The carpet in your home is one of the most expensive and largest finish materials. To ensure that your carpet stays in great shape and lasts as long as possible it needs proper care and maintenance. One of the most important aspects of carpet maintenance beside vacuuming is regular professional carpet cleaning. In many cases it is recommended that you have your carpets cleaned at least once a year. This has led some carpet owners to wonder is there a certain time of year that is best to have the carpets cleaned.
The answer to this question depends upon your lifestyle and the climate of the area in which you live. If you live in an area with a really raining wet muddy Spring that comes before a busy action packed summer with kids running through the home you might consider getting your floors cleaned in the fall when the kids are back in school and activity in the home is a little more quiet. Maybe you have a damp fall and winter season and prefer to have your home clean during New Year’s/January when many people are thinking of a fresh start. Or maybe you are traditional in the sense that you clean your house from top to bottom in the Spring and include carpet cleaning in your Spring cleaning list.
There is not a “best” time of year for everyone to have their home clean, but it should be done at least annually on a regular basis to keep your carpet in its best condition not when the carpets feel icky or look dirty. Over the course of a year if you take great care of your floors, your carpets may not seem feel or look dirty but they still need the yearly cleaning there is a lot that accumulates in the carpet that we cant see. It is better to proactive with maintenance than wait until there is a visible problem.
