To the eye of the beholder, carpet floor beautifies and styles up the workspace. The carpet gives people a comfortable feeling and warms their underfoot. These carpets are subject to wear and tear since anyone whether employees, guest or clients, etc. are literally walking onto it every day. Carpets can be placed at any space except in bathrooms. Our main goal is to have your carpet properly and regularly cleaned to beautify the place, increase carpet life expectancy and promotes a healthy indoor environment. When choosing carpets, the owner needs to think of the long term of maintaining it. Therefore, these are the following of basic principle of maintaining fresh indoor air quality with carpet cleanings:
Identify the type of dirt and dust while vacuuming as follows:
- Invisible particles
This is the type of dirt that people are unable to be seen with our bare eyes. These dust and dirt can harm an individual’s health. When any individual breathe-in those particles, it can lead to respiratory problems.
- Visible Particles
This dirt is visible to our naked eyes such as sand, fur and hair, etc.
- Large Particles
This is the biggest type of dirt that can be obviously been seen by people such as candy wrappers, hair tie, stapler bullets, coins, leaves torn paper, paper hole punch and paper clips.
One of the best approaches to vacuum them is to use a vacuum machine on a slow and gentle manner. This will allow the carpet fibres to vibrate and the vacuuming machine could then collect all the dust at once in the cleaners. Most people mistakenly using the vacuum hastily and at a very fast speed which eventually misses collecting the significant dust and dirt. People will eventually become tired to repeatedly vacuum at the same place because it’s not properly cleaned. Therefore, vacuuming slowly will efficiently remove the dust and dirt completely from the area. Another greatest way if to select the best vacuum cleaners that include a powerhead or brushes on its head. It is ineffective to vacuum without the brush on its head. Not only that, the brush helps consistently maintain the carpet by sucking up more dirt and dust and lifting any pile of dust that stuck on the carpet.
Even a place or area that you seldom or rarely use must consistently to vacuum from time to time because this dirt and other microorganisms’ particles can enter the building through the ventilation or heating system or other entrees like open windows or doors and even small holes. Vacuuming can be on a daily or weekly basis but depends on the traffic areas. For instance, hotel lobbies which have carpet floors, the cleaners have to vacuum it every day due to high traffic areas but some areas that are less traffic such as seldom used function room can be left alone to vacuum for another time.
It is a great idea to place rugs at an indoor and outdoor area as well as at the entrance of your property that acts as a barrier system which prevents unwanted sand or soils enter the premises carpet. People’s shoes are the main source for dragging the dirt onto the carpet areas. The first barrier is the outdoor rugs that which help to remove muddy liquids from shoes and large dirt falls onto the indoor carpet. The second barrier system is the indoor rugs that remove any missing outdoor dirt and particles. As having more rugs or mats throughout the building, there will likely more remove moisture and dirt enter the premises. Another best place to put the mat is on the kitchen floors. These rugs need to be cleaned regularly that depends on the usage and dirt collected on the rugs. If your area has more raining weathers, that there will likely more cleaning on your rugs. Ideally, the rugs should be vacuumed as same frequency as carpets, steam-clean, deep-clean and broom beating. The traditional method of broom beating is by beating the carpet with broomsticks at the outside area, shake the dirt off and finally let it dry with the outdoor air for a day. Without cleaning the rugs, the dirt accumulated may defeat the purpose of placing there in the first place. The advantage of having these rugs or mats in the area helps to maintain your carpet for a very long time, saves money and promote attractive space.
Specific cleaning spot
Most people try to keep away from cleaning on the specific areas on their own because they afraid of damaging the carpet. This can likely to happen if the person does not overdo it. Beware that rubbing those stains will spread around the carpet and may distort the carpets pile shape. It will be wise to remove immediately on any spills and do not wait till it dries off because leaving the stains for too long can be stuck on the carpet permanently. In the end, we want to avoid whatever it takes that it will look unpleasant looking carpet. All you have to do is to have a damp cloth to remove the spillage but if the spillage unsuccessfully removes then try using a small amount of cleaning detergent to remove the spillage. Excessive use of detergent can leave a sticky residue which also dust and dirt tend to stick on the carpet. Another magic way to remove the stain by using spray carpet cleaner with the cloth and dab the stain, working from the outside to its centre and dry it off. Heavy items such as a vase or pile of books place in on top of the stain and leave the cloth and heavy items for the whole night. The next day the stained area will magically disappear from the carpet.
During drying after the spillage, it is incredibly important to maintain a carpet. The reason why we want to dry up as fast as possible are as follows:
- Browning colour or discolouration of the carpet may occur. Nylon carpet material tends to discolour which came from the jute backing to the carpet surface.
- Leaving the spillage and liquidness for too long can cause to grow microorganisms which lead to release an unpleasant odour.
- People can potentially harm themselves from slipping and falling from the carpet to hard floor surfaces.
- The carpet can easily become dirty and accumulate dust that brought from the people’s shoes or pets especially hat high traffic areas. Wet carpet can make people uncomfortable and a nuisance to other people.
A couple of things that help to minimize the drying time as follows:
- Good air ventilation that allows dry faster and removes out the moisture from the building by opening windows or doors.
- Switch on the air condition and ventilation system to help remove the air.
- Install equipment such as ceiling fans that move the air in the building
- Apply the right carpet cleaners that will prevent the carpet to over wet.
- The humidity and air temperature affect the drying time.
- Choose a type of carpet such as nylon, polyester, berbers and wool, etc. that are stain-resistant and protect from absorbance.
