How often should I vacuum my carpets?

Vacuuming your home can almost feel like one of those never-ending tasks; a battle which is fought up-hill. For many people, it’s often a little unclear as to how frequently they should be vacuuming their homes – and this is completely understandable! A simple search of, “how often should I vacuum my carpets” will provide you with many differing opinions on the matter.

The truth is, knowing how often to vacuum your home is dependent upon many variables, and so it’s difficult to just provide an optimal number for every household.

What impacts on the frequency of needing to vacuum?

When knowing how often to vacuum your home, it’s first important to consider the factors can affect the state of your carpets and therefore the frequency of vacuuming. Such factors include:

  • Size of your home
  • Location
  • Foot traffic
  • Whether or not you have pets
  • How often your windows are kept open

When taking into consideration the above factors, it’s clear to see why you can’t just recommend the same solution for everyone.

So then, how often should I vacuum my carpets?

Let’s assume that you have a medium sized home which is located in a built-up residential area.  Your home experiences a moderate amount of foot traffic (this could be 3-4 people living at home), you don’t have pets and you like to keep a few windows open to help circulate the air.  This type of home would have a moderate exposure to invaders such as dust, pollen and dirt.  Generally speaking, if you find yourself in this situation it’d be best to vacuum 1-2 times a week.

If you believe your home is less exposed to dust and dirt, then you could potentially get away with vacuuming just once a week.  If you have indoor pets or your home is occupied by more than four people, we would recommend vacuuming at least 3 times a week.

What if you feel as though vacuuming alone isn’t enough?

If you feel as though no matter how often you are vacuuming your carpets that you still can’t get rid of all the dirt and dust, it might be a good time to consider having them professionally steam cleaned.  Professional carpet steam cleaning can generally be performed anywhere from 1-6 times a year, depending on the state of your carpets.  If you’d like to know the recommended frequency to have your carpets steam cleaned, feel free to speak with one of our cleaning professionals today. You may call us on 0400 634 609 or leave us an enquiry HERE.
