Choosing A Commercial Carpet Cleaner

When looking for assistance on floor maintenance, it’s most often times the best choice to look towards a commercial carpet cleaner. This is primarily due to the equipment and experience that a professional can provide, though it may also save further damage that may be done to the flooring due to ill-advised instructions and poor methods. The equipment and experience isn’t to be taken lightly either, as the amount of training that professionals undergo, along with the costly tools that are used to properly maintain the flooring, are usually much greater than an individual tackling the task alone.  

The tools that a commercial carpet cleaner will use to care for the flooring are as important as the method in which those tools are used. It’s important to find a reputable company that has years of experience under its belt, as the steps needed to properly compliment the tools are just as noteworthy. For instance, a professional company will first use industry-grade vacuums to thoroughly remove any physical residue that may lie just beneath the surface. Since the nature of the fibers consists of its ability to cling onto things, it’s important to have vacuums that are powerful enough to get any dirt or other matter out before continuing the process.

The main difference from the products that an individual might use and those that a professional will use is the Seal of Approval that’s affixed to a select amount of products. These products have been independently tested and given a certification to award the effectiveness of the product, while maintaining that the product will also cause no damage to the flooring if used as directed.

The repertoire of a commercial carpet cleaner will always consist of a high-powered, industry-grade machine or series of machines, depending on the severity of the situation. Some of these machines use intense heating technology, with some able to heat the fibers to 200+ degrees in a matter of minutes. This heat is used to help break apart the residue and underlying problematic stains that may be present. A professional company will also do specific spot control and hone in on very deep, dirty areas of the flooring. The storage capacity of industry-grade machines is also vast in comparison with individual rental machines intended for residential use, with some able to cover entire levels of corporate space in one go.

A commercial carpet cleaner is also able to provide environmentally-friendly chemicals, or green, soaps-free products. These products are typically plant-based and leave no residue afterwards, unlike typical soap products that are routinely used in residential grade machines. This is especially noteworthy when hiring a professional, which is to make sure that the drying process is completely finished before adding any furniture back into the area. Doing so too quickly could lead to permanent paint or rust stains accruing on the surface.

Though the tools of a commercial carpet cleaner may be available to purchase as an individual, a savvy consumer will be wise to opt for a professional service that has the years of experience and training to take proper control of these tools. If only to avoid permanent damage to the flooring fibers, always consult with a professional before applying any chemicals to the carpet.
