When is the Best Time of the Year to Get My Carpets Cleaned?

To extend the life and appearance of your carpet, it is recommended to have your carpets professionally cleaned at least twice each year. Professional cleanings remove stains as well as dirt and allergens that are trapped between the fibers. You may be wondering when is the best time of the year to get your carpets cleaned, and you'll find the answer to that varies quite a bit. 

Clean on a schedule 

In order to keep your carpet looking its best (and lasting longer), you should have your carpet cleaned regularly - not just when company is expected. Keeping the carpet free from dirt and allergens prevents wear and tear on each individual carpet fiber. 

Clean seasonally 

Perhaps the easiest way to decide when to clean your carpet is take a look at the seasonal needs of your home.

  • Autumn: Cleaning your carpets in the autumn is a good decision for anyone hosting holiday parties. This ensures that your home and all of your carpets are clean, welcoming, and devoid of allergens that may irritate your guests. 
  • Winter: Cleaning your carpet in winter can help manage the winter weather and the resulting snowy boots caked with salt.
  • Spring: Spring is a good time of year to clean your carpets because the salt and wet boots of winter are now a thing of the past. Carpet cleaning in the spring gets rid of any trace of salt and mud, both of which ruin carpets quickly. 
  • Summer: The sand and dirt associated with summer activities can dirty a carpet, and because many families vacation during the summer, it's a good time to get the carpets cleaned while allowing for plenty of time to dry before resuming normal activities. 

Cleaning in autumn and spring seems to be the most popular choice, but remember that if spills pop up, a call to a professional carpet cleaner can quickly restore your carpets. If you're looking for professional tile cleaning or carpet cleaners, contact the team at Plymouth Carpet Service today.
