Cleaning and Drying Carpets In The Winter

Have you looked at your carpets and thought they really need a good cleaning? Then you thought, it’s getting colder out and now is a terrible time to clean them? Turns out that winter may not be a bad time to clean and dry them. It is actually the perfect time to do so. 

Winter is the time when carpets really take a beating with all the dirt and mud and moisture that comes in on the bottom of your shoes and blows through the door when you open it. You may also be entertaining people in your home as the holidays close in on us. 

Items to Note

There are some things you want to keep in mind about cleaning and drying your carpet in the winter. It’s a busy time of year for everyone, including carpet cleaning companies. Make sure you plan and call your selected cleaning company earlier than you think you should.

As counter-intuitive as it seems your carpets inside will dry faster when the weather outside is cold. Since it’s cold and dry outside, the heat inside will absorb the moisture from the wet carpet much faster. Believe it, or not, the drying time will likely be half of what you expect. This also prevents mold and bacteria from growing. 

Keeping your carpets clean and dry will improve the quality of the air you’re breathing inside your house. Most of us will spend the most time in our houses during the winter season. While you’re in your house, any dirt, dust, and bacteria from your dirty carpet are getting moved around your house. Cleaning your carpet is the best way to remove those contaminants from the air you’re breathing. 

Keep in mind that it is possible to over steam but over cleaning your carpet. It needs deep cleaning only once or twice a year. Don’t delay in getting your carpets clean today.
