The Unexpected Benefits of Carpet Removal

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Once you’ve removed your carpet you’ll be glad to finally have it out of sight and out of mind. A weight has lifted from your shoulders. You’re most likely looking forward to your new flooring and can hardly wait for the day to approach. Without flooring your room or even your entire home just looks naked and soulless. But are you already starting to notice another huge difference? A carpet removal does indeed have a few other benefits apart from the aesthetic appeal. If you haven’t yet removed it, you should definitely check this page for an auspicious carpet removal anyone can afford.

Fewer allergens in the air

Are you allergic? Allergies are rather annoying as they are. Hay fever keeps you from enjoying the summer. If you’re allergic to dust, you need to thoroughly clean your home on a regular basis. An old carpet can aggravate allergy symptoms since pollen, dust, pet dander are trapped inside over time. You could have the best hoover in the world. Or also arrange a regular carpet cleaning by a pro. The truth is, though, that allergens are tiny particles that are extremely hard to be removed from your carpet completely. 

Reduced, but never terminated

The best cleaning in the world can only reduce allergens. Moreover, the dust also collects underneath your carpet at the padding. Obviously, you can’t clean underneath your carpet before removing it. Once the professionals remove your carpet, your allergy symptoms should definitely get better. 

You don’t see them, but they’re there

We’re not hinting towards germs here, though you can’t see them either. As fuzzy and cozy as the carpet is to your feet, it provides a perfect home for bugs. Dust mites enjoy living in your carpet the most. They’re not only problematic for people suffering from dust allergies, but also those suffering from asthma. If you’re prone to rhinitis or eczema, dust mites can worsen your condition as well. However, also otherwise healthy people can notice side effects of a carpet full of dust mites and develop chronic rhinitis. Should you notice a worsening in your overall condition, it may just be the carpet. Asthmatics might benefit from other flooring materials to keep dust mites a little bit more at bay. After the carpet removal that is.

Fewer germs

You’d neither be able to see germs in any carpet. The older it is, the higher the chances are that it does harbor a whole truckload of germs. Technically, germs are usually not as much of a danger to us humans. Germs live on your skin and also inside of your body that keeps us healthy. A lowered immune system response, on the other hand, could open the gateways and turn each germ into a dangerous candidate. Medication can also lower your immune system response that makes it easier for germs to have at you. A wet spot that is not cleaned up properly on your carpet can, over time, harbor further germs. Make sure you don’t have any leftovers on your carpet that could make someone ill. A carpet removal will help you sort that issue within a jiffy.

No odd smells

Most people don’t even realize that there’s a funny smell lingering in their home. They just can’t since they spend most of their time there. To them, certain smells just become part of the entire living environment. Others, however, will soon notice. If you’ve stopped smoking you’d surely want to do away with the carpet. You can give it a deep clean with essential oils as much as you want. The smell of cigarette smoke will always linger on your carpet. Over time, each carpet will smell a little odd. As it happens over time, hardly anyone notices it either. Once the carpet removal has been accomplished, the source of any subtle lingering smells will be gone. Promised.

Flat and comfy surface to walk on

The slightest signs of warping in your carpet signal that it’s time for carpet removal. If you’re lucky, the old carpet hasn’t warped as much yet. An old carpet will warp and tear at some though. That can turn into a safety hazard in your home and cause you to trip. With a lot of bad luck, you’re breaking your hip or at least your arm. You’ll notice the difference immediately as soon the old carpet is gone. Moreover, as carpets are matting down over the years, you’ll feel like you’re walking on clouds with the new flooring.  

Did you have mildew?

Mold and mildew often creep up in spots where you don’t notice it. Only when your carpet shows white, green, or black stains that you can’t seem to clean, you know it’s too late. People living in humid climates might be aware of how absorbent a carpet is. Water damage that’s gone unnoticed may also have caused our carpet to build up mold. Carpet removal as a general renovation effort has the tendency of showing first signs. And you didn’t expect it at all. As soon as the carpet is removed, you can hunker down the repairs in that area. Make sure, your home is completely mold-free.

You can repair and upgrade your subflooring

Have you noticed the one or the other odd squeak when you walked around in your room? A wood plank of your subflooring may have started to rot and needs repair. Carpet removal is generally a great time to check your subflooring if it’s still intact. Make sure you’ve done all necessary repairs before the new flooring comes in. Since the floor is bare, you could also consider installing a radiant heating floor system. You won’t only benefit from your new flooring but also from a completely new level of comfort in your home. Imagine how great it would be if it was snowing outside, but your floor keeps your feet comfortably warm.
