Toronto, Canada (PRWEB), April 10, 2015 – Clean-Slate Janitorial Services (www.Clean-Slate.ca) a Greater Toronto Area-based professional cleaning company that specializes in commercial office cleaning, is issuing its expert advice on why carpet is the preferred flooring solution in long-term care facilities, especially during the more active spring season.
“Carpets are one of those things people either love or hate,” says Sam Panousis, owner and operator of Clean-Slate Janitorial Services. “It’s safe to assume that many people who don’t like carpets don’t have all the information on how they can be beneficial.”
According to Panousis, one place that would greatly benefit from carpets is a long-term care facility, especially during the spring, when the weather is neither too hot nor too cold for seniors and they are subsequently more active. Installing carpets throughout the majority of the facility can have some major benefits, the primary one being that they provide additional safety.
“Carpets have softer surfaces, which can play a role in accident prevention,” he adds. “Slips and falls are a major issue with people who stay in these facilities and not only can a carpet soften the blow, but it also provides better traction than tiles, preventing slip and falls from occurring.”
Panousis explains that the quiet factor is another reason long-term care facilities should consider installing carpet. This matters because loved ones invest a lot of money for their parents or grandparents to live comfortably, and part of that comfort is quiet. With the amount of people walking back and forth throughout the day, it can be a bit disturbing if they are walking on a hard surface, but carpet eliminates that noise and adds to the peacefulness of the living experience.
“Lastly, another benefit of carpet is the improvement it brings to indoor air quality,” Panousis concludes. “Many people believe carpet adds dust, but it actually absorbs dust and particles that are airborne.”
