Carpe(t) Diem: Why You Should Seize the Opportunity to Regularly Maintain Your Carpets

Modern-day carpets are pros at disguise with their intricate patterns masking stains and soils. The highly developed backings and fibers are designed to resist fluid absorption and the advanced dying approach makes sure that the colors remain vibrant and bright. Regardless of appearance, every carpet needs proper maintenance to remain at its best as well as to promote a healthy and sanitary environment.

With that said, let’s dig into the top 4 reasons proper carpet maintenance is a must for homes and businesses:

1. Increased carpet life

Modern carpets are, without a doubt, one of the most cost-effective flooring options. Nevertheless, carpets are still a significant investment. Besides the initial cost price, there is an estimation that maintenance costs an average between 60 to 70 percent of the total cost throughout the carpet's lifetime. Even so, retaining an existing carpet makes more sense than changing it, because the longevity of a price determines its cost. The longer it lasts, the lesser the price. Therefore, the key to keeping this investing and maximizing the life cycle is adequate maintenance.

2. Access to a healthier environment

Adequate carpet maintenance enhances the indoor environment by getting rid of debris, allergens, and other microscopic particles from the carpet. A cleaner carpet subsequently implies cleaner air and a healthier indoor environment.

3. Reduced visibility of high traffic areas

Some carpeted areas that receive a considerable amount of foot traffic like the entry way, and parts of the living room tend to deteriorate quicker than those in bedrooms or under tables. That is because these areas regularly track dirt. Regularly vacuuming will remove some dirt, but removal of deep-down particles requires a professional cleaning.

4. Improves overall room appearance

Carpets are the largest and the most used furnishing in a room. Although you may not notice at first, a room can look dirty just by the carpet's condition over time. So, proper carpet maintenance tends to improve the aesthetics of a room instantly after a fresh cleaning.
