Should You Clean Before the Holidays….or After?
Have you ever wondered, should I have my carpet and upholstery professionally cleaned before the holidays….or after?
Well, that depends. First of all, are you having guests in for the holidays? If you have noticeable stains on the carpet…..it would be nice to clean those before your guests arrive.
If you have pets who sometimes have accidents, a professional cleaning can get rid of stains, odors, and even keep your pet from revisiting that old familiar spot – because they no longer smell where they’ve “been” before.
Are your guests going to be bunking on the couch? Yep, go ahead and get that cleaned and fresh-smelling, too.
BUT……if your carpets, rugs and furniture are in good, clean shape, there ARE reasons to wait until AFTER the holidays to have a professional cleaning.
For example, if your guests are bringing small children, you will inevitably have extra spills. Are they bringing pets, as well? Be prepared for an accident or two.
Or, if you’re having the biggest party of the year at your house…..maybe, just maybe, waiting until after your holiday party is the best time for a profesional to get things back to normal again.
Things to think about….you want to get the best bang for your buck.
