If you want long lasting carpets, you need to give them the correct care and maintenance they require. There will come the point, however, when you need to replace them. Here’s how you can tell.

Is It Time to Let Go?

If you wish to enjoy the benefits of carpeted floors for a long time, you should care for your carpets, vacuum them regularly, and have them professionally cleaned yearly. Over time carpets start to lose their fluff, texture, color, and good looks, and that’s almost unavoidable. How will you be able to tell if it’s time to let go of your carpets and replace them? You’ll see some of these signs.

Impossible to Remove Stains

Most stains can be removed if you take care of them promptly. Even if you don’t manage to clean off the stain on your own, you can always call a professional to do it for you. However, there are some spots than even the carpet cleaners can’t remove. If you can manage to hide those impossible stains then good for you, but if your carpets look more and more like a Dalmatian, it will be better for you to replace them.

Nasty Smell

Carpets can easily absorb many odors if not cleaned properly. Usually, most smells disappear after a good wash or vacuuming. If the odor remains, even after you cleaned your carpet, it means that it has penetrated into the carpet fibers, padding, or subfloor. It can also be a sign of mold. If you want to get rid of the stench or the mold, you will need to get rid of your carpets.

Increased Allergies

Clean carpets provide plenty of health benefits such as reducing allergies. But if you notice your allergies acting up only when you’re at home, your carpets might be to blame. A professional carpet cleaning can probably fix the problem, but if the damage is severe, you will need to remove them.

Age and Aesthetics

Carpets don’t last forever. Their looks and feel will fade, and they will become unfashionable as well. If your carpets’ color has faded, they have become wrinkly, or if the padding is non-existent, they need to go. You also should remove them if they look unattractive and outdated.
