How Often Should You Clean Your Carpets?

Having fresh and clean carpet can instantly brighten up the look and feel of your home. But many homeowners can attest to how difficult it is to maintain vibrant and nice carpets, especially if they have young kids or pets. A lot of dirt, stains, and spills can sink deep into your carpet, and over time this can become an overwhelmingly troublesome problem to deal with – not to mention it’s also unhygienic and unsafe. At My Home Carpet Clean, we’ve cleaned the carpets of thousands on homes in Australia with all sorts of carpet stains, spills, and other damages. Drawing from our expertise, we know what works in keeping your carpets clean. So, with our recommendations on how often you should clean your carpets, you’ll be assured your carpet can look healthy and last far longer than you expect.

My Home Carpet Cleaning’s Powerful Dry-Touch System has been proven to lift dirt and dust trapped deep beneath and inside carpet fibres – giving you the best look and feel for your carpets.

Carpet Cleaning Frequency: Home vs Professional

There are a lot of factors that go into determining exactly how many times you should be cleaning your carpet, as well as how deeply you need to clean it. This depends on factors such as whether you have young children at home if you have people who smoke, or how frequently everyone wears their shoes indoors etc.

However, generally speaking, the amount of foot traffic (how often people walk inside your home) can be a good starting indicator as to how frequently you should clean your carpet by yourself and by professional cleaners. Note that you may need to clean your carpet more or less depending on your individual lifestyle and activities at home.

Here are some guidelines to help you gauge how often you should clean your carpets:

Carpet Cleaning by Homeowners:

  • Lightfoot traffic: Vacuum once a week
  • Medium foot traffic: Vacuum 2-3 times a week
  • Heavy foot traffic: Vacuum 4-6 times a week or daily

Carpet Cleaning by Professionals:

  • Lightfoot traffic: Deep Cleaning Service Every 1.5 to 2 years
  • Medium foot traffic: Deep Cleaning Service Every year
  • Heavy foot traffic: Deep Cleaning Service Every 6 months

My Home Carpet Cleaning ensures your home’s carpet remains clean and healthy all year round – free from stains, spills, damages, and other unpleasant carpet issues.

Other Ways You Can Clean & Maintain Your Carpet

Aside from regular vacuuming, there are other things you can do to better maintain your carpet and keep it looking cleaner for longer.

Clean Spills Immediately

Always ensure you clean up any spills on your carpet as soon as it happens. If left untouched for too long, the spill can penetrate deep into the carpet fibres and make it immensely difficult to get rid of – not to mention you’ll have a noticeable stain on your carpet, too.

Don’t Wear Shoes Indoors

Wearing shoes inside your home can bring in all sorts of dirt and stains for your carpet. To keep up the healthiness of your carpet, simply refrain from wearing outside shoes within your home – or opt for indoor slippers.

Place a Rug

For high foot traffic areas that you know is vulnerable to stains, spills, and damages to your carpet, place a rug over the top to cover the area. Cleaning a rug will be much more manageable than your entire carpet floor – and it could also give a nice touch to the aesthetics of your living space.

Why Every Home Needs Professional Carpet Cleaning

Doing a thorough and deep clean of the entire carpeted area in your home can not only be time consuming but inefficient if you don’t have the proper technique or equipment to do so. You’ll also find that when your carpets aren’t cleaned properly, they can easily become dirty again. For all the things that home carpet cleaning can’t achieve, professional cleaning services can. At My Home Carpet Cleaning, our specialty is in returning your worn-out carpet back to its vibrant, new, fresh look for your family and friends to enjoy again.
