If you’re having a soft surface flooring like carpet, nothing can replicate the warmth and softness of it. It’s the most forgiving flooring that’s not affected by breaks, warps or scratches. Depending on carpets wear and tear it’s not a bad idea to replace them every 7-10 years. Of course, before replacing anything a professional carpet cleaner can make the most run-down carpets look clean. Cleaning will be a fraction of the cost of a new carpet.
When carpet runs its course, it’s time for a new one. Carpet installation is very fast, efficient and cost effective. A real professional carpet installer can do it for you in just one day.
If your floor surface is a hard one like hardwood or laminate flooring, it always adds character and value to any type of property. The best time to put in a new hardwood floor is when your carpet is due for replacement. New tenants love hard floors and will pay rent premiums for it. Hard flooring installations usually take longer to install, especially if baseboards needs to be replaced, but a fast professional installer can still do it in a day or two.
