Carpets take a beating during the summer, as spending more time outside and summer vacation means heavier foot traffic. So, by the end of the season, your carpet will be filled with dirt, grime, bad smells, dust and other allergens. Fortunately, the fall is the perfect time to clean up after your summer activities and have your carpet professionally cleaned. Having your carpet cleaned in early fall will help prepare your home for the chaos of the holidays and winter traffic. Below are three reasons why you should have your carpet cleaned this fall.
Prepares Your Home for Fall and Winter Traffic
During the colder months, more time is spent indoors. This means you and your family will be home more often. Plus, you’ll most likely receive more guests than usual, especially with the upcoming holiday season. Having your carpet cleaned early in the fall will help improve the air quality, cleanliness and comfort level of your home. So, you can stay in or invite guests in without having to worry about dirty, smelly or unsightly carpet.
Gets Rid of Health Hazards
Dirty carpeting could pose a health risk to you and your family. Carpet fibres are breeding grounds for germs. They typically harbour dirt, grime, dust, dander, bacteria, allergens and pollutants of all types. These germs could cause serious infections. Plus, mold or other fungi could be lurking in your carpet, waiting to make you sick. Particularly, a mold infestation could cause serious health issues, including respiratory illnesses, exacerbation of pre-existing conditions (i.e. asthma), allergies, sinus infections, chronic headaches and more. If you’re looking for someone specialized to perform your carpet cleaning, Saskatoon experts like us are equipped to clean your carpet and remove mold from your home.
Protects Your Carpet Warranty
Believe it or not, most carpet warranties require customers to have their products professionally cleaned at least once a year by a licensed and certified cleaning service. This means you can’t rent equipment and attempt to clean it yourself or hire someone who isn’t certified or doesn’t use certified equipment and systems. A carpet’s warranty can also become void if you wait longer than 18 months to have it cleaned. However, it’s recommended that you get a professional cleaning twice a year – once in the spring and once in the fall. This recommendation is even more evidence that the fall is a great time to have your carpets cleaned.
