At Heaven’s Best Carpet Cleaning in Birmingham, AL, we recommend a professional carpet cleaning frequency of 1 annual treatment minimum. There are several things you can do to maintain your carpets over the course of the year so I’m going to break down the various maintenance procedures based on a general traffic rating assumption.
For lightly soiled carpets, you will want to vacuum at least once a week for general cleaning maintenance. If you discover a spot or if one occurs, you will want to clean that up immediately. Refer to some of our other articles on our website for various spot treatment suggestions. And for lightly soiled areas, you will want to have them cleaned professionally every 12-18 months at a minimum.
For normal soiled areas, families with children and elderly, you will want to vacuum at least once a week. You will also want to spot clean these carpets daily or a soon as the spots are noticed. For normal soiled areas, a professional carpet cleaning is recommended every 6-12 months. Again, these are recommendations.
For heavy soiled carpet areas, those families with pets and smoking, you will want to vacuum your carpets approximately 2-4 times per week. You will also want to spot clean daily or as soon as the spots are noticed as with all other “soil-rated” carpets. For these traffic areas with heavy soil /exposure to heavy soil, you will want to have them professionally cleaned every 3-6 months.
Finally for extreme conditions of heavy traffic, large families and multiple pets, you will want to vacuum on a daily basis. As with other traffic areas, you will want to spot clean daily or as soon as the spot is noticed. And with extremely vulnerable conditions, you will want to have them cleaned professionally every 2-3 months.
Once again, these are recommendations for the various traffic soiled carpet surfaces.
