Prioritize Carpets for Spring Cleaning

Prioritize Carpets for Spring Cleaning

Spring is in the air, and so is that annual time of the year that is dreaded by some called spring cleaning. Your to-do list is starting to pile up, but there’s one area of your home that’s easy to forget about that needs some TLC, and that’s your carpets.

Not only is regular carpet cleanings pivotal to keeping your home tidy and clean all year-round, but also vital for your health and allergies.

It’s not surprising that dirt, dander and other unwanted items can build up over time in your carpets. Instead of ignoring this central point in your home, it’s time to tackle it head on and make cleanings part of your regular routine.

Cleaning may not be everyone’s idea of fun, but just think of how you’ll feel after your initial deep clean of your carpets knowing that it will be easier to keep up and maintain going forward.

Here are some simple and easy tips on how to clean your carpets effectively:

  • Vacuuming is key to routine carpet maintenance. Experts recommend that you work this in your cleaning schedule at least once a week. This weekly chore can go a long way to help with allergies and just generally getting rid of the build-up that can accumulate in your carpets.
  • Deep cleaning your carpets is an easy thing to forget about, but this need is critical. Experts recommend that you should deep clean your carpets every six months to a year. This act not only helps to extend the longevity of your carpets, but also ensures that your carpets are clean and safe.
  • Now, the big question: Should I hire a professional carpet cleaning service or do-it-yourself? Depending on your time and budget, that will be up to you. The pros of going with a professional service are obvious with someone else handling the dirty work and freeing up your precious time to tackle other important things in your life. If you decide to take on the task yourself, you’ll want to either invest in a carpet cleaner or rent one.
  • Timing deep cleans can also be tricky. In order to make it part of your regular routine, perhaps, consider tackling during your other spring cleaning as well as right before the holidays to keep you home looking tidy all year round.
