You spend a small fortune on carpeting for your office space, giving careful attention to every nuance of color, pattern and texture to make sure the carpet enhances the appearance of your work environment. Over time, of course, the carpet gets soiled, so periodically you hire someone to clean it. However after a few years, you notice the carpet's appearance doesn't bounce back as well after the sporadic restorative "cleanings." As time progresses, you look around and realize that the once beautiful carpet is now worn and damaged, giving the entire office and unkempt appearance. Once again your carpet needs to be replaced. Sound familiar? Don't feel bad, many otherwise cost-conscious businesses routinely waste thousands, even millions of dollars simply because they don't appreciate how proper maintenance can preserve the appearance of their carpeting and extend it's effective lifespan...almost indefinitely.
It may surprise you to learn that simple everyday soil is the single greatest factor in the destruction of your carpets. Soil is loaded with silicas, resins, gums, greases and fats. Silica is highly abrasive and when ground into the carpet fibers with regular foot traffic, it will destroy your carpeting over time. The greases, gums, and fats are binders - and attract more soil, hastening the destructive process. If the soil is not removed regularly, it gets embedded into the carpet below the visible surface, where it continues to attract more soil and create more damage - ultimately resulting in discoloration and flattening of the fibers and tufts. Because much of this damage happens so gradually and below the visible surface of the carpet, you may not notice it until the carpet's appearance becomes unacceptable - and the damage is irreversible.
How long do you want or need your carpet to last? That is a question you might not hear from every carpet maintenance company but we feel it's a vital first step in the formulation of any maintenance program. For example, a business planning to relocate or redecorate in the near future has a different maintenance need than one that needs maximum utility from their existing floorcoverings. At CLEAN, we consider your strategic, budgetary and operational needs before we create your specific maintenance program. The result is a maintenance system that is responsive as well as responsible, giving you a maintenance program that is exactly what your operation needs - no more, no less. And because our service includes a rigorous monitoring and evaluation process, it can easily be altered to meet any changes or unforseen situations.
How often will your space need maintenance? Perhaps not as often as you might think. This is particularly true when problem areas are properly identified and given regular professional maintenance. At CLEAN, we conduct a detailed survey of your operation to identify important factors regarding maintenance specifications, soiling issues, carpet type, and traffic volume. This data is then used to generate a color-coded frequency floormap which forms the basis for your customized carpet maintenance program. Obviously, some workspaces require more maintenance than others. But while other services charge for cleaning your entire space with each visit, the customized maintenance schedule from CLEAN means you will only receive service on areas that really need cleaning. The result is a carpet maintenance program that will maintain the appearance and longevity of your carpeting and do so in the most efficient, cost effective manner possible.
