Why You Need To Hire a Cleaning Company During COVID-19

Over the last couple of months there’s been an influx of visitors in Edmonton and surrounding areas due to the Stanley Cup playoffs that took place in the city, and now that cases are starting to increase again, it’s imperative that you consider hiring a cleaning company for your business.

Did you know?

COVID-19 can stay active in fresh droplets anywhere from eight to fourteen minutes. Crazy right? Even crazier is that a sneeze can spread droplets from up to twenty-three to twenty-seven feet from the nose, and with people walking in and out of businesses every day, you never know what they could be tracking in. As of September 29, there were 406 new COVID cases reported in Alberta, which brings us to the article’s importance and why you need to hire a cleaning company during COVID-19. Here are some reasons why hundreds of business owners choose us.

We Use Specialized Equipment and Chemicals

Our team is equipped with the best cleaning equipment and environment-friendly solutions to keep your workplace properly sanitized. With our new ionization backpack, we’re able to effectively eliminate the spread of bacteria. The “Victory Backpack,” as we call it, is a cordless electrostatic sprayer that we use with our high-grade germicide to clean and disinfect high traffic surfaces while minimizing the risk of spreading. The backpack can coat up to 23,000 square feet, which allows us to disseminate the germicide quicker and provide better coverage as well. The best part is that the application process is hands-free, so you don’t need to wipe down any surfaces. The best part about the backpack is that it uses less fluid than your typical sprayer and covers more surface area while doing so, making every drop go to use.

Deeper Clean vs. Surface Clean

The common misconception in this industry is that using a damp cloth to clean a dirty surface will get the job done and disinfect. To make sure that something is properly sanitized, you have to ensure a proper “dwell time,” which is the amount of time a germicide must stay wet on surfaces in order to be effective against germs or bacteria to actually “disinfect.” Although it depends on the surface type and temperature, there is evidence of COVID-19 being able to survive on surfaces or objects from anywhere between a few hours or a few days. So, it’s important that your business is receiving the proper sanitization procedures. If you’re going with the “wipe it down with a cloth” technique, you could actually be spreading the bacteria/germs if not done correctly.

Highly Trained Staff

Right now, more than ever, it’s so important that you have a team that’s passionate and motivated to get the job done right the first time. Far too often we have seen companies hire a commercial cleaner only to find out that the job was only half done. This is really sad to hear/see given the situation with COVID-19, but just shows the importance that if the team isn’t on point, you could be endangering lives. We treat the space as if it was our own, because, in a lot of cases with the pandemic, it is our own, as to get over this “hump,” we all need to work together. Our motivation is to keep you and those around you safe from contracting any sort of sickness/illness. We follow a strict code of ethics and ensure excellence in whatever job we have in front of us. The investment into a cleaning company you may think isn’t worth it. But when you compare it to the consequence of potentially losing credibility as a business due to someone tracking in unwelcomed bacteria and it wasn’t addressed, it’s worth every penny. The best part is we offer solutions that cater to any-sized business. Get in touch with us to get a FREE quote! We hope you’re all doing well during these unprecedented times. Have a great October!

Benefits of an Entire Interior Clean

Well, it’s already September, and we’ve been keeping very busy helping businesses maintain a sanitization standard to help flatten the curve of the novel Coronavirus.

We’ve been getting a lot of questions as of late about areas of a building that should be focused on more than others to limit the spread of bacteria and pathogens. Every commercial cleaning company that we have seen will tackle the high traffic areas, and that’s it, but they forget that germs don’t just live in those areas specifically, which is why when you hire us, we will clean the entire interior of your building from top to bottom.

Think about this for a second, if you run a hair salon and let’s say you have five people in the building at once and someone sneezes, that sneeze can expel droplets twenty-three to twenty-seven feet from the nose. The typical size of a small business is 100 to 200 square feet, which means that sneeze can end up on walls, windows, tiles, carpet/flooring, and even furniture.

Now here’s another thing to keep in mind, it’s summer, and everyone is hot so that means a lot of businesses have fans on which can blow bacteria around a space, or have a window open which means that an outside sneeze could get picked up by the wind and stick itself to an area inside your business.

Those droplets are what can spread COVID-19, which as of August 28, 2020, the Alberta Government reported 158 new cases of the virus in the province, and there’s now fear of a second wave.

