Commercial Carpet Cleaning Case Study

After 12 Years and Two Million Patrons, How the NCH Carpet Looks so Good!

In my last post I went through a few of the important elements of a good carpet cleaning maintenance programme. There are of course many other considerations such as the location of the premises, office, etc., the type of carpeting (tiles or broadloom) and the purpose or use of the building. A good commercial carpet cleaning case study is the National Concert Hall.

The National Concert Hall is one of our major clients, for whom we have been cleaning carpets and upholstery for over 12 years now. This year alone 350,000 people attended events at the Concert Hall. I’m not sure that the same number of people have attended every year in the past 12 years but a conservative estimate would be that 2 million people have walked on these carpets in that time.

How is it possible that they still look so good?

There are a number of factors:

  • Excellent quality carpets
  • Scotchgard Protector
  • Frequent Maintenance visits
  • Regular Vacuuming

Good Quality Carpet in the Places that Matter

The better quality the carpet, the better the appearance if maintained properly. One mistake that companies often make is compromising on quality at the outset. It is usually a false economy. The quality does not have to be the same throughout the building. Where there is less traffic, a lesser quality carpet very often is sufficient. So a good way to put your best foot forward in an economical way is to put the best carpet you can afford in the areas of highest use.

Scotchgard Protector

The best time to apply a scotchgard protector is when the carpet is newly installed. Although not bullet proof, the protector works to help prevents spillages from becoming stains and to make daily maintenance easier.

In the example of the Concert Hall, we have reapplied the protector after every clean. This is a great help in maintaining the appearance of the carpet in between cleans.

Frequent Maintenance

Frequent maintenance means that spillages are not left so long that they become impossible to remove. Even with Scotchgard Protector, the carpets need regular attention.

The longer a stain is left, the more likely it is to become permanent. The number of visits required depends on the volume of traffic on the carpet and on other considerations such as whether or not food is being served or consumed in the area.

Regular Vacuuming

Regular vacuuming in between professional cleans helps greatly to maintain the carpet’s appearance. We recommend a beater bar vacuum cleaner which will do an excellent job of lifting soil and dust from the carpet. This will reduce damage to the carpet caused by friction of dust, grit, and general soiling. The Concert Hall’s own cleaning staff do a great job in this regard.
