Business owners always have a lot of work in their hands. In between managing the business, staffing, seeking financing, payroll, marketing the business and serving customers, they also have to think about maintaining a clean business environment. In many cases, business owners choose to hire an in-house cleaner to ensure the carpeted floors, washrooms and every surface, such as tables, are spotlessly clean. In return, the cleaner is paid a salary, allowances, pension and several other perks. This approach is extremely costly since the business owner needs to purchase costly carpet cleaning equipment and supplies. Furthermore, the cleaner will be paid a full salary even though cleaning is done once or twice a day, usually in the morning and during the lunch break. This means the cleaner will be free for the rest of the day despite drawing a full salary from the company. A more cost effective option would be hiring a commercial cleaning company which has professional carpet cleaners. We asked our friends at K & T Chem-Dry about the benefits of having your carpets professionally cleaned.
Benefits of Professional Carpet Cleaning
Carpets usually get dirty fast. After all, customers and employees come into the business premise with all manner of dirt in their shoes. When conducting business, some liquids, foodstuffs and greases may also stain the carpet. At the end of the day, you may be left with a dirty carpet which not only looks unsightly, but also poses a health risk to customers and workers who have allergies. Fortunately, commercial carpet cleaning firms have what it takes to clean your carpet. The following are benefits of hiring professional carpet cleaners:
Professional carpet cleaners are in the business of cleaning carpets. Therefore, they have state of the art cleaning equipment as well as carpet cleaning supplies which may not be available to the average business owner. With these cleaning supplies, tools and equipment, the cleaning company will ensure your carpet is not only free of dirt and stains but also looks as good as new after restoration of fibers.
Professional carpet cleaning firms employ workers who are well trained in every aspect of carpet cleaning. They know how to handle different types of carpets as well as how to remove different types of stains on the carpet. They are, therefore, extremely effective in cleaning and restoring carpets.
Commercial carpet cleaners are usually trained and certified by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) or similar organization, depending on country. Cleaners who have this certification can easily get the job done quickly and safely. They also know which cleaning supplies have been banned and which ones are safe, so will ensure your carpet is both clean and safe. Therefore, business owners should always check whether or not a carpet cleaner is certified before hiring them.
Carpet Restoration and Repairs
The beauty of hiring a professional to clean your carpet is that they know how to restore the carpet, to ensure it looks great, as well as how to repair damaged sections. If a section is damaged beyond repair, they can recommend replacement of that section and perform the actual replacement.
When hiring a carpet cleaner, be sure to check whether they are certified by the relevant organization, licensed by local authorities and insured against all risks they face in their work. Experience, cleaning cost and reputation are all important factors to consider when hiring a carpet cleaner.
