Carpet cleaning in residential care homes: what to consider

A large care home located in the UK.

As the owner of a residential care home, you should know that investing in a professional carpet cleaning service is more than just a way to keep your building looking nice; it’s also a preventative measure in the fight against the spread of viruses.

The sanitation and regular cleaning of carpets and furniture in care homes is critical to ensuring that vulnerable residents live in an environment where germs cannot breed.

In this blog post, we will look further into the health benefits of investing in professional carpet cleaning services in residential care homes and our team at Paul Dyson Commercial Floor Care can help.

The benefits of professional carpet cleaning in residential care homes

It helps to reduce the spread of germs

Carpets are known to harbour viruses that are brought inside on shoes and clothing, leading to the spread of germs that can infect the most vulnerable residents. Professional carpet cleaning services employ advanced cleaning procedures and disinfection techniques to target and remove these viruses from your carpets, thereby contributing to a safer and healthier living environment in your facility.

It improves the air quality

In addition to bacteria, carpets can trap a range of contaminants, including dust, dirt, and allergens. These contaminants have the potential to build up and compromise the air quality of your care home, which can be extremely damaging to those with respiratory and circulatory conditions. Professional carpet cleaning will assist in the removal of these trapped contaminants, resulting in improved air quality and a better quality of life for residents.

It prevents the growth of mould

Carpets are notorious for retaining moisture which when left untreated, can lead to the growth of mould in your care home. Mould is especially dangerous to care home residents, as they are more likely to have compromised immune systems and are more vulnerable to the negative effects of hazardous airborne substances. Professional carpet cleaning services adopt processes that ensure your carpets are thoroughly dried, which in turn prevents mould growth and safeguards the health of your residents.

It extends the lifespan of your carpets

Carpet is an expensive investment in care homes, which is why regular professional carpet cleaning is crucial. Regular cleaning can help extend the life of carpets by removing any dirt and debris that can wear down the fibres and cause premature wear and tear. Not only will this help ensure your building’s carpets last longer, but it also help to save money in the long run by reducing the need for carpet replacements.

How Paul Dyson Commercial Floor Care can help

As a full-service cleaning company, we deliver our professional commercial carpet and floor cleaning service to care homes across the North East and beyond. We will tailor our services to provide your care home with a full clean and disinfection that works around both you and your residents.

We can complete the following services:

Fogging and sanitising

We can provide a fogging and sanitising deep cleaning service to ensure the safety of your vulnerable residents. We will use industry-leading cleaner and sanitiser that rapidly kills harmful bacteria, viruses and fungi.

Our specialist fogging machines produce a fine mist of disinfectant which can reach over 10 metres, moving with the airflow and settling on all surrounding surfaces. This disinfectant continues to tackle viruses and bacteria that can be found in large buildings, such as care homes, for up to 28 days.

Deep carpet cleaning

We can also complete a full deep clean of the carpet throughout your entire care home. As part of this service, we use industry-approved, special low-moisture cleaning products and equipment to lift dirt and stains within the fibre of your carpets. This not only ensures a deeper clean but also works as an extra measure to protect your building from the foot-spread of deadly viruses that could be trapped inside of the fibre.

Upholstery cleaning 

As well as carpets, we also offer upholstery cleaning solutions to residential care homes. Like carpets, your soft furnishings and curtains will inevitably collect dust, dirt and other contaminants over time. Our specialist equipment and techniques are designed to break down and remove tough stains and ground-in dirt, so you can be confident that we’ll have the furniture in your care home looking healthy and free from contaminants in no time.
