Making the decision to use carpets on the floor of your business can have a lot of benefits. The texture of carpets is generally much more pleasant to walk on, and makes for an excellent surface for traction. You’ll never have to worry about people slipping and falling on a carpeted floor, which is automatically a big bonus. You also have more aesthetic options when it comes to carpets, with some premium carpets allowing for elaborate colors and designs that can really make your working space stand out. That’s an especially great factor to have in your favor for businesses where your image and professional presentation matter to your results.
But for all the advantages that carpets bring to an enterprise, they can also require a bit more maintenance to keep in good condition compared to hard surfaces like tile or concrete. Carpet, of course, retains liquid much more readily, since it is composed of absorbent fibers. This means that any mishaps with liquids can be much more severe, especially if those mishaps involve dyes, inks, or other liquids.
Green carpet cleaners can address these needs, as well as the larger concern of environmental friendliness.
Carpet, thanks to its fibrous structure is, unfortunately, much better at retaining dirt and liquids than a hard surface. This means that simply running a vacuum through the carpet in an office may remove superficial dirt and dust, but does not necessarily address the moisture and possible microbes that can set into neglected carpet and may pose a health risk to people working in an office. This also makes carpets a bit more vulnerable to mold than other materials.
Traditional means of cleaning carpets often placed efficiency over safety or environmental friendliness. The fast and easy way often prevailed when it came to cleaning carpets, meaning cleaning companies of the past would use a battery of different chemicals and cleaning products—sometimes even toxic—in order to get dirt out and leave carpets smelling clean. These methods, while effective, were not always safe for employees, and often had a negative impact on the environment itself.
Modern methods, such as those Green Living Planet employ, do not compromise on health, safety or environmental impact, because we use green carpet cleaning techniques.
The Right Way To Clean
When you decide you want to use green carpet cleaning techniques in your business, this means several things. The most obvious benefit is one of both minimal environmental impact, and complete safety for your employees. Our choice of modern cleaning products and formulas means that nothing we do will leave any toxic residue that may endanger the health of workers. However, our choice of products is also carefully selected so that in both the manufacturing and deployment phase, sustainable substances and products have been used that minimize any negative environmental impact. It’s not just your office that’s clean, it’s your conscience too.
Added to this is our own methodical cleaning technique, in which no corners are cut, or compromises made. Before even cleaning the carpet, we ensure that the space has been thoroughly vacuumed and edge vacuumed to maximize the amount of loose dirt we neutralize.
Once that step is finished, we pre-treat the area with an encapsulating carpet cleaner that is both powerful, yet safe enough to use on even wool carpeting. This cleaner is EPA approved and completely safe for the environment.
The final step is to use a low-foam carpet extractor that has a built in filter. Even the equipment we use at this stage has environmental considerations in mind, and uses a minimal draw for both electricity and water, ensuring maximum efficiency and low utility bills. We then use a high powered blower to dry the carpet, and get it ready to use and looking its best for your business.
