Ways to Repurpose Your Old Carpet

Our team at Elite Carpet Cleaning works hard to clean and maintain your carpets so that they look as good as possible for as long as possible. But nothing lasts forever, and that includes your carpet. When it comes time to retire your existing carpet, whether with new carpeting or new flooring, you may wonder what to do with the old carpet that you are left with. That is why today, we wanted to share a few ideas with you on how to repurpose your old carpet.

Keep Some in Your Car

As Winter approaches, those of us in colder climates are reminded that snowy and icy conditions are coming as well. Getting your car ready for the season with snow tires and all- weather mats to protect your floors are great steps to take. But when unpredictable weather hits, it is always possible to find you and your car stuck. This is where keeping a few squares of old carpet in the back of your trunk can prove to be a life saver. The carpeting will provide excellent traction so that you can get up and going in no time.

Keep Some for Padding

Sometimes certain home projects require you to get down on the floor to get the job done. If you do not have knee pads around, saving a few pieces of carpeting for those occasions can be useful. This way you can save your knees, back, and bum from bruising and soreness.

Keep Some for Scrubbing

When the time comes to scrub your window screens or your home siding, having some nice carpet scraps around can be helpful. The fibers are gentle enough to not cause damage but firm enough to break up unwanted grime.

There are honestly endless ways for you to repurpose your old carpeting. Hopefully, this list gave you a few ideas. If you are not sure whether your carpet is reaching the end of its lifespan, give us at Elite Carpet Cleaning a call for a free estimate! We are always honest about what we believe is salvageable or not. And if you can get away with a repair and a cleaning, we will let you know.
