Carpet Pad Replacement
When our carpets are starting to look old or smell not-so-fresh, the first thing we’ll try to do is look for surface stains—but the truth is that most of the time, the real problem is what lies below the surface.
Directly beneath the carpet is carpet padding, which is used to absorb the impact on the carpet, prevent it from wearing down too quickly, and make it softer to walk on. Carpet padding can also absorb stains and odors, causing even freshly cleaned or vacuumed carpets to still look dingy or smell old. To keep your carpets looking fresh for a long time, experts recommend that you get your carpet padding replaced every five years, or whenever there is flooding, or you’ve spilled a strong liquid like gasoline, milk, vinegar, or bleach. Carpet padding can be the true source of pet odor especially when you have a new puppy who tends to have accidents on the carpets.
Carpets may not technically last forever, but with proper care and carpet pad replacement they can have way more longevity.
