It’s summertime and the living is easy, but your carpet sure is dirtier. With all the constant summer activities, your carpet takes a lot more traffic than the rest of the year. Here are the top four reasons why carpets are dirtier in the summer – and how you can take care of it:
- The kids are home for summer.
School’s out and the kids are running in and out of the house all day. Your home, and your carpet, just don’t get the same break as during the school year. Have you already started to notice more melted popsicle stains on the carpet? All that dirt from camp is probably transferring into the family room, too. It’s ok, more activity naturally leads to more traffic and distress on your carpets.
- Rural areas are kicking up dust.
Have you ever noticed summer just feels dustier, especially in the country? The nicer the weather, the less rain on rural roads. Whether you live outside town or take weekend trips to Yamhill Valley wineries, you’re bound to get some dust on your shoes and into your house which will settle into the carpet.
- Allergies are back.
There’s just something about summer that makes you want to roll down a grassy hill. Unfortunately for anyone suffering through a particularly harsh Willamette Valley allergy season, you’re probably picking up more pollen and other irritants than you’d like. The second you get home, you’re transferring those allergens onto every surface in your house. Short of building a decontamination chamber in your garage, there’s no way to keep all allergens out of your carpet.
- It’s remodel season.
‘Tis the season for a new kitchen addition. While a remodel brings an exciting new phase and look to your home, it can also bring dirty work shoes and lots of dust. A professional construction crew should always clean up before they leave. Even with the best intentions though, they’re not professional carpet cleaners. As soon as your new kitchen, bathroom or addition is done, make a thorough carpet cleaning your next priority.
It’s summer and you need a vacation.
The best part of summer is always vacation. You’ve waited all year and truly deserve it. Instead of coming back from the beach or Disneyland to a messy house (one of the top ten worst post-vacation feelings), why not get your carpets cleaned? While you’re doing all you can to keep your carpets clean during your day-to-day life, a deep clean is definitely needed. It’s important to choose trusted professionals like Morris Carpet Cleaning. You don’t want to let just anyone off Craigslist into your home! Make sure the company is licensed, bonded and insured with criminal background checks. A truly professional carpet cleaning company should be able to give you positive references from past customers, so don’t forget to ask!
