Five Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Carpet
It can be difficult to decide to replace your carpet. It’s a hefty investment, and there are many decisions that need to be made. Which carpet will you choose? What company will you use? When will you have time? But, at some point, you will need to make the decision. Here’s what you should consider.
It Might Be Time to Replace Your Carpet If…
There was water damage. If water damage isn’t properly taken care of, mold and mildew can grow in the carpet fibers and padding. New carpeting may be required to make the room a healthy environment.
It smells. Whether you had water damage or your pet has had one too many accidents, it’s easy for smells to get trapped in carpeting. If the smell won’t go away, it likely traveled all the way down to the padding, where standard cleaning products typically can’t reach.
The fibers are frayed or matted. If you get down close to carpeting, you shouldn’t see frayed fibers or matting. It should look springy and uniform. There isn’t much you can do about destroyed fibers except try to hide them, so new carpeting may be necessary to improve the look of your flooring.
You have extensive staining that won’t come out. If your carpet has a few stains that won’t come out, you can try to strategically hide them. If the stains extend all over your carpet, your room will look dirty, even if you do your best to keep the carpet free from new stains, pet hair, and crumbs. New carpeting may be your best answer to make your room feel clean.
The padding is no longer springy. Your carpet is supposed to make your room more comfortable. While having high-quality carpeting helps, the padding underneath is what makes a big difference in feel. If you no longer feel that slight cushioning, it may be time to replace your carpet so you can get new padding and make the room more comfortable.
