How often should you have your carpets cleaned?
Good quality carpets are a major investment and it pays you to look after them… but just how often they should be cleaned depends on your household. Every household is unique! The number of adults, children and pets in the home is a major consideration, as the more feet, the more soil!
Many other factors including the type of carpet, type of soil and even your ventilation system all go to determine what is best for your particular household, which is why we conduct a ‘Healthy Home Carpet Evaluation.

On an Evaluation we will look at all the facts, and not make assumptions. For example if you took two homes next door to each – one belonging to a young family with pets at home most of the day, and the other home the same size, but owned by a young professional couple, out most of the day and evening – the difference in cleaning would be vast!
As a guide to help answer the question, the ‘Textile Cleaning Standard’ from the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) the worlds leading body on textile cleaning have produced a report.
They have worked with fibre producers, carpet manufactures and the Environmental Protection Agency in America and here in the UK to give a guide to the frequency of carpet cleaning in the home.
Remember you shouldn’t wait for your carpet to look dirty before you clean it… its important to keep your ‘filters’ clean so they can look after your family!
The one thing we can recommend is that you look at a planned maintenance programme. We will keep your ‘clean carpets clean’ and leave you to get on enjoying your life!
Use the correct filtered vacuum cleaner regularly to reduce dust in the home and have a planned maintenance programme with professional cleaning.