No company goes through the process of cleaning and disinfecting like we do. We use an extremely high-grade of germicide that not only cleans surfaces but also disinfects the area to ensure there’s no chance of spreading.

The Windows

Regular window cleaning is important as not only does it remove contaminants, but it also increases their lifespan! If you don’t clean them regularly, you increase the risk of etching, which makes the glass more fragile and can then break easily over time, especially if you have tall or wide windows.

The Walls

This is a part of a business that’s not focused on enough or thought of more. Going back to the sneeze, this is where a lot of droplets land or where most aim if they’re unable to cover up. A good clean and disinfect will eradicate the spread of viruses and also brighten up the room!

Carpet Cleaning

As most know, carpets are where everything that’s harmful to your health likes to hang out. Carpets can attract allergens, spread bacteria, and even expose you to pollutants. As a business owner right now, ensuring your carpets are cleaned regularly is of utmost importance as it will keep you, your staff and customers safe.

Tile Cleaning

When you first opened shop, you spent good money on your tiling, so you need to make sure you are preserving it with regular maintenance and routine cleaning! Doing so will remove dirt and other harmful contaminants that can cause lots of wear and tear over time.

Furniture

Furniture is a high traffic and touch area, and in a business, it’s much more important to clean regularly than it would be for your home furniture. Chairs, couches, upholstery, and desks are utilized by different people on a regular basis, and you don’t know where they’ve been or what kind of germs/bacteria they could be tracking in. Over time, dirt, grime, and spills can take their toll on upholstered surfaces, making them look outdated, tired, or even worn out.

Your business depends on an elite cleaning and disinfecting service, which is why we are here for you twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week! Contact us for a FREE quote!

From all of us at Barmel, we look forward to working with you and wish you the best of health.

Commercial Cleaning Checklist for COVID-19

The H1N1 outbreak in 2009 taught businesses many valuable lessons when it comes to sanitization and disinfecting, and currently, with COVID-19, it’s imperative that your business considers a professional disinfection service.

“But I’m already cleaning my business constantly to ensure a safe work environment.”

Awesome! Of course cleaning is important, but disinfecting is another thing entirely. COVID is spread through touch and contact, which means if you don’t disinfect, cleaning could actually spread the bacteria rather than eliminate it. Scary to imagine, really.

As we play host to an NHL hub city for the next couple of months, there will be a significant amount of new foot traffic from other areas and provinces shopping, dining, and engaging in recreational activities. And as we learned from the recent outbreak in Kelowna, disinfecting should be top of mind until there is a vaccine that’s made available.

Many business owners have hired us to take care of their disinfecting to help flatten the curve, where we conduct the service at the end of the day after regular cleaning duties are finished.

Our highly-skilled cleaning experts go through the entire facility and disinfect high traffic areas and common touch points with a high-grade germicide solution that has a high percentage of ethanol.

Here’s a List of Areas We Target

Desks, Tables, Credenzas, File Cabinets, Handles/Pull Areas, Keyboards and Mice, Telephones, conference Tables, Chair Arms, Doorknobs, Light Switches and Plates, Hand Rails, Door Push Plates, Elevator Buttons, Kitchen Countertops, Cabinet Doors/Handles/Knobs, Refrigerator Handles, Coffee Pot Handles, Microwave Doors/Buttons, Photocopier/Printer/Fax, Thermostat, Staplers, Security Alarm Pads, White Board Markers/Erasers, Door Frames, Washroom Sink and Taps, Toilets and Flush Levers, Urinals and Flush Lever, Soap Dispensers, Towel Dispensers, Washroom Counters.

While this is a general list of items that most spaces have, they will vary based upon the type of business you have.

The thing to understand about the process is the “dwell time” a disinfecting agent needs in order to be effective against germs, impurities and bacteria. Using a very damp cloth with disinfectant spray and spraying at the same time, ensures a thorough job and allows the proper dwell time.

While this process leaves a streaky residue feel on surfaces, it’s what needs to happen to ensure the proper sanitization against Coronavirus.

Early evidence has found that COVID-19 can live on a surface or an object anywhere from a few hours to a few days, which is why it’s imperative that proper disinfecting agents are applied every day.

