There is comforting anticipation when preparing your home for the holidays. The rituals of cleaning and preparations combine tradition, joy and a welcoming sense of shared moments with friends and family. Seasonal preparations have us scrubbing, baking, cooking, and decorating.
With all the holiday running about and planning that must be done, having your carpets cleaned may seem like just one more thing on a very long list you’d rather not have to think about. However, cleaning your carpets now in preparation for the holidays can do more than simply make your home look more presentable to family and guests.
Here are a few seasonal reasons to clean carpets:
• Lovely Environment – Nothing beats cleaning the carpets for changing the atmosphere of a room. Your carpet is your decorative template, and no matter how clean the furniture or how lovely the decorations, nothing changes a room like a clean carpet. It says welcome to friends and family.
• Stain Prevention – An ounce of prevention is truly worth a pound of cure. With heightened traffic and more food consumption in every area of the home in this season, the chance of stains and spills increases dramatically. If your carpets are in need of cleaning, then it will be all the more difficult to clean up spills when they occur, especially sticky substances like holiday candies and sweets. Start the season with a clean slate, which will ensure easier clean-ups during the holidays.
• Odor Removal – Odors linger in carpets leaving the home smelling less than fresh, especially if you have pets. It is easy to become accustomed to odors that linger in your carpets, but others are greeting them anew. A good vacuuming, even with a dusting of baking soda, followed by a cleaning can renew your carpets’ vigor and neutralize any odors. Add to that natural seasonal candles that harmonize with cooking aromas and your home will become inviting and warm.
• Sanitation – Most families greet the season with children and friends opening gifts, and this traditionally involves sitting on the floor. Children and babies are crawling and playing with toys and treats. Your carpets act as a total extension in the home in the holiday season unlike any other time of year, so keeping the carpets fresh and sanitized is very important.
Scheduled carpet cleaning is an important consideration in maintaining carpet longevity and protecting your investment. It makes sense to schedule time for a cleaning before the holidays to present a fresh home. It’s a great idea to rent a carpet steamer from your carpet company if you are planning to entertain this holiday season.
