How Often Should Office Carpets Be Professionally Cleaned?

If it’s been a while since your office carpets have been professionally cleaned, you’ve come to the right place.

The focus of this article will be on identifying how often your carpets should be professionally cleaned in a corporate environment, the factors that influence this and when to call Sun Dry for expert assistance.

So How Often Should Office Carpets Be Cleaned Professionally?

Generally speaking, office carpet should be cleaned once every six months to a year. However, much like residential carpet cleaning, how often you should invest in such services depends on a number of factors.

We Have a Regular Cleaner. Do We Need Additional Professional Corporate Carpet Cleaning? 

You may think that because you have chosen to employ a professional cleaner to service your offices, you don’t necessarily need an additional professional carpet cleaner. But this isn’t always the case.

Unless your cleaner is trained in professional carpet cleaning for commercial spaces (and has the equipment to get the job done), it’s good practice to arrange for a professional carpet cleaning service (such as that we offer at Sun Dry).

Factors that Influence How Often You Should Organise Professional Corporate Carpet Cleaning

As mentioned above, there are several factors that influence how often you should arrange for the services of a professional carpet cleaner. In this section, we’ll go through them.

Type of Business & Professional Image

The type of business you are running and the image you want to portray to your staff and/or customers is something you want to take into consideration when deciding how often to have a professional carpet cleaning service come in. 

How Your Premises is Used

How your premises are used is another thing you need to think about. For instance, if it’s just you and one or two other people in your office, you may be able to get away with putting off your service for eight months (or maybe even longer).

But if you have a fairly large team, with tradies and customers in and out from the time you open the doors to closing, it might be something you need more often.

Office Cleaning

How often does your weekly professional cleaner vacuum the carpet? How do they manage stains and other issues? This is something that will also influence how often your corporate carpet cleaning should be done.

Style & Colour of Carpet

The style and colour of your carpet is also a factor you need to take into account when it comes to how often your carpet should be cleaned. For instance, if you’ve chosen a delicate carpet in a lighter colour (such as white or cream), you should have a service more often than if you have a darker, more durable carpet.

Age & Quality

The age of your carpet and whether it is good quality is another thing that will influence how often you should schedule corporate carpet cleaning. Think about this when organising your appointments.


When we talk about carpet in a commercial setting and how often it needs to be professionally cleaned, not only do you have to consider the allergies (or potential allergies) of your current staff members, but also any future staff members as well as your customers and clients.

If you work in an industry where customers and clients are more likely to use or visit your office on a regular basis (and particularly if they are vulnerable to illness, dust and other issues), it’s good practice to have a professional carpet cleaner frequently.
