This is a difficult question to answer without seeking professional help. In this blog, we’ll discuss when you should replace your carpet, from warning signs to carpet’s expiration dates.
Carpets are said to be able to last for about 5 to 15 years depending on the quality of the carpet, so the process of replacing your carpets should last you a good decade at best. This is without considering the wear and tear of everyday life that your carpet must handle, from damage from pets and kids to natural disasters that may cause damage it’s difficult to estimate the general lifespan of a carpet. A carpet that is taken care of may last for up to 15 years, maybe even more depending on the carpet quality. But if the carpet faces extensive water damage, overall damage and staining from kids and pets, your carpet may only last for the minimum of five years. The lifespan of a carpet can be extended, however, by regular vacuuming and carpet cleaning.
Carpet replacement is often put off unless a major concern regarding your carpet is found, that concern frequently involves mold. Though a professional’s inspection is often the best answer to whether or not you have mold, you can also determine if it’s possible your carpet has mold by the warning signs, such as if you notice an odd odor coming from your carpet or if it’s an unusual color or extensively damp. Finding mold in your carpet may shorten your carpet’s lifespan and require a carpet replacement sooner than ladder.
