Why Fall Is The Perfect Time of Year For Carpet Cleaning In Illinois

Fall is a favorite season for many of us in the upper midwest, with cooler temperatures, turning leaves, and enjoyable holidays. It’s also a time to do all of the chores that ensure that your home is ready for the winter season. 

When you are raking leaves, cleaning gutters, and preparing your yard, remember to consider the interior of your home as well. You will be spending more time indoors over the next few seasons, and you may be hosting more as well. Because of these factors (and many more), fall is a great time to consider having your carpet cleaned.

Here are the details on why Chicago area homeowners should consider scheduling a regular fall carpet cleaning.

Cleaned Carpets Dry Quicker In Cooler Weather

In Illinois, we typically have damp weather in the spring, humid weather in the summer, and messy, salty snow everywhere in the winter. Fall brings mild, dry weather which allows your freshly cleaned carpets to dry quickly.

Remove Allergens From Your Home

Summer is a great time to have your windows open, allowing the summer breeze into your home. Unfortunately, this breeze can carry pollen, dust, and other allergens that can collect in your carpet and cause problems for people with allergies or asthma. Having your carpets cleaned in the fall removes these allergens, so you can enjoy a cleaner, healthier environment while indoors.

Improve Indoor Air Quality

As we just mentioned, clean carpets contain less allergens. Beyond those particles, carpet can also collect additional airborne pollutants and particles like dust, mold, and even tiny insects. In fact, your carpet is often the largest air filter in your home! Before you close up the windows and turn the heat on, it’s important to ensure the air quality in your home is as good as it can be. Clean carpets help provide clean indoor air.

Remove Recent Stains and Wear

Did you host a lot of events or houseguests at your home this summer? With your kids home from school, did they spend more time in your home, perhaps with groups of friends? All of these special memories can leave evidence behind in the form of carpet stains and wear patterns. 
If you don’t get help with stains like this immediately, they can start to set in and become much more difficult to remove. Professional carpet cleaners can often remove issues that normal vacuuming can’t.

Protect Against Increased Traffic

Even if you didn’t host a lot of people over the summer, you may be planning a busy holiday season. Of course you will want to welcome your guests into a home with fresh, clean, carpet but there are additional benefits to scheduling a carpet cleaning before an event. 

If you have lots of guests in and out of your home, your carpets will be faced with additional foot traffic, wear, and spills. When you have your carpets professionally cleaned, protectants that can renew your stain-resistant carpet, repel liquid, and prevent stains can be applied. This can stop future problems before they start, make maintenance easier, and prolong the life of your carpet.
