As February ends, most Calgarians are itching for spring. Everyone is feeling more than ready for the warmer months, when we can stop tromping through slush and stepping on wet carpet at the office. As the promise of spring slowly arrives (It can’t snow ALL of March and April, right?), many Calgary business owners are feeling the need for a deep, spring cleaning. But should they wait a little longer?

 

Nope! If you’ve been planning a deep spring cleaning — and especially a professional carpet cleaning — for your business then you’re right on schedule. In the Calgary climate, carpets bearing high foot traffic (typical at clinics for example) should ideally be professionally washed twice a year. We recommend March/April and September/October. Businesses who are only going to have carpets professionally cleaned annually, should choose a spring cleaning and skip the fall.

 

Professional Carpet Cleaning in March? Perhaps because everything is frozen and many people have a cold, but over the winter, most people don’t really notice how smelly carpets are. However, with the thaw of spring, that’s about to change. Since October, your carpets have absorbed a lot of snow, slush, road salt, dirt, and general muck. All that trapped moisture has fed mildew and dust mites for 6 long months. The accumulated trapped pollutants are released into the air with spring, hence the great stink. 

 

We Recommend the Early Spring because it’s still quite dry out. As we approach July, Calgary goes into its rainy season. During the early spring (before May), precipitation is still quite minimal. That’s good for few reasons:

  1. Your freshly cleaned carpets will stay cleaner longer.

  2. The carpets will quickly dry completely after they’re washed. This prevents mould from taking root anew. 

  3. When we professionally clean carpets, we also protect them. By having the carpet washed now, you’ll be protecting your commercial flooring as we go into the next muddy, wet season.

 

Many Calgary businesses are already scheduling a professional carpet cleaning for their commercial space. Proactively washing carpets before they begin to stink helps to reduce complaints from occupants while simultaneously bolstering your professional image as a company that’s on top of every detail.
