Why You Should Clean Carpets After The Holidays

Now that the holiday season is over, the decorations are put away and the leftovers are eaten, it may be time to take a closer look at your carpet. While you probably cleaned your home to make it sparkle for the holidays, the parties, gatherings, and festivities might have taken their toll. You may think that a quick trip around with the vacuum is good enough for the post-holiday clean up, but here is why it may be a good idea to get your carpets professionally cleaned in the new year:

  1. Stains
    While taking a look at your carpet, check for stains that may have been left behind by a spilled glass of red wine, a chocolate truffle, or even some cranberry sauce. If you cannot remove the stain yourself, you are going to want to get your carpet cleaned as soon as possible so that the stain is easier to get rid of. If you did not know that a stain was there when it occurred, someone may have covered it up. For this reason, always check under area rugs when looking for stains. Remember not to get frustrated with stains as your carpet cleaning professional can help you get rid of them effectively and easily.

  2. Keep your guest rooms fresh
    If you have had visitors stay with you over the holidays, chances are your family and friends may have left your guest room in less than pristine condition. It is a good idea to deep clean your guest rooms after having so many guests, and this includes carpet cleaning to remove any tracked in dirt or particles. If pollutants become trapped in your guest room, they may stay there for some time until the room is used again. When they are finally disturbed, you and your guests could be breathing in unpleasant particles which can impact your health. Making sure the room is fully cleaned after use will stop future guests from having an unpleasant stay.

  3. Pine Needles  
    Many people enjoy having a live Christmas tree in their home, but near the end of the holidays the tree will begin to die, leaving the inevitable scattering of pine needles all over your home. While it is easy to sweep up the needles, your carpet can trap small needle fragments and sap within its fibres. Having your carpet professionally cleaned will remove all traces of the sticky sap and sharp needles, allowing you to enjoy your real tree without a large hassle.
