The Many Benefits of Winter Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning

Top Ten Reasons to Clean Your Carpet and Upholstery This Winter

Most people's mindset when it comes to winter carpet & upholstery cleaning is "I'll just wait until spring." But savvy consumers know that winter is a great time to get their carpets cleaned. "Why?" you ask. Well Mella is going to let you in on the ten best reasons to follow this little cleaning pro tip.

Top Ten Reasons for Winter Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning
Improves Indoor Air Quality: You spend much more time indoors during the winter, and with windows closed up tight there's less fresh air coming into your home. This can cause the bacteria, allergens, and pollutants stuck in your carpet and upholstery to recirculate over and over, negatively impacting your indoor air quality.

Kills Viruses and Bacteria: The winter sees a dramatic increase in cold and flu incidence, with February being the month with the highest infection rate. One of the benefits of hot water extraction cleaning is that the extreme temperatures of the water can kill germs, pathogens, and bacteria in your carpet and furniture. Also we can add a disinfectant that is guaranteed to kill 99.9% of all viruses and bacteria.

De-yuckifies Your Home: Right now there are likely millions of dust mites in your carpet and furniture. They feed off of dead human skin cells and deposit their feces in your fabrics. Feeling the creepy-crawlies yet, yeah so are we. Hot water extraction removes dust mites and bedbugs that make their home in your carpet and upholstery fabrics.

Makes Maintanence Easier. Most stains are made up of dry soils; when fabrics are kept thoroughly cleaned on a regular basis, most dry soils can be removed with regular vacuuming. Over time dirt and spots set and become harder to remove. Don't let your winter spots become spring stains.
Reduces Damage: The longer dirt and contaminants remain in your fabrics, the more damage it can do to fibers. View contaminants as tiny daggers. With foot traffic, these tiny daggers cut away at your fibers, shortening the life expectancy of the carpet or upholstery.

Prolongs the Life of Carpet & Upholstery. Regular cleaning using the extraction method can increase the life of carpets significantly, protecting your floor-covering and furniture investment.
It Dries Faster: The winter months are the driest time of the year. The heat in your home, and the dry air, makes winter a perfect time to clean your carpet and upholstery. Quick drying reduces the "no walk period" and leads to a more effective cleaning process.

Maintains the carpet’s warranty. Most carpet warranties require that carpets be cleaned using the extraction method within a specific amount of time, usually every 12 to 18 months. Failing to do so invalidates the warranty.
Flexible appointment times: In the spring and summer, some carpet cleaning technicians can be booked two or three weeks in advance. During the winter months, appointments are much easier to come by, which is especially helpful should there be an emergency.
Cost savings: Mella offers off-season pricing discounts to help you keep your home fresh and clean during the cold winter months.
