The 80/20 rule says 80% of your time and resources should be spent on 20% of your carpet: the carpet in entryways, lobbies and main traffic lanes.
It just makes sense – High-traffic areas of carpeting require more frequent cleaning than low-traffic areas.
Strategically cleaning the carpet in entryways, lobbies and main traffic lanes according to your facility traffic patterns will keep soil from migrating into the rest of the building.
Following the 80/20 Rule will save on labor and ensure the longevity of your flooring throughout your facility.
