With the nights drawing in and the winter months upon us, we tend to want to hibernate, close the windows and turn on the heating.  This year with the current pandemic we are being asked to stay indoors more than ever before.

So, the question is should I have my carpets and upholstery cleaned in winter?

Many of us will probably be thinking of delaying the carpet cleaning until spring arrives, however you may want to think again.  There are many valid reasons to have your carpets and upholstery cleaned this winter.

The main one being those wet and muddy shoes and boots that we traipse in and out of the house. Not to mention those minor spots and stains over the festive period that can become permanent without proper cleaning.

Here are just a few good reasons to have your carpets and upholstery cleaned this winter:

(1) Getting organised

Professional carpet cleaning companies become terribly busy during the springtime as everyone tends to have the same idea, to have their homes deep cleaned.  Having your carpets and upholstery cleaned in the winter months is much easier to organise and you have more chance of getting a date and time to suit you.

(2) Tougher To Clean

The longer stains and dirt particles are left on our carpets and upholstery, the harder they become to remove, if left too long they become impossible.  The longer any soiling is left the more damage it can do to your carpets and upholstery.  Dried up soil and other outdoor items come in through doors with foot traffic from us and our pets.  These particles cut away at the fibres, shortening the life expectancy of your carpets.  Maintaining all year-round cleanliness means that they will last longer.

(3) Eliminate allergens

During the warmer months of the year, pollen, dust, and airborne pollutants enter your home through open windows and if you never had your carpets cleaned all that contamination makes an unhealthy indoor environment.  The same can be said for the winter months as keeping our windows closed everything we brought in on our shoes and boots and paws is now trapped inside and embedded into our carpets and upholstery.  Having your carpets and upholstery cleaned reduces and removes those pollutants, making your home fresher, cleaner and healthier to live in.

(4) The Festive season

Although this Christmas is going to be like no other, we have experienced, that shouldn’t stop us wanting the home looking spick and span for the big day.  We may not be having as many guests as planned but that doesn’t mean the carpets and upholstery should be left this year. Sprucing up the home and decorating it can lift our spirits, in fact many of us are putting the decorations up earlier than usual for that reason.


In short having your carpets and upholstery professionally cleaned this winter, will prolong the life of your carpets, eliminate those nasty allergens in the home making it a healthier, cleaner environment for you and your family. Last but not least it will cheer both you and your home up during these cold dark months.
