  • Never :) we have no carpets. Only tile and hardwood. When we have carpets though we had them professionally cleaned yearly.

  • The last place I lived in I would use a steam cleaner every three months because the rugs needed it after that amount of time. This place has no carpeting.

  • We have our own steam cleaner...since we only have carpet in the bedrooms (and the kids don't play in their rooms, they have a basement playroom), I only have to steam clean them once a year.

  • I don't have carpeting but I have my tile and grout done twice a year.

  • I do my own once every other month. That may sound a bit too often but we only have carpet in my DD's room and in our office/3rd bedroom. Both have a lot of foot traffic and all kinds of mess, so I like to keep them super clean because it totally grosses me out when I would think what my daughter was crawling on! Maybe I'm still nesting even though my DD is 17 months! lol
