Recently one of our clients from Carroll County, Maryland asked: “How often should I vacuum my carpets, really?” We think this is a great question, after all carpets can take a beating during the week, they get walked on, played on, laid on. Let us put to bed the question of vacuuming frequency!

Let us begin with there is no right or wrong answer to this question, but there are some guidelines and some best practices that we want to pass on. There is a general formula that you can follow to assess how often to vacuum each room; basically, you vacuum that room or area as many times per week as the number of people that walk around that area. For example: In a child’s bedroom with just one child you would vacuum it once a week, if the room is shared by two children, bump that to twice a week.

We understand that for high traffic areas around you home this formula could mean multiple cleaning a day, which, let’s face it, isn’t really doable for the average person. For these areas we recommend a twice weekly vacuum to keep it clean and safe for your family and pets.

If a twice daily vacuuming makes you cringe, or if you’re too busy to maintain some normal household chores like vacuuming, dusting, and dishes, why not let Immaculate Clean help?
