A carpet is an expensive proposition. They do not come cheap and they are not easy to install. You would need the help of professionals to install or remove the carpet; here are 5 signs to tell if your carpet needs replacement.

  1. Carpet stains: Do you have large and unsightly stains all over your carpet? Are you covering carpet stains with rugs and furniture? Are the stains impervious to stain removers? If the answer to these questions is yes, then you need carpet replacement. Carpets come with stain resistance but the property fades away with the passage of time. If the stains are caused by pet urine, feces, vomit, mildew or mold, these biological substances will absorb in to the carpet padding and lead to build up under the carpet. Choose to replace your carpet in order to avoid a health hazard.
  2. Wear and tear: A matted carpet along with significant wear and tear on the main walkways is the major sign that the carpet is in its last legs. Polyester carpet fibers have a bad reputation of matting and losing their form. Once it falls down and the tuft is lost, you can say goodbye to the carpet. Small rips and tears can be a DIY but for larger areas, it is better to get the carpet replaced.
  3. Stinking carpet: If you haven’t cleaned in some time, or you have a pet, then you may notice a lingering smell on the carpet. However after sufficient cleaning, the odor should be gone. If it does not, it indicates that the odor has penetrated deep into the carpet fibers, and even into the carpet pads and the sub floor. In advanced cases it might also indicate mildew and mold. Replace the carpet for a cost effective solution.
  4. Carpet padding condition: The carpet padding acts as a buffer to the carpet, supporting the carpet, working as a foundation when you walk on it and making it comfortable to move around on it. Carpet padding also unfortunately absorbs a lot of spills and cleaning the carpet does not clean the padding. Signs of a padding beyond it time include unevenness, crinkling sounds, and wrinkles.
  5. Allergy: A lot of times, old carpets trap allergens as well as particulate matter, which will make your allergies flare up. If you are experiencing increased allergies it may be time to bid your old carpet goodbye.
