The easiest method of keeping your carpeting feeling and looking fantastic is to consistently clean them. However, what does “consistently” mean? How frequently should carpeting be cleaned? Some of it depends upon your situation. Some questions you should consider while determining how frequently you ought to clean the carpets include:
- How heavy is foot traffic in every carpeted space?
- Does anybody in the home smoke?
- Do you have allergies?
- Do you have pets?
If you have a small household without young children, smokers, or pets, you might have the ability to get away with vacuuming only one time per week. But, a general rule of thumb for the average household includes vacuuming two times per week, and have your carpeting professionally cleaned one time per year. For high-traffic homes that have smokers, children, or pets, we suggest cleaning your carpeting anywhere from 3 – 7 times per week, depending upon how soiled space is.
