When it comes to keeping carpet and flooring clean and tidy, homeowners wonder how often they should vacuum. The answer comes down to one simple factor: how much foot traffic your carpet endures on a daily basis. Below, we’ll go over a few factors that make a difference in the cleanliness of your carpet, and of course, we’ll tell you how often you should be vacuuming.
Typically, carpet should be vacuumed about once a week. But the factors laid out below will mean that you’ll have to vacuum a bit more frequently.
Pets certainly play a role in making our carpet more dirty. From muddy paws, to urine and feces stains, it can feel as if you’re constantly cleaning up after them! Vacuum twice a week to pick up the extra dirt and dander that our loving, adorable pets leave behind- and don’t sweat it, as a professional cleaning company can always come in and help out!
With children running around the house in their dirty shoes (or bare feet), it can be difficult to keep your carpet clean! Vacuum twice weekly, or try teaching your children to leave their dirty shoes at the entrance of your home; this can cut down on the amount of dirt and mud that’s tracked all over your flooring! It’s a good practice.
