Simple Ways You Can Raise the Longevity of Your Carpet

Simple Ways You Can Raise the Longevity of Your Carpet

Here is what you can do to get your carpet to last longer.

Did you just finish installing a brand new carpet in your home? Maybe you purchased a home recently, and there’s a high-quality carpet already there. Regardless of how you acquired your carpeting, it’s important to help make it last as long as possible. Carpeting that isn’t well maintained won’t last as long, meaning you’ll have to replace it much sooner. Here is what you can do to get your carpet to last longer.

Begin At Your Door

It’s beneficial to your carpet if you can minimize how much exposure it gets to outside materials. To put it another way, you should take your shoes off once you get to the door. This limits how much dirt from outside gets dragged into your house, which in turn prevents the carpet you have from getting burdened by the dirt as well. Dirt can cause staining or even mold to form, depending on the type of debris you track inside.

Can’t Go Wrong With Cleaning Your Carpet

Cleaning is one of the biggest precautions you can take to preserve your carpet, and it’s, fortunately, one of the steps you can control. Stain removal is an integral part of the cleaning process, and the longer that dirt resides on your carpet, the higher the chances are for stains to start forming.

The key to removing stains is to address them early on. The longer they stick, the more resilient they become, so be sure to apply stain remover as soon as you see stains form.

Vacuuming Your Carpet is Needed

Not every homeowner realizes just how important vacuuming your carpet is. It’s a step in the cleaning process that helps undo the harm that comes from foot traffic because the fibers in the carpet get lifted back into their proper places. Also, you clean up debris that could weaken your carpet over time.

Move Furniture Around

Heavy furniture leaves dents on your carpet, and discoloration can happen as a result of dust settling. To limit the negative impacts of heavy furniture, try moving pieces of furniture around now and then. This should be done one time every few months so that no single spot on your carpet gets pressured too much for too long.
