I had my carpets cleaned today! First time since we have lived in this house (we've been here 3 years now).... I used to do them twice a year in the old house we used to live in.

How often do you have your carpets cleaned?

3-4 times a year!? I find it quite expensive to do that.... maybe the company I'm using is a ripoff?

We usually steam clean our carpets once a year. We just do it ourselves. We actually had new carpet put in back in 2008 (been here since 2004). The sales lady told us if you do it more than once every 18 months or so that it can ruin the carpet by flattening the fibers. I don't know if that's true or not.

I probably clean ours once a year, unless something happens that I have to do it more often (like my son taking off his poopy diaper and making a mess of the living room). I have a small carpet cleaner that I use instead of hiring or renting one. I also heard that cleaning more than once a year is bad, but can't remember if it was because of the carpet fibers breaking down or the carpet backing and pad breaking down.

I do it atleast twice a year. I have to do it. My carpet is old( 11 years) and with 3 kids, it gets very dirty. I also just finished up potty training so there was urine stains.. My dh also works in a steel mill and he brings in tons of dirt.
I figure, what can it hurt. My carpet is in bad shape already. It was very cheap carpet when new. It actually helps my carpet look and feel better
