Is It Time To Replace My Carpet?

Published on February 24th, 2017

When you invest in new carpeting, you want to make sure it will last. However, every carpet has an end date. Though regular cleaning will help it last for a long time, it is important to know the signs of when it is time to replace the carpets in your home. When it is time to do so, come visit our showroom at Best Buy Carpet and Granite; we have a huge selection, as well as experts to help you determine the best choice for your home.

Stains and Smell

Unfortunately, especially for those with pets and/or kids, stains can be commonplace. With the right steamer or professional carpet cleaner, they can get most stains out, but there may come a time where there are many stains that cannot be removed. Even with rugs or furniture, it is sometimes better to just replace the stained carpeting. Additionally, if your carpet is smelly, this is a sign that you need new carpeting! Carpets that emit a smell are often indicative of mold or mildew, so this is an important sign that you will want to contact a professional.

Poor Padding

Your carpeting is meant to provide cushion and comfort in the room, especially in a family or living room where you may be sitting on the floor often. The padding underneath is what offers this comfort, as well as a noise silencer and insulation. If your carpet has lots of wrinkles, or feels worn out in certain spots, it may be time to replace your carpeting.

Matted Areas

If spots in your carpet are matted, this may showcase a need for new carpeting. Rooms that see lots of traffic, as well as polyester carpeting, are at a higher risk of matting. Though there are ways to fix this, it is often difficult to do; if the matting situation is extreme, turn to new carpeting!
