Is It Time For New Carpets? How To Decide

Is It Time For New Carpets? How To Decide

Replacing carpets can be an expensive undertaking, and it can be tough to know when it’s time to get rid of the old and bring in the new. Here, we’re sharing some signs that your carpets have seen better days, and it’s time to think about getting them replaced.

Things are getting stinky.

If your carpets are smelling less than fresh, they might simply need a good cleaning. Sometimes, however, this isn’t the case. If your carpets have been around for more than seven years, you have kids or pets, or your carpets have simply been through a lot (such as flooding or other environmental issues), it may be time to think about getting new carpets.

Your allergies are acting up.

If you find that your allergies are getting worse despite sticking to your normal allergy medication, your carpets may be to blame. Pollen and pet dander can set into your carpets and can be difficult to remove, especially if the allergens have built up over time. Worsening allergies may be a sign that it’s time for carpet replacement.

Stains won’t come out.

Normally, a professional carpet cleaning is enough to get most stains out of your carpet. If you’ve found that stains are set-in, however, it may be time for new carpets. Small stains can be hidden by rearranging furniture or moving small area rugs, but large stains are more difficult to hide.

Your carpets are clearly damaged.

Anyone who has brought a new puppy or kitten into their home knows that little animals love to scratch, and often, this results in fraying at the edges of carpets. While some small fraying issues can be taken care of with a pair of scissors, larger issues may require carpet replacement. If you’re unable to take care of fraying carpet on your own, or if the fraying carpet covers a large area, think about getting new carpets.
