4 Carpet Cleaning Myths To Ask Your Pro Office Cleaners About

Cleaners Dallas TXAt Alta Clean, we can help you keep your Dallas, TX business looking great for you, your employees and your customers.  From hard surface cleaning to dusting and window washing, we offer comprehensive janitorial services for just about any kind of business.  One of the most important services we offer is carpet care and restoration.  Unfortunately, there are some business owners and managers who think that they can reduce their cleaning budget by eliminating daily carpet care and periodic deep cleaning.  Because carpets are underfoot, they think that no one will notice if they’re dirty or grimy.  If you’re one of those people who thinks it’s a good idea to cut carpet-cleaning corners, it may be because you’re laboring under some false assumptions about office carpet cleaning like:

Dark Carpeting Doesn’t Need Cleaning
If your office carpeting is dark-colored or has a bold pattern, you know that it gets just as dirty as light-colored carpeting – it just doesn’t show up as easily.  Regular vacuuming by your janitorial team is important for everyday cleaning but deep, steam cleaning is necessary to remove embedded dirt, ground-in grime and all of the disease-causing germs and allergens that only hot water can kill.  Both vacuuming and steam cleaning are also effective at removing bits of dirt and debris that act like sandpaper on carpet fibers.  Damaged fibers can cause your carpeting to wear out faster, which means you’ll have to replace it sooner than necessary.

No Customers On Your Carpeting Means No Cleaning Is Necessary
If you don’t have customers coming into your business or carpeting is only in employee-accessed areas, your carpeting still requires regular attention.   While your carpeting may not have to impress customers, it still has to look clean and be sanitary for your employees.  Working in an office with dirty carpeting can lower your employees’ morale, which can lead to lower productivity.  Keeping the work environment clean and healthy shows your employees that you care about them and it will also help when you’re trying to recruit new employees.

Vacuuming Is All The Care Your Carpets Need
Vacuuming is a vital part of carpet care and it is useful for removing dirt and debris from carpeting that can abrade and eventually discolor the fibers but it’s not the only thing your office carpeting needs.  Vacuuming can’t remove the dirt that’s fallen deep into the carpet fibers.  It can’t remove stains and it can’t kill bacteria living in your carpeting.  Regular steam cleaning by cleaning professionals can finish the job that vacuuming starts.

All You Should Look For In A Carpet Cleaning Company Is Great Equipment
There’s no doubt that good, state-of-the-art equipment is important, but the cleaning company you hire to take care of your office carpeting must have trained employees with experience cleaning all different types of carpeting.  If the technicians handling the machinery don’t know what they’re doing, you won’t get the carpet cleaning you expect.  In addition to being trained in using their equipment properly, pro cleaners know exactly which products, in which quantities, to use to get the best results.

Our professional carpet cleaners at Alta Clean will ensure that your carpeting looks good and is sanitized for everyone who enters your place of business.  Call us at Alta Clean at (940) 355-0494 to get expert help from cleaners who know how to make your business shine.  You can also visit www.altaclean.net to find out more about us and the services we offer.

Cleaning Services In Dallas offers 6 Tips For Keeping A Clean Office

Cleaning Services DallasAt Alta Clean, we provide cleaning services to the Dallas area that keep our clients’ places of business looking great every day; but if you don’t have professional cleaning services coming into your office regularly, it can be hard to try to run your business and take care of the cleaning at the same time.  Here are some tips that will make it easier for you and your staff to keep it clean and uncluttered:

1 – Think Like A Customer
Take a good, hard look at your office as if you were a customer walking in for the first time.  It’s easy when you work in a place every day to get used to the way things look, feel and smell; but that doesn’t mean it’s acceptable or healthy.  You can also enlist the help of a spouse or someone else who’s never been in your office and who will have a more critical eye than you.

2 – Go Paperless
Paper is not only an expensive resource, it causes a huge amount of clutter on a desk and in an office. Where you can, eliminate paper waste by storing files electronically and using the internet for written communication as much as possible.

3 – Clean Up Food Debris
If you can, ask your employees not to eat at their desks or workstations but in the breakroom.  If they have food in or on their desks, make sure it’s cleaned up immediately to make work areas look neater and to avoid insect infestations.  To keep your breakroom as crumb-free as possible, keep a broom and dustpan nearby along with paper towels and spray surface cleaner.  Pick one day each month to clean the refrigerator out so that you don’t end up with moldy containers of food in the fridge.

4 – Keep Cleaning Supplies On Hand
Even if you hire a company like Alta Clean to handle cleaning services for your Dallas-area business, you should keep a basket of cleaning supplies around for emergencies and for cleaning things that can get dirty a lot.  Keep paper towels, a spray cleaner, microfiber cloths, furniture polish, rubbing alcohol and a package of moistened wipes made for electronics around for between-janitor-visits cleaning.  It’s a good idea to use the wipes on a daily basis to clean especially-germy surfaces like telephones, keyboards, and computer mice.

5 – Purge And Declutter
Clutter doesn’t have to be dirty for it to be bad for your business.  Too many items can create a dangerous working environment for employees who can’t quickly access exits in case of an emergency.  In addition, clutter creates a tripping/falling hazard for your employees and your customers.  Make sure you actually need all of the items you have in your office, including personal knick-knacks, potted plants, furniture and electronics.

6 – Get Professional Help
If you find you’re spending more time cleaning than working at making your business successful, it may be time to throw in the towel and call the pros for help.  Professional office cleaners have one job – cleaning – and they do it well.  Professionals have a cleaning routine that enables them to clean and sanitize every area of your office thoroughly and efficiently.

To ensure that your office is a clean, healthful environment for both you and your customers, give us a call at Alta Clean at (940) 355-0494.  You can also visit us online at www.altaclean.net to find out more about us and our services.
