Carpets can be around for a long time. Some can last a lifetime. The key is to take care of them. Even so, they will be subject to fading over time. Obviously, many carpets see incidents, like a pipe break, and do not last that long. Others show their age through rips and stains.
When you look at your rug in your home in Acton, MT, you may wonder if it needs to be replaced. More importantly, you will probably wonder how you'll know when to replace it. Don't worry. There are a few fairly obvious signs. They can tell you if you need to replace your rug.

1. Stains
You can hide a small stain under your sofa. You shouldn't have to scramble to cover up the stains from your last pipe break. This is true if the remediation company that repaired the damage recommended new flooring. They will likely recommend this because water damage can lead to mold.
New carpets often have a stain barrier. However, this can fade over time and leave your rug vulnerable. This is true for any spill, such as pet urine. Oftentimes, trying to remove stains at home can make them worse. This is true if you are using homemade or store-bought cleaners. Additionally, these spills will likely cause the liquid to seep deep into the carpeting. In other words, if you have a lot of stains, it is time to replace your rug.

2. Rips
A catastrophe, like a pipe break, can lead to rips as well. If there are small rips, they will likely not be replaced during your restoration, so you will need to replace the rug on your own.
It's hard to know exactly when to replace your carpet. If you take care of it, it can last for a long time. However, if it has many stains or rips, it should be replaced as soon as possible.
