Owning a home or property is a lot of work, especially if you have children and pets. With all the spills, messes, and dirt that accumulates, you may be wondering, how often should I get my carpets cleaned professionally?

As carpet cleaning experts, we believe the answer to this question is 12-18 months for optimal household cleanliness. This is simply a guideline and can vary depending on your specific situation.

While regular vacuuming and occasional shampooing may help prolong the lifespan of your carpets—typically 5 to 15 years—a deep cleaning by a professional is the only way to thoroughly clean the bacteria, hair, and dirt hanging out between fibers in your carpet.

A dirty carpet is not only unsightly and potentially smelly, but can harm the health of those living in your household. Those with allergies are especially prone to noticing health symptoms from unclean carpets.

Plus, some stains are stubborn and take the help of a professional to fully fade.

Tips for Keeping Carpet Clean Between Annual Cleanings

Between cleanings, here are some ways you can maintain your carpet:

  • vacuuming once or twice a week
  • leaving shoes at the door
  • changing and cleaning air filters
  • treating stains quickly
  • using indoor and outdoor mats to prevent dirt and grime from being tracked in
  • use rugs and runners
  • entertain outdoors in warmer months
