Baseboards are areas of homes that often get overlooked when it comes to cleaning. Some people may mop their floors every day and still neglect their baseboards. Neglected baseboards get covered with grime that is the result of dust, dirt, foods, and other substances. These substances bind together and ultimately get stuck on baseboards, making them very unsightly. Perhaps your baseboards have not been cleaned in awhile, and that might be due to you having physical limitations such as knee problems that make it difficult for you to clean them.
Carpeting doesn't last forever and begins to look worn from foot traffic, pets and from everyday use. Taking out the old carpet and buying new isn't a difficult process and it can be done in just one day, but it's the cost of the new carpet that is the problem.
