The latest course in Misco College is open for enrollment: Carpet Care, so it seems appropriate that we discuss the importance of a carpet cleaning program. A well maintained and clean carpet can have several benefits, from saving money to improved quality of life.
You put a lot of effort into picking out your carpet color, density, fibers, and pattern, but a cleaning and maintenance program is just as important. Carpets can last up to a decade if taken care of properly, while poorly maintained ones typically last only two or three years.
The Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) has plenty of evidence to support this claim. They have done a number of studies that take into consideration initial cost, plus installation and maintenance of various floor types in places where traffic is heavy and constant. These studies were based over a span of 22 years. The CRI found that, although initial installation and purchase costs may be high, carpets are more cost-effective over the full life of the product. A rug is the kind of investment that easily pays for itself if cared for properly.
A clean carpet lasts longer, improves indoor air quality, and enhances the appearance of any facility. With proper education on carpet care, users can ensure they will get the most out of their long-term investments. The new Carpet Care course will teach users the ins and outs of a carpet maintenance program. Upon completion, they will be equipped with the industry tools needed to ensure facilities get the most out of their carpets, for as long as possible.
