Stains

  • Stains are one of the main reasons why people replace their carpet. Over time things happen. Food and drink get spilled. Dirt gets tracked in.  If you have pets than possibly pet urine.  All of these things get on the carpet and possibly into the padding. If you have had the same carpet for a long time and there are stains than it is most likely time to replace it.

Smells

  • Carpeting will absorb odors that penetrates deep into the fibers and even the padding if not cleaned and cared for properly. Proper cleaning and care is critical to keeping away odors from your carpet.  If you have pets when replacing your carpet you may want to consider a pet protect type of carpeting and padding.

Wear

  • The older your carpet is the more wear it will usually have.  If your carpet has small tears in it they can be repaired.  The older the carpeting and the more wear and tears you have than it is probably time to replace it.  If you have polyester carpeting than it will typically matt down and lose its form over time.  Nylon on the other hand tends to be tougher and stand up better to wear.  If after a deep professional cleaning it still does not look that great than it is probably time to replace it.

Replacing your carpet will need to be done eventually.  When you are ready to start looking give us a call.  We will come to your home and help you with the next decision. What kind of carpeting should I get now?

Color and Texture is becoming more Prominent
Some of the new carpet trends are geared toward tweed colors and subtle patterns.
Softer fibers and extremely stain resistant yarns are also on the rise, Many tend to
coordinate easily with designs and patterns in other furnishings. This new style of carpet
is changing the perception of how carpet is perceived as not only a background to
showcase other furnishing but also can bring the focal point to the carpet itself.
