What Elements Will Deteriorate Your Carpet

Contrary to what many people think, stains are not the only thing that can make your carpet decay. There are many elements that contribute to carpet wear, tear, and decay. All of these can add up, leaving your carpet in bad shape. Over time, it can get harder to try and improve the appearance of your carpet. That is why it is necessary to be well aware of what things can affect your carpet and how you can best protect and prevent premature decay.

Dust and Dirt Are Some of the Most Predominant Factors in Carpet Wear

Dirt and dust can be found in just about every carpet. This is because over time small particles that are left behind begin to accumulate and seep well into the carpet fibers. They will also rise to the surface slowly as a response to abrupt movements. Avoid an excess of dirt accumulation by vacuuming regularly and creating a routine that ensures your carpet gets a good and thorough cleaning. It is also a good idea to avoid stepping on the carpet with your outdoor shoes whenever possible. There is a lot of dirt and gunk that can get stuck to your soles when you are outdoors. All of this is carried inside when you step onto your carpet with those dirty soles. It is a good idea to have indoor and outdoor shoes. If removing your shoes before stepping on the carpet isn't possible, try to at least have a mat outside every entrance so that your guests and family member can wipe their shoes before entering.

Stains Can Be What Makes Your Carpet Deteriorate

This is another big problem when it comes to carpets. Stains make a carpet look ugly and worn out. The more stains your carpet accumulates, the more unsightly it becomes while also suffering from a reduced lifespan. Spills and stains are hard to prevent because they are usually accidents and are hard to get rid of. However, if you act fast you might just be able to quickly absorb the problem and remove it using water. The fact is that every stain is different and some home remedies may work while others just make the mess worse. It's best to let the professionals deal with these sorts of messes.

Professional Carpet Care

Having your carpet professionally cleaned is the best way to maintain your carpet in good shape and prolong its life. Having it cleaned can help prevent stains, excess dirt, and other factors causing your carpet to deteriorate. Always keep in mind that not every professional cleaning method is the same. At Charlotte Cleanpro they use the most efficient carpet cleaning method so that your carpet can not only look clean but actually feel like new. The Cleanpro method is among the safest and most reliable carpet cleaning methods. It is one of the best ways to ensure that your carpet doesn't look older than it should because of stains or dirt.

Sunlight Can Also Affect Your Carpet

Another element that can slowly but surely affect your carpet is the sunlight. Carpet that gets sunlight through a window or even indirectly will end up getting worn out faster because of fading. You may not even notice that there is fading in some areas because many times this happens evenly, but that is not always the case. It is usually when you move your furniture around that you start to notice that there is fading in different parts of your carpet. You may not be able to do much about this, but one way to even this out is to occasionally move your furniture around. When possible, make use of the shades to prevent direct sunlight from hitting the carpet. Invest in good shades that can be used to protect the carpet and other furniture from the sunlight.

Know When Your Carpet Needs to Be Replaced

Some carpets that have been used for many years will still show deterioration no matter how much work you put into them. It's important that you understand that no matter what, your carpet has a limited lifespan and it is necessary that you respect that.
