Should I replace my Carpet?
The carpet in your home is a very important factor that can be a selling point. Don’t know what to do to your carpets before putting your house on the market? Your flooring can make a huge difference in the first impression. If you have stains, tears, and missing patches this can decrease the value of your home. Depending on the amount of damage to the carpet you can get it professionally shampooed which can transform it. Or you can buy a professional carpet cleaner and do it yourself. There are pros and cons to doing it yourself but if you have several stains you may need a professional’s help.
Stubborn stains that even a professional can not get out may require you to replace your flooring. Damage caused by floodwater, mold, biohazards, or other harmful allergens will also require you to replace your carpet. It is crucial to do an evaluation and walk through your home to evaluate what route you should take. Sometimes carpet without stains or other damage needs to be replaced due to its age and the wear. Generally, carpet that is 5 to 10 years old should be replaced. This is a pretty large range but several factors play a role in your flooring’s condition. Even high-quality carpets that are in rooms with low traffic can begin to show age after several years. You’ll begin to see areas with more wear due to foot traffic and wear to the threading. Padding can also begin to deteriorate.
