How Often Should I Clean My Carpets?
While carpet manufacturers recommend having most types of carpet cleaned every 4-6 months, I’ve found that all households are different and require different cleaning cycles. Time, more than anything else, can make the most common, easy-to-clean stains permanent.
If you happen to have a solid, very light-colored carpet coupled with an “active” household, I’d recommend a four-month cleaning cycle. In a home with minimal traffic, you might get away with a carpet cleaning every 6-9 months.
Purchasing a small extractor-type device can go a long way in saving the expense of hiring a company to clean your carpets. Acting quickly after a spill or pet accident is key to keeping your carpet looking new. If access to cleaning solutions and devices is delayed, try to blot up as much of the area as possible, then try to keep it damp til help is on the way.
High traffic areas are always the most challenging and problematic areas in a home with carpet. Some high traffic areas are also pivot points, a juncture where you tend to twist your foot to change direction. These areas are most prone to “greying,” which is essentially a carpets color fading and experiencing a high volume of foot traffic. It is important to vacuum these areas frequently as the build-up of dust and debris in these areas will cause them to wear incredibly fast. It is not uncommon for a room or entire house of carpeting to be replaced because of the fading and wear in these high traffic pivot areas, which probably only equal 10-15% of the entire carpeting in the home.
