The carpet you put in your home is likely to last anywhere between 5 to 15 years. Although your lifestyle and factors such as having pets or young children may seem like the final determinant of your carpet’s life expectancy, how you care for the carpet is more of an indicator than anything. Caring for your carpet correctly can allow for beautiful flooring for fifteen years, here’s how:
We recommend vacuuming your carpets twice a week. This may seem like a lot, but when you don’t keep up with routine vacuuming, your carpets will begin to show wear a lot sooner and become difficult to maintain. When you are vacuuming, don’t push the vacuum around too quickly. Pulling your vacuum back towards you is the most effective time for sucking up any dirt or other particles. You should remember to push the vacuum in a variety of different directions to help break up anything trapped below the surface level.
The best way to treat a stain is to treat it before it becomes one! Allowing a stain to sit will give it time to set in, which can make it very difficult to remove. Remember to blot a spill instead of trying to rub it out. Rubbing or scrubbing your carpet will result in wear and tear. When working with a stain, use an all-white towel or paper towel to avoid dye from a colored towel rubbing off on the carpet. Always blot the stained area until it is dried completely; letting liquids sit can cause bacteria or possibly even mold.
