When you look around your home you probably have everything in place, exactly where you want it, looking just the way you want it to. Seldom do people rearrange their furniture when it comes to their home. There are a number of times in a span of about 10-20 years that you might change up your home. Why does this even matter though? Well rearranging your furniture or the lack thereof, can affect the health of your carpet. Nip Tuck Carpet Repair in Ft. Collins has seen it all when it comes to carpet. We even see the effects that furniture has on your carpet. What are they?
Furniture is like a preserver. Anything that sits underneath it “keeps”. Over the years you have a lot of people walking in and out of your home. The only spots that are untouched are the ones underneath the couch making them stay in pristine shape while the rest of your carpet slowly degrades. If you have lived in your home a number of years you can easily see this if you move your furniture. The part underneath your couch will be light while the rest of your carpet will be dark. The problem is, if you ever try to sell your home, this will certainly pose a challenge. A cleaning might do the trick but it’s not a guarantee. You may end up having to re-carpet the home which we all know isn’t ideal. How can you avoid it in the first place?
Well the simple solution is one you probably already guessed, move your furniture around. You don’t have to do it as often as you’re thinking. Every year or so is good to help even out the wear and tear on it. Additionally, you’ll want to make sure that you get your carpets cleaned every year. And we are talking about, professionally cleaned, not self-cleaned with your own carpet cleaner. There is a huge difference between the two. Having it professionally cleaned will ensure that the dark and light distinction never shows up. Just because they haven’t showed up doesn’t mean they won’t. So, take the precautionary measures needed.
There are also other ways to help preserve your carpets, among such are rugs. They add a certain dramatic feel to the room and help divide up space. If you find that you’re in a particular room a lot, then it might be best to invest in a nice big rug. Regardless of what you do though, you are always going to get wear and tear. All you can do is even out the areas that get worn down and to a degree, lessen it. If you have worse problems going on like wrinkles, balding, or tearing then don’t wait to have them repaired! Nip Tuck Carpet Repair can help you take care of those problems quickly so that they don’t get any worse. Get an estimate over the phone today!