While these may be strenuous steps, they are necessary for the health and safety of customers, staff, and visitors to your business.

We’ll only charge for the additional hours needed to disinfect, and simply will be a temporary price until the threat has subsided entirely.

Your Barmel quality assurance representative can provide you with the Work Authorization form to begin these services at your earliest convenience.

These problems don’t sleep, and neither do we – we’re here for you 24/7, so give us a call and let’s work together to make your space safe for everyone.

From all of us here at Barmel, stay safe, and we wish you the best of health!

Move-In Move-Out Cleaning Checklist

You have packed your belongings, hired the movers, completed the necessary paperwork and ready to move out. Is there anything missing? Performing a thorough cleaning before you move out is beneficial for everyone involved. However, many people don’t consider move-out cleaning because they’re overwhelmed with other things such as packing, loading, and preparing the new place.

While you’re thinking about strategies to renovate your new home or office, move-out cleaning will be an opportunity for you to make a great last impression. You shouldn’t ignore cleaning your place on the day of moving, especially when you have a security deposit on the line. To make life easier, call a professional move-in move-out cleaning service company. If you want to do it yourself, here is a quick move-out cleaning checklist:

Clean the kitchen

It’s always a good idea to start with the kitchen. Cleaning is now easier since you have packed everything and there is nothing left except a few appliances, surfaces, drawers, and cabinets. To clean the drawers and cabinets, use your cleaning product of choice and wipe down surfaces with a sponge. The process will remove deep food stains.

You can use any cleaning solution to sprinkle the surface of the stovetop and brush off any debris. Let the cleaning solution sit for a few minutes before cleaning with the sponge. The same process can be repeated to clean other objects such as the oven and sink.

Appliances

Switch off all the appliances before you clean them. If you’re moving out of an office or commercial building, make sure to clean all the appliances such as refrigerators and freezers. Spray the inside and outside of refrigerators with a solution. After that, use a dry towel to dry them. A pot of boiling water can be placed on the freezer’s floor to defrost it.

Sink and other plumbing appliances

You can use the same cleaning solution to clean almost everything from kitchen cabinets to sinks. You might need a stronger cleaning solution to clear the drainage line. However, cleaning a sink or a bathtub doesn’t require anything special.

Floors

Cleaning a floor is easy when you don’t have to move heavy objects to access several hard-to-reach areas. Since you have packed your belongings, give the floor a quick sweep followed by a mop dipped in water or a floor cleaner. It might be hard to remove hard stains on the floor. Use recommended floor cleaning products to protect the environment.

Living space

The living space might include doors, windows, walls, and carpets. While cleaning doors and windows isn’t a tough job, cleaning dirty carpets requires proper equipment and skill. You can use a carpet cleaning product to remove stains from the carpet. When you clean windows and doors, make sure not to leave streaks. Spray the surfaces and gently wipe them with a smooth cloth.

If you don’t have the time or equipment to perform a satisfactory move-out cleaning, call a team of professional cleaners and let them take care of the job.

How To Clean Your Company Office

A clean business office is a necessity to bring about improved workplace productivity and employee efficiency. There is a clear difference between a cluttered mess and a visually appealing and organized office. If you want to keep your office clean, all you need to do is develop and follow a cleaning schedule. If you don’t have in-house cleaning staff to take care of all the cleaning-related matters, hire a building maintenance company to keep things simple and efficient. Let’s take a look at some of the tips for how to clean a company office:

Disinfect the restrooms

Cleaning is not only necessary to maintain a clean office, but also important to ensure employee safety. Restrooms are a high traffic area in your office that need to be thoroughly cleaned every day. To disinfect the restrooms, use eco-friendly disinfecting cleaners to scrub toilet bowls, the tank and the base of toilets. Also, wipe down sinks and counter areas.

Before you disinfect the toilet bowl and other plumbing fixtures, sweep and mop the floors. Bowel deodorizing cakes will help you make the cleaning process more convenient. Don’t forget to keep a stock of bathroom supplies like soap and paper towels all the time.

