Is it time to get rid of your old carpet or can it be saved? There are a few things to consider when deciding if it is time for new carpeting. You will want to consider cost. How much would it cost to replace your carpet verses utilizing a professional carpet cleaning service to restore it to an improved condition.
If you have a surface stain on your carpet it can likely be treated with a spot remover. However, if the stain penetrates deeper into the carpet and padding or if you have several stains, then it might be necessary to get a professional carpet cleaning. Professional cleaners use heavy duty extraction equipment to remove stains that get deep into carpet fibers. Having a carpeting cleaning at least once a year helps to maintain the lifespan of your carpet. If you find that you have multiple stains that cannot be removed with professional cleaning and you keep moving your furniture or rugs around to hide the stains, then you may want to consider getting new carpeting.
Wear and Tear
Sometimes there is too much wear and tear on carpeting and there is just no getting around it that the carpet needs to be replaced. Certain types of polyester carpeting can start getting matted and lose form over time that may not be able to be fixed. However, matted down nylon carpeting is more resilient and can retain its shape better after a professional carpet cleaning. Even high-traffic areas, like hallways, living rooms and stairs can be revitalized with a professional cleaning. If you have small tears or rips in your carpeting, you can fix them yourself or hire a carpet professional to make the repair. However, large rips and tears is a sign that your carpet needs to be replaced.
If your carpeting smells, it could be for a number of reasons. Bad odors can be caused by pets or a lack of cleaning. Of course, the first solution is a professional cleaning because it helps to remove odors and allergens, and professional cleaners also use deodorizers to freshen the air. However, if you have developed mold or mildew underneath your carpeting, it is time for it to be replaced.
Allergens and dust get caught in your carpeting and over time can trigger your allergies. Regular vacuuming and a professional carpet cleaning can help to remove allergens and keep your allergies under control. However, you find your allergies are still bothering you, it is possible that your carpeting could be the cause and it may be time for it to be replaced.
