A family playing in the fall leaves5 Reasons To Prioritize Carpet And Upholstery Cleaning This Fall

The first official day of fall was just two days ago! Our weather is getting crisp, apples are coming in even stronger, and even with the recent fires, there’s a sort of joy in the air. Fall comes with a big long to-do list. Most of the tasks have to do with raking leaves and preparing for winter and holiday season. Rarely do you think to get your carpets and upholstery cleaned. It might surprise you to know that now is probably the best time of year to get it done! Here are 5 reasons you should clean your upholstery and carpets this autumn. 

1) Faster Drying Times

Fall is the perfect time in between the hot summer and freezing winter for carpets and upholstery to dry. You can open up your windows to allow the fresh and cool air into your house. This will help ventilate the house properly and lead to rapid drying times. The Chem-Dry Hot Carbonated Extraction already dries in just a couple of hours so setting up an appointment with us in the fall means you can get back to your carpets in near-record time. 

2) Better Air Quality

Allergies tend to run rampant through the fall. Families spend a lot of time outdoors and then quickly hurry back in when the temperature outside drops when the sun goes down. When you do this, you fill your carpets and furniture with allergens which can hurt your air quality and sinuses. A good carpet or upholstery cleaning from Chem-Dry can make all the difference. In fact, we’ve been shown to remove 98% of allergens from carpets and upholstered furniture*. If that’s not enough we can add a hospital-grade sanitizer to remove an additional 89% of airborne bacteria*. 

3) Protection from Stains

Your family will likely be spending a little more time in-doors too. Especially in the latter part of the fall. Because of this, stains and spills are inevitable. Plus, an increase in foot traffic can lead to other damage that cleaning can help to prevent. That’s why it’s so important to book a carpet cleaning now. Chem-Dry can apply a special protectant to your carpets to keep them fresh and virtually stain-free all season long.

4) Look & Feel Fresh 

2020 isn’t really a great year for Fall house parties. But of course, there are still safe ways to enjoy time with small groups of friends and family members. Getting your carpets and upholstery cleaned now will lead to your home looking and feeling fresher for your guests.

5) Extend the Life of Your Carpets & Furniture

The experts recommend having your carpets and upholstery professionally cleaned at least once each year—and for good reason. Doing so can help extend the life of your flooring and furnishings. A good rule of thumb is to schedule your professional carpet cleanings and upholstery cleanings annually at the same time each year, which makes fall a good reminder.
