Winter Carpet Cleaning, Are You Crazy?!

Absolutely not! We know it may sound counterintuitive, but getting a winter carpet cleaning is surprisingly sane. Here’s why winter is the perfect time to get your carpets cleaned by Modernistic.

It Just Dries Faster

One real bummer when you’re waiting on your carpet to dry after a fresh carpet cleaning is humidity. Luckily, quick dry time is one of the best benefits of having Modernistic over to clean your carpets in the winter. During the winter months, it may be as cold as a lonely snowman, but it’s definitely dry. The combination of low humidity and higher heat temperatures in your home or business create the ideal environment for quick drying.

More Dirt & Allergens

One thing we do when it’s cold is spend more time inside bundled up. It’s easy to forget that the more time we spend inside, the more dirt and allergens we accumulate in our home or business. Staying in more means walking inside more, tracking in frozen contaminants, and downgrading your air quality. Without having regular carpet cleaning, even more toxins and allergens are added into the atmosphere over time. A simple cleaning will help alleviate many of these concerns, keeping your home or business cleaner and healthier.

Road Salt Stains

When it’s white outside, it’s nearly impossible to keep it from coming inside. When temperatures drop as low as they have, you will have to deal with road salts getting tracked inside. Typically you’ll find salt in high traffic areas like your entryway and hallways. Then you’ll find yourself asking “How do you get salt out of carpet?” Now you could put unsightly rubber mats everywhere, or you could use one of our great deals and have Modernistic come out to take care of your winter carpet cleaning needs.

These road salts and ice melts contain high alkaline content and can leave ugly stains and residue on your carpet fibers. Not only does this look bad, but it can also cause increased damage to your carpet with frequent traffic grinding these salt particles into your carpet. This will cause it to degrade quicker and lead to the need to replace your carpet sooner than you would have liked. The best solution, of course, is to have a professional cleaner like Modernistic come to your home or business to safely extract all of these worrisome little crystals before they cause fiber damage.

Why Wait?

So what have we learned? Many things about the winter are crazy, but having your carpets cleaned when it’s cold isn’t. Because of this dirty little secret, many people wait until it’s warm out and leave us with more appointments available for your own winter cleaning. Avoid asking, “How do you get salt out of carpet” and schedule to have Modernistic clean your home or business today.
