How Long will a Carpet Stay

Home Improvement,Family & Parenting,Fashion & Cosmetics
Carpet is usually purchased because it is warm, soft, inviting, and feels good on bare feet. But since carpet can be a pricey investment for homeowners, it’s reasonable to want that investment to last and continue to look good. By implementing good cleaning techniques and proper frequency of maintenance, your carpet's life can be greatly extended.

Your carpet basically needs four types of cleaning:

1. Vacuuming 2. Spot Cleaning 3. Interim Cleaning 4. Restorative Cleaning


A first step to prolong the life and appearance of carpet is to not undervalue vacuuming. Dry vacuuming is the best way to remove dry soils; as much as 80 to 95% can be removed if done on a routine schedule. Dry soil - particles such as dust, dirt, sand, clay, gravel, even animal or vegetable fibers - is removed most easily and economically with dry vacuuming. It is important to remove particle soils before they sift downward into the carpet's pile and become more difficult to remove, or damage carpet fibers. Vacuuming with a CRI-approved vacuum helps clean carpet effectively and prevents particles like dust, dander, and other bio-pollutants from being redistributed back in the indoor air, potentially contributing to respiratory ailments and allergies.

Spot Cleaning

Removing spots quickly will aid in preserving the life and appearance of carpet. When dealing with a liquid spill, blotting - not rubbing or scrubbing - with a clean white towel will help to remove much of the spill. tested cleaning solutions to improve your chances of removing a spot without harming carpet. Be sure to note any warnings and follow the directions stated by the cleaning solution manufacturer.

Interim Cleaning

Interim cleaning helps maintain the "surface" of carpet, as well as improve its appearance. As stated earlier, dry vacuuming does help remove a large percentage of soils, but not all. Some soils and particles are “sticky” and remain in the fibers, causing carpet to look dirty or dingy. Still, interim cleaning should not be viewed as a replacement for restorative cleaning. If done regularly, however, interim cleaning can help extend the period between restorative cleanings.

Restorative Cleaning

To get the most life out of carpet, a carpet owner should include restorative cleaning. This is best handled by qualified professionals using a variety of methods. The deepest clean can be reached by this level of maintenance. Nevertheless, how often a carpet owner needs to have has his/her carpet professionally cleaned depends on the level of daily maintenance and effectiveness of interim cleaning.


The useful life of your carpet can be greatly extended with proper care and routine maintenance. The following chart provides general recommendations for frequency intervals.
