Commercial carpets are an important part of many businesses, providing a comfortable and professional surface for employees and customers. However, commercial carpets can also be expensive to replace, so it’s important to take steps to extend their lifespan.

Here are five tips on how to extend the life of your commercial carpet:

  1. Vacuum regularly: Vacuuming is the most important thing you can do to extend the life of your commercial carpet. Vacuuming removes dirt and debris that can damage the carpet fibers over time. It’s important to vacuum commercial carpets at least once a day, or more often in high-traffic areas.
  1. Spot clean spills immediately: Spills can damage commercial carpets if they’re not cleaned up quickly. When a spill occurs, blot it up immediately with a clean cloth. Avoid rubbing the spill, as this can spread it and make it more difficult to remove. If the spill is stubborn, use a mild detergent and water solution to clean it up.
  2. Have your carpet professionally cleaned regularly. Professional carpet cleaners use powerful equipment and cleaning solutions to remove deep-seated dirt and grime. They can also help to remove stains and restore your carpet’s original appearance.
  3. Rotate your carpet regularly. Rotating your carpet will help to distribute wear and tear evenly. To rotate your carpet, simply move it 180 degrees or 90 degrees every 6-12 months.
  1. Protect your carpet from furniture: Heavy furniture can damage commercial carpets if it’s not placed properly. Place felt pads under furniture legs to protect your carpet. You may also want to consider using a chair mat under rolling chairs.

Bonus Tip: Avoid using harsh chemicals to clean your commercial carpet. Harsh chemicals can damage the carpet fibers and make them more susceptible to wear and tear. Instead, use mild detergent and water solutions to clean your carpet.


By following these five tips, you can extend the life of your commercial carpet and keep it looking its best for years to come.
