Carpet Cleaning Tips for the Home and Office


Carpet cleaning can often be quite a laborious task to tackle when cleaning your home or office space. The process itself alone is quite time consuming, combined with the additional time required for drying makes carpet cleaning feel like an arduous chore to complete. Despite this, it is important not to ignore regularly cleaning your floor space. Unclean carpets don’t just look bad but can also be a risk to your health as they quite often harbour germs, parasites and dust that can potentially make those in the space unwell. Cleaning your carpets doesn’t have to feel like a vexatious task, in fact it can be a quicker and simpler job than you’d initially thought. Here are some tips for keeping your carpet healthy and in it’s cleanest possible condition.



Accidental spills are common and almost guaranteed to occur when kids or pets are around the area. To avoid any spillages turning into a stain, it is important to deal with it quickly and not ignore it.

  • Firstly, use an absorbent to soak up the excess liquid hanging on the surface of the carpet and be sure not to rub or scrub as this will only push the fluid deeper into the pile of the carpet.
  • Before you begin cleaning, it is often helpful to run a vacuum around the spill to pick up any dust and debris. This will prevent your carpet cleaner from getting clogged up and prepare the floor for a deeper, more effective clean.
  • If the carpet is heavily soiled, pre-treating it with a specific solution is often a good idea. This will give your carpet a deeper clean and a good start on breaking down the stains before you introduce a generic cleaner to fully cleans the affected area.

Before you complete all of this, it is important to double check you are using the appropriate solutions for you type of carpet, as different solutions will have different effects on various types of flooring.


The Cleaning Process

Once you have assured the right carpet cleaner for your floor, move the cleaner solution up and down the room in parallel lines, starting furthest away from the door and working your way back to the door. It can help to slightly overlap each line to ensure no space is missed but be careful that this doesn’t over soak certain areas.

After cleaning, follow instructions provided on your solution. This might mean giving your floor a slight rinse afterwards to remove any soapy residue remaining on the surface that can attract more dirt and dust if ignored. Afterwards leave the floor to dry, it might help to ventilate the room by opening windows and doors for a quicker natural dry.

Benefits of Contract Cleaning


It is often perceived by large companies and corporate businesses that not employing a contract commercial cleaner will save them money in the long term. However this is quite untrue, as in many ways, not hiring a contract cleaner can be associated with cutting corners in the approach to a professional outlook on your business.

Using contract cleaners can have several imperative benefits for your company, as they help you to project a more professional image to clients via a clean, ordered and appropriate office space. In todays competitive business world, first impressions with clients are crucial and often more important than we think.

A professional contract cleaning company will ensure that you have the peace of mind of knowing your office will be cleaned regularly and punctually every week.

A cleaner office is a healthier office. Regular cleaning is highly important in order to control allergens and dust mites that thrive in dusty and dirty environments. When staff are working in an enclosed environment with the occasional sneezing, coughing and wheezing, it is important to acknowledge that an in depth, professional clean of the entire environment is required to ensure the safety of all staff members.


Save time and money.

It is often found that a contract cleaning service can be much more cost effective way of keeping a clean office, this is often because of the fact that they can purchase cleaning supplies through wholesale to keep costs at a minimum.

This will leave your company more time to focus on the growth of the business whilst enjoying professional results without the worry.
