Have Your Carpet Checked

Regular maintenance is essential to prolong the life of your carpet. How long do you use your carpet? How often do you have your carpet cleaned? Here are some key points to consider:

Lifespan of Carpets:

    • Carpets have varying average lifespans based on quality, material, and foot usage.
    • Rugs of superior quality have a lifespan of five to fifteen years
    • Ten years of use can cause thread wear, color changes, and cushion degradation that can cause aging in even the least used rooms

Maintenance Tips:

    • Regular Cleaning: To get rid of dirt and debris, vacuum your carpet often. Having it cleaned every three months or so is preferable.
    • Quick Stain Treatment: To avoid irreversible damage, take care of spills and stains right away.
    • Area Rugs: To safeguard high-traffic areas, strategically use area rugs.
    • Professional Cleaning: To keep your carpet looking nice and hygienic, schedule routine professional carpet cleanings.

Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Carpet:

    • Stains: Stains that won’t go away on their own are a sign that you need to replace your carpet. These stubborn stains can be difficult to get rid of, especially if they’re hard to remove. If you’re having trouble getting rid of stubborn stains like bleach or plant food, your carpet may need to be replaced. 
    • Water Damage – If you’ve been soaking your carpet for over 72 hours, you’ll want to replace it to avoid mold or mildew buildup. 
    • Wear & Tear – If your carpet starts to show signs of wear and tear, such as excess matting or threadbare areas, you may need to replace it. 
    • Odor – Persistent unpleasant odors, especially after a thorough cleaning, could be a sign that a new carpet is needed. 
    • Deteriorated padding – Deteriorating padding can affect your carpet’s performance and comfort. Increased allergy symptoms – If you notice that your allergy symptoms are getting worse, it could be because of an old carpet. 
    • Age – If your carpet is older than a few years, it could be due to the age of the carpet.

Remember, a well-maintained carpet both enhances your home’s aesthetics and contributes to a healthier indoor environment.
