You may vacuum your carpet multiple times a week but getting professional carpet cleaning happens much less often. If you’re new to having carpet in your home, it can be difficult to know just how often you need to enlist the services of a carpet cleaning company, but we’re here to help.
The general rule of thumb is to get professional carpet cleaning every 12 to 18 months. However, if you have pets or kids, you may wish to have them cleaned twice a year. Also, take into account the amount of foot traffic that the carpet endures. For example, if your front room where people are entering and exiting the home multiple times a day is carpeted, that may need more cleaning than your spare guest room that is only used once or twice a year.
