Despite what most homeowners believe, carpet doesn’t last forever. In fact, many carpets come with a pretty accurate life-span guarantee. Of course, there is a number of factors which can reduce its lifespan. When it comes to carpets, it’s definitely a ‘pay for what you get’ affair. However, this doesn’t mean that simply buying the most expensive carpet means that you will have beautifully carpeted floors for the duration of your home ownership.

Is Your Carpet Crying out to Be Replaced?

Charlotte Cleanpro knows a thing or two about keeping carpets looking their best and knows even more about when it’s time to bite-the-bullet and straight-up replace them. Below are some of the key signs to look out for.

What’s That Smell?

Do you have a smell in your home which, no matter how much you use deodorant or air fresheners, just won’t budge? The next time the odor makes its way to your nose, follow the scent and, instead of looking up, look down! Reach down to your carpet, get your face up close, and take a whiff. There is a good chance that the bad smell is coming from your carpet. While regular vacuuming and even professional cleaning can help to keep bad odors at bay, it doesn’t work forever. A mixture of everything and anything which you and your guests walk into your home can and will make its way to the root-fiber of your carpet and padding where it accumulates and, you guessed it, leaves a smell!

Speaking of Your Padding

Similar to carpet, many homeowners believe that the padding they choose to lay down before their carpet will last forever. Unfortunately, if you choose a low-quality padding then it can easily come to the end of its life earlier than your carpets. If you can notice patches in your carpet where your feet just don’t feel as supported or it feels like you are walking outdoors down a hiking trail, it’s time to get your padding replaced. Of course, in order to do this, you will need to pull up your existing carpet, which is often a good time to just replace both padding and carpet. If your carpet still has a bit of life left in it, Charlotte Cleanpro can help to both keep it looking at good as possible and extend its lifespan. While traditional steam cleaners will soak your carpet with water and cleaning solution which needs days to dry, leaving your carpets at risk of mold growth, Charlotte Cleanpro uses a proprietary ION exchange cleaning service which uses very little cleaning fluid to perform a much better job. Better yet, this method leaves your carpets dry in a matter of hours, not days!

You Are Charging Stains Rent

There are some small stains which, if you can get to them early enough, won’t leave a mark. Then there are the stains which you are pretty sure should start contributing to your mortgage or rental payments because they have definitely taken up permanent residence in your home. Despite what you might think, everybody notices these stains and they actually work against you to reduce the overall clean look of your home. If you can see more stains than you can clean carpet, it’s time to replace it all.

Stains Aren’t the Only Thing Which Has Taken up Residence

Mold! Everybody knows what it is and everybody hates it! However, it isn’t limited to just your bathroom or even the kitchen ceiling from steam. Mold can grow anywhere which is damp and dark, which definitely includes the base of your carpet and padding. Unfortunately, removing mold from either of these spaces isn’t easy and often isn’t worth the cost. If you have noticed that your allergies are playing up or you can see mold discoloration through your carpet, it’s time to replace your carpet instead of attempting to clean it out.
