Carpet Cleaning Frequency

Carpets and rugs add a comfortable and stylish touch to your home. Unfortunately, we did not realize that carpet fiber can easily trap and hide dirt, bacteria, fungus, and germs from our eyes.

Of course, you were thinking that you were able to keep your carpet clean by yourself? What you need to do is vacuum it alone. But you’re wrong! Carpet also needs neat intensive care from you.

This is the fact that many people may forget or may not even know. The carpet also requires regular cleaning from a professional cleaning service. In fact, almost every carpet manufacturer advises you to deep clean your carpet professionally every 8 months for normal conditions, just to make sure your carpet is clean and safe.

In other words, vacuuming itself is not enough to make sure your carpet is completely clean and safe. You need to do a deep carpet cleaning from a professional cleaning service. So how often do you need to clean your carpet?

Regular cleaning of carpets

Cleaning a carpet doesn’t just to look good and fluffy, but it promotes indoor air quality, reduces health risks and extends the carpeting’s life as well. But for most people, the most basic question about carpet remains, “How often should I clean the carpet?”

The right way to think of carpet cleaning is periodic. But what is periodic meaning? Well, periodic in cleaning is something done on a regular schedule that can vary due to special conditions. Yes, there are some conditions and questions that need to consider when determining how often you need to clean your carpet, including:

  • Do you have pets?
  • Do you have allergies?
  • Does anyone in the household smoke?
  • How heavy is foot traffic in each carpeted area?

If you do not have children, pets or smokers, regular cleaning should be done to keep your carpet clean and safe once a year. However, if you have a child, a pet or a smoker, it is recommended to do professional cleaning between 3 to 6 months.
