Cleaning Commercial Carpeting is different than Cleaning Residential Carpet because of multiple factors. First, you have to consider the type of carpet being cleaned. If you never thought of this, look closely at the carpeting in your home versus the carpeting in your business establishments. Typically, your home will have a much plusher thick carpeting than your business. The carpeting in businesses is usually a short pile, glue down carpet made of olefin.
Commercial Carpet is made using different material than residential carpet and it is installed differently. Whereas, residential carpet usually has a nice thick pad underneath to give it extra cushion, commercial carpet is usually glued directly to the sub-floor.
New trends in many offices are to use carpet tiles as an alternative to rolled out carpet. Carpet tiles are similar to olefin carpet, because they are made of similar material. And, although they are installed tile by tile instead of being rolled out, they are normally glued down to the subfloor.
What does all this mean?
It means that the carpets in Commercial buildings should be cleaned differently than in your home. So, be careful who you call to do the cleaning of your commercial carpeting or carpet tiles. Traditional steam cleaning or hot water extraction should not be used to clean this type of carpet. The hot water and steam method of cleaning puts too much pressure and water into the carpet and can lead to delamination of your carpet or carpet tiles. If this happens, your carpet could become loose, stretched out, or puckered. Loose carpet, or wrinkles in the carpet can cause a trip hazard in your facility, as well as the need for replacement much sooner than you may have expected. To prevent this, make sure you use a Carpet Cleaner that specializes in cleaning Commercial Carpets.
