HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOUR BUSINESS CLEAN THEIR CARPETS?

Brandon Acker

Dirty, worn and stained carpeting can negatively affect your customers’ opinion of your business. You might have the best company in the neighborhood, but appearances will make or break you in the long term. To ensure that potential customers don't take one look at your carpet and turn on their heels, it's important to keep your carpets looking spotless and free of dirt, debris and bacteria. Find out how often you should clean your carpets to impress your customers with help from ServiceMaster Clean®.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU CLEAN YOUR CARPETS?

The answer depends on a variety of factors. We recommend in-house vacuuming every day, but professional cleanings can vary anywhere from once every six months to twice a month! Professional, deeper cleans rely on several factors, including the traffic in your business, the type of climate in your area and the type of carpeting you have. Consult a reputable cleaning company to determine how often your business should utilize professional cleanings.

HOW TO CLEAN YOUR COMPANY’S CARPETS

Cleaning your carpets yourself, along with calling in professionals often, can significantly extend the life of your carpets and keep your office looking beautiful. Use these steps to keep your carpeting pristine.

1. SPOT CLEAN ANY PROBLEM AREAS

Frequency: As needed

Individual stains can quickly ruin the overall appearance of commercial carpeting. As a general rule of thumb, the longer you leave stains, the harder they will be to remove. There is, however, a fast and easy solution. If administered immediately, spot cleaning can be very effective at removing tough stains. Your custodial service can perform this task with a carpet cleaning product and an industrial cloth, which are used together to blot out the stain carefully. For stubborn stains, you may need to call outside experts.

2. VACUUM REGULARLY

Frequency: Every day

To keep your carpeting looking fresh, we strongly recommend a daily vacuuming, especially in high-traffic areas like entranceways and corridors. Beyond improving the carpet's overall appearance, vacuuming is a carpeting lifesaver because it prevents dirt from becoming embedded in the fibers.

3. HIRE PROFESSIONAL CARPET CLEANERS

Frequency: 

Heavy Traffic: 1 to 2 times a month

Moderate Traffic: 2 to 4 times per year

Light Traffic: 2 times per year

Investing in the services of professional carpet cleaners may seem like an unnecessary luxury. However, by paying for expert cleanings a few times a year, you're actively extending your carpet's lifespan at a fraction of the cost of a carpet replacement. Plus, some pesky stains and debris aren't removable without state-of-art treatments, which your in-house janitorial service doesn't have the equipment to administer.

To experience the difference of professional carpet cleanings for yourself, call up the experts at ServiceMaster Clean. Using modern deep-cleaning methods with innovative tools and cleaning solutions, our commercial carpet cleaning services will have your carpeting looking vibrant and healthy for years to come. We’ll work with you to create a comprehensive, customized cleaning program tailored to your specific company’s needs to ensure your carpets look their best.

5 WAYS JANITORIAL SERVICES HELP KEEP EMPLOYEES PRODUCTIVE

Brandon Acker

Everybody knows that employee productivity is crucial to a company’s success. Hard work, motivation and focus all play a part in creating dynamic, productive workers. This productivity starts with a clean, tidy space to get work done.

A clean work environment can make a world of difference in worker productivity. Learn five ways professional janitorial services can help keep worker productivity up with these tips from the experts at ServiceMaster Clean®.

HOW REGULAR JANITORIAL SERVICES CAN IMPROVE WORKER PRODUCTIVITY

The top five ways janitorial services positively affect productivity in the workplace include the following:

1. EMPLOYEES WILL USE FEWER SICK DAYS

Regularly scheduled office cleanings are a type of nonpharmaceutical intervention (NPI). According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), NPIs help to eliminate the flu virus from frequently touched items in high-traffic areas, like a facility or workplace. This helps decrease the risk of spreading viruses among employees. If the office stays clean, your staff can stay on track without having to take time off for avoidable illnesses.

Professional janitorial services include proven processes to ensure that all areas at high-risk for contamination get cleaned regularly. That way, your staff can stay focused, on task and present for every scheduled shift.

2. EMPLOYEES WILL BE LESS DISTRACTED

Time is money. At the end of the day, you hire your employees to do their work, not to spend valuable time tidying around the office. However, a cluttered workspace creates a cluttered mind.

With trash cans overflowing, dust everywhere and dirty or disorganized desks, it can be hard to concentrate on getting the job done. Their minds may wander, or they’ll take time to clean up the mess themselves instead of completing their daily tasks. Luckily, janitorial services ensure a consistently clean work environment so your staff can focus and perform their jobs to the best of their ability.

3. EMPLOYEES MAY FEEL HAPPIER

In addition to creating a healthier office, a clean work environment makes for a happier office. With dust-free desks and clean scents, your employees may even feel excited about coming into work, rather than showing up to a filthy, smelly, cluttered mess. When you start using professional cleaning services to keep your work environment clean, check in with your employees to determine if their moods and perception about work has improved.

4. EMPLOYEES WILL SPEND MORE TIME WORKING

According to the Cleaning Management Institute, when a building is cleaned for health standards as opposed to just making it look good, occupants get more work done and generally do a better job. Outsourcing your cleaning services helps ensure that your building is cleaned the right way in order to minimize the spread of illness and infections. Janitorial services also give your employees more time to work on their assignments, rather than spending their working hours cleaning or sanitizing their desks and shares spaces.

5. YOU’LL SAVE MONEY

The benefits of having a janitorial crew seem endless. While janitorial services can help keep your facility healthy, clean and organized, they also help your company save money. Outsourcing cleaning services can help you streamline your expenses since you only pay for services when you need them. You also won’t have to worry about having extra employees on your payroll that require salaries, bonuses, health care and other benefits.

We’ll work with you to create a customized cleaning program that meets your business’s specific needs and schedule. Learn more about our professional commercial janitorial services today.
