Are There Certain Times of Year that are Best for Rug Cleaning?

August 25, 2017


Not only is the carpet in your home the first thing guests notice, it is also one of your biggest and most important investments. A plush, fresh carpet, can do wonders for your home's aesthetic appeal. To keep your carpet in prime condition, it's important to maintain it with regular cleanings. So, when is the best time of year to have your carpet cleaned? 

Traditionally, people tend to think of spring as the month for deep down house cleaning. While this is always a good idea, particularly if you live in an area prone to wet, snowy, or muddy winters, spring is not the only time you should refresh your carpeting. While annual carpet cleaning is certainly recommended, a skilled carpet professional can help you determine how often you should have yours cleaned to keep it pristine and looking new.

For instance, you may want to consider certain factors when thinking about when to schedule a cleaning:

Small Children

If there are small children living in your home, knowing your carpet has recently been deep cleaned will put your mind at ease as you watch them play on the floor.


A home with pets can always use some freshening. No matter how hard we try to keep the carpet clean, at some point, busy paws we may not have had the time to wash as well as we intended to, will be happily trotting across the floor. While we wouldn't trade Fido for anything, our furry friends are notorious for bringing dirt and bacteria inside the home.


Anyone who has allergies will be especially grateful for routine deep cleanings. Removing pet dander, dust, and any other allergens, is reason enough to keep up with professional carpet cleaning.

As you can see, aside from keeping the carpet in your home looking fresh and new, routine carpet cleaning has a number of other benefits. Rather than rushing to have the carpets cleaned before the holidays when guests will be arriving, or after the traffic your house has seen throughout the kids' summer break, why not keep your home's biggest investment in the best shape possible for as long as you can.
