cleaningOffice carpets put up with a lot of things every day – traffic, dirty shoes, heavy equipment, spills and much more. These things can make your carpet look faded and worn out over time.

With carpets, constant care and maintenance is the best thing to do. It is always better to maintain the look of your carpet rather than make repair or replace when they get major damage or totally worn out.

Use preventative measures

Prevention is better than cure, right? This also applies to your carpet. There are a lot of ways to prevent damages to your carpet and keep them looking at its best for years to come!

  • Outdoor mats at entry doors
  • Use rugs in high traffic areas
  • Do not drag equipment over the carpet
  • Prevent food and drink spills
  • Annual carpet cleaning

Outdoor mats at entry doors

Outdoor mats should be durable and tough enough to withstand daily wipe of shoes. Outdoor mats will collect dust, dirt and debris allowing people to wipe their shoes as they come in.

Use rugs in high traffic areas

Areas such as hallways, foyers and conference rooms can be the common place for office workers to gather. The carpet can be susceptible to daily wear and tear so make sure you place rugs on strategic places. Rugs and mats can be a focal point, that are changed to suit the season.

Do not drag equipment over the carpet

Never drag an office equipment or furniture over the carpet. This can ruin the padding under your carpet. When you have to rearrange furniture, use a trolley and lift the furniture.

Prevent food and drink spills

Food and drink spills can damage your carpet so if possible, ask your employees to comply with no food or drink policy while inside the office. You can also create an eating zone area inside the office where they can eat freely without the fear of having your carpet stained.

Annual carpet cleaning

Getting your carpet steam cleaned annual or even twice a year if need be will remove all the deep down residual dirt and grime that can rub at the base of your carpet and cause premature wear on your carpets.

Maintain your carpet regularly and it will look like new for longer and can make your office look better for a long time!
