The Importance of Cleaning Your Carpets During COVID

Team Carpets, COVID-19

Even though we know that the coronavirus isn’t usually transmitted via surfaces, there are still plenty of reasons to clean your carpets during the COVID-19 pandemic. If it’s been a while since you’ve last had your carpets professionally cleaned, now is the perfect time to give them a refresh. Here’s why.

You’re Spending More Time at Home

Many Americans have shifted from working in an office to working from home, and even as the pandemic winds down, you might continue to work from home as a cost-saving measure for your company or simply because you prefer it. Between this and the fact that so many leisure activities were off-limits this past year, we’ve all been spending a lot more time at home.

All this time indoors means it’s more important than ever to make sure your home is a healthy environment for you and your family. When carpeting and rugs aren’t cleaned regularly, they can harbor allergens, bacteria, pet dander, and dust, impacting your home’s overall air quality. If your allergies have been acting up lately, it could be your carpet that’s to blame!

Then there’s the fact that when you’re spending your days at home, you want it to look nice. Carpet that’s matted, stained, or looking less-than-fresh makes you feel bad about your home. When your surroundings are clean, fresh, and tidy, it will lift your mood.

Your Carpets Are Getting More Use

Being at home all the time also means that your rugs and carpets are getting a lot more foot traffic—and probably a lot more spills and accidents too. Even if you don’t wear shoes in the house, that constant wear and tear ages your carpeting. When you’re not on top of maintenance, your carpet won’t last as long as it would with regular carpet cleaning.

We recommend that people who spend a lot of time at home and people who have children and/or pets clean their carpets more often than those who do not—and since we’ve all spent a lot of time at home this past year, just about everyone is due for professional carpet cleaning. 

COVID-19 Has Meant Big Life Changes

Many of us have experienced significant life changes during the COVID-19 pandemic. We’ve brought new pets into the home, our kids are doing remote learning, people are buying and selling homes, remodeling—there are so many reasons to give your carpet a deep cleaning to sanitize it and make it look brand new again. When you’re selling your home, clean carpets make a great first impression with potential buyers, and when you’re moving into a new space, having the carpets sanitized gives you peace of mind and helps your new home feel like your own.