Clean the lunchroom

Most offices have a dedicated space where food is prepared or served. If you have a lunchroom in your office, make sure to keep it clean and healthy. The refrigerator should be cleaned and organized. Throw out old food after a few days to keep the refrigerator clean and odor-free. If there is any old food rotting in the refrigerator, wipe down the interior with a disinfectant after disposing of the food. The microwave also requires regular cleaning. Neglecting microwave messes turn into difficult-to-clean stains.

Keep public areas presentable

If your office is always surrounded by customers and clients, public areas in your office must be maintained in a presentable condition. Cleanliness is the best thing you can ensure to leave a good first impression on your clients. A simple example of cleanliness is seating free of dust, stains, and crumbs. If you use newspapers, magazines, or other reading material to keep your customers engaged, keep the material tidy and up to date.

Dusting plants, wall hangings, blinds, and furniture is also a key day-to-day cleaning activity that will help you ensure a hygienic workplace. The best part about hiring a professional commercial cleaning company is that they will deep clean your office from cleaning the hard-to-reach areas to cleaning carpets and mopping floors.

Organize loose papers

Paperwork keeps piling up throughout the year making it difficult to keep a workplace clutter-free and organized. It not only looks dirty but also makes it difficult for employees to find important documents quickly. To avoid the mess, start organizing all the loose papers. Cabinets are good storage units to organize things like estimates, work orders, vendor information, invoices, etc. You can use desktop trays or wall-mounted pockets to keep documents on hand for quick reference.

Having A Clean And Hygienic Workplace Drives Employee Productivity

Most business owners or managers focus on their day-to-day challenges and activities that include acquiring new customers, improving bottom line, managing employees, etc. All of these activities are essential to business growth. However, it’s not wise to overlook small things such as workplace cleanliness. Unhealthy work environments can seriously affect your workplace productivity.

The safety and health of your workers are directly linked with cleanliness and organization. While the cost of healthcare impacts a company’s bottom line, most business managers don’t seem to be overly concerned with promoting overall wellness or driving productivity through a hygienic work environment.

As a business owner or manager, you need to understand that the most vital part of any work environment is its people. If you haven’t yet thought about developing a comprehensive cleaning strategy for your office or facility, it’s never too late. To receive the numerous benefits of a clean workplace, you should start realizing the relationship between employee wellness and cleanliness.

How cleaning impacts worker productivity

Numerous studies have been conducted to identify the relationship between workplace cleanliness and productivity. Almost every research concluded that productivity levels are heavily influenced by office cleanliness. On top of that, good office keeping protocols that thoroughly clean surfaces can have comfort and health benefits.

When your staff experience mild symptoms of discomfort or distress (headaches, itchy eyes, lethargy, dry throat, etc), their overall performance or efficiency levels drop, which ultimately affects your business. So, don’t let dirty carpets, floors, desks, surfaces, or other equipment cause performance loss.

Your company may be unknowingly going through low employee productivity due to a dirty, ill-organized work environment. This is where you need to step in and add workplace cleaning to your top priorities. Maintaining a clean environment is one of the ways to reduce your company’s health-related costs.

Prevent health issues with commercial cleaning services

Your workplace can become a significant source of germs and bacteria if it’s not being cleaned regularly. Viruses and germs on your tabletops can spread to 60% of your workers or visitors within just 4 hours. Therefore, it’s important to thoroughly clean high-touch surfaces like phones, desks, and door handles to prevent germs from spreading. If you don’t have in-house cleaning staff, you can reach out to commercial cleaning services to take care of your cleaning-related needs.

Improved productivity is an outcome of a clean workplace that is free of foul smells and clutter. Apart from health and productivity benefits, cleanliness can result in strong culture and heightened overall workplace satisfaction. The condition of your workplace restroom is one of the indicators of how your company values its workforce.

Cleaning isn’t a one-time job, you have to hire a commercial cleaning service to clean all the key areas in your workplace regularly.

Valuable Carpet Cleaning Tips And Tricks

A clean carpet is critical both for your office and home appearance and the people who live or work in it. While dirt and allergens hidden in your carpet can contribute to various health-related problems, a dirty carpet doesn’t represent a healthy residential or work environment. Despite your efforts at maintaining cleanliness, your carpet will eventually become the victim of spills, dust, and stains.

