What time of the year is best to have your carpets cleaned?
Carpets can make a home feel nice and cosy. Carpets not only feel nice under ones feet, they also act as a sound and thermal insulation. However, they also trap a lot of airborne dust that would otherwise cause allergies and affects those who suffer from asthma. As with everything we often use, they accumulate dust and grime and after few months start to look grubby. Weekly vacuuming with an adequate vacuum cleaner is better than nothing, but every now and again carpets need a wash. If you think of carpets as clothes, you can’t wear clothing for a year without washing, well you can, but you know that everyone will start noticing.
Private customers prefer to clean their carpets late autumn, or early spring. Nothing wrong with that, however carpets could be washed anytime, even in coldest and wettest days of the year. Nowadays modern equipment extracts up to 95% of the moisture after the domestic carpet cleaning, and carpets dry out naturally within hours regardless of the ambient weather.
Commercial carpet cleaning in offices and shops is usually done more often, every three months is the most common period, due to customer & staff traffic, and also due to fact the users of commercial carpets do not take their shoes off. Employers realise that by providing a clean environment, they actually provide a healthier and more productive environment for their employees.
Medical clinics usually have their carpets cleaned on monthly basis, due to the nature of their business/activity. They are usually cleaned late evenings, as they stay open till 8pm, and most work 7 days a week. It is still a mission to get an appointment though.
