Every commercial carpet represents a significant investment in your company’s brand and image, and proper carpet maintenance is essential to protect and enhance that investment. To protect this investment and ensure the longevity and aesthetics of your carpets, regular maintenance is crucial. At SOLID Surface Care, we understand the value of your carpets and offer tailored maintenance plans to keep them in pristine condition. In this blog, we’ll explore the importance of regular carpet maintenance and why it’s necessary to safeguard your investment.
Your Investment, Our Approach
At SOLID Surface Care, we approach carpet maintenance with a deep understanding of the unique variables associated with your carpeted surfaces. We take into account factors such as carpet age, usage patterns, and wear and tear to create a customized Consolidated Care Plan that suits your facility and budget.
Our methods are designed to provide the best care for your carpets while adhering to industry standards and manufacturer recommendations. Here are some of the methods we use:
1. Low Moisture: Ideal for interim cleaning between deeper wet or dry cleaning extractions, our low moisture method is effective and efficient.
2. Wet Extraction: This method is perfect for annual deep cleaning or restorative maintenance. It strikes a balance between effectiveness and sustainability, using safe ingredients with low environmental impact while utilizing a moderate amount of water.
3. Dry Extraction: Considered the best long-term solution for new carpets in the industry, dry extraction minimizes your environmental footprint while reducing workplace VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds). SOLID is an IICRC-certified firm, and all our carpet care systems are CRI-certified, ensuring sustainable methods that protect Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) and reduce the impact on landfills.

Creating Your Carpet Maintenance Plan
Now that you understand the importance of regular carpet maintenance, let’s outline a basic guide to help you create a tailored plan for your facility:
1. Assess Your Needs: Begin by evaluating your carpeted areas. Identify high-traffic zones, areas prone to spills, and the overall condition of your carpets. This assessment will help determine the frequency and intensity of cleaning required.
2. Choose the Right Cleaning Methods: Based on your carpet material and condition, select the appropriate cleaning methods. This may involve regular cleaning, spot treatments, or specialized techniques. Consult with professional cleaners to ensure the right approach for your carpets.
3. Schedule Regular Cleanings: Develop a cleaning schedule that aligns with your facility’s specific requirements. High-traffic areas may necessitate more frequent cleaning, while less-used spaces can be cleaned less often.
4. Budget Wisely: Allocate a budget for carpet maintenance. Remember that preventive maintenance is cost-effective in the long run, saving you from costly replacements and repairs.
5. Partner with Professionals: Consider partnering with professional cleaning services like SOLID Surface Care. Our experienced technicians and project managers are equipped with the knowledge and equipment to ensure thorough and effective carpet maintenance.
