What Are The Best Tools For Commercial Carpet Cleaning?

Whether you own a restaurant, hotel, or a small office, you want to make sure you take care of your property. One of the most important tasks is cleaning. A clean space is going to present the right atmosphere to customers, clients, and guests. One task within cleaning your property is handling carpets. There is no one-size-fits-all answer for cleaning carpets. The type of carpets you have, the size of the carpets, and other information about your property will likely impact the best way to clean them. But there is some good news, Bissell BigGreen Commercial has many products designed for any type of carpet and floor care project you are working on. 

What Is Commercial Carpet Cleaning Equipment?

Many of the top cleaning equipment brands have different products for residential use vs commercial use. This is because, businesses are often larger and need to clean more frequently than home owners or apartment renters. It is important to get commercial cleaning equipment for your business as this equipment is often designed to handle the needs of businesses better than residential products. For example, commercial cleaning equipment includes vacuum cleaners that might be more powerful, have larger capacities, or have larger cleaning paths than your at-home vacuum cleaner. Additionally there are many commercial products homeowners would never buy like extractors, floor machines, floor scrubbers etc. Even vacuums designed for homeowners often come in many different varieties based on the different needs of different properties. For example a small apartment with no carpets could use a different vacuum compared to a large home with pets and kids making messes. In a similar vein, the machines recommended for businesses will be affected by your property’s unique needs. 

Choosing The Right Vacuum For Your Business' Carpets

There are a few key factors you should consider when looking for vacuum cleaners for your business. 

  • Maneuverability/Area: One of the common tradeoffs in cleaning equipment is maneuverability vs size. Larger vacuum cleaners can clean a large space quickly but often sacrifice ease of use. For example, a vacuum with a larger head and larger capacity will be heavier and more cumbersome to move around. By contrast, small lightweight vacuums will take longer to clean large areas but can be moved under and around furniture and tight corners. Consider the layout of your property when making a decision about a vacuum cleaner. 
  • Carpet Types: Different types of carpets need different types of vacuum cleaners. A thicker carpet with looser carpet fibers is going to need a deep cleaning vacuum that can pull dirt and debris from deep within the carpet. While thin carpets might not need the same degree of suction power. 
  • Your Business: If you have a hotel, apartment building, or other property that is pet-friendly you will likely need special cleaning equipment that can handle messes made by pets. Whereas if you own a small office with thin carpeting, you can probably use different vacuums and cleaning equipment.

Does Your Business Need an Extractor?

Another thing to consider is other carpet cleaning tools like a power extractor. The BG10 for example is one of the most popular tools for cleaning stains and deep cleaning carpets. With its additional upholstery tool it can be used by many businesses to clean furniture as well as carpets. Many businesses prefer owning and using a BG10 instead of needing to hire commercial carpet cleaners to deep clean their carpets. Again, it is important to consider the unique needs of your properties. Companies in the hospitality industry often benefit from BG10 extractors because of the frequency that carpets and furniture get stained.
