Disposal of old carpets is an issue of rubbish removal in South Hurstville and everywhere else in Sydney, for that matter. Carpet is a nuisance to get rid of and takes up copious amounts of space.
You need to understand that disposing of old carpet requires prior organisation and that there are distinct ways that carpets should be disposed of. Some old carpets can be recycled, and some can be reused; it’s not a foregone conclusion that your old carpet is destined for the rubbish dump and landfill.
Even the most durable, well-cared for carpets don’t last forever. How do you know your carpet has reached the end of its lifespan?
Some indicators that it’s time to replace your carpet include:
- Stains – carpet stains are notoriously difficult to remove, especially if your carpet is wool-based. Most stains can be removed to a certain extent, either by DIY processes or by hiring professional carpet to tackle the job. But some stains are impermeable (e.g. blood, red wine), no matter how you treat them – these are unsightly.
- Odours – carpets hold odours, from everything from spills to pets and general dirt. They should be vacuumed at least once per week. Over time, there are many factors that do make carpet smell offensive, including urine, vomit, or faeces (from small children or pets); spills including red wine; failure to regularly have carpets deep cleaned professionally; and even from improper drying following cleaning, which creates a wet, musty smell. Once ingrained, some smells will not budge, no matter how much Febreeze you use!
- Wear and Tear – rips, fraying, tears, holes, and flattening. The padding under the carpet may also be worn and will deteriorate in time, making it uncomfortable to walk on and even allowing the small nails holding the carpet in place to be felt underfoot – ouch!
- Health Issues – carpets hold grit, dust, dirt, microscopic skin flakes, and are a breeding ground for bacteria and germs. If you suffer from allergies of any kind or regularly suffer from upper respiratory tract infections, it may be time to rethink your carpet altogether, as even frequent professional cleaning can’t eliminate all of the pathogens, dirt, and dust that cause issues. Other flooring solutions may be a better option for you.
