2017 Holiday Carpet Cleaning Guide
The holidays are upon us and what a better way to celebrate than having some of your closest friends and family over to be merry and get into the holiday spirit! If your plan is to entertain guests this holiday season, it's always a good idea to make sure your house and carpets are looking and smelling as fresh as possible before your guests come over to enjoy all the delicious food and drinks you have been preparing. One way to help with that is by having your carpets deep-cleaned by a professional carpet cleaner. You'd be surprised just how much of a difference having your carpets professionally cleaned makes as opposed to trying to clean them yourself!
In addition to having your carpets cleaned, here are some tips to help you maintain the best-looking clean carpets this holiday season:
- Use floor mats at the entry-ways to your home or carpet runners in areas that get a lot of foot traffic to help prevent dirt from spreading into the fibers of your carpet. This is especially useful if you are having a lot of guests walk in to your home with their shoes on.
- Around the holidays, it's common for people to drink wine and spirits. However, accidents do happen! If red wine spills on your carpets, do your best to clean it up as quickly as possible before it stains!
- Avoid making simple carpet cleaning mistakes, as recommended by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)
- If you have large area rugs or oriental carpet, it is highly recommended to have these professionally cleaned, as dirty rugs can attract moths or larvae.
However, the cleaning doesn't end with just your carpets. If your home has a lot of tile in it, take action to have your tiles professionally cleaned in order to avoid the build-up of dirt and grime in the grout between your tiles. This can cause unwanted bacteria! Planning to have your guests lounge around in the living room? Make sure that your furniture and upholstery is as clean as can be. You definitely don't want your guests sitting on a filthy couch or a sofa that smells like pets!
By following these tips and guidelines, your guests will be amazed at the cleanliness of your home.
