How to Care for Commercial Carpet Tiles?

by 212 Carpet A Knowledge Based Commercial Flooring Company!

Carpet tiles are a significantly affordable purchase compared to other different types of floor coverings. These are durable, high-quality, often made of recyclable materials, ready to accommodate heavy traffic, and easy to install or remove. Commercial carpet tiles have several benefits. However, you would need to employ special care to maintain the product’s life for an extended period.

Carpet tiles are used as a flooring solution at airports, hospitals, offices, restaurants, schools, and other commercial premises. Proper cleaning and upkeep will keep the product looking fabulous and prolong its life. So, here are the steps you can take to care of your carpet tiles.

REGULAR VACUUMING

If you do not vacuum your carpet tiles regularly, these will trap dust, grit, and debris. Such particles are abrasive in action and can vigorously rub against the fibers causing them to shorten the product’s life. Creating a good vacuum schedule helps reduce associated damage and decreases the need for expensive future maintenance. Start by taking long and steady strokes over the carpet to pick all particles without harming the product. High traffic areas need everyday vacuuming. However, in moderately used areas, vacuuming twice or three times a week also serves the purpose. It will also prevent a buildup that may otherwise be carried into the building through shoes or wind.

BARRIER MAT INSTALLATION

Installing barrier mats at entrances and exits of lobbies, hallway, or reception areas always helps to keep the carpet tiles clean. These mats help trap the dirt or grime from the sole of people’s shoes preventing the matter from coming in contact with the carpet fibers. However, it is again necessary for you to keep the mats squeaky clean, or they lose their capacity to reduce the amount of dirt and moisture, walking the filth into the property leaving your interior floor coverings exposed to damage.  

STAIN REMOVAL

React quickly to spills and stains. Gently and immediately blot any surface liquid. Remove ink with water and a spot remover. Clean coffee marks with a mild detergent followed by a spot remover. Use an ice cube to scrape off chewing gum. If there’s blood, use a biological liquid detergent solution to break down the matter caught in the product’s fibers. A solvent carpet cleaner can also remove felt marker stains.

Work from outside towards the middle of the carpet tile. Make sure to use a sponge or cloth to apply any (water-based) solvents. Moreover, do not let spills turn into a stain. If they do and are left untreated, the stain may attract more dust and debris. You can use some hot water to clean any accumulated buildup and marks. Additionally, you can call deploy commercial carpet cleaning in NYC to mindfully and reliably clean and maintain the product.

SCHEDULED CLEANING

Make sure you aren’t soiling the carpet before calling professionals. Talk to an expert, obtain a suitable cleaning and maintenance plan, and adhere to the treatment plan. The frequency at which your carpet would need cleaning depends on its color, type, traffic volume, and other such factors. Usually, dry powder cleaning is most recommended to maintain the product’s appearance and durability, besides fulfilling the environmental responsibility. Consult a specialist to determine what would work best for your requirements.

We hope these tips help you keep your commercial carpeting looking new and shiny for years to come.
