Carpet looks great in your workplace and feels comfortable underfoot, but it comes with a big downside—one accidental spill can leave a nasty, hard-to-remove stain.
“No big deal, this won’t be hard to get out,” you may think after spilling your morning coffee all over the floor.
It seems everyone has their remedy for getting rid of carpet stains, using anything from baking soda and shaving cream to renting a carpet cleaner from a local store and everything in between. While some of these homemade solutions can certainly help get rid of stains (if performed right), it’s better to trust the experts for a truly effective deep cleaning. Here’s why:
Likelihood of Office Stains
Your commercial office is a busy place. If it is anything like ours, the pace and daily foot traffic are heavy. Normal wear and tear is bad enough, causing your carpets to look dirty and dingy. And that high pace, unfortunately, comes with a higher chance of drops and spills.
You may not be able to keep up with the number of stains on your own. Just when you think you’ve gotten rid of one carpet stain, another will appear – almost as if you are playing a game of whack-a-mole. If you’re trying to tackle a carpet that already has several stains, or is marred with heavy foot traffic, then you’ve got a lot of work ahead of you.
Cleaning Stains Is Time Consuming
Finding the time to purge your office carpet of stains during the 9 to 5 grind can be difficult, especially if you have big assignments stacked up and important meetings to attend.
Depending on the severity of the stains, getting rid of them with DIY methods might not be as simple or quick as dabbing them with a white cloth and using Red Out, or other everyday solutions such as white vinegar, dish soap with water, or club soda. Deep stains may take hours and several rounds of treatment to disappear, and it can be hard to carve out time during your work day to focus on this when you have more pressing things to work on.
Removing some stains might even require you to move around furniture or prevent employees from stepping in the affected area(s) for a little while, which can interrupt your office’s productivity. And who wants to be stuck at the office cleaning stains after hours?
You Might Make It Worse
No matter how detailed those Internet DIY instructions are, attempting to clean your carpet on your own could result in a worse stain.
You could make the common mistake of rubbing the stain instead of dabbing, which just pushes your stain deeper into the carpet. Alternatively, you might find a set of less-than-trustworthy instructions online and use a solution that only damages your carpet more.
Unless you’ve received the same training as carpet professionals and know how best to tackle carpet stain removals inside and out, your carpet problem might just get bigger if you try to fix it on your own.
When you hire an established, reputable and certified carpet cleaning company, these trained professionals will know the right process that needs to be used to clean your carpets and remove those pesky stains properly.
They will also provide recommendations to properly maintain your carpets as proper maintenance is a key to keeping your carpets clean, minimizing the impact of stains, and looking their best. These maintenance packages will also help keep your carpets healthy by extracting all the dirt and debris trapped deep within your carpet fibers, which can be cause for health concerns if not properly removed.
