A Good Bank Cleaning Service is an Investment in the Community
Our friendly neighborhood banks handle our money, underwrite our mortgages and help us when we’re ready to start a new business.
It’s a fair statement that banking is pretty important in our daily lives. If you’re the owner of a bank cleaning service, then you know how important it is to keep the friendly neighborhood bank free of dust and dirt. And nowhere is this more important than in the condition of the carpets—the first thing a customer sees when they walk through the doors.
There are three steps to maintaining clean, great looking carpets: vacuum frequently, clean up spills promptly, and contract a professional carpet cleaning company that specializes in hot water extraction to clean the carpets. Knowing this is the secret to having a successful bank cleaning service.
Dirt dulls a carpet’s surface and causes matting. Dirt comes in a variety of causes: air pollution, toxic outdoor vapors such as new asphalt and car exhaust, and the most common—on the bottom of everyone’s shoes. Walking on dirty carpet works dirt and dust deep into carpet fibers. Once there, not only does dirt become more difficult to remove, it can actually damage the carpet.
The best weapon in the bank cleaning war against dirt is a really good vacuum cleaner, one that adjusts to carpet height and has a gentle yet strong suction power. Less expensive vacuums pick up surface dirt and nothing deeper, and can actually contribute to dulling down an aging carpet.
In a bank cleaning environment, spills are inevitable and must be cleaned up quickly. The sooner a spill is removed, the less time it has to penetrate and leave a stain. To clean up a spill, remove as much of it as possible by blotting. Use club soda to saturate the area, and then blot and dry.
In the life of every carpet there comes a time for a good, professional carpet cleaning. For most carpets, this is once every 12 months, more often in high-traffic areas or for lighter colored carpets, or in compliance with the manufacturer’s warranty. When considering a professional carpet cleaning service, look for a company that uses hot water extraction only.
Beautiful carpets beautifully maintained are a joy to behold and with proper care can remain a thing of beauty for us to enjoy for many years to come.
