Your businesses image is important – and so is the health of your staff.
Regular carpet cleaning can keep your floors looking good and reduce the buildup of dirt and pollen, which can wreak havoc with those in your building.
The problem that many commercial business owners face is finding a carpet cleaning company that will work hard to deliver a high-quality cleaning job. There’s also the matter of trusting those entering your building.
These tips and ideas can help you find the right commercial carpet cleaning company for your commercial building.
Here’s how to find a commercial carpet cleaning company you can trust.
1.Go for longevity
One major thing you’ll want to look for when hiring a company you can trust is how long they have been in business.
Many companies fail in the first few years because they’re not delivering services correctly.
Do your homework and find a company with at least 10 years in the commercial carpet cleaning business. Make sure this time was spent in your local area.
2. Reputation matters
Longevity and reputation often go hand-in-hand. If a company has lasted the test of time, it’s likely they’ll have a good reputation.
No one wants to recommend or hire a company that does a bad job.
Ask friends, family, and co-workers if they have had experience with commercial cleaning companies, then check online review sites to see what other customers have to say.
3. Various cleaning options
If a carpet cleaning company only offers one method of cleaning for all types of materials, it’s a good bet they don’t know what they’re doing.
Each type of material needs a specialized treatment. For example, you can't treat wool the same way you might treat nylon.
Ask the company how they determine the right methods to clean your carpets and the different cleaning techniques they use.
4. Flexible business hours
It’s likely you don't want carpet cleaners scooting around your workspace during business hours.
Check with the commercial carpet cleaning company to see what their hours are and if they offer flexibility when it comes to commercial cleaning.
5. Extraction Cleaning
Many carpet and rug manufacturers will suggest the extraction cleaning method.
In fact, if you use any other method and damage is done to your carpets you may be voiding the warranty. Look for a commercial carpet cleaning company that offers the extraction cleaning method and be sure that your warranties and carpeting are protected.
6. Fully certified
Be sure the commercial carpet cleaning company you hire holds special certifications and be sure that these certifications relate to the specific carpet cleaning job taking place.
Credentials from the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) are especially valuable. It’s worth searching out companies that have been certified for commercial carpet cleaning from this organization.
