Get The Facts On Vacuuming

COMMERCIAL CLEANING SERVICES

Hand put the last piece of jigsaw puzzle to complete the mission

Vacuuming Facts

Based on an analysis conducted by Dupont Company, in a typical commercial office environment 74-79% of carpet soil is dry and insoluble and must be removed with regular vacuuming. Otherwise, it will remain in your carpet even after solution-based deep cleaning. The remaining 16-22% soluble soil requires cleaning solution to dissolve before removal can be accomplished.

Removing loose soil, while it remains on the carpet surface, prevents dirt from moving down to the lower levels of the carpet pile and damage the carpet fibres. Without regular vacuuming and cleaning, most carpet wears out or devolves to an unacceptable appearance long before it should.

This is why professional carpet cleaning specialists always insist on vacuuming—not only on a regular basis—but especially prior to deep cleaning and extraction. In fact, the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) Carpet Maintenance Guidelines state that carpet should be vacuumed prior to deep cleaning as it makes a significant difference in the end result.

If your carpets are looking weathered, it may be time to examine your vacuuming program with a carpet maintenance professional.

Knowledge experts in carpet care.

Do you ever wonder why stubborn spots won’t come out even after you’ve had your carpets cleaned?

Products and methods used by some other commercial carpet cleaners can often lead to a phenomena called “wicking,” when only the surface stain is removed from the carpet, and as it dries, the water rises to the surface carrying dirt from the base of the carpet fibre up with it.

ServiceMaster Clean’s low-moisture commercial carpet cleaning process uses specialized equipment and chemical-free cleaning products that prevent wicking from occurring, while also offering many other advantages over traditional hot-water cleaning.

Speed drying is another technique employed to control wicking, using specialized drying equipment to speed up the drying process and minimize the chance of spots returning. Additionally, there are anti-wicking cleaning agents that are designed to control wicking.

The best way to prevent wicking is through a regularly scheduled carpet maintenance program. By cleaning the carpet each month, new soil build up is removed preventing the soil from embedding deeper down the carpet fibre.

With ServiceMaster Clean’s scheduled carpet care maintenance programs, interim cleaning processes such as vacuuming, spot and stain removal, plus machine agitation with environmentally friendly, low-moisture cleaning product are employed, and a hot water extraction treatment is only required once or twice a year, depending on the traffic in your facility.

Professional carpet maintenance programs can help reduce the effects of the past and provide a brighter future for your carpet.\

At ServiceMaster Clean, we not only professionally clean your commercial carpet, we also ensure our work meets your standards by conducting a follow up call after each visit.

Carpet Maintenance – Times Have Changed

Times have changed

Save time, energy and money.

Technology has greatly improved in the commercial carpet cleaning industry over the last few years in an effort to provide more environmentally friendly, effective and efficient results.

While there are many options available, the low-moisture, encapsulation process is considered the most effective and carpet-manufacturer approved technology for commercial carpet cleaning today.

ServiceMaster Clean’s encapsulation method uses specialized equipment and environmentally friendly, low-moisture solution to greatly reduce re-soiling issues and drying time.

How Does It Work?

With specialized equipment, cylindrical brushes move the soil from the bottom of the carpet to the top and a special environmentally friendly, low moisture solution surrounds the dislodged soils and holds them in suspension in a dry residue. A counter-rotating brush then removes the suspended soil immediately into a collection bin, and any remaining dry residue is removed by vacuuming.

What are the further benefits to low-moisture, encapsulation carpet cleaning?

  • Reduces water usage by over 80% from traditional carpet cleaning process
  • Environmentally friendly and qualifies for LEED points
  • Carpet manufacturer-approved process
  • CRI approved equipment and cleaning solutions
  • Carpet is dry and usable in 20 minutes which reduces the risk of “Slip & Fall”

With over 60 years of industry experience, ServiceMaster Clean provides the most effective and up-to-date innovations in commercial carpet care.

A Clean Carpet is Steps Away……..

A Clean Carpet is Steps Away…

Soil is the natural enemy of carpet. It attaches itself to sticky residue left behind from things like coffee spills. Without proper cleaning, soil will remain in the carpet and damage the fibres, leading to fading, discolouration, matting, fraying and ultimately, the premature and costly replacement of your carpet.

Although a regular commercial carpet maintenance program is ideal to maintain your carpet, a professional full restorative carpet cleaning should take place at least once a year to remove the accumulation of soil build up in higher traffic areas within your facility.

ServiceMaster Clean’s full restorative carpet care program involves a five-step process:

  • Proprietary Capture and Removal® deep vacuuming
  • Spot & stain removal
  • Low-moisture pre-spray & agitate with cleaning solution
  • Hot water rinse & extraction
  • Expedited Drying

At ServiceMaster Clean, we not only clean your carpet with our environmentally friendly and proprietary products, equipment and processes, we also ensure that our work meets your standards by conducting a follow up call after each visit.

