Commercial Carpet Restoration Cleaning In Denver

Has it been a while since the last carpet cleaning in your business?

Hey it happens, and there is no need to try to explain why. Between taking care of all your responsibilities, caring for your customers, and managing your employees, the last thing you had time for all day was to look at your feet and the carpet. But now it has become apparent that the carpet is in pretty rough shape. Before you hire a company you should determine the answer to these two questions: What kind of cleaning do I need? How can I shop for it without breaking my budget?

What Kind of Cleaning do I Need?

If a carpet has not been cleaned in a while, you need a restoration carpet cleaning. Even though it would be nice to have an exact time frame, the truth is every business is different and will require a restoration carpet cleaning at a different time. Sometimes a business will not need it unless it has been a few years since the last cleaning, but other business get so many contaminants in their carpet they need a restoration carpet cleaning after as little as 3 months since their last cleaning. Look for these things to see if you will need a commercial carpet restoration cleaning:

    • Grease: Lots of grease from a kitchen or a parking lot require heavy-duty cleaners and agitation to remove
    • Heavy traffic patterns: The heavily soiled and compacted fibers will need extra cleaning
    • Lots of spots and spills: The longer they have been in the carpet the more work, cleaners, and time it will take to remove them

How do you get stubborn stains, ground-in dirt, and magnesium chloride out of your commercial carpet? We do it every day while cleaning carpets in Denver with our rotary power extraction wand.

We use a combination of:

    • Proper cleaners and pre-spray for each job
    • Agitation of cleaners in high traffic areas
    • Rotary hot water extraction

We will talk to you and find out what kind of issues affect your carpet the most, and use the right chemistry to safely and thorough remove it from your carpeting. On really compacted and high traffic areas we use a dual cleaning system. By gently agitating the cleaners on the carpet, more contaminants are freed from the carpet and can be removed in the extraction process. Standard carpet cleaning wands spray hot cleaning solution straight down into the carpet, then pull the solution and contaminants straight back up with high-power vacuums. A rotary wand has water jets set on an angle rotating at high speeds, which provides both agitation on the carpet and a thorough flushing of the contaminants from the carpet. The increased scrubbing action of the rotary wand produces amazing cleaning results that could never be expected from a traditional wand. In addition, the rotary wand is equipped with a section of clear tubing in the vacuum hose. This allows the operator to monitor the solution as it is extracted, and continue cleaning areas that are still releasing heavy soils.

Check out our 1:15-second video to see our rotary wand removing heavy grease and ground-in dirt from the high-traffic area of a restaurant. We didn’t select just any rotary carpet cleaner. Ours has received the Gold Seal of Approval from the Carpet and Rug Institute, the highest rating available in the industry.

How Can I Shop for it Without Breaking My Budget?

As you begin to field quotes for having you cleaning done, resist the urge to just hire whoever is cheaper. Remember; Price is what you pay, but value is what you get. In other words, a good way to break the budget is paying for your cleaning twice because of getting a bad job the first time. Instead, ask questions to get an idea of what services are included in an estimate. Some things that might not be include are:

    • Special attention to edges
    • Treating spots and dye transfers
    • Special attention to high traffic areas
    • Dual system cleaning
    • Rotary Extraction/ not bonnet or encapsulation cleaning

So make sure that the estimate you are receiving takes care of the work you want and need done. And As always, get the estimate in writting with all of the service include listed on it.

Remember that a commercial carpet restoration cleaning will be quite a bit more expensive than a regular maintenance cleaning. Sometimes it can run more than 3 times the cost of a maintenance cleaning. So if you want to avoid having to pay a lot for every carpet cleaning, give serious thought to setting up a regular maintenance cleaning schedule.

Before Restoration After Restoration


Have a regular maintenance cleaning of your carpets not only enhances the appearance of your business, but it makes your carpets last longer. Soils in carpet are made of tiny particles with very sharp edges. Those sharp edges cut into your carpet fibers when they are walked on. The cumulative effect of heavy foot traffic on neglected carpet rapidly destroys the fibers. Regular carpet cleaning removes these tiny knife-like particles. We also recommend Scotchgaard® protection, which will absorb most of the punishment that would otherwise be inflicted on your carpet fibers. If you are wonder about cost, just remember that Scotchgaard® is the least expensive part of your carpet to replace, and it can be done quickly after a routine carpet cleaning with no additional disruption to your normal activities.

