Carpet Replacement: When Do You Need to Do This?

People who live with you see everything that happens in your house, from tiny feet to wine spills, or mud from soccer practice. They're a part of your home, too. However, at some point, you'll have to decide when it's time to replace your home's carpet.

Seeing your carpet every day, it can be hard to notice how it changes over time. You can use this information to see if it's time to replace your carpet. We've put together a list of the top things to look for when you're deciding whether or not to do this.

A few signs that your carpet might need to be changed:

Stains can't be hidden anymore.

Seeing a home isn't what a home is for. It's meant to be lived in. While this is great when it comes to making a space your own, it can also mean that your carpet takes a beating over time because of spills and stains. The good news is that if you act quickly, many stains can be removed or minimized, but some stubborn patches can be almost impossible to get rid of, especially if you use DIY carpet cleaning methods.

Over time, you'll come up with more creative ways to hide stains, from decorative rugs to indoor plants. But if you're running out of rugs to cover up stains, it might be time for a new rug.

It smells even after you clean it.

Coming home to smelly carpet is the worst. It doesn't matter if you get rid of the visible stain. Some substances are hard to get rid of, even if you clean them up. This is often the case for people who have pets. Even if you spot clean little accidents right away, sometimes the smell can stay, which means that the odor may have gotten into the carpet fibers or the padding.

It has bald patches or mats on it.

You might want to think about getting new carpets if you have kids who like to bowl cricket down the hallway or dance in the living room. Carpets get a lot of wear and tear over time. Over time, this can cause your carpet to wear down or become matted, especially in areas that get a lot of traffic. Polyester carpets are a little more likely to get dirty and can't be cleaned.


If you want to have a soft surface under your feet, carpet is a good choice over other flooring options. You can do this because your carpet has a layer of cushion under the surface. This helps with both comfort and sound. There are signs that the padding isn't as good as it should be if the carpet is uneven or if the carpet makes you feel like you're walking on hard concrete.


Getting water damage is the worst thing that can happen to your carpet. It leaves behind stubborn stains and a damp smell. Dampness is more common in Australia's more humid areas, like Queensland, which is in the tropics. Check for signs of mould and mildew, as well as a bad smell. This could be a sign that your carpet needs to be changed.


There are more sniffles and sniffles around the house.

Carpets that are more than 10 years old can be a good place for allergens like dust, pollen, mites, and other things that make people with allergies feel bad. Even if you clean your carpet on a regular basis, you may find that your carpet is the source of more stuffy noses and sneezes at home because the fibers in the carpet are getting old.


Your carpet makes your decor look like something from a TV show from the 1970s.

Whether you're trying to make your home look new or sell it, old or faded carpet can make a room look much older, even if you have a lot of other things there. You should be able to come home to a space that is welcoming and pleasant, in line with your tastes and today's high standards for design.



This depends on the type of carpet you have in your home, as well as why you want to get rid of it. If you live in a home with two or three people, you can expect to see carpet fibers start to fray and age after about 3-5 years. There are some things that could affect how long this lasts, like whether you have young kids or pets.

There are some people who only have to change their carpets every 10 years because they keep them clean.
