Few things are better than walking around the soft carpet in your house. It is soft to the touch, and it looks incredible, but as the years go by, your carpet is going to show some wear and tear. Whether you’ve recently purchased a house that has old carpet or your house is in need of a facelift, there are a handful of signs that it’s time to replace the carpet in your home.

Floor Expo has spent years working on the floors of both homes and businesses. In that time, we’ve seen these signs many times and are glad that we can help. If you’re wondering whether or not it’s time for you to invest in new carpets for your home, today’s blog is for you. We are going to talk about a few of the signs that you can look for to better determine whether or not it’s time to start looking at new carpet with your local flooring contractors.

Matting

One of the reasons that people love carpet is because of the added comfort that it provides. When carpet has been in a home for a while, it inevitably starts to wear, but one of the first places that you’ll notice it is in the high-traffic areas. When carpet is walked on quite a bit, the pile will get matted and stay that way. Not only does this affect the overall comfort that the carpet can provide, but it affects the aesthetics of the flooring.

Stains

The messes of life come in all shapes and forms, but the messes that your carpets experience are almost always going to leave a stain. When you add children and pets to the equation, the chances of your carpets staining increase. That being said, stains are another one of the signs that tell you it is time to invest in new carpet. While one stain certainly isn’t reason enough to purchase entirely new carpet, multiple stains or stains in places that are frequently seen or used in the home are totally worth having your carpet replaced.

Padding

Again, comfort is one of the reasons that people love having carpet in their home. If the carpet is old, there’s a pretty good chance that the padding has lost most of its spring. Even if the carpet is stain-free and looks good, it’s going to be missing that comfort element that so many love. If that’s the case for the carpet in your home, you’re better off investing in some new carpet that is going to look great and feel great.
