One of the best ways to extend the life of carpeting in your home and prevent it from showing signs of wear and tear is to have carpet protection applied to it. Carpet protection can prevent accidental spills from ruining carpeting. It will repel dirt, liquids, and more and keep your carpets looking their best. However, before you have carpet protection applied, you should consider whether or not it will actually benefit you. Here are a few questions to ask yourself regarding your need for carpet protection.
Will your carpet be subjected to dirt and spills regularly?
If you have kids, pets, or someone in your home who makes a mess regularly, then carpet protection might be a great option for you. Many parents choose to apply carpet protection on carpeting located in rooms where kids play a lot. Nevertheless, if you have carpeting in a part of your home that doesn’t get much foot traffic or if you don’t have any kids or pets living in your home, then carpet protection might not be a necessity for you. You should think about how much wear and tear a carpet will get before you go with carpet protection.
Is your carpet equipped to hide signs of wear and tear without protection?
There are some types of carpeting that are designed to hide signs of wear and tear. There are other types of carpeting that are simply too dark to see spills and dirt, even if they’re there. You might enjoy the peace of mind that comes along with carpet protection, regardless of whether or not your carpeting will hide any wear and tear. However, before you invest in carpet protection, you should consider if spills and dirt will even affect your carpeting all that much.
How long do you plan on keeping your carpeting?
Many people install carpeting without giving much thought to how long they’re going to keep it. But if you have a number in mind, that can help you make a decision on carpet protection. If you only plan on keeping your carpeting for a couple years anyway before replacing it, you might not get to take full advantage of carpet protection, and it could end up being an unnecessary expense from the beginning.
