Many homeowners postpone carpet cleaning from about November through March, and even as late as April in parts of the country. They just think it’s best to wait till winter is over and have it done in the spring. Plus, with the hustle and bustle of the winter season, carpet cleaning is the last thing on their mind. Carpet cleaning should not be postponed in the winter months. It’s actually beneficial to clean them during this time.
Does Carpet Cleaning Reduce Allergens?
Spring and fall are peak times for allergens, but we can suffer from the pain of allergies during winter too. No one wants that! It happens because we’re stuck inside a lot more during the winter and the windows are shut tight, allowing allergens to become trapped in our homes. Whereas spring and fall, the weather is nice enough to open the windows to get a fresh breeze flowing through to take those allergens out.
Restore High Traffic Carpet
Winter holidays mean more foot traffic as friends and family come calling. That means extra dirt and grime getting tracked onto our carpets. Even if you vacuum more often you may still notice that your carpets are getting dingier. Dirt and grime act like mini daggers that cut away at carpet fibers, causing them to wear out the fibers faster and have you replacing them sooner than anticipated. The cost of cleaning will pay off when you can keep your carpets longer. Professional carpet cleaning will remove everything your vacuum cleaner can’t.
Remove Mold from Carpet
Even if you don’t see a lot of snow where you live doesn’t mean you’re not completely exempt from winter weather and the effect it can have on your carpets. Days that are soggy and gray can leave your carpets looking less than stellar. If you don’t take care of your carpets the way you should, the wet and grime can create the perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew to grow. This will not only cause health issues but can cause long-term damage to your carpets. It’s always good to minimize the damp that reaches your carpet as much as you can.
Carpet Cleaning Improves Indoor Air Quality
We all know the importance of changing HVAC air filters every month. It’s good for the system and it’s good for your carpets too. Fresh filters are more efficient at trapping dust and other particulates, so they don’t end up blown through your home and onto your carpets. You will notice less dust in your vacuum cleaner and cleaner carpets when air filters are replaced regularly..
