It is that time of the year again. The most beautiful time of the year, and although we are in the heat of a pandemic, we are determined to have a swell time with family and friends and have a wonderful Christmas celebration.
As we purchase our groceries and Christmas gifts in anticipation of this wonderful celebration, we must not forget a very unassuming but vital item lying around in our homes.
You guessed right, our cosy and snuggly carpets are a big part of our celebration, and here are a few reasons why we must get them cleaned professionally before the day.
Reasons why your carpet should be cleaned for Christmas
1. Allergens Love Carpets Too
Think about it this way, those cosy looking, snuggly carpets also attract allergens in the air.
Allergens are microscopic elements in the air that can easily trigger an allergic or asthmatic attack when inhaled.
You don’t want any of your guests to have an allergic reaction while celebrating Christmas at your place.
It won’t be a good remark for you that right after Christmas, or even during the Christmas celebration, one of your guests or family members gets an asthmatic attack or some sort of allergy solely because of exposure to the dust from your carpet. Definitely not the kind of compliment you want as a host. Nobody wants to be tagged as “the one who ruined Christmas”. Trust me, that tag will stick for centuries. A quick trip to a professional rug cleaning service before Christmas will spare your blushes.
2. Spotless Carpets Make Better Holiday Photos
Remember those awesome family pictures you keep hidden away safely in a safe (underwater), all because of hideous patches on the poor old carpet you forgot to cover while taking the photos?
Oh well, you can avoid that easily. Having a spotless, clean and fresh carpet adds more beauty to the surrounding.
Nobody wants to see those coffee spills and dried out beer patches in their Christmas photos.
With a carpet that’s ‘flawless’, we can bet that your Christmas photos would come out more beautiful and elegant.
3. It adds life to the Christmas celebration
Christmas in itself brings the spirit of happiness, and literally, everyone celebrating tends to put up a cheerful mood.
Keeping a neat and tidy carpet during the celebration adds spice to it already. As a matter of fact, having a clean carpet which alongside, contributes to the cleanliness of the entire environment influences the mood of the people around.
It aids in making you and your guest happier. Your family members and guests are prone to give off healthy behavior’s to reciprocate the environment. They tend to feel at home, relaxed and be comfy. It boosts their sense of wellbeing and makes them less anxious. A clean carpet improves the mood (yes that mood too!) and lightens the air around.
4. More time indoors
With Christmas time being in the winter season, we are sure to have colder and chilly weather as the day goes by. We would be inclined to stay most of the time indoors. This actually gives us more family time together and catching up.
A couple of families usually get involved in family games and all.
With a carpet that smells and feels nice and cosy, one would be encouraged to spend more time indoors with the family; enjoying the warmth of the house. It even helps us to have our ‘Me time’ without being distracted by the sight of dirt or some winter bug sprawling all over your carpet.
5. Long-lasting carpets
The carpet is never “greener” on the other side of the fence.
That snuggly looking cosy carpet at your neighbour’s shack looks that way after several years simply because it has been routinely cleaned over the years.
Our expensive carpets last longer when they are tended to more effectively. We would agree that the cost of carpets is kind of pricey. In fact, they aren’t just cheap. I am at least certain that one wouldn’t want to have ‘carpet-purchase’ in every budget list when we know fully well, that the money could be channelled to something much better.
And so, ensuring our carpet lasts us a little longer will help us out here. When our carpets are kept clean and tidy, it extends the durability and still poses the possibility of it having a good quality alongside. Having a carpet that’s efficient for a good period helps you save a little more cash.
With the services of a professional cleaning agent or company, you can get your carpet clean and tidy for Christmas.
It is expedient, however, that while seeking for one, you do a bit of research on the company. Don’t worry, you do not need some fancy like Sherlock Holmes-like skills to do this, but a rather simple check on the reviews from previous customers who have patronized them would give you a clearer picture of which cleaning outfit to patronize.
These customers already have a taste of their services and can at least provide some testimonials that would aid your choice. Be sure to know their policies too. It enables you to hold them accountable accordingly while rendering their services to you.
Also, we would advise that if possible book for the services in time because the closer it gets to the festive period, the higher the demand for these services and you guessed right again, the higher the prices. In as much as we know, they would try their best to give you the best, booking them earlier guarantees a good service.
Need a little incentive to get that carpet cleaned?
Here is one final point: A little bird informed me of Santa’s plans to give the individual with the cosiest and cleanest carpet an extra cookie when he comes visiting.
HO HO HO. Have a wonderful holiday, and don’t forget to contact a professional cleaning service to get that carpet cleaned properly.
