How Often Should I Have My Carpets Cleaned?

Vacuuming often will help reduce dust buildup, but for the best results we advise homeowners to have their carpets professionally cleaned at least once a year. There are several factors that may increase how frequently you should deep clean your carpets:

  • Do you have pets?
  • Do you have allergies?
  • Does someone smoke?
  • How heavy is the foot traffic?

If you have pets or children in your home, or if someone has allergies, your carpet should be cleaned as often as every three months. This allows you to maintain a clean and healthy environment by removing odors, stains, and allergens before they have a chance to build up.

Light shades of carpet will need to be cleaned and protected more often. It's important to be proactive in your carpet maintenance; you want to clean your carpets before the traffic areas become visible. With light carpet colors, fiber damage and traffic wear patterns are much more noticeable. For these reasons, we recommend cleaning light shades of carpet every six months.

No matter what color carpet you have, The Color King will develop the best schedule to keep your carpets like new.
