How can you tell when it’s time to replace carpet rather than just clean it? With older or poor quality carpet the time to replace the carpet comes much
sooner than most homeowners want. Damaged carpet can become ugly and dangerous. So how can you tell when it’s time to say goodbye to your carpet?
If the damage is bad enough the carpet can begin to lift up from the subfloor, bunch together, shed, or even rip. These kinds of damages can lead to
tripping and other danger for children and others. You may notice that this kind of damage tends to happen where pets frequently are, kids’ areas, or other
high traffic areas. This means lots of people see it and there are lots of opportunity for tripping and injuries.
If your carpet is beginning to bunch, rip, or lift from the subfloor, steps need to be taken. If your carpet is of a higher quality and you act quickly
enough you may be able to save yourself some hassle and money. If acted upon quickly a simple re-tacking to the subfloor can be done. If there are some
holes, rips, or bunching, a patch or stretching method can be utilized rather than replacing the entire carpet.
The decision of when to replace an entire carpet is ultimately up to you. However, replacing entire house, floor, or even room full of carpet can be a
hassle and pricey. Believe it or not you can preserve the life of your carpet by having quality, experience professionals clean your carpet regularly.
