Wall-to-wall carpeting should be cleaned fairly often, depending on what you subject it to. Of course, your carpet is the ground beneath your feet, so you probably do not treat it particularly well. It takes more than red wine spills to stain or even drastically cheapen the appearance of carpet. Dust, dirt, grime, pet dander, food crumbs, and so much more can slowly make your carpet look dingy and old.
While you should try to remove stains quickly and vacuum once a week, deeper action is required to keep your carpet looking its best. It is important to know how often you should enlist professional carpet cleaning services. Follow this guide based on how well you treat your carpet.
For carpet that is not in high-traffic areas and is kept clean, you should have them professionally restored every 2 years.
For carpet in homes with large families, small children, and elderly individuals, you should hire professional cleaning and restoration once a year.
Carpet in homes with smokers, pets, several small children, frequent stains or spills, and high traffic should be cleaned semi-annually, or twice a year. This pattern is also recommended for those that are not strict about vacuuming their carpet at least twice a month and who never spot-treat their carpet.
Carpet in homes with large families and multiple pets, businesses with lots of foot traffic, and homes with careless treatment of their flooring should hire professional cleaning services quarterly, or 4 times a year.
Carpets in large business foyers, or where hundreds of people cross the carpet in a day, should be professionally cleaned once a month to prevent total carpet loss.
