Updated: Nov 14, 2019

'The floor is the face of your organisation,' says leading floor maintenance provider Progenta and how right they are!

A clean and welcoming business environment is vital for maintaining brand persona and positive client perception. Whatever sector you work in spots and stains are commonplace on carpets, especially with heavy footfall; but with the right regime they can be removed.

Common Stains Where possible, spills should be removed at the time of occurrence in order to prevent them from becoming permanent stains. Carrying out daily spot cleaning will also help to maintain a satisfactory carpet appearance between scheduled cleaning.

How to remove water-based stains Start by blotting the stain with a clean cloth or absorbent paper to remove any excess liquid. Next use a separate cloth moistened with cold water to remove the remainder of the stain, starting from the outside and working in. If the stain persists once dry, use a gentle cleaning agent to lift the stain such as Progenta’s Crystal Spot Remover.

Follow this process for tea, coffee, soda, wine, blood and urine spills.