Therefore, it’s recommended to have professionals regularly clean your carpets and floors to keep your indoor environment healthy. We will provide some valuable carpet-cleaning secrets to help you keep your carpets looking new:

Use shaving cream to remove stains

You probably didn’t know that shaving cream is a good carpet cleaner to remove almost every type of stain. All you have to do is apply the shaving cream directly on the stain and leave it for half an hour. After that, just blot it away with a dry piece of cloth. Now, spray the area with a mixture of water and vinegar, and then wipe away the solution with a cloth.

If you don’t have shaving cream, mix one-part water and one part vinegar and pour it into the sprayer. Now spray the solution on the entire stained area and wait for 15 to 20 minutes. To soak up the solution, use a clean sponge or towel. If the stain is still there, you can repeat the process. After removing the stain, use a towel to absorb the dampness and dry the carpet.

Don’t rub, just blot stains

Press against stains several times with a cleaning solution and a clean paper towel, sponge, or piece of cloth. The secret here is to blot stains and put a small amount of pressure on the stain to soak up. Many people just rub the carpet which eventually causes the particles to get ground into the carpet fibers. Your purpose is to clear stains, not to cause premature breakdown of the fibers. So, make sure to blot from the outside of the stain inward, and don’t spread the stain.

Dishwasher detergent to remove grease

Some greasy stains are hard to clean. The use of a drop or two of dishwasher detergent is the best way to get rid of grease stains. Dishwashing solutions are known for their grease removal properties. It can be super effective in removing the grease on your carpet just the way it removes grease on dishes. Put the detergent in a sprayer and spray it on the stain. And then blot the stained area up. You might need to repeat the process several times to completely remove the stain and restore the carpet to its original condition.

Deep clean regularly

If you want to keep your carpet looking new and fresh, clean it regularly. Steam cleaning is one way to get the job done. This method uses a cleaning solution under pressure injected deep into the carpet with water-jet nozzles. The machine extracts the debris and dirt along with the solution. This method is effective when you want to remove heavy deposits of dirt and grease. It’s recommended to deep clean your carpets every 6 months or so depending on the foot traffic.

Hire professional carpet cleaners

Cleaning a carpet can be a tough job that requires experience and tools. If you don’t have the time or equipment to clean your carpets, contact a professional carpet cleaning company, especially when you want to clean the carpets in your office.

In Edmonton, you can contact Barmel Building Maintenance for all of your building cleaning needs from carpet cleaning to floor waxing. Give us a quick call to get a free quote!

10 Things To Expect From A Commercial Cleaning Service Company

Cleaning services have a wide range of functions in commercial markets. In fact, required cleaning services vary from building to building and area to area. Skyscrapers may have a different cleaning requirement then a normal single floor building. A gym has a different cleaning requirement then a library. Similarly, service providers also have different strengths and weaknesses in their cleaning services.

It falls upon the building managers to decide which commercial cleaning service will be best for their buildings. Industry experts maintain that the best commercial cleaning services are ones that follow the best practices in their operations. These best practices are actually standard operational procedures (SOPs) that are identified over time and based on experience. This blog will help you identify those best practices as you hire a commercial cleaning service.

Registered Commercial Cleaners

If your cleaning service is not registered then chances are the company is not professional and may not have any strategic planning. This means that this company may conclude its business any day. It may also mean that the quality of their services will never be standardized. There will be high chances that this type of unregistered company may have no SOPs at all and may work on an ad-hoc basis only.

Professional Cleaning Team

Registered companies are the ones that actually give a comprehensive consumer experience. They must have a team of professionals that are experienced and know their jobs inside out. When a professional cleaning team is working in your building you can be relaxed as your property will remain safe and your cleaning will be done on time. Professional cleaning teams divide their tasks among them and work in a sequence that does not interfere with any other member of the team.

Systematic Cleaning

Professional cleaners always come prepared, they make a plan before they even start their work. By making a plan they start their work in a systematic manner. This is done because they follow SOPs. They are aware of the best practices in their work and make sure they do not waste their resources and time. Being efficient in their work allows them to provide a perfect experience to their clients.

Equipped With The Right Cleaning Tools

Professional cleaners will ask about your cleaning needs. They will need to know the details so they can get prepared accordingly. If they have to clean carpets for example they will equip themselves accordingly. If they have to clean the drains of a big building they will need equipment accordingly. Any professional cleaning team will bring the right tools to do the job without wasting time.

