In a city where suitable and safe public transport is lacking, the Gautrain in Gauteng has become the go-to for business and airport commuters. During rush hour, it’s choc-a-block, and the hours between 9am and 3.30pm are not much better. How do you maintain cleanliness standards and adhere to the public transport health and safety requirements in such a busy setting?  Dry carpet cleaning is your answer. In fact, in most places where there is all-day heavy foot-traffic, dry carpet cleaning is ideal. Examples of such places include hotels, casinos, restaurants, shopping centres and conference rooms.

Here is why dry-carpet cleaning makes business sense:

You have long operating hours.

Your commuter train, bus, hotel, casino, restaurant, conference centre or shopping mall is unceasingly busy. By their very nature, they have long operating hours and hence, little time for maintenance. Having a disruptive cleaning regime simply means a loss of business. Dry carpet cleaning is a viable solution because it requires no downtime: people can walk on the carpet while it is being cleaned. Wet carpet cleaning, on the other hand, takes hours – and even days – to dry.

You are a stickler for cleanliness.

There is a common misconception that dry carpet cleaning is not as effective as wet carpet cleaning. Wet carpet cleaning is associated with more of a deep clean and hence capable of eliminating allergens like dust.

But dry carpet cleaning is just as effective. A professional dry carpet cleaning company is able to provide the correct materials and equipment to effectively clean your carpets in a short time frame.

You want to save money.

Dry carpet cleaning uses virtually no water, which becomes costly if used in large volumes. Dry carpet cleaning involves a professional carpet cleaner, who sprinkles a small amount of an absorbent compound over the carpet, using a mechanised brush to work it through the carpet, dissolving dust, dirt and grime.  In most cases, a commercial vacuum cleaner would merely draw up any residue.

You have delicate carpets.

Your carpets are made from natural fibres, such as hemp. Dry carpet cleaning is especially effective for these kinds of materials, because there is no chance of water damage.

You need to keep your customers safe.

If your facility is dirty, there is a greater chance of accidents happening. For instance, mud or a banana peel left on the carpet, might lead to someone slipping. You may be liable for that. Dry-carpet cleaning will minimise these hazards.

You want a sustainable solution.

With increasing costs and decreasing maintenance budgets, you need a carpet cleaning method that keeps to industry standards and those required by the Department of Health, but that doesn’t cost you an arm and a leg. Dry carpet cleaning uses cleaning equipment that effectively cleans dirt and grime, without the need for additional and costly labour. You will keep within budget by using a professional cleaning service provider skilled in dry carpet cleaning.

In addition, the use of chemicals and water is minimal, hence you will tick the environmentally-friendly box too.
