How to Extend the Life of Your Carpet

The carpet you have in your home looks great now. However, in a few years, it might look old and worn if you don’t take the time to maintain it properly. You might even be forced to replace your carpet sooner than you should have to if you fail you take care of it. Here are some simple ways to extend the life of your carpet.

Vacuum your carpet at least once a week.

No matter how careful you are about not walking on carpeting with shoes or not walking on carpeting in general, it’s going to get dirt, dust, and more on it. Therefore, it’s important for you to vacuum your carpet at least once every week, if not more. Vacuuming your carpet will lift dirt from it and prevent it from working its way deep down into the carpeting.

Spot clean your carpet immediately if it’s ever stained.

Spills are, unfortunately, going to take place on your carpet. All it takes is one accident for wine, coffee, juice, or some other liquid to stain your carpeting. Fortunately, you can usually lift stains from a carpet right away, if you act quickly. Invest in a good carpet cleaning solution and use it at the first sign of trouble. Try and discourage people from eating and drinking near your carpet as well to prevent stains from happening in the first place.

Rearrange furniture that sits on top of carpeting periodically.

When is the last time you rearranged the furniture in your living room, dining room, den, bedroom, or other area of your home? Over time, furniture can cause indentations in your carpet that can be tough to get out. If furniture sits in one spot for too long, it can also lead to your carpet wearing out unevenly. You might have to replace it even though a large portion of it is still in great condition.
