When Is the Best Time to Schedule Carpet Cleaning?

If your home has carpet, you may be wondering if you should have professional carpet cleaning done, and if so, when. Is one season of the year preferable to another, for example? Or, does it just need to be done when the carpet looks dirty? Since long-term damage has often already occurred by the time a carpet looks dirty, we recommend regular cleaning as a preventative measure rather than a cure for dirty carpet. At Rug Renovating, we know that regular cleaning is the best way to keep carpets looking new, and here are just a few of the most popular times homeowners choose to schedule with us.

When Is the Best Time to Schedule Carpet Cleaning?

When Moving into a New Home

Often, new homeowners choose to have their carpets cleaned before moving into their new home and it’s easy to see why! In fact, you’ll likely never have a better opportunity. This will probably be the only time your home is completely empty of furniture, and nothing is in the way of a thorough wall-to-wall cleaning. After you’ve moved in, carpet cleaning will be a much bigger project. New homeowners also prefer to professionally clean their carpets because they just don’t know how well the previous owners took care of them. Maybe they had them regularly cleaned, or maybe it’s been five years! That’s potentially a lot of dust mites, mold spores, pet dander, and other germs that you’d probably rather not live with.

The Spring

Spring cleaning is popular for a reason. After a long winter of being cooped up inside, homeowners love to start spring off by deep cleaning their homes, and that includes getting their carpets cleaned. Having your carpets deep cleaned as part of your spring deep clean is a great way to remove all the dust, dirt, pollen, pet dander, dust mites, and other allergens that have settled in the fibers during the winter months. This will improve your indoor air quality and help to avoid allergy attacks that are common in the spring.

Before or after Big Events

Finally, we often have homeowners schedule carpet cleaning to prepare for a big event or to clean up after they’ve hosted. Depending on your situation, you may want to have your carpets cleaned beforehand to give your home an especially clean look and make a great first impression on your guests. However, if you plan to host small children, guests with pets, or individuals who prefer not to take off their shoes, it may be best to wait until after the party is over to have your carpets cleaned. You’ll be able to remove all the extra pet dander and lost skin cells your guests left behind.
