If you just treat your carpet accordingly, it will definitely stay much longer, saving you a lot of cash in the future. The following are some of the strategies in order to make your carpet last longer: 

  1. The Sign of a High-Quality Carpet

One way in order to lengthen the quality of your carpet is to inspect its density by bending your carpet backward. If you can feel the backing easily, then it is a low-density carpet. Lower quality carpets will only crush more easily and will not last for a long period of time. 

  1. Use of the Vacuum 

The best way to extend or maximize the lifespan of the carpet as well as delay the highly cost replacement is cleaning. Vacuum the high-traffic areas and entrance areas at least two times every week and the remaining of your carpets for at least once a week. 

In order to achieve the best outcomes, set your vacuum to its ideal height. Elevate it until it reaches its highest setting, then turn the vacuum on and then lower it down until you can feel your vacuum trying to drag itself forward. Go slowly. As a matter of fact, it is actually good to make one fast pass over the low-traffic areas however, make sure to make two slow passes on the high-traffic areas. On top of that, you should begin with a clean filter first. A dirty filter or bag lessens the cleaning capacity of your vacuum. Furthermore, replace the vacuum filters on bagless vacuums once every three months. In addition to that, replace the vacuum bags when they are already 75 percent full. 

  1. Purchase the Appropriate Carpet Pad

The right carpet pad will lengthen the lifespan of your carpet as well as the wrong carpet pad may reduce your carpet’s life by half. The quality of the carpet pad is basically depending on the density and not on the thickness. A better-quality carpet pad is at least 3/8 to ½ inches in thickness and at least 6 pounds in weight/density rating (the residential standard). In most situations, low-density and cheaper pads will only survive a few years before its replacement is already required. For the high-traffic areas, have a thinner pad with a higher-density pad of at least 8 pounds or more. 

  1. Cut Out Burns and Stains

If the carpet has stains or burns, you do not have to leave just the way it is. You may use a cookie cutter in order to cut out the burn or the stain portion of the carpet and replace this with a patch from under your sofa or a cut from a remnant. It is actually very easy. With some kinds of carpets, the piece is very visible however, it is not that noticeable. With other carpets, the restoration is almost not possible to notice. In order to make sure that this process will be done correctly, make sure that you only trust a professional and expert carpet cleaning specials in Aurora Ontario in order to make sure that the job will be done in a timely and professional manner.
