|Carpet Maintenance and Upkeep|| |
Commercial buildings today are filled with carpeted flooring. Some estimates claim as much as 70% of all modern floor surfaces are carpeted. Carpet is often selected over hard flooring for several reasons. Carpeting will muffle sounds, carpet is soft and cushioned to walk on, and carpet has a desirable appearance. Carpet will last for years if well maintained. Regularly scheduled cleaning is important for a healthy environment and to protect and prolong the carpet investment.

|Correct chemicals and cleaning procedures vary based on the type of carpet to be cleaned.|
Carpet can hide soil as well as impact indoor air quality. It is important to understand the type of fiber being cleaned in order to maintain a healthy environment and outstanding appearance. Carpet fibers range from synthetics (the most common) such as nylon, polyester, olefin and rayon to natural or plant fibers such as wool, cotton and silk. Choosing the correct method and chemical is important in preventing damage. Natural fibers require specialized care. Your Maintex representative can provide answers to your chemical questions.
Daily vacuuming is a vital cleaning activity. Most people spend 80% or more of their time indoors. It is crucial that the air we breathe remains as clean as possible. Vacuum selection is a very important component of indoor air quality (IAQ). Vacuums with internally housed vacuum bags, dual motors, powerful airflow and effective filtration are a must for improved indoor air quality. The best vacuums are efficient in removing soil, durable and built to last, powerful yet comfortable to use.
An ongoing carpet spotting system prevents spots from becoming permanent stains. Understanding the nature of the spill and the proper chemical to remove the spot is the first step in the process. Quick action in treating spots is important. Maintex offers a wide range of spotters and helpful tips for effective spot removal.
Cleaning methods vary from bonnet cleaning and dry extraction to dry foam, hot water extraction and rotary shampooing. Choosing a specific cleaning method will depend upon traffic conditions and type of carpet as well as time and cost factors. Maintex is ready to help you select the best method for your situation.
