What is the lifespan of carpeting?
The answer to this question depends on several variables, including the type of fiber you choose, the density and pile height, as well as how much traffic your flooring sees regularly. Average lifespans range from five to fifteen years, with some high-end products that can last more than twenty, under the right circumstances.

How often should carpeting be cleaned?
Daily vacuuming is a must, especially if you have wall-to-wall carpet throughout many areas of your home. Spot cleaning is also necessary when spills or messes occur, and professional cleanings should usually be carried out every twelve to eighteen months, depending on your activity levels.

Is underpadding mandatory for carpeting?
An underpadding goes a long way towards helping to alleviate bunching, balding, seam separation, and premature wear, especially in busy areas. It also helps create a more comfortable step, adds heat retention and noise suppression, and should never be left out of your carpet experience.

Should I be worried about the amount of shedding I’m seeing?
New carpets to shed fibers, but these are just leftovers from when the product was manufactured. To get rid of the shedding faster, you can vacuum frequently, but be sure to empty your vacuum frequently during the process.

Can I remove dents caused by heavy furniture?
When you have a piece of heavy furniture that sits in one place for a long time, it can cause your carpet to appear dented, and this is often not permanent. While ensuring you don’t touch the fibers with it, using a steam iron can work, or you can contact us for further information.

So, how do you choose the right carpet fiber?


  • Nylon: It’s the strongest, most durable, and most widely used fiber on the market. It has better crush resistance, appearing retention, and is easy to clean.
  • Triexta: The appearance of Triexta is similar to nylon and incredibly stain resistant. It is durable and much softer than other fibers.
  • Polyester carpets: Although not considered as durable as nylon, well-constructed carpet made from polyester is more durable than ever. Polyester offers a wide range of colors and textures. It is also non-allergenic and easy to clean.
  • Olefin carpets: Moisture resistant but limited in color selection, Olefin carpets are also not as resilient as nylon. In higher traffic areas only the best-constructed and most dense style should be used.
  • Wool: Wool is the oldest fiber and is used in less than 3% of today’s marketplace. Although it is still an ideal carpet fiber, cost removes it as a factor in today’s residential market.
