If you think delaying carpet cleaning until spring arrives is the best plan, you may want to reconsider. There are several good reasons to have professional carpet cleaning done in your home during the winter, especially considering the longer you wait, the more ground in soil and stains become. Minor spots and stains from holiday entertain can become permanent without proper cleaning and fibers of your quality carpets and rugs can begin to break down and suffer damage. There are other reasons to have your carpets cleaned in the winter, and your home will thank you for the jumpstart on spring cleaning.
Come springtime, professional carpet cleaners become extremely busy as everyone sets up appointments to remove winter buildup. However, that buildup exists all through the winter, and when you call during the colder months, it’s easier to schedule professional carpet and rug cleaning. Waiting until the last minute before an important event to have your carpets cleaned is unwise as appointments may not be available for weeks. Having your carpets cleaned in the winter avoids the rush while freshening your home.
Despite the potential to track in wet and snow, your carpets may stay cleaner for a longer amount of time in the winter because they won’t accumulate as many allergens. During the warmer months, pollen, dust and airborne pollutants enter your home through open windows, and if you didn’t have your carpets cleaned in the fall, all of that contamination makes an unhealthy indoor environment. When you seal everything up for winter and keep doors and windows closed, everything stays trapped inside, and your carpet holds it all adding to the polluted air. A professional cleaning of the carpets and rugs in your home reduces and eliminates those spring and summer pollutants and makes it easier for you to breathe when you’re inside.
Faster carpet drying
It’s easy to believe that freshly cleaned carpets dry faster in the warmer weather, but that’s not always true. Carpets and rugs may dry slightly faster in the winter due to lower humidity that helps moisture evaporate more quickly. Professional carpet cleaners also have high-powered fans to help dry your carpets so you can enjoy your clean carpets and revel in the warmth and insulation they bring to cold winters.
