Choosing carpet for your workplace? | Elite Dry Carpet Cleaning Australia and Maintenance Services

The importance of carpet in a workplace is often overlooked, yet it plays a critical role in commercial settings.

Aside from helping set the atmosphere in your workplace (first impressions do count), carpet also provides sound insulation, underfoot comfort and a non-slip floor.

Tom Peck, Elite Carpet Dry Cleaning Adelaide franchisee who has spent years working in commercial workspaces, says this checklist will have you well prepared when seeking the advice of a carpet specialist.

  • What activities will go on in this area?
  • How much foot traffic daily can be expected? Or wheelchairs or supply carts and trolleys?
  • On a typical day, will there be spills and stains or dirt tracked in? If so, what type of spills and stains?
  • Will the carpet be exposed to intense sunlight?
  • What’s your day-to-day cleaning budget?
  • What’s your long-term carpet maintenance budget?

“Identical carpet in different environments will require very different upkeep. Some will need weekly or fortnightly professional cleans; others may still look good with only a professional dry clean every three or four months” Tom says.

He tells of one commercial business spending about $70,000 installing new carpet with lots of yellow, white and pale blue in the pattern. The light colouring may have worked in a professional office with little foot traffic but this environment was bustling. Within a week, a professional carpet dry clean was needed with fortnightly professional treatments from then on.

Personally, Tom is a fan of the new generation of commercial grade carpet tiles that produce a hardwearing, long-lasting surface with the quality of regular carpet.

Carpet tiles are enjoying a resurgence in workspaces, including waiting rooms and reception areas, hotels, jewellery stores and travel agents.

“Professional carpet cleaners are able to replace a tile that’s beyond repair as part of the maintenance upkeep – and that’s a lot more cost-effective than getting a carpet layer in to redo a big section,” Tom says.
