Is it time for a new carpet?


Thinking about getting a new carpet? Take a look at what you’re got and see if any of the below sounds familiar.

Worn down and worn out
It’s just one of those things that some areas in the home or a room get a lot more traffic than others – think stairs, doorways and hallways. However, if you notice that the carpet is becoming matted down and frayed, then we’re going to say it certainly time to invest in a new carpet.

Top tip: Going over the area with a vacuum with a brush attachment could help to breathe new life into a carpet with only a little wear and tear, however, if the carpet is still looking lifeless and flat or even discoloured then it’s time for a change.

Bad smells
Does your home always seem to have a stuffy and muggy smell even after you’ve just vacuumed or cleaned? It could be that your carpet is to blame; dirt can very easily work its way into the actual fibres of the carpet, especially if your carpet hasn’t been shampooed regularly. Think; all those spills, paw prints and muddy shoes and pet accidents can all add up to unpleasant and lingering smells.

Top tip: Try sprinkling your carpet with baking soda and leaving it to soak for a few hours before vacuuming thoroughly. However, if the smell is still there, even if you have called professionals in, then it’s probably time to call it a day and treat yourself to a lovely new carpet – just in time for the summer too!

This is a fairly self-explanatory point: if no matter how hard you try, you cannot get rid of a pesky stain or two, then it’s time to call in the professionals. If they don’t succeed, then it’s time to cut your losses and visit us! Stains are unsightly and will make even the stylish of homes look unloved.

Increased allergy symptoms
It’s a fact of life that carpet fibres can attract dust, dirt and other allergens that can, unfortunately, produce troublesome symptoms. If you find yourself suffering from frequent colds or allergy symptoms, then it could be your old carpet – you’ll probably find relief from these symptoms once your carpet has been replaced, trust us!

Looks terrible
Let’s be honest with each other here; does your carpet simply look dated, old or beyond repair? You won’t believe the difference a new carpet could make to your home and your mood! Whether you go for a deep and luxurious Saxony, a practical twist or a textured carpet, we’ve got something for every taste and budget.
