One of the most common questions asked is “How often should I get my carpet cleaned?” Although we agree that it makes sense not to get your carpets cleaned any more often than necessary, the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) recommends that carpets be cleaned at a minimum, every 12-18 months. This agrees with the recommendations of the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI).
Most carpets carry one or more manufacturer warranties. These warranties vary in what they will and will not cover. Some cover spots and spills. Other protect you from premature wear or unwanted changes to texture or color. One thing all carpet warranties have in common is that they require routine vacuuming, prompt attention to spots and spills as well as periodic cleaning by a qualified professional. Depending on the manufacturer and the product, this could be every 12, 18 or 24 months. Again, this is in line with guidelines from both IICRC and CRI. But remember, these are just minimum guidelines. Cleaning is about more than appearance. You need your carpet cleaned for health.
Determining the frequency of carpet cleaning in your home should be based on your family lifestyle. This includes the outdoor environment as well as the number of adults, small children, pets in your home. There are other factors such as whether there are smokers, allergy or asthma sufferers livig in your home.
Every family is different. Some families don’t wear street shoes in the house, while in other homes people are in such a hurry, they don’t even wipe their feet. Some families only eat and drink in the kitchen, while in other homes food and beverages are enjoyed throughout the house. Then there are the pet accidents, food spills and other soils common in busy, active households with kids.
In general, annual cleaning works well for most households. But if you have children, pets or any of the other factors mentioned above, you may want to have your carpets cleaned moe often; every 6-9 months. The best way for you to determine how often you should get your carpets cleaned is by observation. Notice how long it takes before routine vacuuming and spot removal efforts are not enough to keep your carpet looking, smelling and feeling clean. Remember, modern carpets are designed to hide soil. So by the time your carpets are visibly soiled, it is already past due for professional cleaning.
