Signs You Need To Replace Your Carpet

Carpets are one of the most preferred flooring options to many homes due to their attractiveness and feel. They can also be placed in different rooms, even the bedrooms, and still be appealing. With proper carpet maintenance in your home, carpets can last up to 10 years on average.

Yet, at some point, you will need to replace them. Even the best laid and maintained carpets eventually reach this point. The signs you need to replace your carpets are not always common. Here are a few ways to help you determine whether it’s time to go for a replacement.

Stubborn stains

A little stain, and it becomes hard to clean them, even with professional help. The damages can be so visible that you will have no option but to go for a replacement.

If the damage is small but permanent, you can cover them with rugs or furniture. But will you keep on doing this in every other place that this happens? When you keep on seeing permanent stains that cannot come out, it means that their ability to resist stains has reduced due to wear.

Foul smell

When a carpet gets old, it can have a foul smell, likely from the old padding beneath the carpet. The smell could be due to moisture getting in the carpet or your pet. If it’s caused by your pet, you may consider a full replacement. If the smell is due to the wet floor, you may first need to deal with making the floor damp and causing molds to grow. After solving the problem, you still will have to replace your carpet.

Wear and tear

You can see visible damages on your carpet. Some parts are torn and cannot be repaired. Instead of trying to hide the torn parts, you should just replace them. This is one of the obvious signs that you need to replace your carpet.

Allergy symptoms

When dust, pet hair, and pollen accumulate in your carpet for long, it can be difficult to remove if you do not conduct proper deep cleaning. With time, your carpet could be the culprit that causes you too many allergic reactions. If the dust and debris in the carpet don’t come out since the carpet is too old, you will need to replace it.

The carpet is uneven and too old.

If your carpet is too old, the padding under the carpet can be damaged and stretch, causing the whole carpet to get uneven. The flooring gets so uncomfortable when walking on it. To avoid unnecessary accidents by tripping, you need to replace your carpets or get new padding.
