Yes, the run-up to Christmas and the holidays is a hectic time of year – but it is also a great time to get your carpets cleaned.
When preparing for festivities – especially if it is your turn to host this year – it is important that your home provides a clean and welcoming environment for guests. A thorough clean for your carpets removes harmful bacteria, as well as any dirt. This leaves your carpets looking fresh, odourless and safe for your guests. It also removes any unsightly stains that may otherwise make an appearance in your Christmas photos.
When researching carpet cleaning solutions, here is what we recommend:
- Seek the help of a professional
To save yourself time, secure high-quality results and avoid costly mistakes this close to the holidays, we recommend contacting a professional service. For more information, check out our previous blog post on DIY vs. Professional Carpet Cleaning.
- Do your research
When contacting a carpet cleaner, research the company beforehand. Have a look at which methods they use, their before and after photos, as well as customer reviews. If you are contacting a carpet cleaner for a small job (e.g. a single stain removal) also be aware that they will have a minimum call-out charge – you can ask about this when contacting them. You want to ensure that the company you choose are reliable and trustworthy.
- Book early
A lot of people like to get their carpets cleaned around this time of year. While companies will try to be as flexible as they can to accommodate your needs, if you have a tight schedule, it is definitely worth booking in advance to secure the best time for you.
- Ask about other services
In addition to carpet cleaning, many companies also offer cleaning services for hard flooring, rugs and upholstery. We do this, plus cleaning for mattresses and curtains, as well as several multi-purpose cleaning packages.
To maintain carpet cleanliness during and after the holidays, we recommend placing floor mats beside your entrances. This will help to protect your carpets from guests who enter your home with muddy shoes. Placing a shoe rack by your door will also prompt guests to remove their shoes as they enter.
