December 30, 2016 Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Google+ Consumer Advice

To extend the life of your carpet you will need to clean it often. A dirty carpet contains soil and debris that wear your carpet’s fibres. Carpet cleaning removes these damaging particles, leaving you with the question; How often should you clean your carpet?

How often will depend on how may people are in the home, are there any children and if you have pets and whether or not you have smokers in your home.

  • If you have a home with two adults, you should clean your carpet every six to twelve months
  • If these two adults are smokers you would then need to make it every four months
  • If you have children or pets on your carpet it is recommended to clean the carpet at least every six months
  • and if you have both children and pets it is best to clean the carpet every three months
