WHEN IT IS NECESSARY TO REPLACE THE CARPETS AND RUGS?
Carpets and rugs are the part of your home decor, so they often witness heavy foot traffic, muddy paws, wine spills and other wear and tear. Therefore, sooner or later, you have to replace your residential or commercial carpets. It would be hard for you to notice little changes in your decor pieces over time. It is important to evaluate the status of your “Carpets and Rugs“ from time to time to keep them look fresh and hygienic. We have put together some of the signs which help you to decide whether to replace the carpets or not:
Stains: A home is always meant to be a comfortable and cozy place to live which can be maintained by laying carpets. However, it is all well to create a warm place for you but your art pieces take a hit over the time with accidental stains and spills. Sometimes, it’s easy to remove some stains but it is nearly impossible to get rid of stubborn patches with DIY cleaning methods. Hence, if you are unable to cover up these stains, it might be a right time to change your flooring.
Bad Odour: It would be really a bad feeling to get in a home with smelly carpet or rug. There might not be any stains but there are some substances that got erased over the surface but get trapped in the piles such as pet’s urine, baby food and may more. You might clean the spots but smell can still remain in the fibers which may give birth to odour which can’t be removed easily and you need to replace the carpet.
Bald Patches: The carpets and rugs see lot of use over the time if you have high foot traffic in your house, kids playing games over the carpets or doing the dance rehearsals on the rugs of living room. All these activities can result in carpet wearing and bald patches. Some of the carpets are slightly more prone to matting and cannot be restored and you have to change them in the end.
Lost Cushion: While purchasing any flooring option, whether a carpet or rug, the key factor people check for is soft cushioning of the carpets and rugs beneath your feet. The padding under the surface of your carpet helps in providing comfort and acoustics. If a carpet loses its cushioning, it would give you feeling of uneven and uncomfortable walking. It could be an indicator that the condition of padding is getting deteriorated and it needs to be changed.
Hence, these are some signs that tell you to change your “Antique Carpets“ and rugs. If you have a home with 2-4 residents or pets, you can see the signs of aging and fraying after about 4-5 years. However, lifespan of your décor pieces depends upon the type of carpet material, time of installation as well as foot traffic. Therefore, it is important to maintain and clean them regularly and to replace them as soon as they needed to be.