Commercial tile and grout cleaning in Denver Part 1 Why should tile and grout be professionally cleaned

This is Part 1 of our three-part blog on commercial tile and grout cleaning in Denver. This blog will focus on important reasons to have commercial tile and grout cleaned by a professional, even on floors thatare regularly maintained. Part 2 will focus on proper care of commercial stone tile and grout. Part 3 will highlight the importance of having commercial grout sealed.

Part 1: Why have your commercial buildings’ tile and grout professionally cleaned?

Walk into any commercial building in Denver, from a local coffee shop to the lobby of a multi-story building, and you will find a high-quality tile and grout floor. If you don’t see it in the front of the building,you will find itin the restroom. Why is this kind of flooring so popular?Tile flooring is highly desirable becausein comparison to carpet, it is more durable, easier for cleaning staff to maintain, and is, for the most part, more spot and spill resistant. These advantages all translate intocost savingsfor the maintenance budget.
During the recent Great Recession, manycommercial buildings stopped hiring outside contractors to do thorough tile and grout cleaning in an attempt to save money. Since dirty tile and grout can still seem presentable in a commercial setting, it was believed to be an easy way to eliminate asupposedly unnecessary service. This thinking has resulted in an epidemic of dirty commercial tile and grout and the contaminate-ladenindoor air associated with it. So why hire an outside contractor to clean tile and grout?


If you have been in Denverfor any amount of time, you have seen the brown cloud hangingover the city on windless days. What many people don’t realize is thatsame pollution, along with fungus, bacteria, cigarette smoke, dust anddust mites all end up inside buildings and settle onto the floors, including tile and grout. Simply mopping will not remove all of the contaminants from tile and grout, and we will return to this subject in a minute.
Each time someone walks across a floor, contaminants are kicked up and circulate through the air again, to be breathed in by everyone in the area. After that, the contaminantsare redistributed throughout the room, settling downon furniture and furnishings in a relentless layer ofunsightly dust. Over time, the once air-borne contaminantsbecomeembedded in the porous surfaces of tile and grout.In these tiny shelters bacteria and fungus mix with dust and moisture, finding the nutrientsthey need to flourish and release spores into the air,causing further air contamination.
A thorough deep cleaning of tile and grout is a sure way to reduce the indoorair pollutants in any commercial building. It removes any particles that could be kicked up, as well as the sticky contaminants that nurture fungus and bacteria. This is especially true in public restrooms, whereeveryday issues that affectcommercial tile and grout are compounded with thecontaminantsand high moisture issuesparticular to restrooms. A thorough cleaning of tile and grout will remove the bacteria and fungus found in bathroom tile and grout, and will improve the smell of the room.


Part of everyday cleaning for commercial buildings is to mop the hard floors. While this is a vital part of keeping the floors clean and improving the overall life of the tile and grout, it doesn’t effectively remove all of the dirt and contaminants from the floor. If you want to see a dramatic view of what is left behind from mopping, look in a commercial bathroom that has not had a professional cleaning in quite some time.
Look at the grout on the wall next to the floor, then compare the color of that grout to the color of the grout on the floor. They are the same original grout and should be the same color. But what you will see is a white or gray color grout on the wall, and probably a black grout on the floor. Why the difference? The dirt and contaminants on the floor are not removed by mopping alone. A thorough deep cleaning is needed to have a clean tile and grout floor.


Some companies sell a “be your own boss” tile and grout cleaning system which utilizes a mop, mop bucket and grout brush. These tools are marketed to people who are trying to get started in the tile and grout cleaning business. These systems simply do not work because they don’t thoroughly rinse and remove dirty water fromthe tile and grout. No matter how industriously hand tools are employed, they will leave a dirty, sticky residue on your tile and grout, and in those little crevices sheltering bacteria and fungus.
The method we recommend is a 4-part cleaning system:
  • Pre-treat areas with a quality emulsifier cleaning agent and a degreaser to release soils
  • Scrub the treated areas with a brushed buffer to physically engage and break up those deep, hard-to-reach soils
  • Thoroughly rinse with abundant hot water in a high pressure spinner tool, while simultaneously retrieving the water and the contaminants in it with a high-power vacuum.
  • Seal the grout to prevent staining and damage.
This is just the surface of hard floor care. Now that stone floors and tiles are the commercial flooring of choice, special products and cleaning techniques are needed to provide thorough cleaning and protection for these surfaces as well. Part 2 of this blog will discuss caring for stone and stone tile floors.
