Commercial Carpet Cleaning During Winter

Mar 5, 2019

If you manage a commercial space you understand how difficult it can be to keep it clean in the winter and early spring. Clients and customers drag in salt, mud, and snow on their boots which ends up on carpets and flooring creating a big mess. Using a commercial cleaning service can end up saving you time and money in the long run. Let’s look at the benefits of commercial cleaning in light of the specific challenges winter poses.

An office carpet

Salt and Deicers

Salt and other chemical deicers can wreak havoc on your building’s floors, especially carpets. Not only do these solutions stain your carpets and make them look dirty they can also damage them and cause them to not last as long. In the long run using a good carpet cleaning service will not only keep your carpets looking better for your customers, but also extend their life.


Another major issue in the winter, and especially in early spring is mud. When snow and ice melt the ground beneath it becomes a muddy mess, and that mess is carried into your building on people’s shoes. Like ice, mud can have a lasting effect on the carpeted areas of your building, especially around the entrances.

One way to prevent major staining from mud is to install rugs around the entrances both inside and outside. These rugs can be used to collect ice, mud, and water before customers get onto your permanent carpet. These rugs should be swapped out and cleaned frequently by a professional company that can ensure they are cleaned properly so they continue to do their job.


The snow and ice that is tracked into your building can cause a problem for both carpet flooring and tile and wood flooring. On tile and wood excess moisture can cause a safety hazard and lead to falls and injuries. On carpet, excess moisture can stain as well as cause bacteria and mold growth over time. Bacteria and mold both thrive in damp environments and carpets are no exception. By using a commercial cleaning company you can rest easy knowing that carpets are being cleaned to a standard that will prevent this growth in your carpet.

Winter weather can damage indoor carpeting and in commercial settings the sheer amount of foot traffic can accelerate the rate of that damage. By using a commercial cleaning company you can save yourself time and money in the long run by extending the life of your carpets and by keeping your building in tip top shape. If you own or manage a commercial space and are in need of a commercial cleaning company to do an exceptional job, give us at Kent Clean a call today. We’d love to work closely with you to come up with a cleaning plan that meets your specific needs.

"WOW, WOW, WOW. I don't know what else to say. With two dogs and a 2 year old running around the house, our carpets and furniture need cleaning on a regular basis. It's nice to know that all I need to do is pick up the phone and I have no more worries. In this day and age, it is a very pleasant surprise to come across a company who will do what they say they will do when they say they will do it and with very little supervision. Kudos to Kent Clean!!! Thanks Larry!"
