profits. A business’s operations are essential and should not be impacted unnecessarily. To help extend the life of the carpets, they need to be deep cleaned every 6 months. By removing the dirt and other contaminates in the carpets, it helps to prevent fiber deterioration. Dirt can break down the carpet fibers which is what causes soil and thinning on carpet. To help extend the life as well as the beauty of the carpets, make sure to schedule regular carpet cleaning. In most workplaces, such as offices, retail, and medical buildings, often carpet needs to be cleaned every 6 months. However, for workplaces that are exposed to more dirt, debris, and particles such as workshops, they may need carpet cleaning every 3 to 4 months.
