What Should Your Carpet Be Afraid Of?

By: bchauveau Sunday October 2, 2022 comments


Carpet has its benefits and is preferred by many homeowners. As a result, it is important to have carpets cleaned regularly as they can become dirty very quickly. Without routine maintenance, carpets are at risk of four common dangers.

Foot Traffic

Pedestrian traffic increases the wear and tear of carpets over time. In high traffic areas, such as under beds and other furniture, you may not notice this wear and tear. Doorways and main hallways are often the places where wear occurs. It is common for these areas to have soil, dirt, and other debris. With or without shoes, walking over this area can move dirt or soil, causing the carpet fibers to be damaged.

High traffic areas can be slowed down with a few techniques. Vacuum it frequently to keep it clean. Wear indoor shoes instead of outside shoes, and rearrange your furniture from time to time to avoid heavy traffic areas.


Whether it's a spilled beverage, pet accident, or overturned glass, carpet stains can result from a multitude of reasons. If not addressed quickly, these stains can cause discoloration, foul odors, and stiffness in your carpet.

It is often necessary and highly recommended to hire a professional cleaning service for difficult, older, or easily visible stains, even if household materials and quick cleaning can reduce the severity of the stain and its appearance.

Cleaning your carpet professionally, especially with a steam cleaner, can penetrate deep into the stain to break it up completely. This will make your carpet look cleaner and stain-free. Discoloration and unpleasant odors will no longer be a problem.

Heavy Furniture

Moving heavy furniture incorrectly can also lead to complications. Lifting the entire piece of furniture off the carpet is ideal. Your carpet may get snagged if you drag furniture across the floor. In some cases, the force of the furniture can actually tear the carpet, especially if it occurs near the edge or where two pieces meet.


There is no guarantee that pets and carpets will get along. A dirty pet's feet will add to the wear and tear. With pets, urine is one of the biggest dangers to your carpet. Despite your best efforts, deterring your pet from urinating inside is not always possible. If you notice pet stains, make sure you clean them as soon as possible.

A pet's fur can also embed itself in the carpet, making it appear dirty. Getting rid of animal hair is as easy as vacuuming regularly.
