THE ADVANTAGES OF CARPETS FOR OFFICES
Customers often assume that one of the hardest things to keep clean in the office are carpets but that is far from the truth if you hire a professional carpet cleaner and set up a yearly maintenance program. Even so offices will frequently pick tile over carpet and never think of the benefits that carpets offer to an office.
Many people are surprised when they learn that new carpet installations are the lowest VOC (volatile organic compound) floor choices available and that what little there is of these compounds will dissipate within 48 hours. Office owners also reason that carpets should not be used in offices because of employees’ allergies but in fact their fibres act as traps for pollen, dust and other airborne particles. Instead of having particles floating around in the air every time there is movement in the office, studies have shown that when these particles are trapped in the carpets employees with allergies and asthma have a reduction of symptoms. Of course CARPET CARE SYSTEMS would recommend a nightly clean-up of spills and stains and a vacuuming with a commercial grade vacuum.
Offices can be noisy places but carpets help absorb sound from the noise of foot traffic, computers and phones and they will also muffle the conversations of employees. By adding an extra thick underlay even more sound is absorbed. Carpets can act as a sound barrier from room to room and between floors. Some offices will even hang designer rugs on walls or carpet the walls to provide another layer of sound absorption.
Carpets will help reduce falls and slips as compared to walking on smooth floor tiles and carpets will lessen the impact if one does fall. Carpeting underfoot becomes its own shock absorber.
Carpeting provides some R-value which is helpful in our colder seasons. For many people, the appealing factor in buying carpeting is its beauty. It can, by itself, make a statement in your office by the colour or pattern you chose. There are thousands of colours, patterns and textures of carpets that you can pick from and then enjoy its many benefits.
So whether you have broadloom, carpet tiles, or area rugs, we at CAREPET CARE SYSTEMS, experienced and trustworthy carpet cleaners, in business for 18 years, know that purchasing a carpet is a costly investment so we will be only too happy to care for your carpets by setting up a cost effective maintenance program to suit your needs.

Keeping your office as free from allergens as possible – Carpet Cleaning Services
Those in the know have already performed an early spring cleaning of their offices, getting rid of salt stains and the grime tracked in on their carpets from our harsh winter weather. But now we need to talk in depth about allergy sufferers, not only those facing early spring allergies but those reacting to year round allergens.
Pollen is a trigger for spring allergies, causing such symptoms as runny noses and itchy, watery red eyes and in turn that can make it difficult for those allergic office staff to concentrate. As we walk into our offices pollen is tracked in on our shoes and shed off of our clothes and where does it end up but adhering to everything in the office as pollen is a sticky substance. To make life easier for your staff Carpet Care Systems advises your office to set up a daily carpet cleaning routine and a programmed steam cleaning.
Not only is pollen a culprit in making life difficult for those suffering from allergies but general organic spills from beverages and food can in themselves create problems. Moisture left unattended can cause mould and mildew to grow. Mould and mildew pose serious health risks, they will exacerbate asthma symptoms. Asthma is a life threatening disease.
A person can shed enough skin in a day to feed a million dust mites. Some people are allergic to the fecal matter that is left behind by dust mites, causing such allergic symptoms as wheezing, coughing and stuffy, runny noses. A deep vacuuming of all carpets, rugs and soft materials, daily, is essential to remove fecal matter. A steam cleaning of your carpets is what is needed to actually kill off the dust mites. Remember, we spend many hours in the office, dust mites do not just live in your home. Allergic reactions to the mites can trigger serious asthma attacks.
Pollen, spills and dust mites, contributing factors to allergic reactions, are difficult to keep on top of unless a daily vacuuming of your carpets and soft materials is performed and a steam cleaning regime is set up to help keep your office allergen free.

The winter time is here. Harsh winter weather can do a number on your indoor carpets. Snow, ice, water, dirt, salt, and various other things are finding ways into your carpet every day. Salt is maybe the most damaging element that winter presents to carpets. The entrances of many of our client’s homes are the first to fall victim to salt and it’s mess. The first sign is the carpet’s colour becoming clouded due to the salt residue.
In addition to altering the appearance of the carpet, salt can actually permanently damage the materials in your rug. The residue from salt can slowly break down the fine fibres in your carpet and can strip the carpet of its chemical compounds.
It’s not just carpets that fall victim to salt. Your hard floor surfaces can also be affected. The salt tracked into your home can strip the urethane coating off your tile and wood flooring. Once this coating is compromised your floor is more likely to suffer damage from moisture, dirt and abrasion.
The water tracked into your home can also cause damage to your carpets. When left for extended periods of time, moist carpets can develop mold or a musty smell. It’s important to clean messes as quickly as possible and again to focus your cleaning attention firstly on entrances.
The best way to combat damages from salt and moisture is to have mats outside entrances. Also, be mindful of how much salt you are using outdoors. Many people can actually get away with using less salt on their walkways. There are also less abrasive melting agents on the market that can actually eliminate salt completely. Regularly cleaning your floors will dramatically decrease the chances of your home suffering from winter-related damages. Hiring professional carpet cleaners will protect the investment you’ve made on flooring your home by ensuring your carpets remain pristine throughout the year.
