Do you have a commercial property that utilizes carpet flooring? If so, there is a good chance you need some type of carpet maintenance plan. There are many types of commercial buildings, schools, restaurants, libraries, office buildings and department stores. However, in this article, we will focus on schools. Although schools have primarily hard flooring. There are some areas that typically have carpet flooring. Libraries for example, normally always have carpet flooring. Every school is designed differently depending on the age and amount of the students. Regardless of this fact, a commercial carpet cleaning maintenance program for schools in Birmingham, AL should be developed. So what might a typical carpet cleaning maintenance program for a school look like?
Carpet Maintenance Schedule
Heavy Traffic Areas
Heavy traffic areas in a school might include conference rooms, gymnasiums, faculty break rooms and administrative areas. These areas should be vacuumed every other day with an approved CRI vacuum cleaner. The bag should be changed as soon as it is half full. Any dry spills should be vacuumed immediately. Any liquid spills should be first blotted dry and then cleaned by a solution comprised of dish detergent and warm water.
Severe Traffic Areas
Severe traffic areas in a school can be comprised of corridors, principal traffic routes, student break rooms and classrooms. Door mats should be utilized to eliminate any excess dirt from getting inside the room. The severe traffic areas should be vacuumed daily after each school session. This is essential to maintaining the integrity of the carpet.
One thing that is common to all carpet flooring regardless of the level of traffic is the need for a deep cleaning via the hot water extraction method. This is recommended at a minimum of 2-3 times a year. A deep cleaning refreshes the carpet and extracts the dirt from the bottom of the fibers creating a revitalized floor ready for school traffic.