Usage Of Sanitization Products

Professional cleaners often have to clean places that are overrun with germs. Gym bathrooms and even drainage areas need to be sanitized so that germs do not infect those places again. Some corporate offices even demand that the cleaners disinfect their office equipment which is pretty detail-oriented work. Still, it remains the duty of the professional cleaners to do so.

Fast And Thorough Cleaning

When you hire professional cleaners they make sure they don’t waste your time or theirs. This means they need to clean fast and thoroughly so they don’t have to do it again. This will also require them to be on their heels and make sure the job is done right the first time.

Cleaning Based Requirements

A professional cleaning team will ask their clients if they have any special cleaning requirements. This may include the use of certain products and perhaps restricting the use of some products as well. There are many commercial building owners that desire to clean their buildings with environmentally friendly cleaning products only.

Cleaning Of Fragile Items

Professional cleaners are expected to clean all the items that are in place. This may include the cleaning of fragile items made of glass or other sensitive materials. The cleaning of such items requires extraordinary care. Sometimes cleaning of fragile items becomes hectic as they need more time and resources for cleaning.

Keeping A Cleaning Record

Almost all professional cleaners maintain a record of their clients. This allows them to maintain a professional history with their clients and understand their cleaning requirements. Since they have such information they use it to further provide ease to their clients by offering them better service packages.

Maintaining Online Presence

Professional commercial cleaning services who maintain their digital presence are more successful than their contemporary rivals. This is because their clients have more trust in them and can easily access their previous work via feedback forms and reviews. Apart from that, they can read the testimonials of the experience of their previous customers to get an idea if the company actually provides good cleaning services or not.

Finding The Best Carpet Cleaners In Edmonton

Carpets are an important part of any home or office. They provide us with a very comfortable feeling when we both walk and sit on them. In commercial places like corporate offices and executive workplaces, they offer comfort and add to the decor of the place. Carpets can also reduce the sound of footsteps which can be irritating while people are trying to concentrate. They are also very useful in colder regions of the world. Floors are often the coldest in winter and carpets make sure that you can walk comfortably barefoot on them. With all these benefits of carpets, one significant con is the fact that they require a thorough cleaning.

Health experts often highlight the dangerous germs that are thriving in the lower belts of these carpets. Since normal vacuum cleaners do not have a strong enough pull pressure, germs remain in the carpets and they manifest with time. This creates the need to maintain the carpets with hygienic measures and make sure they remain safe for us. In order to keep the carpets clean and germ-free, the services of professional carpet cleaners are mandatory. Living in Edmonton we are very fortunate to have some of the best cleaning companies. This blog is dedicated to telling you what you need to know when finding the best carpet cleaners in Edmonton and throughout Alberta.

Custom cleaning solutions

The best carpet cleaners will offer you customized cleaning solutions apart from their standard services. Custom solutions may include special anti-germ treatments that will need some sanitizing products to kill off the harmful germs normally found in the carpets. Custom solutions may also include deep liquid wash cleanups. There are a lot of options available when you hire a professional cleaning company.

On-site Cleaning

One big advantage of hiring a professional carpet cleaning company is that they will come to your location. Whether you require cleaning for your home or office carpets. They simply believe in providing a good service and care for your convenience. So make sure you hire carpet cleaners that care for your priorities.

Deep Cleaning

Deep cleaning is simply not possible with a mere Vacuum cleaner. You need to use soaps and relevant cleaning products that make sure all the dirt and stains are removed from the carpets. Carpets may also need thorough rinsing of water and should be dried as well so the carpets do not remain soggy after they’re cleaned. This is why deep cleaning should be left only for professionals.

Environmentally Friendly Cleaning Products

The best carpet cleaners in Edmonton, usually use environmentally friendly products. However, there are products used in some deep cleaning services that may not be suitable for human health. You should make sure that your service provider avoids using such products. There are many alternative products available in the market so it really shouldn’t be a problem for the carpet cleaners to use different products.

Removing Pet Hair From Your Carpets

It would not be wrong to say that killing germs in carpets is easier than removing pet hair. So, you must give priority to this cleaning practice. You must make sure that your carpet cleaners know that you have a pet so they can do a full detail clean with no hair left on the carpets.

