When you decide it’s time to call a professional carpet cleaner into your Germantown home, one of the initial things the carpet cleaning technician will do is vacuum the carpets. Vacuuming is one of the first steps to clean carpet, but it’s not something that should only be left to the professionals. In fact, that’s an absurd idea, but it does raise a few questions: How often should you vacuum your home and what happens when you don’t vacuum enough?
How often should you vacuum your Germantown home?
Let’s start with the frequency question. The vague answer is frequently. What exactly does frequently mean? Well, it depends on a few key variables like traffic, indoor air quality (i.e. smokers, pets, etc.) and type of carpet.
One of the world’s top carpet and flooring manufacturer is Shaw Industries. Chances are, you or someone you know has some sort of Shaw Flooring in their home. When it comes to vacuum suggestions, Shaw offers these tips:
- Vacuum the traffic lanes daily
- Vacuum the entire area twice a week
- Vacuum the traffic lanes twice a week
- Vacuum the entire area once per week
A key caveat to this is whether you have pets. If you have pets in your Germantown home, vacuuming should be on your daily to-do list. Having pets in your home also means that you are susceptible to pet stains and odors.

What happens when you don’t vacuum your home?
The short answer to this question is that your home’s carpet will quickly look dirty and dingy. The long answer has to do with your health. Not vacuuming the carpet enough in your Germantown TN home will cause your carpet to build up unhealthy allergens, thus impacting your indoor air quality.
Did you know that humans shed millions of dead skin cells every day? They don’t all fall off at once, but instead, you leave a trail as you go about your daily life. If you want to know the real details, you actually shed around 30,000 skin cells every minute. In fact, when you think about skin shedding, you probably think about snakes; however, the truth is that humans shed and replace their skin more often than snakes do! There’s a fun fact for family trivia night.
Aside from human skin cells, your carpet becomes a landing zone for pet dander, bacteria, dust mites, decaying insects and mold spores. If the skin cell “fun fact” didn’t make you want to reach for the Dyson more frequently, then these other carpet dwellers might scare you into not going a day without vacuuming your entire Germantown home.
If you have noticed that you seem to be sneezing more in your home, or that you have had a runny nose that has lasted longer than that case of Kleenex from Costco, it might be time to call in a professional carpet cleaner for an indoor allergen treatment.
