How often do you shampoo your carpets?

I just got a carpet shampooer and the carpet is taking FOREVER to dry. It's not that big of deal I guess, But it makes me wonder how often it's going to be feasible to actually shampoo them when it takes so long to dry.

  • We usually shampoo ours once or twice a year. We do it in the spring to clean up all the winter ice melt/sand. It's best to do it on a day that's not too humid, you can have windows open and if possible have fans on. (the ceiling fan helps in our living room) We may have to do spot clean ups when the kids get sick if they don't make it to the barrel/bathroom in time. In fact, that's why we got our own shampooer. My youngest was always spittimg up every year. (and the kids alyways seemed to get sick at least once a year when they were little)
