How Often Should I Have My Carpet Professionally Cleaned?

By May 15, 2016No Comments

Carpet cleaning is important not just for keeping your home feeling fresh and clean, but also for keeping your carpet in the best shape possible for the longest period of time. Improper maintenance of your carpet can actually cause you to need to replace it sooner, so it’s important to stay on top of it. But just how often do you need a professional deep clean? There are a few factors that go into knowing when it’s time to hire someone to clean your carpets.

1. Clean Your Carpets Before They Start Looking Gross

Your carpets are dirtier than they appear, and by the time you can see the wear they’re already overdue for a clean.


2. Clean Your Carpets as Often as Your Warranty Dictates

If you have a warranty on your carpet, make sure to check how often you are required to have your carpet cleaned in order to maintain that warranty. Often, warranties will require you to have your carpet professionally cleaned at least once a year, but it may change from manufacturer to manufacturer.


3. Clean Your Carpets More Often if You Have and/or Pets

If you have children or pets in your home, you’ll need to clean your carpets every 6 to 12 months to keep them well maintained.  Between cleanings, be sure that you are vacuuming frequently to deal with the hair and dander that your pets leave behind. If your pets are not yet house trained and have frequent accidents, you’ll need to have your carpets done even more frequently to prevent permanent damage and unpleasant odors.


4. Clean Your Carpets Based on Your Foot Traffic

One of the best ways to know how frequently you need to have your carpets cleaned is how much foot traffic they endure on an average day. If you live by yourself or with another adult, you may only need a carpet cleaning every two or more years. If you live with several roommates or if you entertain often, you may need to hire a professional more frequently. Your personal standard of cleanliness may also be a factor in determining your time frame.
