Your business should use every advantage possible to gain a competitive edge. So, have you looked at your carpet recently?
Consider this: Customers report higher rates of satisfaction when they’re in a clean space, and employees are happier and more productive. In fact, on the flip side, companies with less-than-clean facilities endure an almost 40% drop in customer satisfaction.
Make a Good Impression, Get Good Results
All of us can recall a dirty restaurant that left us with a bad impression — not to mention an unsettled stomach. The same can be true for hotels, financial firms, healthcare facilities, and several other places of business.
A business’s appearance also directly affects attracting and retaining employees. The state of your office’s carpet is a factor because it takes so much abuse. Cleanliness makes employees happier and more comfortable. What’s more, it directly relates to employee productivity.
In a controlled study, researchers found that improvements to indoor air quality boost employee productivity. Subjects performed routine office tasks, such as typing and simple arithmetic, while the researchers measured their performance for speed and accuracy.
Unbeknownst to them, the subjects sometimes were and sometimes weren’t exposed to a section of well-used, 20-year-old carpet taken from a building said to have poor indoor quality. Subjects’ performance improved by approximately 4% when the carpet was absent.
Protect People’s Health and the Environment
Carpet is known to release volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which contribute to employee health problems like headaches, nausea, and damage to the liver, kidney, and central nervous system. In turn, these health effects can lower productivity, as the previous study proved.
MilliCare’s carpet care system is designed with you and the environment in mind. Our dry carpet cleaning system removes up to 99% of pollutants and harmful VOCs.
Everything centers around our nontoxic dry polymer. Its unique properties allow it to absorb and remove dirt, dust, allergens, and other particles from deep inside your carpet.
We’re focused on the environment in other ways, too. For example, our cleaning system uses 99.5% less water. Not only does this save local and regional water supplies, but it also reduces your water bills.
Our system also keeps a carpet cleaner two to three times longer, extending its life and keeping it out of landfills. Consistent cleaning protects carpets from dirt that dulls and damages fibers. An estimated 79% of all soil consists of abrasive sand and particulate matter that can cut carpet fibers near their base, leading to a thinner pile and obvious wear patterns.
