In winter, professional cleaning services are needed even more than usual. With the drop in temperatures, sanitizing commercial and office spaces is important to control the spread of germs that can result in colds and the flu. Plus, it’s really important to protect your space from snow buildup, salt, chemicals, dirt and debris. Whether you have flooring or carpeting, these elements can wear at your flooring by discolouring, staining and promoting the growth of mold or mildew. Come spring, you’ll have to deal with this aftermath and you’ll either pay in cost, or in reputation! Here are some reasons to hire a professional cleaning service for your winter cleaning needs.
Carpet is by far the most vulnerable out of all flooring materials to the effects of winter. In fact, salt, dirt and moisture gets trapped in carpeting which makes it look old, rugged and simply unappealing. Plus, it’s a breeding ground for germs during the flu season! A regular steam cleaning will remove stain-causing agents and restore your carpeting to give it a fresh, clean look and trust us, it will improve the health of your commercial space too.
Treated salt and dirt is often used in entry ways and slippery outdoor areas. While its rough texture is excellent in creating traction outdoors, it can also strip the protective coats of indoor flooring. This damage makes flooring look horrendous fast. Plus, the salt actually removes the traction of the flooring creating a hazard for any passerby.
Unfortunately, a basic sweep or mop will not remove this residue. It’s here to stay! Entry mats can be helpful but a lot of the time salt finds it’s way off the mat and onto your floor. This is the time to ask for help. A professional cleaning service will use the right combination of cleaning products and methods to safely and effectively remove salt residues to protect your flooring.
Puddles of snow, ice, and leftover chemicals from treated salts can make wooden flooring swell, make laminate flooring curl and misshapen and even cause mold and mildew in the long run with repeated exposure. A frequent deep clean will ensure that are no unwanted long term issues.
