What is the lifespan of a carpet?

The lifespan of carpeting can vary from product to product due to several factors, with some lasting as little as three years and others lasting as long or longer than 20 years. In today's post, we'll speak on this briefly to give you a better understanding of the differences.

Choose a floor covering you can live with

The carpet fiber you choose has a great deal to do with the overall lifespan of the flooring. Some fibers are better able to handle heavy traffic and activity, so if you have a busy home, you’ll need a fiber that’s rated for it.

Some carpets now have stain and odor protection built right into the fibers, which gives you an even more extensive lifespan. For instance, a carpet with outstanding nylon or polyester fibers that include this built-in protection, along with other impressive features, will last the longest.

You can also extend the life of your carpet with a professional installation, regular and professional cleanings, and using area rugs or runners where traffic is the highest. If you’d like more customized advice on your flooring of choice, be sure to visit us for the information you’ll appreciate.
