Carpets inevitably become discolored over time. There are many ways to help prevent damage to your carpet. However, after that damage has occurred, you may need to obtain the services of a professional cleaning company to restore your carpet to its former glory. Staining and discoloration don’t mean that you have to completely replace your carpet. There are many remedies, though the best option is to prevent it. Here are some of the common causes of carpet color discoloration.
There are many things that can stain your carpet. Dropping food and incorrectly cleaning it can lead to staining. Spilling liquids, especially wine, can also cause your carpet to have stains. Try to avoid eating and drinking over carpeted areas. If you have children, ensure that they follow this rule as well.
Try and thoroughly potty train any animals in your home. If they aren’t potty trained, only allow them access to areas that are not carpeted. Not only will this help prevent stains from occurring, but it will also make cleanup much easier.
UV rays can cause significant damage to your carpet. It can lead to significant fading and discoloration. This may be prevented by obtaining windows that have UV protection. It can also be helped by keeping blinds and curtains closed, especially during the hours where sunlight may directly penetrate the room.
Carpets tend to become discolored as they age. Regular cleaning can help prevent stains and discoloration, though you need to be sure that you are using the right products. Using harsh chemicals may further contribute to discoloration damage.
Discoloration doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to completely replace your carpeting. This can be expensive. An easier alternative is to obtain professional carpet cleaning surfaces.
