Chem-Dry of Michiana recommends a professional, deep cleaning of your carpets at least once every 12 to 18 months. However, some situations may warrant more frequent cleanings. Here are a few scenarios where you might want to consider more frequent professional carpet cleaning:
👣 𝗛𝗶𝗴𝗵-𝗧𝗿𝗮𝗳𝗳𝗶𝗰 𝗔𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘀 - There are likely some areas of your carpet that receive heavier foot traffic, such as hallways or living rooms. These areas are more prone to dirt, stains and wear. You may want to have these areas professionally cleaned more frequently, such as every 6 to 9 months.
🐶 𝗣𝗲𝘁𝘀 - If you have pets that shed fur or have accidents on the carpet, it's a good idea to schedule professional carpet cleaning more often. Pet hair, dander and stains can accumulate and become embedded in the carpet fibers, requiring more frequent cleaning, typically every 3 to 6 months. it also helps tremendously if you vacuum frequently to pick up this fur and dander 2-3 times a week.