With over 60 years of industry experience, we offer our customers the most effective and up-to-date innovations in commercial carpet care. Let ServiceMaster Clean provide a custom commercial carpet cleaning program that is right for your facility.

Green cleaning not only minimizes impact on the environment, recent studies have shown that sustainable buildings, or buildings that go green, have measurable financial gains due to employee health, productivity and retention as well as lower operating costs.

Green cleaning is one of the easiest and fastest ways for building managers to make their facilities healthier for employees, not to mention their contribution to the overall environment. Plus, it offers the ability to earn LEED® points in the process.

The Canadian Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) Green Building Rating System™ is the nationally accepted benchmark program for measuring and documenting success of high-performance green buildings for every building type, whether you have an existing building (LEED-EB) or a new construction (LEED-NC).

LEED is a point-based rating system whereby points are earned for building attributes considered environmentally beneficial.

ServiceMaster Clean can help you to earn up to 8 of a maximum 14 points in the area of Material & Resources and up to 9 of a maximum 19 points in the area of Indoor Environmental Quality through our Healthy Office Cleaning programs.

ServiceMaster Clean has developed the most advanced products and methods to make green cleaning as effective as traditional cleaning. Not all green cleaning products are independently audited and certified green, however. ServiceMaster Clean is one of the only cleaning companies whose products are certified by the leading environmental organizations. ServiceMaster Clean green cleaning is a highly efficient and effective cleaning system that is built around these advanced, innovative products.

ServiceMaster Clean offers a full range of cleaning services that will help you to keep your office healthy and productive. Whether it’s providing regular janitorial services, sanitizing workstations and high traffic surfaces or using environmentally friendly products and processes, we understand the power of a clean and healthy work environment.

ServiceMaster Clean Fuel Surcharge Information (FSC)

IMG_9618 (1)ServiceMaster Clean Fuel Surcharge Information (FSC)

At ServiceMaster Clean we haven’t raised most of our prices for years and when you run a fleet of 22 service vans and equipment fuel add ups ☺

The fuel surcharge for exterior is $ 10.00 per day on site and $ 15.00 per Floor Care order, the FSC does not apply to rental units only on project work and program work in our floor care and exterior cleaning service lines.

At ServiceMaster we not only use fuel to get to the site but to run most of our equipment.

We configured the pricing to have little impact which is reflected in the daily rate for exterior. Most exterior projects are one day and some can be week with this method they are weighted to the amount of days on site.

For Floor Care most of our projects and program work are under a day so we went with a per job.

When we were assessing our pricing, we had a look to see what the industry was doing regarding fuel and we came up with this model.

Roof Cleaning & Treatment – It’s That Time Of Year – Summer

Most of our cleaning services have seasonal variations that make them more appropriate for certain parts of the year. For example, windows and façades are more common in the spring, gutters in the fall, and carpets around winter or the spring. We’re entering roof cleaning season, which is more essential this year. The long, wet and cool winter has been fertile for moss, mold and mildew growth on roofs, which need to be dealt with before they start to damage its integrity and appearance. Left unchecked, they can cause irreparable damage in less than decade in certain conditions. We have seen roofs requiring rebuilds in under a half its expected life span. With the summer finally here, it is the best opportunity to remove them and prevent them from coming back.

Most of our cleaning services have seasonal variations that make them more appropriate for certain parts of the year. For example, windows and façades are more common in the spring, gutters in the fall, and carpets around winter or the spring. We’re entering roof cleaning season, which is more essential this year. The long, wet and cool winter has been fertile for moss, mold and mildew growth on roofs, which need to be dealt with before they start to damage its integrity and appearance. Left unchecked, they can cause irreparable damage in less than decade in certain conditions. We have seen roofs requiring rebuilds in under a half its expected life pan. With the summer finally here, it is the best opportunity to remove them and prevent them from coming back.

We employ a multi-step process, starting with physically removing growths and the organic material they may be growing on. The warmer weather dries out deposits, loosening them and making them easier to remove and stop repeat growth. The hot weather also makes it safer for our staff to access difficult places. Although our staff utilizes rope access and safety restraint systems that should theoretically allow us to access all roofs, a wet slippery surface will limit what we can do. The summer months offer us the maximum mobility over the roof surface. Finally we apply a roof treatment that will retard any growth for several years. Undertaking such a process every few years, will ensure that a roof will remain at peak durability for the duration of its expected lifespan.

If you have a building requiring a roof cleaning (or never considered that you might need one) why not give us a call?
