Carpets are great. They provide warm and comfort to cold, dull rooms. But, how can you tell it’s time to replace your old carpeting and get something new installed?
My Affordable Floors has been in the flooring business for years. We know when an old carpet needs replacing. Let’s take a look at some of the sure signs your carpet’s way too old.
Your Carpets Are Stained
This is the number one reason you should replace an old carpet. If there are multiple, obvious stains in your carpeting, you should replace it. For one, stains are ugly. Whether it’s the result of an accident or a messy house pet, stains embarrass most people. Even professional cleaning cannot remove tough carpet stains sometimes. We also know that many at-home cleaning supplies can make the problem worse.
If you’re covering up massive carpet stains with furniture or rugs, it’s time to replace the carpets for something fresh. You cannot hide blemishes forever. There comes a time when you need to purge and replace.
The Carpets Are in Poor Condition
Is there excessive degrees of wear and tear on your carpet? If so, it’s about time to replace that old carpet for a new one. Rips and tears in carpets look bad. They also get much worse once you start to notice them. If you notice them early, there may be a chance to preserve the carpet’s lifespan a bit. However, often times once you get a snag in the carpet, it usually just gets worse.
Tears and snags on the stairs of main walkways? If yes, that’s dangerous. You cannot risk the safety of family members and house visitors forever. Eventually, accidents can happen. Someone may get their shoe caught in the snag and trip. If that’s possible in your home, it’s time to get the carpets replaced.
Your Carpets Smell Bad
If your carpet is noticeably smelly, then you need to replace it. Carpet cleaning can help some. However, if you’ve tried carpeting cleaning services and still smell the carpet when you enter the room, replace it ASAP. It could be molding or worse underneath in the carpet pad. Carpets can also be a source of increase allergy symptoms. Older carpets catch and trap allergens more easily, which can cause spikes in allergies.
