When Should You Get Your Carpets Cleaned?

When you see dirt and stains or notice not-so-great smells, you know it’s time to clean your carpet. But what if you want to keep it clean more proactively; is there a certain time of year you should do it? Today we’re going to talk about when you should get your carpets professionally cleaned throughout the year. 

We recommend regular cleaning to ensure your carpets stay looking and feeling their best. At least once a year will prevent damage from ground-in dirt and prolong the life of your carpets. But if you have pets, kids, or a lot of traffic in your home, you may need to have your carpets cleaned more often. Each season brings new challenges for clean homes.

Which season or seasons should you get your carpets cleaned? Here’s what you need to know to decide:

Spring Cleaning

Spring is the perfect time to get your carpets professionally cleaned. After a long winter of tracked-in dirt, mud, and snow, your carpets are likely in need of some serious attention. Spring cleaning provides an opportunity to get your home ready for the warmer weather and to freshen up your carpets after months of being cooped up. During spring cleaning, we recommend deep cleaning your carpets to remove any built-up dirt and grime that may have accumulated during the winter months.

Summer Cleaning

Summer is another great time to get your carpets professionally cleaned. With the kids home from school and increased outdoor activities, your carpets can become dirtier and need more care to stay clean. Increased humidity levels during the summer months can also cause carpets to develop mold and mildew, leading to unpleasant odors and even potential health hazards. A thorough carpet cleaning during the summer can help eliminate these issues and keep your home looking and smelling fresh.

Fall Cleaning

Fall is the season of shedding. Trees lose their leaves, pets lose their fur, and people start to bring the outside in. All of these factors can take a toll on your carpets. It’s important to have your carpets professionally cleaned in the fall to remove any accumulated dirt, debris, and allergens. This cleaning will not only improve the look and feel of your carpets, but it can also help reduce the number of allergens present in your home as we prepare for the winter months ahead.

Winter Cleaning

In winter, we want to stay cozy and comfortable, so we spend most of our time indoors. This also means our carpets are getting more use and abuse. Not only are we tracking in snow and salt from outside, but we’re also more likely to spill hot drinks or food. Additionally, winter is also the season of cold and flu, and carpets can become a breeding ground for germs and bacteria. Getting your carpets professionally cleaned during the winter months can help reduce the spread of germs and bacteria and can also improve the overall health of your home.
