carpet cleaningFor most people, when it comes to decorating your floor, new carpet is the way to go. With so many different materials, patterns, and colors to choose from, new carpet options are never ending. Although, just like everything else, they too come with their own maintenance needs.

Is it time to replace the old carpet with a new one? Like we said earlier, with such an endless variety to choose from, buying a new carpet can be a pretty stressful. Our guide can help you decide if it’s better to wait or to go out and spend the money to get a new carpet.

Know What You Want

Make sure you won’t regret your new carpet purchase. It’s best that you know what you’re looking for before you start shopping. Do your research, see what colors and patterns are popular and which ones aren’t.

However, do not limit your research to the color or pattern of the carpet, also pay close attention to the material of the carpet. Keep in mind, the material of your new carpet will determine its maintenance needs.

Look at What You Already Have

Your carpet selection should complement everything else that is in your home. The color of your carpet should complement the colors of the surrounding walls. If there already is a lot going on in your house in terms of furniture and decoration pieces, stay away from carpets with heavy patterns.

New Carpet and Your Family

Are there kids in the family? Do you have pets staying with you in the house? These things are very important when it comes to selecting a carpet. Kids and pets are a clear giveaway that you shouldn’t have light colored carpets in the house.

Consider Other Options Too

If new carpet shopping isn’t making much sense to you, there are several other flooring options available to you. You could just completely give your home a stunning makeover.

Your Budget

Naturally, the kind of carpet you end up buying has a lot to do with what your budget allows. A market survey is a good option in order to get a good deal. Before you buy a carpet from the first shop you have visited, go to a few other places as well. Check out their carpet range and their prices. The same carpet you saw and loved in the first shop could be available for half its price somewhere you never even thought to look.

Your Old Carpet

Your old carpet might not be bad. This is something to consider when thinking about buying a new carpet or another replacement option. If your old carpet just looks dirty, think about hiring a professional to steam clean it. Salvaging good carpet that can be used for a few more years.

Reach Out to a Professional

Buying a carpet is kind of like an investment, you do not want to regret it later. So, if you want to play it safe try to get in touch with an interior designer. They know their stuff so they can help you pick something out which is that much more likely to work out for you.

Having your carpets professionally cleaned can actually extend that life of your carpets, provided that you find a good, competent carpet cleaning service provider. Like NYC Steam Cleaning, we can help you. Give us a call if you have any questions at 1-888-245-1199.

 Jen and team were so great to work with. We had a hard task at hand removing adhesive residue from residential hard wood floors. We couldn’t find anyone else up for the task and NYC Steam Cleaning got the job done. Highly recommend this service and team for any floor, carpet, rug, upholstery cleaning needs.

5 star experience. I recently got a puppy who turned my new couch into her personal bathroom. I did a google search and found NYC steam cleaning. Luckily, I was able to make an appointment for the next day with this company. The entire cleaning took about 1 hour. My couch is brand new again, thank you!!

 I have hired them two times and have been highly pleased. Our pet was not very nice to this carpet and they were capable to get it clean. They also did my upholstery and the whole thing looks great. Their service charges are very rational and the workers have arrived within few minutes.
