Is It Time for a New Carpet

Most of us wish our stuff would last forever, especially when we’re so attached to it, but even with the best care, it’s sometimes just time to replace it.

Buying carpet can be an overwhelming process, so you want to only work with dealers who are knowledgeable.  How long have they been in business? What about education and certification, and do they keep up--to-date with new skills and techniques?  What does the price include? What about the dry heat in Phoenix? Are there special precautions to take, and is mold still a problem, even when there isn’t much humidity?

That can be the case with any rug. Although they can last up to 15 years, Arrowhead Carpet & Tile, gives you some tell-tale signs when it’s time to get a new one.

It’s hardly smooth terrain.  Do you see a lot of waves, rolls and buckling?  Sometimes all it needs is a good (professional) stretching, but if it has been around for a while, it can also mean the backing is breaking down.

The best thing to do?  Have a pro look at your carpet, but be sure they come from reputable dealers, or you could end up spending more money than you need to, Phoenix.

Your dog’s aroma is as stubborn as the dog itself. Professional carpet cleaning will often get it out, but one of the big mistakes people make is trying to DIY it themselves, Phoenix. The stain can set, the odor won’t be entirely gone, and the dog will keep coming back time and again to “mark his territory.”

Consequently, it will all set, and dealers may advise you that it’s time for a replacement.

Loose loops.  Think of a sweater. You might have one or two that “go rogue,” so you just clip them and forget it.  But if you have a whole bunch and they snag, and you pull it, a whole area can unravel. Your rug will also do that, so if you see a lot of loose loops, it may be time.

Your allergies seem to be getting suddenly worse.  One of the great things about this type of flooring is that it traps pollutants, and they remain trapped until professional steam cleaning gets them out.

But if the symptoms seem to be getting worse, it could mean that tit’s too old, and the older it is, the more they trap and retain.
