Winter Preparation and Keeping Your Carpets Clean in Chicago’s Gold Coast and Other Chicago Neighborhoods


    Autumn is here and it’s the perfect time for your business to begin preparing for winter. Start by checking one of those items to check off the list, and having your carpets professionally cleaned. ServiceMaster Restoration by Simons in Chicago’s Gold Coast is the only moniker to consider for this important task.

    Winter foot traffic can be quite destructive to your carpets. Salt for snow removal, chemicals for snow removal, water from melted snow… all are being tracked into your place of business and, without a deep cleaning, there they will stay. And we are all familiar with the Gold Coast’s, and the greater Chicago metropolitan area’s, winter’s snow.

    According to WITF Maintenance Tasks For Winter, “carpet is plush; it holds onto dirt and grime.” The chemicals and salt used for snow removal can be stressful on your company’s carpet. In a recent study done by the University of Maine, it was found that “all chloride salts contribute to corrosion.” Those same chemicals are being tracked through your company’s front door, and they could leave a potentially damaging mess if you do not take preventative steps. Along with the chemicals, there is the simple, yet messy, issue of snow. It’s pretty to look at, but not so pretty when it melts into the carpeting.  When this happens, the potential for the growth of mold is high.

    According to the EPA, exposure to mold can cause allergies, skin irritation, nasal congestion, and asthma, to name just a few health issues. Certainly, that isn’t the sort of business growth you want to have.
