Keeping up with your Carpets!
Research extending back several decades shows that properly maintained carpets can be safe and will have many desirable attributes, not the least of which are comforts and well-being. Any facility manager or office manager looking to find and hire a professional, commercial cleaning company will want to be sure that whatever company you hire they have the knowledge and expertise to understand your flooring and carpet needs. Carpet is not static but is a dynamic environmental system that conforms to the law of thermodynamics. If you have a new indoor carpet you realize the benefit it brings but as time passes carpet will seek a state of disorder and become a matter absorber that transfers and traps unwanted matter. In order to be maintained to optimum status, carpets must be cleaned regularly.
“Cleaning” is the process used to achieve a clean condition and effective cleaning is the process of extracting and removing unwanted matter to the greatest or optimum extent. It will reduce exposure to unwanted matter and eliminate any adverse effects on humans, environmental and other valuable materials.
It is obvious that unwanted matter gets deposited in carpet either by foot traffic or by air deposition. Large dense substances are normally tracked in through ground floor entrances and because carpet has a large irregular surface area it holds on to this substance. Because of this temporary containment carpet can help control indoor pollutants. This is known as the trap effect and is only temporary because sooner or later the unwanted matter transfers somewhere else.
Six different field experiments over the last 25 years indicate that a properly designed carpet cleaning schedule with an emphasis on extraction can keep unwanted matter loading in carpet at levels that will not adversely affect other parts of the environment, such as indoor air. The studies indicate 3 important components for carpet care:
- The use of soil barriers such as walk off mats at the building entrances
- Frequently scheduled vacuuming with a certified and tested vacuum
- Regularly scheduled extraction cleaning
Extracting pollutants from carpets enhances the quality of the indoor environment by reducing exposers and protecting health. Cleaning carpets is most beneficial to health when we extract all of the following:
- Fine particles that are not controlled through normal housekeeping
- Biological allergens of all types
- Particles to which other pollutants are bound such as solids and gas-phase organic compounds
- Heavy metals such as lead, cadmium, and arsenic found in outside soil dusts
- Pesticides and herbicides used in and around the microenvironment
- Combustion byproducts from cooking, wood smoke, candles and tobacco
Make sure your professional commercial cleaning company has the expertise to keep your commercial offices, medical facilities and schools carpeting at optimum condition through a well maintained plan to protect your carpet and extend its life over the years.
