How Often Should I Have My Carpet Cleaned?

Vacuuming your carpets isn’t enough. There will soon come a time where you will want to consider having your carpet professionally cleaned to help keep your home spotless and allergen free and to extend the life of your carpet. Just how often should you have your carpet cleaned? Here’s a rough guide for your home.

The Average Carpet

It really depends on factors like the amount of foot traffic your carpet receives and where that carpet is laid, but on average you should look at getting the carpet cleaned every 12-18 months. This helps to lift all the dirt that gets into the fibers that vacuuming just doesn’t manage. You’ll also brighten some of the darker patches.

If your carpet is in a second home and rarely used, then cleaning can be less frequent. Just bear in mind that while there’s no foot traffic, dust will settle within the fibers.

That being said, if your carpet receives daily foot traffic and sees mud and dirt dragged in, you may want to consider cleaning more frequently.

Cleaning for Families

Families will find their carpet needs cleaning more frequently. You should consider professional carpet cleaning  every 6-12 months, instead. Your children are more likely to drag mud and dirt in or can spill drinks frequently.

Those who have pets should also consider cleaning every six months or so. The pet hairs will get stuck in the fibers and can cause some allergens. There will likely also be dirt and urine accidents that seep into the fibers.

Do you have both kids and pets? Consider cleaning every two or three months. This will help to eliminate pet problems and keep your children safe. You know they love to pick up anything from the floor and put it in their mouths!

So as you can see there is no one set rule for how often you should have your carpet cleaned but keeping these variables in mind mainly how much your carpet is used and your particular family members, and making sure you do not wait too long in between cleans will help keep your carpet investment longer and your home a healthier place to live for you and your family.
