A good schedule for cleaning your carpet floor covering is essential for so many reasons. First, a well-kept floor is a great way to ensure the lifespan of your flooring.

Regular cleaning is beneficial in many ways, and you'll want to know all about them. Here are some facts that can help you set a schedule for your home.

Vacuuming and cleaning at home


Vacuuming should happen as often as necessary, or at least once every two to three days. This is an excellent rule for homes with low to medium traffic levels.

Higher traffic areas might mean vacuuming your carpeting as often as every day, especially with pets. It's important to keep dander, dirt, and debris from the ground into your carpets.

It's important to spot clean as necessary, as soon as spills and messes happen. This can keep permanent stains at bay, especially in busy, spill-prone areas.

Professional cleaning is essential too


A general rule is to have your floors cleaned once every 12 to 18 months. But again, if you have high activity levels or particular circumstances, you might need to do so sooner.

If you're not sure about a cleaning schedule for your home’s carpeting, be sure to speak with an associate while you're here. We'll ensure your floors stay in great shape as long as they're in place.
