No matter the size of your office or workplace, flooring is a big investment, and it’s important to care for it diligently. Proper methods of flooring care vary based on type, placement, traffic level, pre-treatment, durability and more. Here are a few tips on extending the life of carpeting through regular cleaning and proactive maintenance.
How to Extend the Life of Carpeting
When people walk into a building, everything they stepped on outside – dirt, salt, sand, and more – comes inside on their shoes. If these materials are left on carpet, they sink down into carpet fibers, making them more difficult to remove and creating long-term damage to the carpeting. It’s important to vacuum regularly – every day, if possible – to remove dirt and keep carpet in good shape.
Use High-Quality Mats
Place mats at entrances and in high-traffic areas to absorb dirt and mud, trap soils, and reduce the risk of staining.

Conduct Low-Moisture Cleaning
It seems logical to clean carpets with water. But excessive moisture can lead to mold and mildew, significantly shortening the lifespan of carpeting. Look for low-moisture carpet cleaning services.
Perform Regular Deep Cleans
Although daily vacuuming will help keep carpets clean, it’s a good idea to perform a deep clean once or twice per year. This is a job best left to the professionals – like the experienced steam carpet cleaning teams at ROC Cleaning!
