Carpeting requires regular maintenance to look and perform its best. And part of that maintenance is a regular schedule of vacuuming.

The truth is that there are no hard and fast rules or a single answer. Instead, vacuuming depends on several factors, which we will focus on to address the question.

If you have pets, you'll need to vacuum far more

Most pets shed, so you'll need to vacuum more often to keep dander allergens at bay. But even among shedding pets, some shed more than others.

Children can also create situations that demand more floor covering care. Even busy adults that work primarily outdoors may create a need for many vacuum sessions.

With less traffic, less vacuuming is common


If you are on the other end of the spectrum, you can expect only to vacuum a couple of times a week. Generating less traffic, dust, and debris, means you don't have to vacuum as often.

The same can be true if you use runners or area rugs in spaces where traffic is heaviest. They can catch and trap dirt to keep it from reaching your flooring.

Don't forget that certain one-time events will require vacuuming your carpet flooring more often. For example, holidays, family get-togethers, and birthday parties generate a lot of fodder.
