There are some things about the summer that you wish could last forever. The weather is certainly high on the list for most people, while for some it might be the free time to go on vacation or have family bonding activities. One thing is for sure though, the dirt, dust and allergens left on your carpets from busy feet during the season are certainly one thing you don’t want to last forever. Just so you know, summer is the most ideal time of year to get your carpets deep cleaned and we have outlined the top 5 reasons why this is so below.
Back to back sunny weather seasons (spring and summer) might mean you spent a lot of time over the past months with windows open, patio doors open, shades drawn, etc. While these were good for letting some sunlight and fresh air in, they also unfortunately allowed pollen and other allergens to get inside and get trapped in your home’s soft surfaces like carpet, rugs and couches. The more you walk on your pollen filled carpets, the more pollen is reintroduced back into your indoor air, which causes lots of sneezing and sniffling, especially for those with allergies.
Summer is known for being a typical beach vacation time, especially here in North Carolina. Unfortunately, one of the biggest drawbacks to the beach is the sand that gets everywhere. No matter how hard you try, you’re sure to bring some of the beach sand back home with you and because sand particles are so tiny, they end up right in your carpets. Aside from the slightly grainy feeling you might get from walking on sand filled carpets, sand might actually damage your carpet fibers so getting the sand out is a win-win for all.
Kids are out of school and with football season, 4th july and all the other social holidays, you’re sure to be doing quite a bit of entertaining. Summer is generally known as the time of year when dirt and mud get tracked into the house. If you have kids, pets, if you like to garden or if you host a lot of watch parties/barbecues/dinners, etc, then you know your carpets have been experiencing the world of wear and tear and that it’s time to show them a little TLC. A deep clean will certainly help put some life back into your carpets while getting rid of a lot of those unwanted particles.
Getting The House Ready For The Market
We all know that summer is the peak moving season and if you’re planning to put your house up on the market this summer, now is a great time to deep clean the carpets. Clean carpets can help raise the value of your home and make it more desirable. In the same vein, if you’re moving into a new home, it might be a good idea to get the carpets deep cleaned before you move in to give yourself a nice fresh start.
It’s Just Time For A Deep Clean
Carpet manufacturers today recommend your carpets be cleaned every 12-18 months which will keep your carpets looking new, healthy and clean for many years of enjoyment.
