Should I Steam Clean my Carpets in Winter?
Yes! There is no reason not to have your carpets steam cleaned in winter and in fact cleaning your carpets in winter is ideal for a couple of reasons. First of all, your carpet stays cleaner for longer in winter and it’s easy to get an appointment that suits you as winter is a slower season for carpet cleaners so they are more likely to be able to work in with your hectic schedule. One major concern people have with steam cleaning in winter is that the carpets won’t dry. This may be the case for budget or DIY steam cleaners but at Results Home Services, our equipment is top of the line commercial carpet cleaning equipment and we only use the hot water extraction method; this paired with our experienced, qualified technicians means we don’t over wet the carpet and it will be dry to the touch 1-2 hours after the clean (yes, even in winter) opening a window or turning on a ceiling fan will reduce the dry time even more.
Nothing beats the feel of clean, fresh carpets under foot especially in winter when you’re all rugged up. Dirt, dust, pollen and other pollutants find their way into your carpet by being walked in or by brought in on a breeze. Over a period of a year, these pollutants build up in your carpet pile, rubbing against your carpet fibres, causing them to wear and fray. Naturally in winter, people close their windows and doors as a means to keep the heat inside and thus removes one key way pollutants find their way into your carpet.
Cleaning your carpets in winter is really the best way to beat the spring/summer rush when carpet cleaners are flat out. Having your carpets and upholstery cleaned in winter means you can avoid the rush and get an appointment that suits you and your busy schedule. It also means you’ll be more likely to get a coveted early “first up” time slot.
