How Often Should I Have My Carpets Cleaned?

To get the most life out of your carpet, you’ll want to have it cleaned BEFORE it starts to show signs of wear. Having your carpets cleaned is a chore that usually falls into the same category as spring cleaning: not very fun to do, but necessary, and should occur with at least the same level of frequency. Most carpet owners, however, will only have their carpets cleaned once every few years (and some not even that).

Deep-down soil, that settles to the base of your carpet fibers can cause your carpet to break-down prematurely, shortening it’s lifespan.  Think of it as preventative maintenance – you change the oil in your car before the engine begins to make knocking noises, right?  Take the same good care of your carpet and it will last longer and look better.

We all love our pets!  Unfortunately with pets in the home, you should be having your carpet professionally cleaned every 6 to 12 months.  More frequently if your pet has bladder/urine issues.  The reason for more frequent cleanings is due to the fact that your pets drop dander, hair, and dust on your carpet fibers.  Frequent vacuuming can extend the time needed between professional cleanings, but frequent vacuuming can mean three times a week or more – and who has time for that?

Carpet cleaning is not merely cosmetic. Having your carpet cleaned will revitalize your carpet and increase its lifespan. For optimal performance and duration, manufacturers recommend having your carpet cleaned at minimum every 12 – 18 months, depending on the amount of traffic in your home. In fact, many warranties stipulate this — be sure to carefully read your warranty information.
