How to Repurpose Your Carpet

When it comes to carpet in your home it always has a life expectancy. When that is hit you have one of two options: either you can replace it with new carpet or replace it with another type of flooring. Regardless of which you choose you are left with a large amount of carpet that you don’t know what to do with other than trash it. However, there are several different uses for old carpet. Here are some of the major ways that you’re able to repurpose your old carpet.

While summer is the time when homeowners tend to replace their carpet, it is winter when you’ll need to replace an old piece of carpet. In Colorado, it is thoroughly known that we have winter snowstorms that you think you can get through. However, many cars tend to get stuck as they try and get out of their neighborhood. You’ll want to do yourself a favor and put a couple of carpet remnants in the back of your car for those winter days. That means you need to start planning now and make sure that you have set enough aside for when winter blows through again as it does every year.

Summer is known for when you hunker down and do housework and yard work. This means you’re getting up and down a lot, making your knees sore or even bruised. Knee pads can be expensive and awkward to use. You can save yourself a couple bucks and the hassle of wearing knee pads and save a piece of carpet the you can throw down whenever you need to. This will help to save your knees in the long run.

If you’re in need of a cheap scrubber, then think about using some old piece of carpet. These scrubbers are great for when you’re wanting to clean the window screens on your home. While they are gentle enough to not break the screen that provide enough rough material to get a good clean. There are many other uses for old carpet like an exercise mat, car mat, padding for the garage or kids play area.
