Cleaning vs. Restoration: Is There a Difference?

Carpet cleaning using a vacuumHopefully, by now you realize the important of regular carpet maintenance and its value to your company. Carpet cleaning greatly enhances office health, employee morale, and your office’s image to visitors and customers.

But how do you know if your carpet is in need of cleaning or restoration?

This is a common question. Most people are not even aware that there is a difference, but there is. Understanding those differences will determine the long-term quality of your carpet.

Using the wrong methods to clean carpet spots and stains can potentially cause more damage. So, let’s finally explore the differences between carpet cleaning and carpet restoration.

Carpet Cleaning

Carpet cleaning—for residential and commercial—is usually necessary for carpets that have been generally maintained and professionally cleaned on a regular basis. Carpets may have heavy soiling in high-traffic areas and require spot or stain removal. They are typically rectified with 1 or 2 cleanings by professional carpet cleaning equipment and cleaning tools.

Carpet Restoration

Carpet restoration is typically required when the carpet has been significantly worn down because of foot traffic or it is experiencing some sort of defect—unraveling carpet fibers and bleached spots, for example. When carpet replacement is not in the budget, then carpet restoration is the next step.

 Why Both are Important

Whether you have spots and stains that come from pets, spills and regular foot traffic; or more significant wear and tear from loosened carpet fibers and other minor damage—regular carpet maintenance is the way to go.
