Do I Need Dry Cleaning For My Office Carpet?

April 18, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 205

Unless there is a specific cleaning requirement by your carpet installer, you are not compelled to dry clean your office carpet. To decide whether you need dry cleaning for your carpet, you need to weigh the following considerations:

1. Is there electric wiring below or around the carpeted flooring?

If there is electric wiring below or around the carpeted flooring, it cannot be cleaned using the wet system or you would risk short circuiting your electricity. Some offices with electric wiring below the carpeted platform do not clean it at all, fearing to damage the electric wiring. This fear is no longer necessary as there is effective professional dry cleaning service available to dry clean thoroughly, without introducing any moisture into the carpet.

2. Do you want to protect yourself and your staff from chemical exposure by using organic products to clean your carpet?

Chemical residue from carpet shampoo may remain in the carpet after shampooing treatment especially if it is not thoroughly rinsed after cleaning. If you want to minimize unnecessary chemical exposure in the office then dry cleaning using organic cleaning product is your solution.

Carpet cleaning using organic products like biodegradable maize and wood is equally effective, if not better, compared to carpet shampooing, as these sponge like compound thoroughly absorb dirt within the carpet pile which would be discarded at the end of the cleaning treatment.

3. Do you want the convenience of being able to use the carpet right after cleaning?

Common complains about conventional wet carpet cleaning is the long down time because the it cannot be walked on after cleaning and would take half a day for the cleaned carpet to become dry. Many companies choose to clean their carpets in the evening after all staff have knocked off so that it can be left to dry overnight.

But there are also offices that operate 24 hours 7 days a week. These companies often end up not cleaning their office carpets as they find it too disruptive for their operations.

Dry carpet cleaning, as the name implies, cleans without using water. Your carpet remains dry throughout the cleaning treatment and carpet can be used immediately after treatment is completed. This dry carpet cleaning method does not only give you the convenience of minimal operation disruption during carpet cleaning treatment, you will also enjoy the health benefit from working in a clean and hygienic working environment. A clean carpet helps to improve indoor air quality which in turn helps to reduce manifestation of illness caused by indoor allergens.

4. Do you see the benefit of carpet cleaning using energy saving method?

To lessen disruption, most conventional shampooing would be done in the late afternoon after staff leaves the office. Carpet shampooing would typically end by early evening and the Air Conditioner would be turned on over night to speed up the carpet drying process, so the carpet can be used the next day when staff returns back to office.

Leaving the office A/C switched on overnight incur a lot of energy and electricity bill. While carpet shampooing invoice may not be high, facility manager may overlook the additional energy usage and electricity bill incurred during overnight drying process.

If you embrace energy saving practice to help save the Earth, then dry carpet cleaning is your best solution for your office carpet maintenance.
