After a while, carpets can generate odours from the mixture of dirt from around your home. Fr instance, if you have pets the smell can get stuck into the carpet and linger for a long period of time. This is the reason that pet owners should think of investing in timber flooring, as the smells do not linger and you can maintain a fresh and relaxing home.
