Is Commercial Carpet Replacement in Your Future?
The commercial carpeting in your office is starting to look really bad. Dark looking stains seem to be popping-up everywhere, even though you just had your carpets cleaned. What is going on? You’re proud of your business, and want to present a clean and healthy image. Your soiled carpet is starting to give your business a dingy image to your employees and your clients.
And now even cleaning doesn’t seem to help anymore. Are you going to have to face the fact that an expensive commercial carpet replacement job is in your future? It can be frustrating to have your commercial carpets cleaned but not get the result you want. And more frequent cleaning does not seem to help anymore either.
At Zerorez Commercial Carpet Cleaning, we see these kind of issues on a daily basis. We can sympathize. When we moved into our new space on Sky Park Circle in Irvine the carpet in the office was not ready for prime-time. It was stained and had a lot of dark looking pathways in the high-traffic areas. The landlord offered to replace the carpet, however we welcomed the challenge and wanted to see what could be done to a soiled, neglected and dingy carpet.
It took a deep restorative cleaning effort, however the carpet came back to life. Now, three years later, the carpet is still as good as new. The secret is a proper combination of thorough vacuuming, pile lifting and soap-free cleaning.
Many carpet cleaners and janitorial services have not kept up with new techniques and technologies. They still use inexpensive, soil attracting soaps and detergents, which not only leave a sticky residue that doesn’t release dirt, but also quickly attract new soiling.
Adding insult to injury is the fact that these soaps and detergent almost never get removed or rinsed. Cleaning after cleaning these residues build-up in your carpet, until the soil and detergent load is so high that subsequent cleaning doesn’t have the desired effect anymore. Carpets re-soil very quickly and spots often come back.
In addition, the heavy traffic experienced in a business setting means the carpet pile is mashed down and the stickiness keeps the pile compressed. Each time soap is added, the problem gets worse and the soap residue multiplies. Unfortunately, regular cleaning just cannot penetrate the residue-laden fibers to clean them.
At this point the issue of carpet replacement enters the conversation, when in reality a restorative commercial carpet cleaning can solve the problem at hand. As the name implies, restorative carpet cleaning is designed to dig out the heavy build-up of soil, soap and detergent and give the carpet life again. This saves the commercial carpet owner thousands of dollars in replacement cost. It also keeps thousands of pounds of carpet out of the local landfill.
Your next questions probably are; what is restorative commercial carpet cleaning? And what does commercial restorative carpet cleaning cost? Well I’m glad you asked. Restorative carpet cleaning tackles the issue of heavy soil and detergent build-up with a two-step solution. The first step is to use a pile lifter. It is a special brushing tool designed to lift and separate the pile and to fluff up the fibers. This makes the cleaning more effective and reaches clear down to the backing.
The next is to clean with our patented alkaline water, which doesn’t use soap or detergent. The objective is to purge the fibers of the multiple applications of soap and detergent left behind from previous cleanings. Pile lifting and then removing old soap, detergent and soil revitalizes the fibers. It also renews the color dulled by soapy residues. Another benefit is that the carpet stays clean longer because all the soil attracting, sticky residue has been removed.
The result is a more vibrant, cleaner, brighter carpet. If your carpet is truly worn out, pile lifting and purging old soap and residue won’t restore lost carpet fibers. However, you may still get another two or three years of usage with our restoration process.
As far as cost is concerned, you typically will be looking at a rate in the range of 25 to 35 cents per square foot. Obviously the size of the job, the soiling conditions and a host of other factors play a part in a final pricing of a restorative commercial carpet cleaning.
