A carpet will never last forever, and this is a fact of life. It does not matter how often you clean it or careful you are with it; with time, they eventually need replacement. However, the million-dollar question is; how do you identify it is time to replace one? Well, there isn’t a specific length of time; it all depends on wear and tear. As such, the time could be less than you think.
An Old Carpet
Is your carpet old? This is a common sign to replace a carpet. However, even though this is the case, a majority of homeowners do not understand the lifetime of their carpet. For this reason, if you are still using a carpet from the 90s or simply having the carpet professionally cleaned often; then it is time to upgrade. According to many carpet manufacturers, carpets last about ten years. Remember, this is an estimated time and not the actual time.
Carpets accumulate stains, and we understand stains. You may have stains that are not removable, and maybe you are tired of covering them with furniture and rugs. Rather than letting stains accumulate, it is wise to let a professional clean it first. Carpet cleaning companies can perform wonders, but they are not always 100% effective. When it happens, it is time to replace the carpet.
Wear And Tear
Eventually, a carper will wear and tear, and there is no way to get around this. Foot traffic causes matted areas. These areas often get ripped, and with time, they become worse and worse. Just like stains, you can hide the areas with rugs and furniture. However, when you begin to notice these, then it is time to replace it.
Just like any fabric product, carpets hold scent and homeowners with pet understand this fact. It does not matter how well your pet is trained; the carpet will still absorb the odor. Furthermore, there are also natural odors that can get into your carpet. To eliminate this problem, you should have a professional clean your carpet, but eventually, you will need to get a new one.
