Office Carpet Cleaning – Common Carpet Stainssalvisbackoffice
Many of us think of the office as our second home. We spend most of our hours awake there. But very few of us perform office carpet cleaning tasks. If you clean your house, shouldn’t you want to clean your office?
Making a mess inside the workplace can’t always be avoided. You and your coworkers can mop any spills on the floor or pick up fallen cookie crumbs. But sometimes cleaning can be far more difficult, especially when it comes to stains on office carpets.
Let’s face it. Stains aren’t pleasant to look at. But the moment something spills over the carpet that’s likely to cause a major stain, don’t feel like it’s the worst thing ever. You can take quick action to at least minimise the affected area, and reduce the degree to which the stain gets settled.
Office Carpet Cleaning Melbourne: What are common carpet stains and what can you do about them?
It helps to understand more about common carpet stains and the basic removal techniques for each one. These solutions don’t accomplish 100% of the job, but that’s not the point. Think of them as like administering first aid treatment to your office carpet. Then afterwards, Salvis will handle the rest.
Let’s break down some of the most common office carpet stains below.
1. Coffee Stains
Coffee actually complements a lot of things in our lives. It gives us that mental boost each morning as we’re getting ready for work. It’s the perfect drink to have while chilling out with officemates during breaks. But alas, coffee doesn’t belong in your carpet whatsoever.
To clean out a coffee stain, try blotting the affected spot with a dry, clean cloth. Press the cloth with the palm of your hand without rubbing over the area. Then leave the cloth in place so it can absorb as much of the liquid as possible. Next, mix a tiny amount of dishwashing liquid in a cup of lukewarm water, and use this to blot the stain from the edge inward.
2. Food Grease Stains
It’s true that most of us have spilled parts of our lunch (even food sauces) on the office carpet before. Not that you should be ashamed – sometimes it’s easier to eat on your desk when you’ve got a packed schedule. Nevertheless, there are ways for you to deal with these pesky food stains.
Use a spoon to gently pick up traces of food without rubbing on the carpet. Then get a clean white cloth and dampen it with an equal mix of vinegar and lukewarm water. Next, use the palm of your hand to blot the stain dry. Follow up by repeating this blotting action but make sure to use another clean cloth.
3. Ink Stains
Let’s not forget about the ink from our pens. If you’re one of those who’s had a drop or leak of ink in your shirt pocket, you’d know that it can turn into a major smear that’s nearly impossible to remove.
To prevent the worst case scenario with an ink stain on your office carpet, first get a dry cloth and blot the stain. Make sure not to rub because that would only spread the ink further. Next,
dampen a new dry cloth into a solution of water and dishwashing liquid. Use this cloth to blot the area from the outside in. Finish up by blot drying with another dry cloth.
Commercial Office Carpet Cleaning Melbourne: Why should you hire a steam clean service?
Again, those steps above serve as temporary measures. They’re like brushing your teeth with a tiny amount of toothpaste. Most carpets of more delicate types require a thorough and proper cleaning.
Have you considered getting your office carpet steam cleaned? This procedure is also known as ‘hot water extraction’ or HWE. In fact, many carpet manufacturers recommend it over other types of carpet cleaning (also, the big manufacturers even state that other cleaning methods may void your carpet’s warranty).
What makes professional steam cleaning so effective? Heat. A steam clean machine typically uses water with temperatures above 100 degrees Celsius. Top-tier machines allow water to reach temperatures of up to 150 degrees Celsius. This actually means 5X as much cleaning power as even the best possible dry powder cleaning or hot water extraction procedure. Moreover, the high-temperature water is capable of sanitising the affected carpet fibers. This helps your office carpet last much longer.
The process begins with the carpet being pre-treated with a solution that helps break down soil deposits. Next, both the soil and solution are rinsed from the carpet thoroughly using a pressurised, hot water rinse. While this occurs, a powerful wet vacuum works in taking out the steam, soil and cleaning solution. The dirty water collected is then transferred into a waste tank.
All in all, when steam cleaning is correctly executed, there are really no weaknesses or disadvantages that come with it. We at Salvis know this. We pride ourselves in being able to provide this service, and all our commercial office cleaning services are of the highest standard. So contact us now at 0421 325 855
