How often should you have your carpet professionally cleaned?

A question I’m often asked is “How often should I have my carpets cleaned?”

The Carpet & Rug Institute recommend having your carpet professionally cleaned every 12 to 18 months – depending on a number of factors.

In particularly busy households, with lots of traffic, pets and children, cleaning may be required more frequently.

While a yearly carpet clean will help keep your carpet in great condition, regular vacuuming is very important, especially if pets also live in the house! A weekly vacuum, including the corners and edges where dust builds up, will really help extend your carpet’s life and improve the air quality in your home, as carpets filter the air in our houses!

  3. Vacuum regularly – at least once a week and more frequently in high traffic areas.
  4. Use a professional Carpet Cleaning company every 12 to 18 months to remove grime and ingrained dirt.
