4 Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Carpet

Carpeted floors add warmth and comfort to your home and come with other benefits, like noise reduction and improved air quality. While you likely work hard to keep your carpet looking nice, it will eventually reach the point where it is beyond cleaning and will need to be replaced. Typically, most wall-to-wall carpet needs to be replaced every 8-10 years. Consider Ayoub Carpet Service for a quick and painless new carpet installation process when your carpet has reached the end of its life. But, let’s first take a look at four signs it may be time to bid farewell and invest in a replacement.

New Carpet Installation1. Visible Wear and Tear

If your carpet has noticeable wear and tear, it is probably time to replace it. Whether there are areas where the fibers are frayed or flattened, bald spots in the material, matted, or the seams are unraveling, your carpet is likely beyond repair. Cleaning will not be able to restore the damaged carpet fibers. 

2. Stains That Won’t Budge

Do you have stubborn stains on your carpet that won’t budge? Our cleaning process can usually remove even tough stains through multiple passes of hot water extraction, providing a deeper clean and a dryer finish to help prevent stains from reappearing. However, if cleaning has become ineffective in eliminating the stains from your carpet, then it’s time to consider replacing it.

3. Water Damage

When your carpet sustains water damage, just like anything else, restoring it to its former condition is difficult. Whether you’ve had a plumbing leak, flooding, or even just excessive moisture buildup, you could be left with mold and mildew growth, discoloration, and a lingering musty smell on your carpet that cleaning won’t be able to fix.

4. Persistent Odors

If your carpet emits an unpleasant odor that persists even after thorough cleanings, it may be time for replacement. There could be odors trapped deep in the carpet fibers from past pet accidents, mold, or mildew growth. Cleaning can go a long way in making your carpet look new again, but if you keep putting in more effort with declining results, it’s time to invest in new carpet.
