Signs You Need to Replace Your Carpet

The carpeting in your home is something you walk on every day, and often the first thing guests notice when they step inside. Not only should your home’s carpeting match the aesthetics of the entire property, but it should be comfortable yet durable enough to last decades. Unfortunately, no carpet lasts forever and there are a few telltale signs that you should have yours replaced.

One of the most common reasons to replace carpet is because of too many stains. While most stains can be cleaned up if they are attended to right away, over time multiple stains can build up and become an eyesore. If you find yourself constantly trying to cover up stains with rugs and other objects, it may be time to start from scratch.

Another reason to replace a carpet is if it is full of rips and tears. Whether it is coming apart at the seams, mattings together, or even coming up from the floor, you should look into getting it replaced immediately. While a small tear is nothing to worry about and something that can be repaired, larger rips are typically a sign that you need a new carpet.

Finally, if your carpet is beginning to smell or giving you an allergic reaction due to a buildup of allergens, it may be time to get rid of it. No one wants to hang out around a smelly carpet, especially one that is making them sneeze. Remember to clean your carpet regularly and take care of any messes right as they happen to avoid this in the future.

These are just a few signs that it may be time to get a new carpet. If you have any questions give us a call today!
