Carpet cleaning is a critical part of
house cleaning. The frequency of your carpet cleaning depends
on how dirty your carpet is. Most of the time, the only
carpet cleaning necessary is vacuuming. Frequent vacuuming
helps preventing dirt from permanently set into the carpet. If
the carpet has been dirty for a long time, light carpet
cleaning or just vacuuming will not make the carpet clean. It
is important to deep clean the carpet every 12 to 18 months to
remove other stains on the carpet that are not loose dirt.
Carpet cleaning should not wait. If your carpet needs cleaning,
clean as soon as you can. You can hire a carpet cleaning
professional to help you if necessary. The sooner you clean,
the cheaper and easier carpet cleaning will be.
How often should I vacuum the carpet?
you should vacuum carpets at least once a week.
However, in high traffic areas such as
hallways, stairs or entryways, you may want to
vacuum the carpet more than once a week. Twice
or three times is common depending on how soon
your carpet get dirty. There is the
professional looking way to vacuum the carpet
so that your carpet looks like it was cleaned
by a carpet cleaning professional.
