Commercial Carpet Cleaning

Commercial establishment, such as offices, hotels, restaurants & retail stores

Commercial establishments, such as offices, hotels, restaurants, and retail stores, often feature extensive carpeted areas that endure heavy foot traffic.

The maintenance and cleanliness of these carpets are critical not only for appearances but also for the health and safety of employees and customers. Commercial carpet cleaning is a systematic process designed to address the unique challenges faced in high-traffic environments.

Carpet cleaning companies in NZ usually set their carpet cleaning price based on the number of rooms and lounges for residential customers. And fees are charged by square metres for commercial open spaces like offices, warehouses, or schools.

Our commercial cleaning charges are $3 per sqm, and our minimum charges are $125 Plus GST.

Our Commercial Carpet Cleaning Process

The process of commercial carpet cleaning starts with a thorough assessment of the carpeted area. This evaluation helps determine the extent of soiling, the types of stains present, and any specific cleaning requirements. Commercial carpet cleaning companies often work during non-business hours to minimise disruptions.
Before cleaning
The carpet is typically vacuumed to remove loose dirt and debris. This step is essential for improving the effectiveness of the cleaning process.
Similar to residential carpet cleaning
There are different methods employed for commercial carpet cleaning. Hot water extraction, encapsulation cleaning, and bonnet cleaning are among the most common methods.
Downspout Cleaning
We pay equal attention to your downspouts, ensuring proper water drainage. If necessary, we disassemble and clean the downspouts to eliminate any blockages.
Hot water extraction
Hot water extraction, or steam cleaning, is widely used in commercial settings as it can effectively deep clean and remove stubborn stains. It involves the injection of hot water and cleaning solutions into the carpet, followed by powerful extraction.
Encapsulation cleaning
Encapsulation cleaning is a low-moisture method where a specialised cleaning solution is applied to the carpet, creating crystals that encapsulate dirt and are then vacuumed away.
Bonnet cleaning
Bonnet cleaning involves using a rotary machine with a cleaning pad soaked in a cleaning solution. It's effective for routine maintenance but may not provide deep cleaning.

After the cleaning process, carpets are left to dry thoroughly. In commercial settings, quick drying is essential to avoid business disruptions.

Benefits of Commercial Carpet Cleaning

Commercial carpet cleaning offers a multitude of benefits for businesses and organisations. Maintaining clean and well-maintained carpets is not only essential for appearances but also for the health and well-being of employees and customers. Here are some of the key benefits of commercial carpet cleaning:

Improved Indoor Air Quality

Carpets can trap airborne pollutants, allergens, and dust particles over time. Commercial carpet cleaning removes these contaminants, contributing to better indoor air quality. This, in turn, can lead to a healthier work environment and reduced allergy symptoms among employees and customers.

Enhanced Appearance

Regular carpet cleaning revitalises the appearance of carpets by removing stains, dirt, and grime. Clean, well-maintained carpets create a positive first impression for visitors and clients, reflecting positively on your business.

Prolongs Carpet Life

Professional carpet cleaning can extend the life of your carpets by removing abrasive particles and preventing premature wear and tear. This can save your business money in the long run, as replacing carpets is a significant expense.

Eliminates Odours

Carpets can trap odors from spills, food, and other sources. Commercial carpet cleaning effectively removes these odors, leaving your workspace smelling fresh and clean.

Maintains Warranty

Many carpet manufacturers require regular professional cleaning to maintain the warranty on their products. Compliance with these requirements ensures that you can take advantage of any warranty claims if necessary.

Reduces the Spread of Illness

In commercial settings, bacteria and germs can thrive in carpets, potentially leading to the spread of illnesses among employees and customers. Thorough cleaning and sanitisation of carpets help reduce the risk of illness transmission.

Enhances Safety

Clean carpets are less likely to pose tripping hazards. Removing debris and stains from carpets ensures a safer environment for everyone.

Boosts Employee Morale

A clean and well-maintained workspace can boost employee morale and productivity. Employees are likely to feel more valued and motivated in a clean environment.

Saves Time

Professional commercial carpet cleaning services have the equipment and expertise to efficiently clean large carpeted areas. This saves your business time and allows employees to focus on their core tasks.

Eco-Friendly Options

Many professional carpet cleaning companies offer eco-friendly cleaning solutions and methods, reducing your business's environmental footprint.


Regular commercial carpet cleaning can be a cost-effective investment in the long term. It helps prevent the need for premature carpet replacement, which can be a significant expense.

Compliance with Regulations

In some industries, there are regulations and standards regarding cleanliness and hygiene. Regular carpet cleaning helps your business stay compliant with these regulations and avoid potential fines or penalties.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about our Commercial Carpet Cleaning Service:

Professional commercial carpet cleaning is crucial because it helps maintain a clean and healthy work environment, extends the life of carpets, improves indoor air quality, and enhances the overall appearance of your business space.
The frequency of commercial carpet cleaning depends on various factors, including foot traffic, the type of business, and the level of soiling. Generally, it's recommended to clean high-traffic areas every 3 to 6 months and less frequently used areas every 12 to 18 months.
While rental carpet cleaning machines are available, they often lack the power and efficiency of professional equipment. Professional cleaners have the expertise, specialised tools, and commercial-grade cleaning solutions to achieve a thorough and effective clean.
Drying times can vary depending on factors like humidity, ventilation, and the cleaning method used. In general, commercial carpets can take anywhere from 4 to 24 hours to dry completely.
It's advisable to move light and easily movable items before the cleaning appointment. However, many commercial carpet cleaning companies offer furniture moving services for larger or heavier items as part of their package.
While professional cleaning can effectively remove many stains, some stains, especially those that have set for a long time, may be more challenging to eliminate completely. The success of stain removal depends on the type of stain and the carpet's material.
To maintain commercial carpets between cleanings, encourage employees to promptly clean up spills, use walk-off mats at entrances to trap dirt, and vacuum regularly. Implementing a routine maintenance plan can extend the time between professional cleanings.
