Your carpet can be one of your company's most expensive, and most abused, assets. Protecting that asset can not only save you money in the long run, but also says a lot about the character of your organization. At Whittaker, we believe that your carpet should always look its best.
The Whittaker Comprehensive "Planned" Approach identifies the total program of maintenance for the proper care of any facility's carpet. Our integrated, four-step process prevents the buildup of sticky chemical residues and soil, protecting the color and appearance of expensive, carefully chosen carpets.
The following is a comprehensive carpet maintenance program that Whittaker has cultivated over 50 years of industry experience. Following these steps will ensure that you save time, save money, and that your carpets always look their best.
Preventative maintenance is the least costly yet most important and effective means to protect carpet appearance. Since 80% of soil is tracked-in on the feet of building visitors and occupants, the goal at this level is to reduce the amount of soil that actually contacts the carpet to limit its accumulation. Components include:
Walk-off mats at all entrances and hard-to-soft transition points to remove dirt, grease, and oil from shoes prior to tracking.
Protective mats in areas where excessive matter is tracked onto carpeted areas, such as underneath a water fountain, coffee bar, or print station.
