A Guide to Protecting Your Office Carpet, New York, New York

New office carpets look bright, soft, and welcoming. Over time, however, heavy foot traffic will wear them down until visible damage can’t be ignored. Sometimes the problem becomes so severe you’ll have to replace the entire carpet. Extend the life of your office carpets by following the guide below. 

How to Prevent Office Carpet Wear & Tear

How Foot Traffic Causes Damage

Shoes and other abrasive materials rubbing and scraping against the carpet create micro-tears in the carpet fibers. These tears trap dirt, making the carpet look soiled and worn down over time. Cleaning doesn’t get to the root of the problem, so no matter how often you scrub, your carpet will quickly look dirty again.  

Heavily Trafficked Areas

Protecting Your Carpet

Even with perfect care, carpets don’t last forever, and most need to be replaced every 10 years or so. Still, there are steps you should take to prolong your carpet’s usefulness. For commercial offices, it’s best to choose and install a carpet with pile patterns that are traffic- and stain-resistant. It’s a lot easier to clean and much more durable than ordinary patterns when cared for properly. Have your office cleaning service vacuum regularly, and schedule routine professional cleaning services to keep your carpets in top shape. You can also put down protective mats in strategic areas to minimize wear.
