The Scary Truth about your Old Carpet

Does your carpet smell? Is it stained or worn-down? Have any pets or children with accidents? If you answered yes to any of these questions, it may be time to replace your carpet! At Carpetland USA, we can help you find the perfect carpet to make your home feel fresh again. So, how can you really tell if you need a need new carpet? Here are a few signs: 

Heavy Traffic

Realistically, your carpet should be replaced every 5 to 15 years. Foot traffic and quality play a large role in replacing your carpet. Areas with heavy foot traffic, such as living rooms and basements, will require replacements quicker. Furniture also plays a role in the usage of carpet. Rearranging furniture periodically can reduce the compression on the carpet.

Worn Down, Well-Used

Worn down, well-used carpet not only takes a toll on your carpet’s health, but also on your family’s. Lots of loose yarn or ends are a good indicator of your carpet being worn down. Stains can also be detrimental to carpet if left untreated. Having old carpet can even make you and your family sick! A lot of mold and bacteria can live in worn down, well-used carpet. Mold and bacteria can remain in the carpet if it is not cleaned or vacuumed regularly.

Ultraviolet Rays.

If your carpet is near a window or patio doors, it can be subjected to ultraviolet rays. These rays can deteriorate the carpet’s appearance, subjecting it to discoloration. It also reduces its ability to withstand the regular wear and tear. If possible, try to use a window treatment to offer your carpet some protection from sunlight.
