How often do I need my carpets professionally cleaned?
Assuming you’re cleaning it regularly yourself and don’t have any allergies, hiring a carpet cleaning service every 12 – 18 months is usually enough. Maybe a little more often than that depending on how much foot traffic you have around the house, how often you vacuum the carpet, whether or not you have pets, etc.
Back when I lived in Taunton, for example, I ended up having to hire a carpet cleaning service at least twice a year because I had two huge dogs that always made a mess. I suggest you keep an eye out for stains, foul odors, mold, and issue issues appearing on your carpet — those are classic signs that it’s time to hire a professional cleaning service. Pros can get rid of dirt that your vacuum won’t, as this County Cleaning Somerset page shows.
It’s also smart to keep an eye out for indoor air quality problems. If you’re waking up with a stuffy nose or people in your house are getting out-of-season allergies, that might be a sign that the carpets need to be cleaned.
