Every good business person knows that appearance matters. You dress yourself to appear more professional at the office, but what about the office itself? A clean, orderly office not only boosts morale for employees, it also gives the impression that you care about details and are ready to tackle any job that comes your way.

Professional carpet cleaning is a great way to remove the pounds of dirt and allergens that can accumulate in your carpets each year, as well as mold and dust mites that can inhabit uncleaned rugs. If your business has carpets anywhere in the building, you should have them professionally cleaned every 12-18 months.

In order to prepare for a visit from your commercial carpet cleaners, there are a few things you can do:

Vacuum your carpet before your commercial carpet cleaners get there. This will help cleaners get right to work and give you a more thorough, lasting clean.

  • Pin up any blinds or curtains that touch the floor. Any upholstered furniture or trailing tablecloths should also be secured away from the carpet. This will keep them from being damaged by strong cleaning solutions or carpet cleaning equipment.
  • Remove as much furniture from the room being cleaned as possible. Please pick up things around your desk such as wastebaskets, filing boxes, chair mats, knickknacks and breakables.
  • When your carpet cleaners arrive, point out any stains or spots you would like removed, especially if they require extra attention.
  • Clear vehicles from your property’s driveway to give the professional carpet cleaners a place to park their vans or trucks with easy access to an entrance. Avoid blocking in vehicles, in case someone has to leave while the cleaners are still there.
