Industrial Carpet Cleaning Companies

Industrial carpet cleaning companies specialise in cleaning carpets in commercial settings; they are equipped with the machinery needed to deep-clean the most heavily used and largest of carpets, which may not be possible without heavily specialised equipment. While they specialise in larger areas, however, they are commonly also happy to take on smaller jobs (i.e. smaller offices) and may be a viable option to cleaning purchasing your own equipment.

Is it Worth the Money?

Contracting in an industrial carpet cleaning company to clean your carpets can be expensive, and it certainly isn’t the sexiest way to spend your money. There are probably 30 things you would rather do with your businesses liquid assets than hiring a carpet cleaner, and isn’t that what you’re paying your cleaner/s to do anyway? This is a common and highly understandable line of thought, but it is important to keep in mind that standard cleaning equipment simply can’t handle large carpeted areas: you would need to purchase cleaning equipment for several thousand pounds to match the results and efficiency of an industrial carpet cleaner, as well as put your cleaners through extra training.

Add to that the fact that deep cleaning your carpet will add to their overall lifespan, and contracting in professional industrial carpet cleaners to do the job doesn’t seem quite as bad anymore. Having dirt grow deep into your carpets will make them wear out at a considerably higher pace, leading to a much higher carpet turnover – and replacing your carpets isn’t just expensive, it also causes considerable disturbance to your business operations.

Choosing an Industrial Carpet Cleaner

When it comes to choosing an industrial carpet cleaner, there is no shortage of service providers to select from. In order to ensure that you’re getting the best possible value for money, there are a couple of things you should ask each provider prior to making your decision:

  • How much do they charge?
  • How busy is their schedule (i.e. how far in advance do you have to book them)?
  • Do they offer repeat order discounts?
  • What method do they use? (Some methods take longer than others, and some require that you leave the carpet to dry for several hours, even a day. The most efficient common methods, in order, are: Encapsulation, Dry cleaning, Shampoo, Bonnet)
  • Where are they based? (This, in combination with question 2, is more important than it may seem – you want them to be available for emergencies should some accidentally cause a major spill on one of your carpets)

Armed with these questions, a good way of choosing your industrial carpet cleaner is to firstly call of your local service providers and getting them to provide you with the answers you require. Secondly, sit down and compare their answers and narrow down the possible provides based on how you value the questions (i.e. is price more important than immediate availability) then contact the remaining suppliers and use their competitors quotes and offers to negotiate the lowest price possible.
