How Often Should I Clean My Carpet?

We get this question a lot. Many carpet manufacturers and the IICRC recommend that carpets are professionally cleaned at least twice per year, depending on how much wear and tear your carpet receives from foot traffic, children, pets, smokers and other contributors to dirt, stains and carpet wear. The following chart, provided by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration (CleanTrust), will help you determine how often you’ll need to have your carpets cleaned:

Missoula Green Carpet Cleaning uses steam cleaning or hot water extraction for lifting dirt and stains. Carpet manufacturers and carpet fiber producers recommend hot water extraction because it’s the only method that deep cleans the carpets, leaving them fresh and contaminant free.

Among the manufacturers that recommend hot water extraction are Shaw Carpet Ind, the largest carpet manufacturer in the world. DuPont and many other manufacturers actually require the hot water extraction method for carpet cleaning to honor their warranties.
