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!
