WINTER CARPET CLEANING
WHY?

Cold TemperatureCold Temperature

Winter carpet cleaning when the snow falls, the wind blows, and the temperature drops? Why?

You may think, why in the world would I open my nice comfy, warm home to the outside just to get my carpets cleaned? Why not just wait until Spring?

Well, there are some very good reasons why having your carpets professionally cleaned in the winter months, especially January, February, and March, is a great idea and makes perfect sense…

HERE ARE THE REASONS WHY...

NUMBER 1...
IT IS EASIER TO GET A CARPET CLEANING APPOINTMENT DURING THE WINTER MONTHS

Why wait for company to come or for a special event or even an emergency?

Schedule a professional carpet cleaning during the colder months before the springtime when companies become extremely busy. You can avoid the rush and keep your carpets at an optimal level of fresh and clean all winter.

Don’t forget, if there are spots and spills from holiday entertaining, these can turn into permanent stains the longer you wait to get your carpets professionally cleaned. The more soil builds up in the carpet, the harder it is to remove.

NUMBER 2...
YOU WILL SAVE MONEY

Most professional carpet cleaning companies (including ABC!) offer discounts to their customers during the slower winter months.

NUMBER 3...
HELP TO MAINTAIN A HEALTHIER INDOOR ENVIRONMENT

During the warmer months allergens such as pollen, dust, and other airborne pollutants enter your home through open doors and windows. These allergens become trapped in our homes when we seal them up to keep the cold out. Your carpet keeps those allergens trapped in its fibers but if the carpets are not cleaned regularly, they get saturated and the allergens are released into the air, negatively impacting indoor air quality.

When you have your carpets professionally cleaned in the winter, those allergens will be eliminated, leading to better indoor air quality so everyone will be able to breathe easier.

NUMBER 4...
IT IS NOT JUST OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES THAT DIRTY YOUR CARPET!

In the colder months, we tend to stay indoors more and allergens from cooking and heating sources can also be trapped in our homes.

NUMBER 5...
CARPETS CAN ACTUALLY DRY FASTER IN THE WINTER!

If you thought your carpets would not dry fast enough after a winter carpet cleaning, you will be pleased to know that carpets cleaned in the winter, in most cases, will actually dry faster!

This is because the humidity is lower, helping the moisture to evaporate more quickly. Warm humid air cannot hold as much moisture as dry air.

The professional carpet tech also brings high-powered fans into your home to help dry your carpets even faster to make them available for foot traffic sooner.

NUMBER 6...
EXTEND THE LIFE OF YOUR CARPETS

You may ask why clean carpets in the winter when they will just get dirty again come Spring? Because to extend the life of your carpets, it is important to keep them clean throughout the year. The longer soiling remains in the carpet, the more damage it can do to carpet fibers. Soil particles cut away at the carpet fibers, shortening its life expectancy.

STEPS TO KEEP YOUR JUST CLEANED CARPETS CLEANER LONGER

Fortunately, should you decide to have your carpets cleaned in the winter and not wait until Spring, there are several steps you can take to keep your just cleaned carpets cleaner longer...

  • Address tracked in dirt as soon as possible by vacuuming thoroughly and frequently, especially in traffic areas.
  • Remove spots or spills as promptly as possible.
  • Have a soil and stain protector applied after the cleaning to help keep those spots and spills from becoming permanent while making them easier to remove.
