Why Professional Carpet Cleaning in Summer Is Necessary

summer carpet cleaningCarpet attracts debris year-round. However, dirt and dust accumulation especially ramps up in the summer. We’ll explain the factors that make carpet cleaning in the summer an essential component for good housekeeping. Just because the carpet looks clean does not make it so.

More Foot Traffic

The kids are out of school. With more people occupying the home for longer hours, you can bet the carpet will come into contact with more grime. The kids will traipse in and out the front door or backyard, introducing more dirt to the carpet every time. Consider a house rule of no shoes in the living room.

Foot Traffic from Pets

Many pet owners swear that their dog’s or cat’s energy level ramps up in the warmer months. Pets that continuously trot around the carpet are going to leave fur and dander behind. Furthermore, dogs that are not getting enough stimulation outdoors may do so indoors, in the worst possible ways. This includes scratching and pawing the carpet and upholstery.

Our special offers, by the way, include pet odor treatment.


Summer is the time for backyard cookouts. Even if guests dine outdoors, expect them to transport food and cookware in and out. A single drip from a greasy pan or ketchup-stained fork can really leave a bad stain. Consider using disposable eating ware and keeping the trashcan outside.


Tacoma summers can be quite humid. Some of that moisture in the air will ultimately make its way into the carpet. Moisture in the carpet may go unnoticed because it leaves no visible stains. However, water and warm weather are the perfect catalyst for mold and fungus growth.
