Clearing Up Costly Carpet Cleaning Myths

As a Madison, WI business owner or manager, you know that your company has invested a great deal of money in carpeting. Therefore, it’s financially and aesthetically beneficial to properly care for it. The best way to do this is to hire a commercial cleaning company in Madison, WI that offers professional carpet cleaning services.

Unfortunately, many misconceptions or myths about carpet cleaning persist. To clear those up, the pros at ServiceMaster Building Maintenance have listed some of the most common carpet cleaning myths below, along with the straight facts:

Wait as long as possible between professional carpet cleaning appointments.
No. Dirt is an abrasive like sandpaper. Every time customers, vendors, employees or patients walk on your carpets, dirt is ground further into its fibers, where it cuts and destroys them. Professional carpet cleaning removes the dirt better than regular vacuuming can, prolonging your carpet’s life.

The only reason to clean carpet is to remove the dirt.
No. Professional carpet cleaning prevents your carpet from becoming matted and crushed by removing the oils that are tracked in from the bottom of people’s shoes. When oil is allowed to build up, it causes carpet fibers to clump together and compress. Professional cleaning also removes pollens, fungus, bacterial, smoke and many other nasty substances that can wind up in carpeting and adversely affect the health of the people in your facility.

Every carpet cleaning company is the same.
No. When it’s time to get your commercial carpets cleaned, seek out a reliable company with extensive experience.
