Pro Tips For Maintaining Clean Commercial Carpets

As the owner or manager of a commercial business, you know how important it is to properly and regularly maintain your building. A big part of that includes TLC for your commercial carpets. After all, they take a lot of abuse from daily foot traffic, stains, spills and more. Taking proper care of your carpets will put forth a better impression on clients and customers, while fostering a safer and healthier work environment for your staff.

This is why it’s so important to hire professionals in Michigan for regular commercial carpet cleaning.

If you think you can do it yourself, think again. You have enough to worry about without having to add carpet cleaning to the list. The sheer amount of carpeting in your building, coupled with all the equipment and cleaners you would have to invest in, makes this prospect an impossible one if you want to stay on top of all your other duties.

You can’t reasonably keep up with the overall cleaning, not to mention the spot stains and spills you would have to contend with on the daily, from coffee spills to food stains. And it’s not just carpeting that gets dirty – it’s all your upholstery as well. Think of how many guests sit in your waiting room each day or how many clients you host in your conference room.

In order to extend the life of your commercial carpet, heed the following tips when it comes to making sure your commercial flooring is clean day in and day out.

Stain and Spill Maintenance

  • Don’t let stains sit. Old carpet stains are more difficult to treat than new ones. The longer they are allowed to sit, the more deep down they will set. Wipe up spills immediately
  • Use some elbow grease. Some spills are more stubborn to treat than others. Don’t be afraid to use some elbow grease to get them out. Use products that are designed for your type of carpet and always spot check in an out-of-the-way area first.
  • Don’t oversaturate the carpet with water or cleaners: While this is tempting, it could push the stain further into the carpet fibers.
  • Don’t scrub: This alsomakes the stain penetrate deeper. Instead, gently blot the stain with an absorbent cloth, starting with the outer edge.
  • Don’t use harsh chemicals. Sometime harsh chemicals can make the spot set in, resulting in a permanent stain. Go for a mild, natural cleaning solution like vinegar or baking soda.

Carpet Cleaning Maintenance

  • Hire a professional. It takes time to clean carpets, and to do it right. It’s always best in the interest of time and safety to hire professionals who do this on a daily basis. They have the training, experience, knowledge, top-of-the-line cleaning products and powerful extraction equipment to get the job done right and on time. They also make sure the carpet is properly dried.
  • Hire the right company. Your carpet cleaning requirements may be different throughout the year depending on your busy season, traffic patterns, etc. Select a company that can set you up with a regular cleaning schedule that is customized to your building. They should have a long history of reputable experience, be well known in the community, and have stellar business practices, timely teams, well maintained equipment and transparent pricing. Don’t trust your carpets to just any company. Your carpeting is a big asset, and can be ruined in an instant by cleaners that don’t know what they are doing.
  • Avoid skipping cleanings. You may be tempted to skip a cleaning if your carpets don’t look dirty, but trust us: they are dirty! And you should never skip cleanings in high-traffic areas such as schools, day cares and doctor’s offices. The whole point of hiring a commercial carpet cleaner is to maintain your carpets. Regularity and consistency are key.

Keeping your commercial carpets clean doesn’t have to be a daunting task. With the right carpet cleaners in Detroit behind you, you will be able to get the most life out of your flooring.

Excellent results and my rugs were dirty! Very experienced,, knowledgeable and helpful owners/cleaners!! Could not be happier!
I have used 1st Class for both a commercial building and our home. Both experiences were great! I thought our carpet at home was past the point of no return, but they did an amazing job. Pet stains and heavy traffic areas look so great. They are super responsive and timely. A great local small business! I would highly recommend.
Response from the owner: We appreciate the review
Great company, great owners. They always do a thorough carpet cleaning.
Excellent service. They really know there stuff when it comes to cleaning carpet and couches. Friendly staff. Very reasonable prices. Thank you.
Ginny and Claude came on short notice. They did a great job.
I could not be happier with our cleaning service from 1st Class! From my first call, Ginny worked with me to optimize the timing of our cleaning with other work being done, and all communication from there was clear and thorough. Claude and Ginny are genuinely nice people and were a pleasure to work with during the cleaning. They clearly know their stuff and stand behind their work. Results were my formerly bedraggled 9 year old carpets looking brand new and a company I will definitely use again and recommend to others.
This Company did a fantastic job on our 30+ year old carpet that just won't wear out! While we were moving furniture back afterward, I noticed a strip in a traffic area that didn't look quite right. When I contacted them, they were back out within a few hours and promptly took care of the issue!
Response from the owner: Thanks for the review
Awesome company, my furniture looks amazing. They were clean and professional. Also, on time and went right to work!
Response from the owner: Thanks for the review

