Commercial Carpet Cleaning Myths Debunked

As a business owner, you probably have a lot on your mind aside from the condition of the carpets at your place of business. However, the cleanliness of your carpets can play a large role in first impressions as well as customer satisfaction. If you aren’t regularly scheduling commercial carpet cleanings for your Atlanta business because you’ve fallen prey to believing some of the myths that surround commercial carpet cleaning, here at Classic Commercial Services, we’re here to debunk the myths you may have heard!

Myths You May Have Believed About Commercial Carpet Cleanings

“The carpets are only a year old, so they don’t need to be cleaned.”

If you’re under the impression that you can wait to clean your carpets until they look dirty, you are doing your carpets a huge disservice. By the time the carpet looks dirty, it’s probably too late to get them looking as good as new again. The more dirt that gets caught in your carpet, the easier it will be for the fibers to break down, making your carpet wear out faster. To keep your carpets looking new, and to increase their lifespan, you should have your carpets professionally cleaned at least once per year.

“I don’t need to hire commercial carpet cleaners, I can rent a machine and clean the carpets myself!”

Regardless of the size of your place of business, trying to clean the carpets yourself is just not as efficient or as powerful as hiring a carpet cleaning company. Do-it-yourself carpet cleaners tend to put too much water into the carpet. This not only makes it so that the carpet takes longer to dry, but it will also make the carpet susceptible to damage, mold, and mildew. It is also likely that the cleaning formulas used for rented carpet cleaners will remove color from carpets and make them appear to be older than they are.

“I can just keep the carpet fresh with a sprinkle-on deodorizer for carpets.”

If you’re more concerned with the smell of the carpets in your business than the actual look, you may think that a sprinkle-on deodorizer is a good option. However, these products often contain talcum powder. Talcum powder will not dissolve in water, and it is often left behind when you vacuum. This means that when you do go to eventually clean your carpets, as the water mixes with the talcum powder, there are likely going to be noticeable stains in your carpet.

When you hire professional carpet cleaners, you will be hiring experts who know the right products to use on carpets, and who have the machinery needed to effectively clean the carpets at your place of business. Instead of ignoring the needs of your carpet or trying the do-it-yourself methods, call Classic Commercial Services for the commercial carpet cleaning you need for your Atlanta business. We promise, you’ll love the way your carpet looks, feels, and smells when we’re done, which will boost the appearance of your place of business and increase customer satisfaction.
