• <h4 class="dechead">On One Hand: Carpeting Issues

    Carpet, especially when laid in a high-traffic area, can quickly become dingy and stained. Even if you have stain treatment added to the carpet, eventually it is going to wear to the point where it will need to be replaced. The durability of the carpet will largely depend on the brand and the type of fibers. Typically, carpet should be replaced every 10 years or five years if it is in a high-traffic area.

    On the Other: Proper Care

    By using carpet savers and limiting the amount of exposure from pets and small children, you can extend the life of your carpeting, delaying the need for replacing it every decade. Placing of rugs in high-traffic areas can also extend the life of carpet.

    Bottom Line

    If your carpet is well-worn and stained, or it is in a high-traffic area, replacing it often is the best option; however, try deep-cleaning it first. Buy carpeting that comes with stain resistance and at least a 15-year warranty to protect your investment.
