Many people believe that winter isn’t an ideal time for getting carpets cleaned. In fact, here in Colorado Springs, December through March is typically viewed as the ‘off season’, with many customers and property managers postponing work until the spring.
Here are 3 key reasons to reconsider putting off your carpet cleaning during the winter and early spring:
1. Protect Your Health: To escape the ice and snow (although not so much this winter!) we generally tend to be indoors more, with closed windows and less fresh air. Soiled carpets often have allergens and pollutants that contribute to poor indoor air quality.
2. Protect Your Investment: The more dirt and grime is allowed to build up, the harder it is to remove from carpet. Soil and dirt act as tiny ‘daggers’ to carpet—with every step you take, these tiny daggers cut at the fibers which in turn, shortens the life expectancy of the carpet. Also, spots left untreated turn into stains, making it difficult-if not impossible-to remove.
3. Get More Flexibility: In the spring and summer, good carpet cleaning companies like Bee-Kleen can book out two to three weeks. During the winter months, appointments are much easier to come by, which is especially helpful should there be an emergency.
It can be tempting to postpone carpet cleaning, especially in the winter and early spring. With daylight savings just around the corner and some nice days in the forecast, beat the spring and summer rush and book your cleaning today!
