How Often Should I Have My Carpets Professionally Steam Cleaned? Victoria Carpet Care


Carpet manufactures and experts recommend that carpets be professionally deep cleaned every 6 to 12 months.  Carpet is the biggest air filter in your home.  Regular deep down cleaning will remove tremendous amounts of dirt and soil along with dust mites, dust mite feces, (which many people are allergic to) bacteria, smoke, pollens and many other pollutants from your carpet.   Regular cleaning will also help your carpets last years longer by removing tremendous amounts of particulate matter from your carpets. This particulate matter (missed by vacuuming) is like sand paper cuts your carpet fibers every time you walk across your carpets. Regular cleaning, every 6 to 12 months, will help your carpets last longer, improve your homes indoor air quality to help give you a healthier home and sparking clean carpet.



The basic rule is that dirt and grit should NOT be allowed to settle into the carpet. Walking on dirt and grit that has settled into your carpet causes premature wear and the appearance of traffic lanes. Don’t wait till your carpet looks like it needs cleaning!!!

Vacuum traffic lanes EVERY DAY.  Using a slow back and forth motion allows for the best dirt and grit removal.  Use a professional rug rake on the traffic lanes twice a month before vacuuming to increase the dirt and grit removal.  A rug rake loosens sharp particulate matter.  Ask for a recommendation on a vacuum that is right for your home.
