Carpeting is one of the most important parts of your home, and it often gets the least amount of attention. If your carpet is older or poorly maintained, sometimes a weekend of TLC can revive it again. However, sometimes it’s time to replace the carpeting altogether. Here are 6 signs that it’s time to replace the carpeting in your home.
If you have small stains that can be removed, your carpet might just need a deep cleaning. If you have any major stains or permanent stains, it’s time to replace your carpeting. While many carpets are designed with stain-resistant finishes, the treatment will slowly fade over time and leave your carpet vulnerable. Big stains mean it’s time for new carpeting.
Major Wear and Tear
If your carpet is aging, it has probably seen many better days. If you find yourself trying to hide rips or tears in your carpet and moving furniture around to hide problems, you should invest in new carpeting. Matted carpet or carpet with a great deal of wear and tear are signs that your carpet is not going to serve your family for much longer.
A Lingering Odor
If you own a pet or smoke in your home, your carpet might have a lingering odor that remains even after you use deodorizer and air fresheners. If any smells do not disappear after a thorough cleaning or shampooing, it’s time for new carpeting, as that’s a sign that the odor is in the carpet fibers themselves.
Worn Out Carpet Padding
Carpet padding is like the pillow that is underneath your pillowcase, as it provides the majority of the support for the carpet you walk on. Without proper carpet padding, the floor will be worn out and uncomfortable to walk on. If the carpet padding underneath your existing carpeting is worn down and your floor feels uneven, it’s time for new carpet padding.
Carpets hold onto household allergens, even when they are regularly properly cleaned. If you have older carpet in your home and your allergies continue to act up, new carpeting can quickly solve the problem.
Age Is More Than a Number
When it comes to carpeting, age is more than a number. If your carpet has been there for over 10 years, it’s time to consider a replacement. After 10 years of normal use, wear and tear will start to set in and your carpet will lose its texture and softness. If you have tried everything without great results, it might be time to try new carpeting.
