Commercial Carpet Cleaning Services for the Northern Virginia Area
Deciding when is the best time to have your commercial property carpets professionally cleaned is a debatable topic for most business owners and property managers. Basing this decision on the amount of foot traffic your company sees daily could help determine when it is time to have your property serviced. However, there are several more factors to take into consideration.
Despite the potential to track in water and dirt, your carpets may stay cleaner for an extended amount of time in the fewer traffic periods since they will not accumulate as many allergens. During the warmer months, pollen, dust, and airborne pollutants enter your business through open doors and windows. If you did not have your carpets cleaned in the fall, that contamination makes an unhealthy indoor environment. When you seal everything up for winter months and keep doors and windows closed, everything stays trapped inside, and your carpet holds it all, adding to the polluted air. Professional cleaning of the carpets in your business reduces and eliminates those spring and summer pollutants and makes it easier for your employees to breathe when they are inside.
Faster Carpet Drying
It is easy to believe that freshly cleaned carpets dry faster in the warmer weather, but that’s not always true. Carpets may dry slightly quicker in the winter due to lower humidity that helps moisture evaporate more quickly. Professional carpet cleaners, such as our team at SERVPRO of Dale City/Lake Ridge and SERVPRO of Woodbridge/Lorton, also have high-powered fans to allow quicker drying so you can enjoy your clean carpets and revel in the warmth and insulation they bring to colder months.
Holds the Value Longer
Regular professional cleaning extends the life of your carpet. Even if you can’t see the stains, soil, and pollutants on your carpet, there’s a tremendous amount you do not see that is slowly but surely wearing away at your carpet.
Cleanliness Impresses Your Clients
You have heard of the saying, “Dress to Impress.” Well, the same goes for how your company looks to your current or potential clients. With your lobby being where people enter and exit your business, chances are it is also one of the highest traffic areas in your facility. As a result, the floor and carpet in your lobby gather even more soil and grime than other business areas. To ensure you are generating the best impression possible, make certain you clean high traffic areas more often than other areas.
