At Kitchener Clean, we offer Total Office Cleaning & Care Packages. These cleaning packages are designed to take care of every inch of your office - from office floors and carpeting to windows washing and kitchen and bathroom cleaning! Carpet cleaning is a vital part of our care packages.
We can provide the most thorough carpet cleaning Kitchener Waterloo has to offer! Although carpeting is sometimes overlooked, it is an important part of your office. Carpet can hold on to dirt and debris better than almost any other type of flooring, so it’s important to get it thoroughly and properly cleaned by the professionals.
When you choose professional carpet cleaning, you will notice many benefits, including:
Longer carpet lifespan: Carpet cleaning is a big part of carpet maintenance. Like anything else, regular maintenance is one of the best ways to prolong the lifespan of your carpet. A longer lasting carpet is good for your business and your wallet! You won’t have to replace your carpeting any time soon, which can be costly and disruptive to your staff.
Protects indoor air quality: Have you ever walked into your office and wondered what that “stuffy” smell was? Unfortunately, carpets can hold on to a lot of dust, dirt, and bacteria. Because of their soft material, carpets easily trap airborne pollutants. When you walk over your carpet, these pollutants are sent into the air again. Working with professional cleaners can help protect your carpets from accumulating pollutants, which will keep you and your staff breathing easier.
Creates a great first impression: Unlike hard flooring, carpeting can more easily accumulate stains from spills and accidents. Even if cleaned up immediately, a stain can remain! Carpet cleaning allows stains to be removed and your carpet looking (and smelling) great again. This will help make a great first impression on new employees on customers.
Improves employee morale: Did you know that employee morale and productivity are improved when employees work in a clean and organized office environment? In general, people feel better when they spend time in a clean workplace. You can help your employees be more productive and feel great at work when you choose professional cleaning services!
Some business owners may be hesitant to invest in a professional cleaning service - isn’t all cleaning done the same way? No, in fact even things such as carpet cleaning can be done in many different ways and with different tools and methods - some more effective than others.
A professional cleaning service will also have all of the right tools, supplies, and the know-how to clean your carpets thoroughly and effectively, without leaving behind excess moisture. At Kitchener Clean, we use the Encapsulation Carpet Cleaning method to clean our customer’s carpets! Learn more about this technique below.
There are different ways to clean carpets. One of the most common ways is through “steam cleaning” - that is what most people think of when they picture carpet cleaning. Steam cleaning does not actually use steam to clean.
It is a method that includes a lot of hot water, which is mixed with detergent. It is then washed into carpeting. After that, the water and detergent solution is removed with a vacuum. As mentioned above, this cleaning method doesn’t actually use steam, but it does use a significant amount of water.
Steam cleaning is a popular carpet cleaning method, but it does have significant drawbacks. Because of the excessive amount of water, it is not possible to completely remove all detergent and water from the carpeting.
When detergent and water are left behind, that means all the particles they picked up are left behind too. Some soil and dirt remain under the surface and will eventually make their way back to the top. This results in dirty carpeting again in a short amount of time.
At Kitchener Clean, we use a new method of carpet cleaning called Encapsulation Carpet Cleaning. Unlike “steam cleaning,” this method of carpet cleaning actually requires very little moisture. It is called a “Very Low Moisture” (or VLM) method of carpet cleaning, also known as dry carpet cleaning.
So, what happens during the process? How does Encapsulation Carpet Cleaning work if it doesn’t use up a lot of water? Fortunately, significant amounts of water are not required to effectively clean carpeting.
Encapsulation Carpet Cleaning uses a polymer solution instead of water and detergent. This solution is applied to the carpeting, and sinks into it quickly. As the solution works its way through the carpet, it surrounds and captures dirt particles within the solution.

An agitation machine is then used to vigorously work the fibres in the carpet. The encapsulated dirt residue is then vacuumed away during the next regularly scheduled vacuuming of the carpets. Encapsulation Carpet Cleaning is one of the most effective ways to clean carpeting. The Encapsulation method keeps carpets cleaner for longer and greatly improves the look of carpeting.
Because carpeting is often placed in high-traffic areas in the office (such as hallways, break rooms, and board rooms), it’s important to invest in a carpet cleaning method that will be effective and keep your carpets looking cleaner for longer.
Carpets sometimes have a bad reputation, but unfortunately, a lot of myths about carpeting aren’t myths at all. It is true that carpets are harder to thoroughly DIY clean and can harbour bacteria and dirt easier than other flooring materials.
Carpeting can accumulate some pretty nasty things. Here are a few common culprits:
Allergens such as pollen
Chemicals such as fertilizers or pesticides
Germs and bacteria such as E. Coli
If your workplace has carpeting, even if it’s just in one hallway or a single room, it’s important that it gets cleaned along with the rest of your office space.
If you choose to skip the carpet cleaning, you could be exposing your employees, your guests, and your new and existing customers to allergens, germs, and possibly even mold! This can cause mild symptoms in some people, but for others who have allergic sensitivities, it can cause major issues such as an allergic reaction or an asthma attack.
As well, unlike hard floors, carpeting can easily become stained and discoloured due to foot traffic, spills, and stains. It only takes an accident or two to cause noticeable changes to your carpet. Although your staff may be used to the large brown stain in the centre of your main meeting room, a new client will notice right away!
Carpet cleaning should be part of your complete office cleaning and care. It simply doesn’t make sense to clean everything except your carpeting! If you need the best carpet cleaning Kitchener Waterloo has to offer, you can rely on Kitchener Clean.
As part of our Total Office Cleaning & Care Packages, we’ll make sure your office carpet is cleaned and maintained so it lasts longer and looks better!
Have you ever walked into an office after a clean, and noticed a strong smell of chemicals? Floor and carpet cleaning are often known as the biggest offenders when it comes to ‘smelly’ office cleaning.
Chemical cleaners not only smell unpleasant, but they can cause a wide range of side effects, including eye and throat irritation, headaches, respiratory issues (can cause or worsen pre-existing conditions), and can even cause cancer with long-term exposure.
Fortunately, there is an alternative. You don’t have to choose chemical cleaning for your carpets. At Kitchener Clean, we want to introduce you to a non-toxic way to clean.
And before you start worrying about ineffective cleaning, you can put that fear out of your mind. High-quality non-toxic cleaners are just as effective as traditional options! At Kitchener Clean, we only use the highest quality EcoLogo or Green Seal certified products when possible in your office.
At Kitchener Clean, we care about your staff and the environment. We want to ensure that everyone who enters your office can breathe easier, and non-toxic cleaning is one of the best ways to ensure that. Not only that, but non-toxic cleaning is significantly better for the environment. With non-toxic cleaning, you won’t only help your staff, you’ll help the earth too!
