Clean It and Mean It: Deep Carpet Cleaning During Winter

ServiceMaster of Marshalltown Carpet Cleaning in Marshalltown, IA

While we’re working our way through winter, the worst of winter grit and grime is working its way onto our flooring and into our carpets and upholstered furniture. Despite our best efforts, snow, salt and sand always find their way indoors. A great first defense is throw rugs, entry mats and boot boxes, but they can’t catch everything. For the dirt and slush that gets tracked through the floors in your home or office, call ServiceMaster of Marshalltown for expert carpet cleaning services in Marshalltown, IA.

Even though we may have the best intentions, not everyone wipes their feet as well as they should, or remembers to take off their shoes when coming in from outside. Over the course of the winter, those missteps add up and take a toll on carpets and hard surface floors. If you have a business or other commercial space, the problem gets even worse due to greater foot traffic. Plus, it’s pretty unlikely your clients or customers are going to volunteer to take off their shoes!

Upholstery isn’t immune to Old Man Winter’s list of dirty tricks either. When buildings are sealed up against the worst of winter, dust, pet dander and anything else floating around in the air settles on upholstered furniture and works its way into the fibers. That includes the viruses and bacteria we come into daily contact with that can make us sick. Upholstery cleaning by the professionals at ServiceMaster of Marshalltown may be what your home needs.

When faced with a strong offense, it’s important to have an even stronger defense. That means when you clean it, you have to mean it. Go the extra mile to keep your carpets, flooring and upholstery clean. Vacuum carpet and upholstery more frequently and for longer to prevent dirt buildup. When scrubbing floors, put a little extra “elbow grease” into it. Seek out the corners, grooves and crevasses that may get missed in a routine cleaning. When you’re cleaning floors, remind yourself they get dirtier in winter – especially deep down.

High traffic areas are particularly susceptible to heavy soiling in winter. One way to keep up with it is to use a good spot cleaner on those areas. Clean errant, wet footprints before they become a stain. It may not seem like a much, but it can make a big difference. Not only will your floors and furniture appear cleaner, but their life will be extended as well.

If things seem to have gotten a little out of hand and your home or commercial space is showing telltale signs of winter, it’s time to call in a professional like ServiceMaster of Marshalltown.
