Your carpet is a work of art, showcasing all the memorable events that have taken place in your house. From the muddy footprints of kids’ feet when they come back from soccer practice, to the stains of the wine spilled, your carpet has been there for everything.
It might be hard for you to decide, but these signs will help you know when it’s time to get your carpet replaced.
You are no longer able to remove or hide the stains
The stains and spills on your carpet will show the toll it has taken over the years. You might be using all of your might with stain removers and detergents that promise not to leave any traces of the spill, but sometimes there can be persistent patches that refuse to come off.
Over the years, you might not even bother with the new stains. If you have reached a point where you are no longer able to remove or hide the stain, it’s a sign to get your carpet changed.
Your carpet smells, even after scrubbing it
Even if your magic stain remover has lifted the stains, if it leaves a stinky smell that stays, you might want to consider a carpet change. Often, those carpeted houses with pets have a certain odor that might not be easy to get rid of.
The carpet shows bald patches
Especially those carpeted houses that have toddlers and children who like to run around throughout the house or play ball in the corridors, the carpet is bound to start thinning and show signs of patching and bald spots.
The carpet’s cushion is lost
The one benefit that carpets have over hardwood or laminated flooring, is the silky smooth cushioning that feels good on the feet. If it feels like you’re walking on what feels like concrete, it’s a clear-cut sign to get the carpet replaced.
