7 Tell-Tale Signs Your Office Carpet Needs Professional Cleaning

by | Jun 21, 2021 | Carpet Cleaning

Are your carpets overdue for a professional clean? Sometimes it’s difficult to gauge how often you should be getting someone in to clean your office’s carpets. Particularly if you are operating a busy office space, it’s easy to accidentally neglect the carpets altogether.

Regardless of the state of an office space’s carpet, a thorough clean from trained professionals can always make a drastic transformation to the overall aesthetic of the office and the hygiene of the workspace.

So without further ado, here are seven tell-tale signs your office carpet needs professional cleaning.

1. There are “traffic tracks” across your carpet

If your carpet is visibly riddled with track marks, this means the fibres are swamped with dirt, grime, dust, oil and other contaminants that leave a lasting visual effect when walked over. Once your carpets contain enough contaminants to show traffic tracks, a deep clean is definitely required.

2. Your carpet has patches of discolouration

Any carpet that endures a high amount of foot traffic inevitably sustains a lot of wear and tear, but this isn’t always visible on the surface. What will reveal this deterioration is any discoloured patches you notice anywhere on the carpet. If you spot any patches that are darker or a different colour to the rest of the carpet, it’s time for a deep clean.

3. Stains and spills

This should be a fairly obvious one. While office environments aren’t generally exposed to the kinds of spills and mishaps that a restaurant or bar might experience on any given night, we all drop the occasional coffee cup or cause an inky mess with a broken pen.

The longer your office is hosting employees, the more stains your carpet is going to accumulate. At a certain point, it’s time for a deep clean to hit the reset button!

4. Your carpet has sustained water damage

Ironically, water can cause a lot more damage to your carpets than other liquids. This is because when left unaddressed, the water leads to mold and must, at which point your office carpet can actually become a health hazard. Pipe leaks and/or highly humid environments are common factors for water damaged carpets, and a deep clean can ensure your carpet is returned to its former dry and hygienic glory!

5. Unpleasant odours are a common sign your office carpet needs professional cleaning

Carpet fibres tend to capture things like pollen, pet hair, dust mites and other small particles that fall from our clothes or float in through open windows. These particles can then trigger people’s allergies, which is never fun when you’re trying to work. By getting your carpets professionally cleaned, you can ensure your employees’ allergies don’t flare up at the office. Check out this article which takes a deeper dive into the topic of the health impacts of uncleaned carpets.

6. You or others are experiencing allergies or hay fever in the office

This should be a fairly obvious one. While office environments aren’t generally exposed to the kinds of spills and mishaps that a restaurant or bar might experience on any given night, we all drop the occasional coffee cup or cause an inky mess with a broken pen.

The longer your office is hosting employees, the more stains your carpet is going to accumulate. At a certain point, it’s time for a deep clean to hit the reset button!

7. Your office carpets have never been cleaned since your business moved in

If your company has never arranged a professional deep clean since taking over the space, who is to say how long ago the former tenants delayed their carpet cleans (if they ever did so at all)? There’s just something all the more unsettling about “someone else’s dirt.” Clean office carpets reflect an organised business, and send a clear message about the professionalism of your company. Likewise, shabby or dirty carpets can impact your client’s impression of your business and disgruntle your staff over time. This post cites the findings of studies into the link between a clean environment and a person’s mental wellbeing.
