With the holiday season on the horizon, you may be gearing up to host guests, throw parties, and welcome children and pets into your home. While you want your home to be clean and comfortable for the holidays, you also know that accidents happen and there may be messes to clean up afterward. Deciding when to schedule deep carpet cleaning during this hectic time of year can be challenging.
When deciding whether to schedule deep carpet cleaning during the holiday season, you may be weighing the pros of having a clean and fresh home for guests against the cons of risking accidents on a recently cleaned carpet. At Chem-Dry of Westchester, we understand your dilemma. To help you make the best decision for your needs, we’ve listed some of the pros and cons of scheduling deep carpet cleaning during the holiday season.
Carpet Cleaning Before the Holidays
While there are both pros and cons to having your carpets professionally cleaned before the holiday season, one of the biggest advantages is that your home will be fresh and inviting for guests. If you have little ones who will be crawling on the floor or want to get rid of musty odors, a professional carpet cleaning can give you peace of mind.
However, it’s important to keep in mind that with all of the cooking, feasting, and festive activities, spills and messes are bound to happen. Additionally, your carpet may experience extra wear and tear during the holiday season due to increased foot traffic and exposure to winter elements like snow, mud, and salt. This may shorten the amount of time your carpet stays clean after a professional cleaning.
Carpet Cleaning After the Holidays
Scheduling carpet cleaning after the holidays has its own advantages. You can remove all the dirt, mud, and stains that accumulated during the festivities and start the new year with a fresh start. However, if your carpets haven’t been cleaned in a while, you may be worried about how your home looks and smells. Especially if you’re planning to host events. You may also be concerned about your children being exposed to the dirt and grime in your carpets. If you’re feeling stressed about the cleanliness of your home during the holidays, it may be worth considering scheduling a carpet cleaning before. You can always schedule another appointment after the holidays if needed.
When to Schedule Deep Carpet Cleaning
The best time to schedule deep carpet cleaning depends on your priorities and how recently your carpets were cleaned. Do you want your carpets to be as clean as possible for the holidays? Then, it may be best to have them cleaned before the holidays.Are willing to risk them getting dirty during gatherings? If you’re more concerned about cleaning up after parties and guests, it may be better to wait until after the holidays.
Use the timing of your previous professional cleaning as a guide, if you’re not sure when to schedule your cleaning. If it was within the last 3-6 months, you may want to wait until after the holidays. If it was more than 6 months ago, it may be better to schedule cleaning before the holidays.
