CARPET CLEANING FREQUENCY GUIDE

shadow

Did you know that according to the Institute of Inspection , Cleaning and Restoration (IICRC) you should have your carpets cleaned AT LEAST 1 TIME PER YEAR depending on the amount of traffic . The IICRC is a professional association that trains & monitors cleaning technicians throughout North America. To help you decide how often your carpets need to be cleaned, I have included a graph from the IICRC S100 Standards. These standards provide the guidelines used by the Carpet Industry to give your carpet the longest life possible.

Cleaning Frequency Guidelines
From the IICRC Standard for Carpet Cleaning S001-1991
Traffic Soil Rating Carpet Owner/Maintainer Professional Carpet Cleaner/Restorer

Extreme Conditions (large families, multiple pets) Daily Daily or as soon as the spots are noticed Traffic lanes every 2 to 3 months Quarterly(4 times annually
This table is intended to serve as a guideline for recommended cleaning frequencies from a public health perspective. Originally published in a letter from the U.S. EPA, this schedule has been adopted as part of the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification’s (IICRC) Carpet Cleaning Standard S001-1991. Complete copies of the IICRC Carpet Cleaning Standard can be obtained by calling the Institute at 360-693-5675. (From: U.S. EPA Letter, January, 1989)
