When it comes to a commercial office vacuuming program, people aren't sure about specifics.
If the carpet is dirty and most of the dirt can be vacuumed, whose job is it to vacuum? Should it be vacuumed by a carpet cleaner or someone in-house? How often should the floors be vacuumed? What type of vacuum should be used?
Professional cleaners have the information to ensure the carpets stays maintained and stays looking beautiful for a long time.
Most buildings’ RFP (request for proposals) may include how often the carpet needs to be vacuumed, but doesn't say how it should be done. If you are a facility manager in a commercial building, this is information that should be spelled out in advance.
Rarely do RFPs specify different CRI (Carpet & Rug Institute SOA Green Label Program) approved vacuums for different types of carpet or traffic areas in facilities. This is because the average property or facility manager doesn't really know the difference between the different vacuums i.e. a backpack vacuum, counter rotational brush machines or beater bar vacuums.
Depending on traffic and the type of commercial building, it'd might be necessary to vacuum anywhere from daily, weekly, or monthly using several different types of vacuum cleaners. You might vacuum the cubical or offices less frequently than a high traffic area or an entrance area.
We all know that proper vacuuming is important. It improves the indoor air quality which protects occupants from potential harmful contaminants.
Specifying the proper vacuuming frequency and vacuum machine is very important to the success of your carpet and building maintenance programs.
