Make Your Carpet Last With Regular Professional Cleaning

If you’re considering having your office’s carpet cleaned, you may wonder if it’s worth the investment to have professionals do the job. Clean-Slate Janitorial Services, the leading provider of professional carpet cleaning in Toronto, tells their clients that regular, deep cleaning of their carpets not only keeps their office looking its best, but also cuts down on potential health issues.

Winter may be long over, but your employees will doubtlessly bring in plenty of allergens, such as dust and pollen, which in turn can become trapped in your carpet. During hot weather, offices typically become sealed environments when air conditioning is switched on and air is continually re-circulated. A professional carpet cleaning in Toronto will keep your office free of allergens so your employees with allergies won’t have to suffer.

Most carpets are made up of synthetic fibres such as nylon, olefin, and polyester, and as a result, must be maintained regularly in order to retain their appearance. Replacing your carpet is expensive and time-consuming; that’s why professional carpet cleaning in Toronto will ensure that your carpet lasts for years to come.

Your carpet may look dull due to multiple spills and everyday foot traffic, especially in a high-traffic area. Foreign material can build up and also cause your carpet to look dull and dingy as well as build up and cause scratches to the fibres of the carpet, leading to irreparable damage. This can be prevented by regular professional carpet cleaning; in Toronto, Clean-Slate Janitorial Services will perform a thorough cleaning at an affordable price.

If you’re in the GTA and have just had a new carpet installed in your office, we recommend professional carpet cleaning in Toronto within the first year of having it installed, especially at the end of the winter or halfway through so any foreign material doesn’t have a chance to set in.

Even if you’ve had the same carpet for several years, we still recommend a cleaning to maintain its appearance. We employ the best cleaners in the business to provide professional carpet cleaning in Toronto. Our cleaning equipment will leave your carpet looking as good as new.

At Clean-Slate Janitorial Services, we, as business owners ourselves, realize that operating budgets can be tight. That’s why we provide our clients with a thorough cleaning that won’t break our office’s operating budget. Call us today to book our carpet cleaning services!

Clean-Slate Janitorial Services Urges Offices and Restaurants to Take Proactive Approach to Fruit Flies and Insects as Humid Toronto Weather Rolls In

Toronto, Canada (PRWEB), June 19, 2014 – Clean-Slate Janitorial Services (www.Clean-Slate.ca), a Greater Toronto Area-based professional cleaning company that specializes in commercial office cleaning, retail maintenance, floor restoration, carpet cleaning, and construction site cleanup, is urging businesses to take a proactive approach to infestation of fruit flies and other insects as warm, humid weather settles over Toronto. The company is also commenting on why it’s important to use a professional cleaning company that uses eco-friendly cleaning products.

“The cold winter weather may be long gone, but summers in Toronto can bring a whole new headache for many businesses,” says Sam Panousis, owner and operator of Clean-Slate Janitorial Services. “In fact, the humid and rainy weather conditions have made for perfect breeding conditions for fruit flies and other annoying insects in the Greater Toronto Area.”

Panousis explains that fruit flies in particular are a major nuisance in restaurants, bars, grocery stores, and offices. Not only are they a nuisance, but judging by all the negative online reviews levelled at many Toronto area restaurants, fruit flies and other annoying insects have the potential to destroy a business’ brand and reputation.

Fruit flies are tiny, winged insects that are three millimetres in length and pale brown in colour, with large, red eyes. While fruit flies prefer the outdoors during the warmer months, they are attracted indoors by decomposing fruits and vegetables and fermenting liquid in rotting garbage as it cooks in the summer heat. Fruit flies can enter an office or restaurant through an open door, and even on food brought in by employees.

“Fruit flies are harmless to humans, but they do frequent and lay eggs in unsanitary areas, and there is evidence to suggest fruit flies can carry pathogenic bacteria. It also doesn’t take long for a seemingly small issue with fruit flies to turn into a big one,” Panousis observes. “Depositing eggs into decaying fruit, vegetables, and other foods, female fruit flies can lay about 500 eggs in their approximately two-week lifespan. And the gestation period is short; fruit flies can grow from an egg to an adult in less than one week.”

To eliminate and reduce the risk of unsightly, unsanitary fruit flies and other insects from invading the office, restaurant, or other commercial property, Panousis states that it’s important to hire a janitorial services company that uses commercial-strength, eco-friendly cleaning products.

“Green cleaning products have the same cleaning power, but without the harmful side effects. Failing to use green cleaning products means unnecessarily exposing employees and customers to chemicals commonly found in both conventional cleaning and pest control products,” he concludes. “It doesn’t matter if fruit flies or other insects have infested an office, restaurant, or commercial or industrial property; a clean work environment makes a lasting impression and is important for maintaining a healthy, hygienic workspace.”

Clean-Slate Janitorial Services Weighs in on Recent Cold Snap and Announces Top Way to Neutralize Carpet Damage, Corrosion, and Mould from Road Salt

Toronto, Canada (PRWEB), January 29, 2014 – Clean-Slate Janitorial Services (www.Clean-Slate.ca), a Greater Toronto Area-based professional cleaning company that specializes in commercial office cleaning, retail maintenance, floor restoration, carpet cleaning, and construction site cleanup, is weighing in on the recent cold snap and announcing its top strategy for neutralizing salt damage and corrosion on carpets and floors.

“An army of salt trucks have been hitting the streets and highways in the Greater Toronto Area to combat the recent cold snap and accumulating snow. While road salt helps drivers because it melts snow and ice, it can wreak havoc on office carpets and floors,” says Sam Panousis, owner and operator of Clean-Slate Janitorial Services. “In fact, road salt is one of the biggest reasons why office carpets get stained and deteriorate over the winter months.”

According to the City of Toronto, the annual demand for salt used to de-ice roads and sidewalks averages about 125,000 tonnes, though during the record snowfall during the winter of 2007–2008, the City of Toronto used 195,600 tonnes of ice. The city also budgets for around 14,000 tonnes of sand annually. When the frigid temperatures get too low, like they have this winter, road salt becomes ineffective—that’s when the City of Toronto switches gear and uses beet juice, which is more environmentally friendly than road salt, but can still stain carpets. (Source: “2010 BUDGET BRIEFING NOTE, Winter Maintenance – Road Salt Usage and Expenditures,” City of Toronto web site, March 9, 2010; www.toronto.ca/budget2010/pdf/briefingnote_2010_ts_wintermain_rsue.pdf.)

“No matter how careful people are, road salt gets tracked onto office and retail carpets. And when the carpet dries, businesses are left with unsightly salt stains, the heaviest build-ups appearing white and crusty,” Panousis explains. “What most people don’t know is that road salt has a high alkaline content and, if left for a period of time, can break down the fibres, permanently damaging or destroying the carpet.”

On top of road salt, he says, wet snow on office and retail carpets in the Greater Toronto Area can turn into mould, which can lead to a musty smell. Health problems associated with mould include allergies, asthma, and hypersensitivity pneumonitis.

To prevent road salt damage and mould, the office and retail carpet cleaning experts at Clean-Slate Janitorial Services recommend hiring a professional carpet cleaning company to have road salt stains removed before they cause costly damage.

“It can be extremely difficult to effectively clean a carpet soaked with road salt without the proper equipment,” Panousis adds. “At Clean-Slate Janitorial Services, our winter rinse floor solution neutralizes salt and other contaminants that accumulate on carpets during the winter. Our winter cleaning solution also cleans hard surface flooring. Road salt can strip off urethane coating and tile floor surfaces, leaving them vulnerable to damage from moisture, dirt, and scuffs.”
