Why you should have your floors professionally cleaned

Floors last longer and look better with proper cleaning and maintenance. Keep your family safe and your customers happy with DryTech’s residential and commercial cleaning services. For most flooring, either residential or commercial, we recommend a professional clean every six to 12 months. Proper deep cleaning prolongs the life of your floors and reduces the need for complete renovations.

Why you should have your floors professionally cleaned

There are several reasons why you need professional cleaning for your floors.  Here are some of them:

  • To reduce risk of flu in winter
  • To sanitise the floors which is important to prevent spread of coronavirus and other harmful viruses
  • To remove sand or dirt, which wears down the floor’s surface.
  • To remove stains and soiled areas.
  • To prevent injuries such as slips, trips and falls.
  • To improve sanitation, for example, kitchens, hospitals or grocery stores.
  • To remove allergens, for example, day-care centres, office buildings, and in your home.
  • To maintain the natural aesthetic of the floor’s material.
  • To prolong the lifespan of the floor.
  • To avoid costly remodels and unnecessary floor damage.
  • To get your bond deposit back after your lease has expired.
  • To impress customers
  • To impress home buyers or renters (if you are selling or renting your property)

When to Get Floors Professionally Cleaned

Here are key indicators based on flooring types that it may be time to have your floors professionally cleaned.


For commercial carpet cleaning, it is recommended that you get carpets professionally cleaned every six months if there is significant traffic or increased soiling. If this Is not the case once a year should suffice. Residential carpet cleaning should be performed once a year. Carpet cleaning usually involves shampooing and spot treatments.

Tile and Grout

Tile and grout perform best when cleaned yearly. Yearly tile and grout cleaning dramatically extend the look and durability of the grout and tile. This is especially true in humid climates or areas with heavy usage. Grout is porous and needs specialized products to remove tough stains.


How hardwood flooring is cleaned will depend on the wood’s treatment or coating. Although durable, hardwood floors can scratch from grit, furniture and heavy foot traffic. Wood flooring can be professionally cleaned every six to 12 months, depending on traffic and usage. With proper professional cleaning, hardwood can last a lifetime.


Laminate, although durable, also needs to be professionally cleaned. Scuff marks from shoes and other tricky stains need specialty products and techniques to be removed. Never clean laminate with water or steam; it can warp and buckle.

Slate, Marble or Flagstone

Due to the porous nature of these stones, they will need to be professionally cleaned and sealed. If you have recently moved into a new building or home, it is a good idea to have the stone floors professionally cleaned. It is best to leave these sensitive stones to the professionals.


Skid marks, oil and other stains can mark concrete floors. Get your high shine back with specialized concrete cleaning. If properly sealed, concrete may not need to be cleaned yearly. However, most concrete floors in commercial or industrial spaces get heavy usage which makes yearly cleaning necessary.

In short, you should have your flooring professionally cleaned at least once per year. However, if you have a large spill, increased trips or falls, increased allergic reactions or notice staining, you should contact DryTech Carpet Cleaning to discuss professional cleaning for your office, factory or home.  It is always best to err on the side of caution when safety, sanitation or family are concerned.

How to choose a professional floor cleaning company Sydney

Here are seven tips to choose the best professional cleaning company for your business or residential flooring:

Choose a company with experience

Experience is important particularly if you have expensive carpets and rugs at home or in the office.

Choose an Australian accredited company

Check to ensure the company you are hiring has Australian cleaning standards.  Australia’s cleaning industry has very strict guidelines and a company that follows these standards is more likely to do an effective floor cleaning job.

Choose a company with qualified and experienced cleaners

Check to ensure that the company is hiring trained staff with experience.  Steam cleaning or stain removal are specialised task.  A company with professionally trained and qualified staff is less likely to make mistakes that can damage your carpets or flooring.

Compare prices

Professional floor cleaning is competitive in Sydney. Obtain quotations from three companies and compare the services they are offering for the price they have quoted you.  Check to ensure there are no hidden fees like transportation and so forth.

Check flexibility

The professional cleaning company must be flexible and should be able to accommodate your schedule.  One of the reasons for using a professional cleaning company is to save you time.   Most commercial cleaners in Sydney like DryTech Commercial Cleaning can send a team to your business premises after hours or on weekends.

Read reviews

Customer reviews on website and social media platforms will give you a good indication of how good the commercial cleaning company is.  Make sure to read their ratings and reviews before you shortlist the company.