Friendly and Professional

Professional service providers must be polite and courteous at all times. If your cleaners are lacking this basic etiquette it means that they most likely aren’t the best company for the job. Plus, why deal with rude people if you’re paying them.

Satisfaction Guaranteed

Professional carpet cleaners make sure they get your feedback after they are done with their cleaning. Your feedback actually means a lot to them and they try to improve themselves based on your comments on their work. Feel free to inform them about your concerns and also make sure you get all the service that you were expecting from them.

Fair Pricing

Good service doesn’t have to be expensive. There are many carpet cleaners based in Edmonton that offer great services at very economic rates. In fact, you can even compare the services and their prices after you check their websites and customer reviews to get an even better idea.

Discounts For Recurring Service

Once you find a good professional carpet cleaner, make sure to get their services on a regular basis. This will make sure that you do not risk losing your money on low-quality service. Furthermore, being a regular customer can sometimes earn attention from the manager and maybe you could get some discounts as well in the future.

They have good customer service

Any professional service provider, of any industry, understands that having professional and respectful customer service is essential for them to grow. It’s important that you get good customer support in case you need to change the schedule of your carpet cleaning service or any other matter you may want to talk to them about.

Leave Feedback

To conclude here we must add that your carpet cleaners must have an online presence. This way you can instantly find out if they are good or not. You can read the previous customer’s reviews on their profiles and add your experience to that list as well. This is the easiest and fastest way to find a good professional carpet cleaning service in Edmonton and surrounding areas.

10 Reasons Why You Should Hire A Commercial Carpet Cleaner

If you think that having your office in a nice physical location and maintaining its appearance outside is enough to succeed, you might want to think again. People focus more on what goes on inside the workplace. One of the first things your employees, clients and guests notice about your company is how clean your floor, furniture, equipment and carpets are. Clean carpets leave a brilliant first impression on all of your guests.

Indoor mats get dirty easily because of the daily foot traffic. Your staff and other visitors bring in a lot of dust, dirt, and asphalt debris from the parking lot. While being inside, people spill drinks and eatables unintentionally as well. All of these are causes of gradual accumulation of debris within rugs, which is very difficult to remove with a normal vacuum cleaner.

There are a lot of commercial carpet cleaning services in Edmonton and surrounding areas which can solve your carpet cleansing problems efficiently. All you have to do is reach out to them so that you can focus on your core operations while they serve you.

Below we’ll provide the top 10 reasons why you should hire a commercial carpet cleaner:

1. Enhancing Appearance

First of all, getting your indoor mats disinfected will greatly enhance the general appearance of your workplace. Your internal and external customers will feel positive about the work environment resulting in a rapid increase in your company’s productivity and sales. A good general impression on the inside will also enhance your overall appearance on the outside.

2. Increase comfort

After having your carpets cleaned by professional carpet cleaners in Edmonton, you will achieve unmatched levels of comfort. What’s better than knowing that you have finally gotten over that one roadblock which was holding your organization back from progressing. Clean rugs will give you that soft and fresh feel which is normally received from walking on brand new carpet.

3. Prolonging the life of your Carpets

People often spill things on indoor rugs occasionally leading to permanent stains and marks all over them. But, this can be avoided through proper and scheduled cleansing. Regular maintenance of your carpets from industry experts will enable you to utilize them to the fullest by prolonging their lifespan.

4. Removing Spots and Stains

Regular spilling on carpets leads to permanent stains and spots if not treated well in time. The longer you leave your carpets stained, the harder it will be for you to clean them.

5. Removing Bad Odors and Smell

Carpets get dirty due to trapped pollutants inside them like dirt, dust, and pesticides resulting in bad odors. As time passes, these smells become a nuisance and getting rid of them is not an easy task. The unattended stains lie there for months giving rise to unbearable smells.

6. Eliminating different Pathogens

Besides giving rise to unwanted smells and bad odors, carpets also act as a medium for producing different kinds of pathogens like bacteria, germs, and mites. They begin to grow at faster rates when these floor coverings become moist or humid. Increase in these deadly pathogens could make your employees sick. Therefore, eliminating these allergens from office carpets should be your top priority.
