Carpets are expensive. You want to ensure they are clean and well-maintained in your business premises because old and dirty carpets are unsightly and can lose you customers.
Dirty carpets can become a petri dish for harmful bacteria and viruses that can make your staff sick. Staff that are constantly sick is an expense to the business because you will end up paying more money in health insurance premiums, replacement staff and sick leave pay.
Carpets in the office, shop or facility that are not regularly deep clean can result in quicker wear and tear to the carpet fibre. When carpet becomes threadbare, they can become a workplace accident risk by causing trips and falls.
It is also expensive for a business owner to replace the carpets in their shop or office. Maintaining the carpets in good condition can therefore save your business an unnecessary expense.
Different stains need different treatment
Whenever you first notice a stain it’s important to act quickly – try blotting what you can up with paper towels. Although the next instinct might be to give the stain a spray using a generic carpet cleaner, this may not optimize the carpet cleaning process. From wine to mud, different stains should be treated using different methods. If you are working with a tough stain that your DIY carpet cleaning cannot remove, hiring a Toronto or GTA-based cleaning service like ours will help.
By using cleaning services professionals, you’ll ensure that tough stains are treated properly.
It’s important to clean – even when it doesn’t look dirty
Cleaning is important for prolonging the life of your carpet. Regular cleaning will help remove particles that can damage carpet fibers. Also, because your floors are some of the most traversed areas of your home, it is highly susceptible to dirt, stains and less visible particles such as dust, skin, hair and mold.
Regularly vacuuming will help maintain your carpets. However, should your carpet discolour, appear grimy or release dust, you may want to consider hiring cleaning services to deep clean. Using an Ontario cleaning service to help with carpet cleaning is the easiest and fastest way to ensure your carpet’s revival and a healthy home environment.
What to do after a flood
The steps after a flood will depend on the type of water you are dealing with. Contaminated water is a safety risk to your family, and it’s important that any materials flooded by it are discarded. However, if you are dealing with a flood due to sanitary water, your carpets may be restored.
Here are the steps that should be taken after a flood:
Shut off the water source and unplug any electronics.
Remove any furniture. Determine what can be cleaned and what needs to be thrown out.
Begin extraction of the water. This can be done using a wet-dry vacuum and can be enhanced with fans or dehumidifiers.
Disinfect the area by using proper carpet cleaning solutions. It also may be beneficial to apply a mould prevention cleaner in areas susceptible to mould growth.
How to hire a cleaning company for your business
Hiring a janitorial service can be a great way to keep your business clean and looking its best at all times. However, you won’t want to choose just any commercial cleaning service for your business. Instead, there are some important things you’ll want to look for in a janitorial service in Sydney before you decide to hire them for the job.
Are They Insured?
Of course, you may be thinking, “what could possibly go wrong with a cleaning service?” In reality, you may be surprised to find out just how common workplace accidents are, even in the janitorial field. The last thing you want is to end up being held responsible for a mistake your cleaner makes. By choosing a company that’s insured, you can enjoy greater peace of mind in your decision.
Do They Have a Guarantee?
Most reputable cleaning companies these days are confident enough in their work that they can offer a money-back guarantee. This way, if you’re unhappy with any of their services, you can contact them and they’ll make it right or you’ll get your money back. By finding a company that offers such a guarantee, you know that you’re choosing a service that truly cares about its customers’ satisfaction.
Do They Perform the Services You Need?
This one will be unique to your business’ needs. For example, if you run an office, then you may need carpet cleaning, disinfecting of break rooms and bathrooms, and general trash service. On the other hand, if you run a retail store, you may need floor waxing and buffing. All businesses have different needs, so be sure to find a cleaning company in the GTA that offers everything you need to keep your business in its best shape at all times.
Do They Require a Contract?
No reputable cleaning company should require you to enter into a long-term contract in order to receive their services. Instead, you should be able to give them a try with no long-term obligation. From there, you might receive a discount (like with DryTech Commercial Cleaning) if you enter into a contract, but it’s not something you should ever be pressured into.
Do they have references?
Ask the company for referrals (from other businesses) and check these references before you engage the company.
References will tell you whether the company is reliable and trustworthy.
Do they have qualified staff?
Ask the company if they are hiring qualified technicians to clean your office. A reliable commercial cleaner will usually follow Australian cleaning standards which is a guarantee for quality.
Keep these important tips in mind as you shop for a janitorial service and you’ll be sure to choose the one that’s right for your business in no time. From there, you can enjoy a clean, safe work environment for you and your employees.
