The most common types of rugs include wool, known for softness and durability; cotton, a durable and easy-to-clean material; natural fiber rugs, made of – you guessed it – natural fibers (like sisal), typically stylish and versatile; synthetic rugs, which are durable, affordable and great for indoor/outdoor areas; and silk rugs which are considered the most soft and luxurious, but are less durable.
It means that the carpets in Commercial buildings should be cleaned differently than in your home. So, be careful who you call to do the cleaning of your commercial carpeting or carpet tiles. Traditional steam cleaning or hot water extraction should not be used to clean this type of carpet. The hot water and steam method of cleaning puts too much pressure and water into the carpet and can lead to delamination of your carpet or carpet tiles. If this happens, your carpet could become loose, stretched out, or puckered. Loose carpet, or wrinkles in the carpet can cause a trip hazard in your facility, as well as the need for replacement much sooner than you may have expected. To prevent this, make sure you use a Carpet Cleaner that specializes in cleaning Commercial Carpets.
Steam cleaning is an increasingly popular method of carpet cleaning that uses hot water and a detergent solution. The carpet cleaning machine sprays the solution onto your carpet, then sprays hot water on top to activate it. The machine then sucks up the majority of the water, extracting grime and pollutants from the carpet fibers. Steam cleaning is generally considered a safe way to clean carpets because it doesn’t use chemicals that are unhealthy for people or risky for the carpet fibers. Professional carpet cleaners use machines that are more powerful than home cleaners, so they can suck up more dirt and leave the floors dryer. Because steam cleaning penetrates the surface of the carpet, it removes far more dirt, pet hair, dust mites and other debris than vacuuming does. Steam cleaning is also commonly used for cleaning furniture and mattresses, so steam cleaning companies may offer these services bundled with carpet cleaning services.
