Why You Should Clean Your Area Rug for the Holidays

There are probably a million and two things you need to get done before the holidays are upon us. While you’re preparing everything make sure that you don’t forget your area rugs. Clean area rugs are an important part of getting your home ready for guests.

Benefits Of Cleaning Area Rugs Before The Holiday Season

Here are just a few of the many reason why you should have your area rugs professionally cleaned prior to the busy holiday season.

Restore The Original Beauty Of Your Area Rugs

Nothing completes a room quite like the beauty of an area rug. The perfect area rug is hard to find and is usually a bit of a financial investment, but it’s so worth it in the end in order to complete your home and add a beautiful finishing touch.  

It’s inevitable that over time, your area rug will become dingy, dirty, and matted down. Professional area rug cleaning can gently yet powerfully lift dirt and stains and restore the vibrant color and feel of your precious textiles. 

Your home will be beautiful and bright with area rugs that look like new again—just in time for your guests to arrive. It’s an easy way to impress your mother-in-law–and she’s sure to notice if your rugs aren’t clean! 

Create A Healthier Environment For Your Family And Guests

Over time, area rugs become collect dust, dirt, allergens, pet urine, and nasty odors from a variety of sources. These contaminants not only put your family at risk when they walk, sit, our lounge on these rugs (got any kids who play on the rug?), but they can be released into and inhaled through the air you breathe, triggering asthma, allergies, and odor. 

This becomes even more of a problem around the holidays when we tend to spend more time indoors and have guests over to our homes. Luckily, area rug cleaning from Short Stop Chem-Dry removes dust from area rugs—improving indoor air quality. Taking advantage of this service creates a safer, healthier environment for your holiday guests and your family to enjoy. If that’s not the best gift you can give, what is?  

Remove Stains from Gatherings

One of the best times to get your rugs cleaned is actually in between Thanksgiving and Christmas. This is because when you host a large Thanksgiving gathering, you often end up with something spilled on the floor. Even if you don’t, all of the foot traffic of a busy Thanksgiving can cause your rugs to get dirty.

If you plan on hosting a Christmas party, or even just sitting on your rug to open Christmas presents under that tree, it’s a great idea to get your area rugs cleaned beforehand. This will make your home and your celebration much cleaner and more enjoyable for everyone.

Just remember, these appointments go fast. Schedule your cleaning today to ensure you get a spot!

Prevent Future Area Rug Stains

If a cleaning after Thanksgiving is ideal, you might be thinking that a cleaning after Christmas would be even better so that you can take care of all of the foot traffic stains at once. However, it’s actually a good idea to get your rugs cleaned and protected with a protectant before your big event. Rug protectant is a special coating that helps your rugs resist dirt and other soiling, making them easier to clean afterward. Remove Thanksgiving spills and add a protectant against Christmas foot traffic all in one appointment.
