Depending on the number of people and pets in your home, good quality carpet should last anywhere from three to five years when properly maintained. There may be times, however, for one reason or another that you should consider replacing your carpet regardless of how old it is. If you’re a resident of the Denver Metro area and considering new carpet for your home, contact the professional carpet installation team at Urban Design Floors. Our team has been helping homeowners get the floors of their dreams since 2001, and we can help you too! Contact our team today!

Stubborn Stains and Odors

Your floors get put through a lot. From water damage to spills and pet accidents, there are several things that can cause your carpet to become discolored and smell funny. When treated promptly and professionally cleaned, homeowners can sometimes prevent minor spills and accidents from becoming major eyesores. Other times, depending on what has stained the carpet, full replacement may be warranted. Substances like acids, grease, and bleach can stain and damage your carpet beyond repair. If your carpet has suffered irreparable damage in the form of staining and subsequent odors, give us a call today for a no-cost, no-obligation carpet installation estimate.

Water Damage

There’s nothing quite as damaging to your carpet and the pad beneath it as water. Whether from a plumbing leak or groundwater entering the home through a wall or window, excessive exposure to water will cause premature failure of your carpet’s fibers, its backing, and the pad. Water damaged carpet can suffer symptoms of delamination including wrinkling, buckling, and separation of the backing from the carpet, leaving it unable to be repaired. Additionally, if carpet is not thoroughly and properly dried following water exposure, the potential of bacterial growth is increased. This can result in staining and musty smells. Any and all of these conditions may require your carpet to be replaced.

 

Unsightly Wear and Tear

If you have a lot of people living in your home, the amount of wear and tear that your carpet is exposed to increases exponentially. Not only can worn carpet make a room appear dirty and unkempt, but it can also present a tripping hazard for family and guests. Signs of wear and tear can include traffic paths that are darker than the rest of the carpet in your room, frayed edges near transition strips, and carpet that is loose and appears rippled. In some cases, a simple re-stretching may do the trick to get carpet to settle back into its original condition. In other instances, carpet that is frayed, ripped, or threadbare is better off being replaced.
