With changes in weather on the way, it is important to know when are the best times of the year are to clean the carpets inside your home. When it comes to soil levels in your carpets there are a lot of factors at play. We’re here to give you an idea of what some of those factors are, and what times of the year might be good times to freshen up the carpets in your home.
When it comes to figuring out whether or not your carpets need to be cleaned, one thing to keep in mind is the size of the household. Larger households typically need the carpets cleaned more frequently due to having more traffic in, out, and through the house. For example, if one would be hosting a large family dinner, it would not be a bad idea to clean the carpets before and after the event. Remember, although it may seem tedious to get your carpets clean, it is an important thing to do to keep your carpets clean and healthy, and to help ensure a longer life span.
Similar to what was just mentioned above, the amount of foot traffic in the house can dictate how often the carpets need to be cleaned. If in the summer and winter you are accustomed to having family over, get-togethers, or parties, you will want to clean your carpets more frequently. A good rule of thumb is to have your carpets cleaned at the beginning of the busy season and again at the end.
A life hack of sorts is to try and reduce footwear being worn in the house. Shoes, boots, sandals, and any type of footwear that is frequently worn outside can bring in dirt and dust, and can quickly dirty up a clean carpet, especially in areas that lead outside. Even if the carpet looks clean, dust and dirt can still get into the microfibers of the carpet. By leaving shoes near entrances and exits of your home, it is easier to keep the carpet throughout the rest of your home cleaner and softer throughout the year.
As we all know, spring arrives at the end of winter. If you live in an area where the winters are more harsh, rainy, or snowy, this can be the perfect time to clean your carpets. This spring cleaning can liven up your carpet and help prepare your home for the coming sunshine season.
In the summer many of us tend to on vacation to other places, leaving our homes vacant for certain periods of time. If you are out of your home, you might not need to have your carpets cleaned due to the lack of foot traffic. However, if you live in an area such as San Diego, where a vacation for most people is practically right outside your doorstep, this might be a good time to get your carpets cleaned. San Diego summers for most people are filled with beach days, pool days, and other exciting activities. If you find yourself constantly going from your home to the beach, it might be a good idea to keep in mind the amount of sand you’ll have in your carpets at the end of the season.
Speaking of which, the beginning of fall is a great time to have the carpets cleaned in your home. Now that summer is coming to a close, outside activities are beginning to become more limited, and school is going to be starting up, this is typically a popular time of the year to have your carpets cleaned. Holidays are going to start popping up, which means friends and family visiting. Having a nice clean carpet this time of year can make get-togethers more pleasant. This will also prepare the carpet for the upcoming winter months. For San Diego, we don’t typically have much to worry about. But for areas that experience a bit more weather, this is the perfect time to prepare.
This is typically when people spend the most time in their homes. Days are shorter, the heater or the fireplace is running, and the hot coco is flowing. Having clean carpets can make this time spent indoors more enjoyable, and more comfortable. With leaves, debris, and allergens that are created in the fall and spread throughout the home, this is a perfect time to have your carpets professionally cleaned.
Your carpets don’t need to be cleaned every season!
While we mentioned several times to get your carpets cleaned throughout the year, you typically don’t have to clean them at the change of every season.
