Happy holidays from Delta Chem-Dry! The holidays are an exciting time filled with hosting family and friends in your home. While you want your home to be clean and comfortable for the holidays, you also know that accidents can happen and there may be messes to clean up afterward. Deciding when to schedule deep carpet cleaning can be difficult at this time of year.

On the one hand, you want your living environment to be as fresh as possible for the holidays. On the other hand, you don’t want to risk accidents happening on a recently cleaned carpet. At Delta Chem-Dry, we understand the dilemma that many homeowners face when deciding when to schedule a deep carpet cleaning. We’ve listed some of the pros and cons to help you make the best decision for your preferences and peace of mind during the busy holiday season.

Carpet Cleaning Before the Holidays

One advantage of having your carpets professionally cleaned before the holiday season is that you’ll know your house is fresh and inviting for guests. Whether you’re expecting young children to crawl on your carpets or want to eliminate musty odors, professional cleaning can give you peace of mind.

That said, there are some cons to having your carpets cleaned before the holidays. With all of the cooking, feasting, and festive activities, spills are likely to happen. In addition, your carpet may experience extra wear and exposure to winter elements like snow, mud, and salt due to the increased traffic in your home. This may shorten the length of time your carpet stays clean after a professional cleaning.

Carpet Cleaning After the Holidays

There are many benefits to scheduling a carpet cleaning appointment after the holidays. You can remove any dirt, mud, and stains that accumulated during the holiday festivities and start the new year with a clean slate. However, if it’s been a while since your last professional cleaning, you may feel nervous about the appearance or smell of your home. If you’re looking to freshen up your home before your guests arrive, it may be worth considering scheduling a carpet cleaning beforehand. If you need to, you can always schedule another appointment after as well. 

Determining the Best Time for Carpet Cleaning

Ultimately, the best time to schedule deep carpet cleaning depends on your priorities and how recently your carpets were last cleaned. If you want your carpets to be as clean as possible at the start of the holiday season and are willing to risk them getting soiled during gatherings, it may be best to have them cleaned before the holidays. If you’re more concerned about dealing with the aftermath of parties and guests, it may be better to wait until after the holidays to have your carpets cleaned. If you’re not sure, you can use the timing of your previous professional cleaning as a guide. If it was within the last 3-6 months, you may want to wait until after the holidays. If it was more than 6 months ago, it may be better to schedule cleaning before the holidays.
