With the holiday season in full swing many homeowners may think about putting off carpet cleaning until after the festivities are over.
The truth is that if you have soiling or spots that are clearly visible then it’s much better have your carpets cleaned now, even if you can’t clean all the areas because of decorations.
Spots, especially from liquid spills and pets, can permanently damage carpet fibres, often making them weaker, and changing the color. The same is true for heavily trafficked areas that are showing soiling from footwear. This can hide fibre-destroying dirt and grit that cut at the tufts every time it’s walked on.
Clean rugs, upholstery and carpets are also healthier and reduce the spread of germs.
Prompt and frequent cleaning performed by a competent well-trained carpet cleaning technician can correct these problems and help make your cleaning experience as convenient as possible. They can work safely around some of the heavy furniture that can’t be easily moved right now and will have temporary foil or foam blocks to protect the furniture that is moved from damage by the damp carpet while it dries. And, even in winter, drying time for steam-cleaned carpets should always be only a few hours when done properly. The best cleaners will know how to keep the cooler outside air at bay during the cleaning process, too.
Scheduling your rug, carpet or upholstery cleaning at this time of year is easy and cleaning of a few rooms or a sofa set takes less than a couple of hours.
You will enjoy your home more this holiday season knowing that the carpets, rugs and upholstery feel and look great and your family and guests will appreciate it, too.
