How Often Should Carpets Be Cleaned?

The Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration has stated in the Standard for Carpet Cleaning that "Consumers must not wait until carpet looks soiled before cleaning. Experts agree that clean carpet contributes not only to the overall aesthetics of a structure, but plays a significant role in the healthful state of the overall environment in which people spend the majority of their time."

The following information is to serve as a guideline for cleaning frequencies for carpet from a health perspective and is taken from a letter dated Jan. 1989 from the United States EPA.

carpet cleaning frequency

A large number of households wait to clean their carpet until it is very soiled. Unfortuately, by this time they have done a lot of damage to the carpet fiber. I tell our customers, "The more often you vacuum, the less often they will need to clean." The reason we say that is not because we don't want to clean their carpet but because their home enviroment will be cleaner and their carpet last longer. When they do clean, they will be cleaning for health not just appearance of the carpet.
