Refresh Carpets for the Spring
Take Advantage of JanNet’s Spring Deals to Refresh your Facility’s Carpets!
It is the perfect time to schedule carpet maintenance now that the winter season is finally winding down.
Getting stubborn salts and grime build-up that has accumulated over the last few months is crucial for the future health and upkeep of a facility’s carpeting, especially for areas that see the most traffic.
JanNet consults its clients on protecting their flooring investments, such as carpets and rugs, while taking into consideration three important aspects: the attributes of the carpet itself, the planned level of maintenance, and the desired life expectancy. We can tailor an affordable floor maintenance plan to any facility.
Establish the Right Carpet Maintenance Schedule
Proper planning and scheduling prevents multiple issues, such as:
- Overcleaning, which can lead to premature deterioration
- Unhealthy work environments as a result of poor indoor air quality due to embedded allergens, fungal spores, dust mites, and microbes
- Persistent “mystery” odors
- Window cleaning
- Build-up of gritty, abrasive particles that cut carpet fibers over time, dulling the appearance and wearing down the pile
Thorough carpet cleanings should be done at least once a year, if only because of carpeting’s innate ability to hide and retain soil, but often the work being done in between can be just as important in the long term. Establishing regular vacuuming, maintaining mats in entrances especially during the winter, and implementing interim services to keep the carpeting groomed will be significant in preventing, or at least postponing, major restorations or replacements.
Cleanlink.com’s article “Is Carpeting Detrimental to Indoor Air Quality?” recommends that the focus be kept on high traffic areas, such as, “entrances, hallways, walkways between desks, stairways or elevators, eating areas/water coolers.” However, the biggest take away regarding the relationship between indoor air quality and carpeting is that despite appearances, carpets are capable of retaining particles that contribute to unhealthy environments: “The tremendous reservoir capacity of a carpet means that it contains not only large quantities of dirt but food particles, hairs, and fibers as well.” (Source)

Two carpet treatments to consider are bonnet cleaning and hot water extractions:
- Bonnet cleaning is a low moisture interim treatment that improves the surface appearance with a very brief drying time. The process utilizes a low-speed floor machine and chemical solutions to transfer superficial particles and stains to the bonnet, a fabric pad. It’s a great service to utilize in between shampoo and hot water extraction.
- Great for improving the appearance of walkways without down time
- Shampoo & hot water extraction is considered a restorative treatment as it thoroughly cleans the carpet fibers using a brushing system and Spartan detergent. This intensive cleaning method utilizes more moisture and therefore relies on thorough extraction, ventilation, and vacuuming.
