Back to Basics: How to Keep Carpet Clean in Your Facility
Keeping carpet clean is an easy way to add to the overall appearance of your facility’s interior and CRI is here with some tips to help you keep carpet fresh, clean and lasting, especially with Seal of Approval-certified products.
The following tips cover the different aspects of a maintenance program you will need to keep your carpet looking great all year.
Vacuuming is the simplest and easiest way to keep carpet clean and lasting. Regular vacuuming is imperative to the life and beauty of your carpet. For high traffic areas, you should vacuum daily. Be sure to use a Seal of Approval-certified vacuum.
2. Interim Maintenance
Interim maintenance is a recently added aspect to the Seal of Approval program, but that does not minimize its importance. Interim maintenance is a scheduled frequency appearance cleaning for all traffic areas. Its purpose is to refresh carpet with a surface cleaning.
3. Deep Cleaning
You may know deep cleaning by a number of different names (i.e. hot-water extraction, steam cleaning), but deep cleaning is vital to the life of carpet. An annual deep cleaning will remove the deepest, ground-in dirt residing in your facility’s carpet.
4. Spot Removal
Spots and stains happen in almost any environment, but the most important thing you can do is treat the stain as soon as it happens. This will dramatically reduce the chance of the spot or stain resoiling. SOA Solutions are tested and certified for their ability to effectively remove stains and minimize resoiling.
As mentioned earlier, following these tips will allow you to keep your carpet beautiful and lasting throughout the year.
