Carpet Maintainence Experience Since 1979


 

GBS Group designs maintenance programs that address all aspects important to corporate management.  Beginning with the manufacturer's recommendations, we customize our programs to match the precise environmental conditions present throughout each facility. 

Carpet Cleaning and Repairs

Carpet is one of the most durable, functional and esthetically satisfying products that can be purchased. When properly cared for, carpet can last ten years or more. In the real world however, carpet is often the most abused product in a commercial facility.


The type of commercial environments where carpet is installed can vary greatly within each facility. Manufacturer warranties are designed to protect buyers against manufacturing defects. However, almost all premature wearing out of carpet is the result of improper maintenance or neglect.


 

In addition to the wear process, there are other caveats that should be considered. Carpet can be a reservoir for all the human and airborne pollutants normally present in a facility.  Left in the carpet, these pollutants adversely affect air quality. Studies have shown that the periodic removal of this debris will immediately improve a facility's air quality, thus in turn, reducing the number of sick days that employees take.
