Your home’s floor furnishings are one of the most expensive investments made throughout your life. It’s that home interior item that can last a long time depending on several factors including quality of carpet design, material, traffic, and how method of cleaning used over the years.
Expert carpet cleaners recommend homeowners to replace their floor furnishing every 5-10 years but this estimate also depends on stains and wear the carpet faced during that time. However, you may have to decide between two tough choices in many cases before the time for carpet replacement arrives…
To Repair or Replace – That Is the Question
It makes sense that a carpet in a high traffic area will face more wear and tear from feet brought in from outside than a carpet placed in a lesser used room. There are some instances when you don’t have any option but to replace the floor furnishing (patches look tacky).
Yet most common carpet problems can be fixed with a little help from a professional carpet repair service in Bakersfield.
Following are some issues that can sprout up from your carpet and should be addressed by a professional carpet repairer only.
Unsightly Damaged Piece of Carpet
It doesn’t make much financial sense to replace a carpet that is damaged in parts and pieces. However you cannot just cut the offending piece away and hide the area with furniture or another patch of carpet. Manufacturers often provide extra pieces of the same colored carpet to buyers for this same reason.
Excellence Janitorial Services & Carpet Cleaning offer carpet stretching and patching to fix this common issue.
Faded Traffic Lanes
These ‘lanes’ generally appear in heavily travelled areas of the home. A low quality carpet will show the first signs of wear and overuse with traffic lanes drawn on high traffic carpet areas. For instance, you will see traffic lanes on carpets placed in long hallways, outside bathroom and kitchen doors, and areas around the bed. What to look out for?
Carpet fiber suffering from heavy traffic will become scratched, matted or abraded. Home cleaning can be done to remove some of the discoloration yet overtime the issue will become more prominent. Professional carpet repair can help correct this issue, making your carpet look brand new again.
Disgusting Soil Wicking
There are many ways this problem can arise on your carpet but the main culprit is water i.e. a wet carpet from cleaning, spills or water damage will result in soil wicking. What is this problem?
It happens when brownish discoloration appears on the tips of the carpet’s fibers. Carpets placed in areas of heavy soiling typically suffer from this problem. However carpets that take too much time to dry after cleaning also become victim of soil wicking.
Home cleaning methods aren’t enough when it comes to repairing this issue as you won’t have the tools to help speed up drying of your carpet.
This is where Excellence Janitorial Services & Carpet Cleaning comes in the picture. Because sometimes all your home and office carpet needs to shine is a little professional nudge. Call us today and enjoy benefits of green cleaning!
