There’s a common misconception out there that winter isn’t a great time to have your carpets professionally cleaned. That couldn’t be more wrong! In point of fact, it actually matters more to have your carpets professionally cleaned during winter, not less. Here’s why those professional carpet cleaning services make a big difference during winter:
Sure, you may think that spring and fall are the biggest times of year for airborne allergies, and you aren’t wrong. Despite that, someone with allergies may continue to feel the pain of seasonal stuffiness well into the winter. The reason this happens is because of something simple: we’re stuck indoors a lot more during the winter months. Throughout spring and fall, the weather is often nice enough to open the windows and get a fresh breeze flowing through the house. During winter, most of us tend to keep our homes sealed shut, meaning that there’s no good way to help clear out stale air and allergens lingering in the house.
Thanks to the winter holidays, this is also the time of year that many homes see a sharp upswing in foot traffic through the home. That’s a lot of extra dirt and grime being tracked across your carpets. You may notice that your carpets look dingier and grayer despite more frequent vacuumings because of this. Increased foot traffic means an uptick in gunk getting stuck in the carpet fibers, but it also means more pressure grinding that gunk deep enough that a vacuum is going to struggle to suction it up. The more grime caught in the fibers, the faster your carpet fibers are going to wear out, and the sooner your carpet will need to be replaced.
We don’t exactly get a lot of snow here in San Antonio, but that doesn’t mean we’re entirely exempt from winter weather. Those gray, soggy days can leave your carpets looking worse for the wear. Even more importantly, if you’re not keeping up with carpet care, the wet and grime are the perfect breeding ground that allows mildew and mold to grow, which can cause long-term damage and potential breathing issues. It’s especially important to do what you can to minimize the damp that reaches your carpets.
