Deciding on whether or not to purchase new carpet is a decision many homeowners face at least once during their ownership. Purchasing new carpet for your home is a big expense, and the decision shouldn’t be made lightly.
Here are three questions to consider before purchasing new carpet.
1. How old is the carpet? Consider the age of your carpet most carpets can last up to 30 years with proper upkeep and professional cleaning. If your carpet is under 10 years old, you may want to look at other options available.
2. What’s the condition of your carpet? Take the time to inspect your carpet for wear and tear. If there are only a few areas that are worn thin, you may be able to place throw rugs in those areas to hide the worn carpet. Hallways and entry ways wear out before the other areas of your home due to the heavy traffic.
3. Noticeable stains and odors? While you’re inspecting your carpet for wear, you need to check for stains and any odors that may be present. If there are stains, a good carpet cleaning may be the solution.
