How Often Should You Clean Your Carpet?

Daily, Weekly, Monthly, and Beyond

Are You Making These Carpet Cleaning Mistakes?

If you’re like many people, the thought of pulling out your vacuum cleaner every day is a daunting, seemingly unnecessary task. And then there are the time-consuming tasks like shampooing your rug. How often do you really have to clean your carpet? Use this guide to help you come up with a schedule that works for you.

How Often Should You Clean Your Carpet?

  • Immediately. Clean up any spills or accidents as soon as they happen to prevent hard-to-remove stains and keep the padding under your carpet from harboring unpleasant odors.
  • Daily. Pick up large debris on your carpet every day. If left, debris can be ground into your carpet fibers, causing stains and making it even more challenging to pick up with your vacuum cleaner.
  • Weekly. You should vacuum your carpet at least once weekly to pick up crumbs, dirt, hair, allergens, and dead skin cells—all things that can become trapped in your carpet causing allergy-like symptoms and unpleasant odors. If you have pets, you may need to vacuum more regularly.
  • Monthly. Inspect your carpet for hidden stains on a monthly basis. Even though you may have missed the stain when it first happened, it’s best to take care of it as soon as possible so it doesn’t become more challenging to get rid of.
  • Yearly. To extend the lifespan of your carpet, you should shampoo it at least once a year. This helps fluff up the fibers that become matted over time and get rid of any lingering stains.
