Preventative Maintenance Program

Preventative Maintenance Program for Carpet


Steam Sweepers LLC works with facility managers, maintenance personnel, janitorial contractors, and many others responsible for commercial carpet maintenance. We will develop a complete maintenance program for your commercial facilities. Steam Sweepers will custom design specifications exclusively for your facility’s needs.

Your carpet maintenance plan will include detailed instructions for three major maintenance categories: preventative, daily, and periodic.

Preventative maintenance program includes locating the placement for mats. Entry mats function as a first line of defense by preventing loose soils and dirt from being carried into the facility. As your employees and visitors walk across the mats, loose soils become trapped in the mat fibers before reaching the carpeting. Pivot points may also require mat placement. Your facility may require these mats throughout the year or seasonally depending upon location and traffic patterns. It is extremely important to include maintenance of these mats into your daily and periodic cleaning tasks.

Daily carpet maintenance is critical. Vacuuming is the single most cost effective way to prolong the life of your flooring investment. Up to 80% of dry soil can be removed from your carpeting by vacuuming daily. Steam Sweepers will create a daily plan for your staff based on traffic patterns and volume in you facility. This program is typically implemented by your in-house maintenance personnel or janitorial service company.

Periodically scheduled carpet cleaning will preserve the beauty and cleanliness of your facility. This is typically the most overlooked category in facility maintenance. Steam Sweepers will recommend a more frequent schedule for deep cleaning of high traffic zones and a less frequent schedule for many other areas.
