Don’t Wait Until the Spring to Clean

February 12, 2015

We are all familiar with the term “spring cleaning,” but why wait until the spring to clean your home and get it looking its best?  With the new year approaching, you are probably preparing for a new years gathering, college bowl parties, super bowl watch party, and lots of entertaining.  This is the perfect time to get your home in tip top shape.  

You can start by having your carpets professionally cleaned.  A fresh home begins with clean carpets.  Not only will a professional carpet cleaning help to extend the life of your carpet, but it will give your carpets a bright, fresh, pristine look for all of your company.  Professional carpet cleaning is also beneficial because it will get rid of non-living allergens* in your carpets as well.  You will be ridding your home of many of the non-living allergens that lurk during this time of year.  In a season where people choose to stay home and get cozy by a fire, you can enjoy the look and feel of fresh carpets. 

If you live in an area that is prone to snow, deep cleaning your carpets is a great way to rid them of the salt and grime that tends to collect in carpet fibers.  By professionally cleaning your carpets, you can remove stains, mud, and grime that oftentimes can accompany the snow.  Once you have had your carpets thoroughly cleaned, you should leave snowy boots and shoes by the door, in order to prevent further messes on your carpet. 

In addition to deep cleaning your carpets, winter can be an excellent time to focus on cleaning your upholstered furniture as well so you can enjoy snuggling on a fresh, clean couch during the cold winter season.  While it is recommended that you have your furniture professionally cleaned every 18-24 months, you can also maintain your furniture between those cleanings by vacuuming it regularly and protecting it against spills and stains.  Furthermore, winter is a great time to rid your furniture of the dirt, and dust that typically thrive during the warmer months.  Once you have professionally cleaned your furniture, you can enjoy the winter months in a cleaner space. 

Don’t wait until spring to enjoy the look and feel of a fresh, clean home.  Winter can be a perfect time to focus on deep cleaning your home.  Since most people tend to spend more time indoors during the winter months, it only makes sense to get your home looking its best.  Not only will you enjoy relaxing in a fresh home, but you will be prepared for all of your holiday company.
