Each year thousands of people are injured as a result of a slip and fall when entering a building entrance, and the first line of defense that most building owners employ is entrance carpet matting.
Facility managers that successfully implement a high-performance matting system as part of a green cleaning program can keep their facilities cleaner and healthier for longer periods of time, which can keep chemical use, green or conventional, to a minimum.
As more managers and owners choose environmentally-friendly and sustainable options in other phases of their business, many may wonder which method is a better carpet choice: Low-moisture cleaning options or standard hot water extraction.
There is a tendency to believe more is better in all types of cleaning situations. For instance, some building managers believe that, when it comes to thoroughly cleaning carpets, more water is necessary.
Understanding the key distinctions between today’s carpet cleaning options — including hot water extraction, encapsulation, spin bonnet and dry extraction — will help you select an option that best meets your maintenance goals.
Just like any other floor surface, carpet takes a beating from foot traffic. And, if a facility has extended hours of operation and a high occupation density, the carpet can receive quite a bit of abuse.Few things take away from an otherwise clean carpet more quickly than soiled traffic lanes, making prevention a fundamental aspect of cleaning.
