The cleaning of carpets is an important aspect of building health and good facility management.
Because carpets hide a multitude of dirt and because this isn’t so obvious expenditure is usually deferred until absolutely necessary. When carpet cleaning has been delayed longer than recommended it means the dirt from footwear becomes airborne where there are groups of people working in an office.
Infrequent carpet cleaning leads to deterioration of the carpet which then needs to be replaced a lot earlier than necessary.
