Prepare Your Home and Carpets for Winter in Mankato and Waseca, MN

ServiceMaster of Mankato/Waseca provides winter carpet cleaning services.

Airflow is important in a home, whether to keep it cool in the summer or well heated in the winter. To help make your home more energy efficient you may have had your utility come out to check for leaks in your walls, ceilings, and windows. Perhaps you “winterized” by caulking around windows and doors and adding weather stripping. That special effort is great when you’re trying to save on heating bills, but let’s go back to the air that’s already in your home. If you’re going to spend three, four, or five months indoors with that same air circulating, you want to ensure that it’s clean. You can clean your furnace and ducts, but what about your carpets? It’s time for a professional carpet cleaning by ServiceMaster of Mankato and Waseca, before you close up your house for the winter!

Plenty of bacteria, spores, and pollen can be resting in your carpets, not counting any of the smallest insects that you can’t easily see that may have already entered the house to avoid the cold outside. Add to that the food spills from parties and meals over the last few months and any kind of dust or dirt that the kids and your visitors have tracked in. Your regular cleaning, no matter how diligent you may be, doesn’t capture everything. Also lingering in the carpet may be dander and hair from pets as well as residue from pet accidents. The chemicals, organics, inorganics, and dust may interact with each other, causing further deterioration and damage to your carpet. Now consider what all that may be doing to the air inside your home. That’s not something you want your family inhaling for weeks on end. And, if anyone in the house has an allergy, it’s probably going to get worse.

Take the time now, when there’s not any snow on the ground, to have a thorough, professional carpet cleaning in your Mankato or Waseca, MN home. Trust us, as you breathe easier, you’ll be glad you did! For a winter carpet cleaning that will last you until spring, call us today!
