SERVPRO of Lewisburg/Selinsgrove Excels at Commercial Carpet Cleaning!

11/21/2019 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Lewisburg/Selinsgrove excels at professional carpet cleaning for our commercial customers. Keeping carpets cleaned and looking like new is no ordinary feat, so here are some tips from the IICRC:

~Place properly sized entry mats on hard surfaces rather than on carpet where they can trap moisture- the bigger, the better. Proper sizing requires room for at least two steps to sufficiently wipe soil from feet, leaving it on the mat. A carpet with a nylon face and vinyl back is best for moisture and oils absorption, as well as trapping the soil particles. Installing a rental mat is suggested since that guarantees frequent maintenance. 

~Vacuum daily. Collecting the soils from the surface quickly makes for easier removal. 

~Deep cleaning should be done on at least a semi-annual basis. Some places with lighter traffic require less maintenance. At a minimum, some attention should be given to primary entryways on a quarterly basis.

~Use plain warm water and light mild detergent to treat spots immediately.

~High-efficiency double-lined poly-fiber collection bags reduce such things like dusting of furniture, heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) filter exchange.

~Make sure the HVAC system is slightly positively pressurized as well, which means that air is going out when doors are opened, rather than being sucked in. Proper air exchange rates can be calibrated according to ASHRAE regulations for the building with a trained HVAC contractor.

~Ensure proper air filtration through the HVAC System. High-efficiency pleated filters, rather than inexpensive fiberglass filters, are recommended.
