The IICRC, the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification is an agency that trains and monitors professional carpet cleaning technicians throughout the United States. They have formulated some guidelines and recommendations regarding how often you should have your carpets cleaned.
In general, all carpets should be cleaned at least one time every year. Even if you live alone and take your shoes off when you enter your home, dust, dirt, pollen and other debris enters your home on your clothing and through open doors and windows. In spite of your best efforts, this debris will settle in your carpeting and will be ground deep into the carpet fibers as you walk around your home on a daily basis.
If you have a pet, children, or are a smoker, this increases the amount of pollutants that will be introduced to your indoor environment. If this describes your family situation, the IICRC recommends that you have your carpets cleaned twice a year.
What if you have multiple pets, multiple smokers, a large family or a combination of these factors? To keep your carpets truly clean, you should have them cleaned with every changing season, four times a year.
