Should I get my carpet cleaned now? Or wait until after the holidays?

I am a real neat freak and we just had our 12 year old daughters birthday party at our house. There are some spots on the carpet that drive me crazy just looking at them! But with the holidays right around the corner, Im wondering if I should just let it ride out.

  • If you are going to have a lot of people over for the holidays then I would wait that way you wont have to do it again. But if it bothers you then do it now. I mainly just do spot cleaning and the whole thing in the spring and in the fall.

  • I would say clean them now, so that they're nice for when guests visit for the Holidays.

  • When I had carpet, it was cleaned several times a yr ... Spring cleaning, before and after Holidays in the Fall/Winter...
    It helped with odor from our 4 kitties, and all the foot traffic...

  • Do a spot cleaning and then get it cleaned after the holidays

  • Spot cleaning never even crossed my mind, since I just always get the whole carpet cleaned. But I think I will do the spot cleaning and then do the entire carpet after the holidays. Awesome suggestions ladies!! <3
