Carpet is soft and warm on your feet. It gives your feet a comfortable surface to walk on. Most people replace their carpet every three to five years. However, did you know that if you take good care of your carpet, it can last up to ten years?
So, what are the best ways to extend the lifespan of your carpet?
There is a common misconception that having regular carpet cleaning will wear them out faster, so carpets should only be cleaned every now and then. The truth is that not only will having your carpets cleaned regularly keep them looking good, but it will also reduce the wear and tear of the carpets and keep your family healthy. Carpet cleaning improves air quality by removing airborne particles that have become lodged in your carpet. How often you should have your carpets cleaned depends on the amount of use they get. If you have a home full of pets and people, your regular carpet cleanings will need to be spaced closer together.
In addition to regular carpet cleaning, steps that you can take to extend the lifespan of your carpet include vacuuming on a regular basis (daily for high-traffic areas) and prompt removal of stains. When removing stains, remember that each type of stain is different, and therefore you may need to use different methods for complete stain removal. Removing stains as soon as possible will give you a better chance of getting the entire stain out.
