Carpet Cleaning: How often should I vacuum?

Carpet Cleaning: So, how often should I vacuum? You just bought new carpet, or your carpet is in great shape. You want it to have a long life span, how often do you vacuum? Will vacuuming allow you to sustain the “newness” of your carpet?

One of the most important aspects in taking care of carpet is frequent and thorough vacuuming. Vacuuming is a vital component to prolonging carpet vitality, so vacuuming, especially in areas that receive high foot traffic is vital for removing all types of soil.

Primarily, there are 3 types of soil that are found in carpet:
Dry particulate soil that are native to desert places like Green Valley. These are soil like sand. These also contain animal hair and vegetation residue.
Animal, mineral and vegetables soils from either indoor or outdoors.
And Water-soluble soils like food, drinks, and garbage. All of these can easily be vacuumed away but will eventually leave stains and wear on your carpet.

The vast majority of soil in any carpet will be the first type of dry particulate and the most effective way to remove the soil is through thorough vacuuming and monthly carpet cleaning. In order that your carpet cleaning goes well, it is highly beneficial that you vacuum often to eliminate particles and debris. If not, this soil will work its way into your carpet and scratch the carpet fibers as you walk on your carpet causing damage. This will allow traffic patterns and shading issues to develop and those will prematurely wear your carpet. So frequently vacuuming your carpet with monthly cleanings will not only remove soil but will deter from spotting, discoloration and stains.
