Signs it may be Time for a New Carpet

 

Can’t seem to get the stains out of your carpet? Has it been around to see your kids grow up and the lifetime of your pets? Here are a couple signs that will tell you whether it’s time to bite the bullet and get new carpeting or not!

 

  • Remember when we asked you if your carpet had been around a while? Well, if it’s reached its lifetime peak – there’s your first sign. If you have carpeting that’s ten years or older; chances are the padding and carpet itself may have reached the end of their lifetime.

 

  • Have you tried everything you can to remove those pesky odors? Can’t seem to get rid of it? Sadly, if your carpet has been through a couple pets (or kids) – it’s probably time to rip it up and lay down some new flooring.


 

  • Are you looking at a few tears that you aren’t sure how to fix? A professional may be able to fix them, but if you’re looking at several large tears – it’s definitely time to invest in a new carpet.

 

  • What does your carpet feel like beneath your feet? Is it still as soft and cushion-y that it was when you first bought it? How about when it was only 3 years old? If you feel matted or stiff areas, it’s time to look into some new carpet.


 

  • Noticed you’ve been suffering from allergies lately? More so when you’re sitting on your couch with your feet up over your carpet? Increased allergies may be a sign that you should get rid of that old carpet.


Well, there you have it! If you think you may need to start looking into replacing your flooring – remember these five signs before you decide! Remember, cleaning your carpet regularly can also help elongate the life of your flooring!
