Carpet’s ability to hide and hold soil is one of its greatest attributes.
However, 80% of soil in carpet is hard (sand-like) and will scratch and damage carpet fibers. Without proper scheduled cleaning, it’s only a matter of time before “traffic lanes” become permanent and soiling will not properly come out after cleaning. The fact is: carpet does not wear out–it “uglies out” due to improper or inadequate cleaning.
The solution: a scheduled cleaning plan with cleaning frequencies matched to foot traffic levels and facility type.
