Should you replace the carpet or clean it?

by | March 22, 2023

Whether to replace a carpet or clean it depends on the extent of damage or wear and tear. Here are some factors to consider when deciding whether to replace a carpet or clean it:

Age of the carpet: If the carpet is old and has been in use for a long time, it may be time to replace it. Carpets usually last for around 5-15 years depending on the quality, amount of foot traffic, and maintenance.

Stains and odours: If the carpet has stubborn stains or bad odours that cannot be removed with cleaning, replacement may be necessary. In some cases, deep cleaning or professional steam cleaning may be effective in removing the stains and odours.

Wear and tear: Carpets can wear out over time and show signs of damage such as frayed edges, tears, or holes. If the damage is severe, it may be better to replace the carpet.

Budget: Replacing a carpet can be expensive, and cleaning it may be a more cost-effective option. However, if the carpet is beyond cleaning or repair, replacement may be necessary.

Allergies: If someone in the household has allergies or respiratory problems, replacing the carpet with a hypoallergenic flooring option may be a better choice.

In general, regular cleaning and maintenance can extend the life of a carpet and prevent the need for replacement. However, if the carpet is beyond cleaning or has extensive damage, replacement may be the best option. It is always advisable to consult with a professional carpet cleaning service to determine the best course of action.
