4 Signs You Need to Replace Your Carpet

4 Signs You Need to Replace Your Carpet

When we purchase a new item for our home, it becomes something meaningful. It brings our home together, and is a part of the memories made. But time takes a toll on most things, especially carpet. From foot traffic, to spills, to time in general, we have some helpful tips on how to know when it's time to let go.

1. Time

How long have you been hanging onto that worn out area rug in the hallway? When was the last time you had a carpet replacement? Time is a good indicator of when to ditch the old, and break in the new. Depending on the type of fibers/material of the carpet, you can hold onto it anywhere from five to fifteen years. We know that's a wide range, so we have more tips for being able to tell when it's about time.

2. Stains

Carpet stains obviously make a big difference in the way your home looks and feels. If you are finding that stains are just not coming out anymore, call in a professional. You can schedule a professional carpet cleaning service, or you can ask their advice on if your carpet can come back from the discoloration and stains it's not letting go of. Professional carpet cleaning technicians should know how to advise you, and can even help you determine what material would be best for the future.

3. General Wear and Tear

If you can see that your carpet fibers are beginning to fall apart, think about it. Area rugs and carpet are not meant to last forever. WIth good care, they can withstand a lot, but eventually, the pile does begin to break down. High traffic areas of your home will show the wear and tear first, so keep an eye out for fibers that are unraveling or bare spots.

4. Allergies

Believe it or not, your carpet could be the reason that this allergy season has been particularly hard on you. Getting a carpet cleaning done every 12-18 months can be helpful in keeping your allergies at bay, but over time, your carpets will begin to hold onto more pollen, dander, and dust naturally. If you are struggling with allergies more than usual, it may be time for an area rug or carpet replacement.
