How often should you have your carpet cleaned?

Your first answer to this question may be whenever necessary; that can be true depending on your carpet cleaning needs and circumstances. On an average to help maintain a healthy home or business environment, you should have your carpets cleaned twice a year, once every six months. Germs, bacteria, and dust-mites can accumulate pretty fast possibly causing allergies or respitory conditions if left uncleaned. If you happen to have heavy traffic, a full house, three or more children and/or pets, you may need to have your carpets cleaned three to four times a year, once every four months.
