Buying a new home is an exciting time full of anticipation and joy, but it certainly leaves you with a lot to think about and a mile-long checklist in order to prepare. Through all the excitement, it is one of the busiest times in a person’s life, and you might feel that your to-do list is through the roof already. However, there is one essential thing that you might not have thought of – but you certainly should! When you move into your new home, before you get started with unpacking your boxes and moving your furniture in, you should put some time aside to have the carpets cleaned in the new place first! This has so many benefits, and is certainly worth taking the time to set up.
When you viewed your new place, the carpets might have looked fine – they might even still look good without all of the furniture, but that certainly does not mean that they are clean. Moving into a new home, you want everything to feel brand new, and keeping carpets that might not really be clean is certainly not the fresh start you want. Carpets have a way of trapping all kinds of debris and particles that you might not even know are there, such as harmful allergens that can exacerbate allergies, dust, dirt, pollutants and even dust mites; these are not things you want to be breathing in when you move into your new home! There might also be some stains from the previous owners as well as nasty odours that might crop up in the future as more dirt settles into the carpets.
Professional carpet cleaning services are able to remove dirt and clean your carpets in a way that vacuuming and spot cleaning simply cannot come close to. Furthermore, there is no better time to have this service done than when the home is entirely empty and all parts of the carpet can be reached. This means that when the time comes for you to move into your new home, you can rest easy knowing that the carpets are as clean as can be.
As well as the reasons above, there are also other great benefits to having carpets professionally cleaned that you may not even have considered yet, such as:
Improving the air quality in your home, due to the removal of pollutants and allergens. This has even been shown to have significant health benefits.
Brightening up the inside of your home in general.
Improving the overall freshness and smell of your new place.
A professional cleaner will be able to use specialist tools to see where the debris is worst, steam cleaning to get rid of stains and chemical treatment for, particularly harsh ones. Furthermore, hiring a professional means that you don’t have to set the time aside to clean the carpets yourself during this especially busy time of moving house!
