3 Signs It’s Time for a New Carpet

Older, discolored carpet on stairs

While we all love that carpet that’s been a fixture of our living room for years, there comes a time when it should probably be replaced with a more comfortable and stylish option.

Whether it has been years since you had your current carpet installed, it has developed permanent stains or it no longer feels good when walked upon, a new carpet will be the perfect solution to your problems.

In this blog, we will discuss in detail the instances in which it is best to throw your old carpet to the curb and to have a new one added to your living room or other space.

It’s been years since your carpet was installed

While it may be obvious, age is a definite factor when it comes to deciding on having your carpet replaced. If you had the current carpet in your home installed before the new millennium, it will most likely look worn down and out of style.

Even with proper care and cleaning, dirt and dust have taken their toll on your older carpet. Most carpet experts suggest having carpeting older than seven years replaced as it can host a wide array of germs and allergens that only get worse as it ages.

There are stained, discolored areas

Another sign that it’s time for a new carpet is when there are obvious stains and discolorations in your carpet.

Over the years, you’ve probably spilled coffee, wine, soda and other drinks on your carpeting at some point, which can leave your carpet stained and permanently discolored.

Furthermore, sunlight can dim bright-colored carpets, so it’s important to pay close attention to areas near windows as well.

Even if the stains or discolorations are faint, you still know they are there and won’t feel as good about your living space. After all, it is supposed to be a place of peace and relaxation after a long day’s work.  

There are hard, uneven areas

This sign may not be as noticeable, but there comes a time in the life of every rug where it is just not as comfortable to walk or lay down upon.

If you’ve been noticing flattened, hard or loose areas in your carpeting this is a clear sign that it is time to swap out your old carpet. Everyone deserves to have a soft, plush carpet in their home and shouldn’t have to settle for something that doesn’t feel good under their feet.
