Daily Janitorial Is Like Brushing Your Teeth — Sometimes You Need a Deeper Clean
Many people brush and floss twice a day and call it a solid oral healthcare routine. But did you know that medical guidelines also recommend visiting the dentist at least once or twice a year?
Day-to-day maintenance is important, but it doesn’t keep tartar buildup entirely at bay, stop bad bacteria from invading periodontal pockets, or put an end to gum recession. The only way to be completely sure your mouth is as healthy as possible? Seek periodic advice and treatment from a professional. Consistent maintenance punctuated by in-depth care isn’t only important for your teeth — it’s also a great principle for commercial floor and carpet upkeep.
Unfortunately, far too many businesses assume daily sanitization and janitorial sweeps will keep carpets pleasant and inviting for the long haul. But spot cleaning and vacuuming can only do so much. Without a little TLC from deep carpet cleaning technicians, floors eventually wind up on the same level as the “before” pictures in the dentist’s office.
Deep Carpet Cleaning: More Than a Surface Sweep
This isn’t to suggest that regular daily floor sanitizing isn’t helpful or important. Vacuuming rids carpets of dirt, hair, and tracked-in debris that might otherwise be ground toward the carpet padding. Still, vacuums can’t suck up every tiny particle wedged below the pile. Those particles remain trapped and begin to spread trouble if left undetected.
Dirt and soil that’s been embedded deep in flooring fibers can break down the integrity of your carpet over time, leading to costly intervention measures such as replacement. To prevent costly floor replacements and to help keep your employees healthy, its important to extricate that concealed carpet debris.
No doubt you’ve heard of carpet cleaning that uses steam or water as its source, but that method has its downsides. Hot-water extraction methods rely on moisture to dislodge filth by soaking it and pulling it upward. While this can have some effect, it leaves plenty of grime behind. Additionally, carpets remain damp after being saturated. If they aren’t dried effectively, mold can creep into the mix and make the situation worse.
At milliCare, our dry polymer-based carpet cleaning uses 99.5% less water than competing methods. Activated by just a bit of moisture, the polymers bind tight with grit, allergens, and dust so that we can vacuum them away.
The results? A clean that goes well below the surface and a carpet that helps create a pleasant, inviting atmosphere for customers and employees alike.