Response from the owner: Thanks for using our company and it was a pleasure to meet you and your husband!
1st Class is exceptional. Extremely responsive, courteous, thorough and on time. Definitely recommend! THANK YOU!
Wow 1st class is their name for a reason. I had the vent cleaning, carpet cleaning and upholstery cleaning services done today. They did such a thorough job in 2.5 hours for a 2500 sqft house, very nice owners (husband/wife) team that show up and WORK. Very satisfied.
Hung up the phone and they were at our front door in minutes. Toilet leaking all over wet carpet.

Would recommend this company. On time and courteous. Excellent job on my carpet which was extremely dirty looks great now.
Response from the owner: Thank you Dorothy for your kind words!
They were fabulous! They were early and got some nasty stuff out. Thank you so much.
Response from the owner: Thank you!
We have a carpet that was the best quality at the time, but is 30 years old. It had so many stains, I was sure they were permanent. The owners showed up with state of the art equipment and 'steam' cleaned, not hot water clean, and got almost every stain and mark out of this old carpet. It honestly looks like new. The only stain remaining was because it was actual wood stain and you have to replace the carpet with that much damage. The steam allows you to walk on the carpet in 6 hours instead of the usual 24. We are selling this house and the carpet was the only sore spot, but not anymore. I will recommend this company to family and friends with a clear conscience.
Response from the owner: Thank you Tom for wonderful review!
On time. Easy to contact and schedule appointment. The carpet looks great!
Response from the owner: Wonderful to hear!
Very professional. Did a great job. They are the only carpet cleaning company I use.
Response from the owner: Thank you for the feedback!
Absolutely awesome experience! I needed anti-microbial cleaning for a guest coming with severe allergies. They arrived promptly, were fast and efficient and I’ll recommend them all day long.
Response from the owner: Thank you so much for sharing your experience and we are happy to serve you!
Excellent, thorough duct and carpet cleaning. Will definitely use them again!
Response from the owner: Great to hear!
Did a first-class job on time and very professional. No pricing games just a good honest job at a good fair price.
Response from the owner: Thanks!
Claude was a great guy and too informative. He explained me of every bit of the services that he was doing. I would definitely try him all the time and would recommend him :-)
Response from the owner: This is terrific to hear and thank you for your feedback!
After our crawlspace flooded due to a frozen pipe, we could not have asked for a better experience or better service than what Claude provided. One of the perks of a small town and local business - we called in the later evening hours on a weeknight, expecting to get voicemail and/or be told we would have to wait a couple days, but Claude was there with a pump within 20 minutes! A good 2-3 feet of water was pumped and gone by the next morning allowing us to quickly get our pipe fixed and boiler up and running so we could heat our house. Claude brought a blower over, checked in with us regularly, and finalized his part by spraying to prevent mold. Friendly, knowledgeable, and more than fair in pricing. We highly recommend this local small business!
They are the best .fast and professionalTotally would recommend.
Very knowledgeable and arrived right on time. Happy with cleaning and would highly recommend. Plan to use again.
1st class carpet cleaning lives up to its name! Great work and left us with clean carpet and furniture that we thought needed to be replaced! All at affordable pricing and friendly service.
These gentlemen were very professional! They really know their craft!
Excellent service and quality work and did two of our rugs for free!!
Very professional, attention to detail and customer service oriented. Recommend this company highly.
