Doesn’t carpet get dirty quicker once it has been cleaned?

Absolutely not! Carpet cleaners who leave dirt attracting residues have created a misconception there. When carpets are cleaned by a true knowledgeable operator there will be no bad residues that dirt can stick to creating rapid re-soiling. All carpet manufacturers recommend regular cleaning, usually every 3 months to 1 year. Abrasive soil hides deep in carpet fibres and is the primary cause of wear. It scratches and dulls your carpet long before it is visibly dirty.
