6 Tips to Help Extend the Life of Your Carpet

6 Tips to Help Extend the Life of Your Carpet

Investing in new carpet is quite the purchase, and can be a lot of work! Before ruining your perfectly wonderful carpet causing a need for replacement, let us share some beneficial tips on things you can do to extend your carpet's life.


1: Vacuum Your Carpet Regularly

Vacuuming your carpet frequently is essential in extending your carpet's life. With how much dirt, food, hair, skin, germs, dust and other nasties fall into your carpet fibers each day, vacuuming once a week goes a long way! Vacuuming regularly will make a world of difference in maintaining clean carpet. Black spots will be less likely to occur, and even the air you breathe in your home contain fewer allergens.


2: Use Mats and Rugs

Mats and rugs can be a life-saving hack when used in high traffic areas. They are perfect to place in hallways that get walked on a million times a week, and in doorways to wipe your feet on before stepping on the carpet itself. If your rug gets worn out to the point where it needs to be replaced, it is easier and cheaper to replace a rug than the entire carpet!


3: Remove Shoes When Inside

Standing true to this rule of "no shoes in the house" will work wonders in keeping dirt and other unwanted nasties from entering into your carpet fibers. So much dirt gets stuck onto the bottom of shoes from walking outside, it is worth simply removing them before coming in the house. You don't want your carpet to end up looking as dingy as the sidewalk out front of your home!


4: Rearrange Furniture

This unique tip is actually quite useful! If you think about it, the carpet underneath your furniture is likely incredibly clean due to being untouched, while the carpet between your couch and coffee table sees feet all day long. Simply rearranging your furniture every once in a while to change which areas receive high foot traffic will help slow down your carpet's wear and tear.


5: Treat Spills and Stains Right Away

Allowing stains to sit on your carpet will cause much more damage in the long run than just cleaning them up right away. Though life gets busy and you don't have much time in the day, the fact remains that the longer a spill sits, the harder it will be to get out. Save yourself some time, grief, and money by taking action and cleaning up accidents quickly. You will thank yourself later.
