How Often Should You Clean Your Commercial Carpet?

Dirt has a knack for finding its way into office buildings. Up to 24 pounds of dirt can be tracked in by 1,000 people coming through an entrance in just a 20-day work period. That’s a lot of dirt!

With commercial carpets getting dusted with dirt and debris so often—especially in high-traffic areas—the question many facility managers wrestle with is: How often do we need to clean the carpets in our building?
