How Often Should You Have Your Carpet Professionally Cleaned?

One question we get from our residential carpet cleaning customers in Tyler TX is how often should their carpet be professionally cleaned. Often we hear our customers say that once their carpet is cleaned its never the same or that you should wait as long as possible between cleanings.

These comments are typically made by people who have had their carpet cleaned by technicians who are un-educated, lazy or both. Most often what has happened is the technician has left a heavy residue in the carpet. Soap of course attracts dirt and when left in the carpet, the carpet tends to get dirty a lot faster after its been cleaned than in the past.Traffic Lane Carpet

Fortunately, carpet can be cleaned properly by a true professional and left in a good restored condition. This is actually increase the lifespan of the carpet since damaging sand that was not removed with a vacuum is no longer cutting the fibers of the carpet.

Carpet manufactures recommend residential carpet cleaning should be performed by a professional every 18 to 24 months. And that professional should use hot water extraction as the preferred carpet cleaning method and that the professional carpet cleaning firm should be certified by the IICRC.

In addition to keeping the carpet in your home lasting longer. Hot water extraction also removes the pollen, dust and other allergens that can lead to poor air quality in the home.

So once again, every 18-24 months depending on traffic in the home (IE how many kiddoes you have) should be sufficient for most residential carpet cleaning schedules. If you would like further advise for carpet cleaning in Tyler Texas please give us a call.

  1. How often? Of course, as long as you see a bit of dirt on your magnifying glass. LOL… Seriously, we could avoid nose disorders through this.

  2. The key to a clean carpet is the speed, you would have noticed how careful you are, there is always a wine or spill coffee on your carpet, or a dog or cat is urinating or defecating on your carpet. The sooner you get involved in these accidents, the faster and easier it is to remove stains. Always keep a lot of paper towels or old towels thick white practice to mop the spill as soon as it happens.
