Maintaining your carpets with regular cleaning can help extend the life of your carpet. However, if your carpet resembles any of the below, these might be signs you need a new carpet.


Have you got stains on your carpet that cleaning products or a deep clean can’t get rid of? Do you find yourself covering up those carpet stains with rugs or furniture? This may signify that you need a new carpet; treat yourself!

Smelly Carpets

If you’re a pet owner or not a huge fan of cleaning, you may walk into the room and notice a lingering smell on your carpet. A deep clean can be a solution, but if it doesn’t, and you can still smell your carpet, it may mean the odour has penetrated through the carpet fibres or the underlay, which may indicate mould or mildew. In this case, it will be more cost-effective to replace the carpet and start afresh.

Disintegrated Underlay

If your carpet has lost that cushiony feeling underfoot, and you can feel your floorboards underneath, especially if it’s a high traffic room, it may be your underlay that’s causing this. Whether you decided not to get new underlay for your carpet at the time, or your carpet has been down for a good many years now, you may feel like it’s time for new underlay and new carpet.
It might be that your carpet is still in good nick, in which case you may be able to get away with buying new underlay and relaying the carpet.

Wear and Tear

Has your carpet reached the point of no return? Rips and tears and threadbare carpets that you find yourself covering with rugs or furniture may have reached the end of its life.
