It’s time to start making those spring cleaning lists. At the top of most lists will be vacuuming and deep cleaning the carpets. Sometimes, however, regular cleaning won’t work, and you might need a new carpet altogether. If this is the case, the carpet installation experts at Richard Shannon's Painting, Flooring and Remodeling in Cincinnati, OH, can help.
The carpet installation experts at Richard Shannon's Painting, Flooring and Remodeling recommend checking for these four signs that you need to replace your carpet:
- Stains: Although professional carpet cleaners can often remove tough stains, sometimes no amount of scrubbing will help. If you’ve resorted to covering stains with rugs and couches, it’s time to replace your carpet.
- Wear & Tear: If you have polyester carpet, years of wear and tear will cause the fibers to become matted and lose their form, and rips and tears in carpets are hard to repair. The carpet installation experts recommend nylon carpeting, which is more resilient than polyester carpet.
- Strong Odors: If you can still smell your carpet even after a good cleaning, then the odor is deep in the carpet fibers. It might even be an indication that there is mold under the carpet. The most cost-effective solution is to replace the entire carpet.
- Pathetic Padding: If your carpet isn’t comfortable, that means the carpet padding has worn away. Not only does padding make the carpet comfortable to walk and lay on, but it also keeps a room quieter. If your carpet is uneven or sports wrinkles, it’s probably time to replace your carpet.
Most carpets should be replaced every 10 years. If you are still sporting shag carpet in the living room, call Richard Shannon's Painting, Flooring and Remodeling to install new carpet.
