Reasons to deep clean your office carpets regularly

Carpets can transform the interior of an office space. They can create a warm and welcoming environment that employees and customers will appreciate. However, carpets also retain a lot of dirt due to foot traffic and improper cleaning methods. It is important to deep clean your office carpets regularly - a sustainable contract cleaning service can be hired for these reasons.

Prevent allergens and bacteria from spreading

Carpets with a low pile and short fibres are common in offices. These types of floor covering can trap dust and bacteria, causing allergies and enabling the transfer of bacteria from the office to the home. A deep clean will help to prevent the spread of bacteria and improve the air quality in the office. Employees with hayfever or perversions to dust will be thankful.

Improve the appearance of your workspace

A lot of dirt can be pulled into an office from outside as employees and visitors walk over the carpet. If dirt accumulates in your carpets, they will begin to smell and discolour. Regular cleaning and maintenance can help to minimise dust and odour in the workspace. However, there are certain spills and stains, like coffee, that a vacuum cleaner cannot remove. Dirty carpets can often leave a bad impression on your clients. A professional cleaner can keep your carpets fresh, clean and spotless - improving the overall appearance of the office space.

Mould prevention

Mould is another aspect that can damage your carpets and degrade the office's cleanliness. It produces airborne spores, which thrive in filthy carpets. Mould growth increases during rainy months as moisture becomes trapped in damp carpets. The spores can cause allergic reactions such as sneezing, runny nose, red eyes and skin rashes. Employees or clients with extreme allergies can experience more severe reactions, such as shortness of breath. Deep cleaning office carpets on a regular basis will help to eradicate mould.

Deep cleaning office carpets can improve the office environment. It prevents the spread of bacteria, improves the overall appearance of the space and will enhance employee health and reduce absenteeism. It is recommended that office spaces must be vacuumed daily but professional deep cleaning should be done once or twice a year.
