Carpet Cleaning Tips for Winter in Edmonton, AB

Winter in Edmonton is upon us. With high amounts of snowfall and cold temperatures in our midst, we may be in for another rough couple months. When we spend more time inside the need for more frequent carpet cleaning increases. Outdoor elements such as moisture from snow and tracked in rock salt can also pose a threat to your carpets during the winter. Here are a few carpet cleaning tips for winter in Edmonton, AB.

1. Entrance Mats:

Whether at home or in your place of work, you should have an entrance mat system. Simply placing an entrance mat around doors will trap moisture, dirt and rock salt that can be damaging to carpets during the winter. As more dirt is tracked onto your carpets the faster the carpet fibers will degrade, decreasing the longevity of your carpets. Purchasing entrance mats will save you time and money spent on keeping your carpets clean during the winter!

2. Increase Vacuuming:

There are two reasons to vacuum more frequently during the winter. The first reason is to collect anything tracked in from the outside. The second reason is to improve air quality. Carpets act like giant sponges absorbing dust, dirt and allergens. During the winter when there is typically more dust build-up in homes and offices which can create a stuffy and unpleasant environment. Regular basis vacuuming will help remove dust and dirt that is trapped in your carpets to keep them clean and improve air quality.

3. Shampoo and Steam Cleaning:

Carpet shampooing and steam cleaning provide a much deeper and thorough cleaning than a typical vacuuming. Steam cleaning involves hot water extraction that removes dirt, dust and allergens that are too deep in the carpet to remove by a vacuum. Shampooing will brighten the color of your carpets. The two services are popular during the winter to remove ice melters such as rock salt and calcium chloride that can cause discoloration in carpets.
