If your home is filled with carpet that has seen better days, perhaps it is time to have it replaced. Better still, you should seriously consider replacing that ragged carpet with hardwood floors. There are many reasons to have your St. Joseph floor contractors replace your carpet with hardwood floors. Read on and prepare to be amazed.
The lifespan of carpet is around 7 to 10 years, at which time you need to spend more money having it replaced. On the other hand, it is not uncommon for hardwood floors to last 50 years and even longer. Replacing your carpet with hardwood floors means you don’t have to worry about new flooring for a long, long time.
Raise your hand if you hate vacuuming. That’s right, we see a whole lot of hands out there. Look, keeping your carpet clean is a huge undertaking. You need to vacuum frequently and have them shampooed at least 2 or 3 times a year. And that’s if you don’t own pets or have children. Hardwood floors, on the other hand, are relatively simple to upkeep. Weekly dusting with a dry mop and washing them every once in awhile is good enough to keep them clean. Just think about all the time you save not having to lug out that vacuum every week.
Do you sneeze a lot when you are at home? It could be due to the allergens floating around your home. These allergens get trapped in the fibers of your carpet and are released back into the air when you walk on it. On hardwood floors, these allergens sit on top, where they are easily cleaned and discarded.
