When You Should Consider Replacing Your Carpet



-While carpet cleaning can help, there comes a point when replacement is the best option.

-Knowing when to replace carpet can save money and hassle in the long run.

Signs It’s Time to Replace Carpet:

• Severe wear/matting with carpet not laying flat

•Many deeply embedded stains that won’t come out despite professional cleaning

•Large areas of missing/broken/worn fibers creating an uneven surface

•Carpets over 10-12 years old, especially for high-traffic areas

•Fading, discoloration and dye loss that cleaning cannot remedy

•Odors/mildew that won’t go away even after multiple cleanings

•Significant pet damage/stains beyond spot treatment

•Permanent indentations/creases from heavy furniture

•Rips/tears/burns that are too extensive to repair effectively

Cost of Replacement vs. Continued Maintenance:

-Discuss when the cost of continued cleaning, repairs and treatments exceeds the cost of new carpet.

Benefits of New Carpet:

-Freshens up home’s aesthetic and boosts curb appeal

-Provides a clean slate without history of embedded soils and stains

-Returns underfoot comfort and cushioning

-Adds longevity and reduces long-term maintenance expenses.


-Reiterate signs that indicate worn carpet has reached the end of its useful life and needs replacement.

-Recommend readers assess carpets objectively and consult with professionals if unsure.
