According to the Carpet and Rug Institute, it’s best to vacuum your carpet at least twice a week. If you can’t vacuum your entire house this often, at least vacuum the high traffic areas twice a week. Vacuuming regularly will keep soil and dirt from getting ground into the carpet. Remember to move the vacuum slowly across the carpet to give it time in each area to remove the dirt and fuzz.
