There are six questions you should ask yourself before you clean your carpet once again.
1. Is my carpet showing signs of wear and tear? Matted and torn carpet is a sign that your carpet has seen better days. Once the tufts fall over, they do not regain their shape. Heavily trafficked walkways show wear and tear the quickest, but are also the hardest areas to hide.
2. Is my carpet permanently stained? Almost all carpet now comes with anti-stain treatments either applied or infused. While these help resist stains, they are not completely stain proof. Over time, they may loose their ability to fight off stains completely. Stains such as red wine, mustard, bleach, plant food, and tea are tough stains to remove.
3. Are my stains caused by substances that are a health hazard? Stains caused be vomit, feces, urine, mold and mildew could be a health hazard. Cleaning these might not remove these completely. Most cleaners only penetrate to the base of the carpet, so that the binding of the carpet is not compromised.
4. Is your carpet more than 10 years old? Most carpet has a life expectancy of 10 years if properly cared for. Lower grade carpets will start to show major signs of wear and tear much sooner than 10 years. Over time carpets will wrinkle, tear, mat and show color fade.
5. Is your pad worn out? The pad is the support for the carpet. Once the pad is worn out, your carpet will begin to show signs of wear and tear quickly.
