Do you vacuum your house once a week and scrub your carpet with floor cleaners? Are you still not able to see any difference? Don’t worry; carpets are not an easy thing to manage, especially when you have kids and pets in your house. Despite extensive cleaning, if you need to clean your carpet, it’s time to consider carpet removal.
Why is it high time that you consider carpet removal?
We have mentioned the top three times when you should consider carpet removal. So, without any further ado, let’s get started.
- Extensive cleaning
Unfortunately, accidents are a part of our life. People spill their drinks, bring in the dirt with their shoes, drop food bites on the floor, and whatnot. If you have children, they are more prone to get your carpet dirty. Your work increases when you have got animals in your house.
It is not easy to get rid of dirt from the dirt. Small dirt particles are not easy to get rid of as they hide in the fibers of the carpet. These can only be cleaned with the help of professional cleaning tools. However, even professional tools cannot clean some portions of the carpet.
If this is the case with you, you must consider buying a new carpet for your home.
No doubt, your carpet becomes a magnet when it comes to attracting dust mites, pet dander, dead skin particles, mold, or any other such allergens. These allergens are likely to cause allergic reactions, especially to your children. Their immune systems are more sensitive as compared to adults.
The carpet fibers trap these allergens in places that are hard to reach and clean. If your carpet is getting too old and dirty, it’s high time that you invest in a new carpet.
- Old age
When compared to other kinds of flooring options, carpet has a shorter lifespan. You are required to replace your carpet every eight to ten years. However, if you are taking proper care of your carpet, you can extend it’s life by a couple of years more. But, it still needs to be removed at some point or the other.
You will come to know that it’s time to replace your carpet by its appearance and also smell. Some common signs that indicate that you need carpet removal are:
- Stubborn stains on your carpet that are not going despite hardcore cleaning
- Wear and tear (when you see significant tears in your carpet that don’t look good)
- If you are sensing lingering smell despite deep clearing
- Or, increased allergy symptoms as older carpets have more allergens
If you have made up your mind to remove your old carpet, you can contact professional carpet removal services to get your work done. Doing it yourself can be stressful, time-consuming, and unsafe, especially if the carpet in your house is glued down.
