Winter Carpet Cleaning: Using A Courtesy Door

May 9, 2024

In the winter, many individuals will put off having there carpets cleaned. This is especially true in Colorado Springs because of low temperatures and snow. Thankfully, courtesy doors make carpet cleaning in the cold a bit more feasible.

What Is A Courtesy Door And Why Should You Request It?

The courtesy door is an adjustable spring load vinyl door cover. The courtesy door has many advantages including:

  • A window in the door so you can still see anyone who is approaching the front door while we work
  • Allowing hoses to be run into the house, but it keeps the warm air in and the cold air out
  • Preventing cats or dogs from running outside while our technicians are cleaning

Drying Carpet In The Winter

What may surprise you is that carpets actually dry faster in the winter. In Colorado our winters are very dry even when there is snow on the ground.. If the doors or windows are open, drying happens at a faster rate.

Will Winter Carpet Cleaning Increase Your Heating Bill?

Those clients who are concerned about their heating bill can be at ease that any cost to maintain the temperature in the house is very minimal. The courtesy door will help keep the warm air in and your house can be clean and fresh in the winter too.

Why You Should Have Your Carpet Cleaned In The Winter Despite The Cold

The indoor air quality of your home can be very poor during the winter months. Indoor air quality in the winter can be much worse than outdoor air quality..This can be attributed to many things including:

  • The lack of fresh air
  • The tracking in of soil on shoes or pet’s feet
  • Snow, ice-melt, and salt 

Unfortunately, the poor indoor air quality can make many individuals more susceptible to winter colds. Our courtesy door can help alleviate that concern.
