Why All Hotel and Motel Owners Need a Professional Carpet Cleaning Partner

When was the last time you had your motel or hotel’s carpet professionally cleaned? It’s probably been a while – or maybe it hasn’t happened even once.

You may think that your carpets don’t need professional attention, but even if you have a dedicated cleaning staff, a deep clean of your establishment’s carpets is never a bad idea. 

Why Should I Have My Carpet Professionally Cleaned?


There are several reasons to get your carpets professionally cleaned: First and foremost, it leaves a good impression on guests. If people come into your hotel lobby or their room and they notice the carpet is dirty, let alone damp or even moldy, they will run the other way. And just because your carpet is a dark color doesn’t mean you can get away with leaving it longer. Detritus and dirt build up just the same, and mold doesn’t care what color your carpet is. 

Health Reasons

There are also health risks associated with dirty, dusty, and moldy carpets. Up to a certain point, carpets can trap dust, dirt, and other particles that would usually be kicked up on a hardwood floor. But if a carpet becomes saturated with these pollutants and they start floating around, it can cause allergies, colds, nosebleeds, and even respiratory problems if not addressed properly. That is not something you want your staff or your guests to deal with, even a little bit. 

And just because you can’t see mold doesn’t mean it isn’t there. Mold can hide very easily in carpets. And even if the carpet itself isn’t contaminated with mold, the padding beneath it may be affected.

How Often Should I Have My Carpets Professionally Cleaned?

McMahon recommends having your carpets professionally cleaned at least once a year. This will allow you to maintain a healthy, welcoming environment for your guests. 

Why Should I Have a Regular Carpet Cleaning Schedule? 

Having your carpet cleaned regularly helps you maintain the warranty on it. Most carpet warranties require a cleaning every 12 to 18 months. Furthermore, if you have a regular carpet cleaning schedule, you don’t have to scramble to get something on the books if there’s a big mess or unfortunate event of some kind. Your carpet will be on the docket to be deep-cleaned anyway. 

Even if you have your own cleaning or maintenance team, getting professional help with your carpet cleaning saves time, gives you access to specialized equipment, and helps keep your carpet warranty intact. When something like the health and comfort of your staff and guests is on the line, you want to ensure you’re doing your part to keep your establishment as clean and safe as possible for everyone who walks through your doors.
