If you look at your older carpet and wonder whether you should have it cleaned or replaced, there are a couple of signs that will help point you in the right direction. From matting to stains, your old carpet might be transformed with a good cleaning but much depends on what it’s made of.
One sign to look for to determine what action you should take is whether or not your carpet is matted. Matting often happens in the main walkways of your home. If your carpet is made of polyester and it is matted, then it might be time for a new carpet. On the other hand, if your carpet is made of nylon then a professional cleaning can handle your matting issue.
If you happen to have Berber carpets and the loops are now flat, it is again up to the type of fiber your carpet is made of when determining whether to buy new or seek professional carpet cleaning help. Berber carpet made of Olefin that has flattened will most likely need to be replaced. If your Berber is made of nylon, then a good cleaning should bring it back to life.
A second sign to look for is stains. While no carpet is completely stain resistant, carpets can handle some stains better than others. A professional carpet cleaner can remove most household stains, but some damage such as spilled bleach cannot be undone.
Finally, a build-up of mold and mildew can be hazardous to your health and if you have not dealt with the moisture issue right away, it could be too late. That’s why if your carpets become wet, you need to bring in a professional immediately.
