The right area rug may just be the last finishing touch you need in your space. Area rugs can add another level of dimension and design to your home when they are properly placed. However, just like anything else, area rugs aren’t going to last forever. Keeping an area rug too long can dampen the design of your space. Heart of Texas Chem-Dry is here to talk about signs that point to replacing your area rug.
How Often Should You Replace Your Area Rug?
If you have had your area rug for a long time and are wondering when you should replace it, there are several signs that we would like to point out that indicate maybe it’s time for you and your area rug to part ways.
– Area Rug Odors: It isn’t uncommon for older area rugs to omit a foul smelling odor. This obviously depends on how you have cared for the rug, but if there is any pet urine or heavy staining, it can all leave behind a horrible smell that you may not want to try to remove but rather, just replace the rug all together.
– Water Damage to Area Rug: Water damage in your home can be devastating. If the water isn’t removed from the fibers of your carpet right away, it can lead to the growth of mold and mildew. At that point, you will likely need to replace your rug because it will be a health hazard to everyone in the home; especially those that have a respiratory condition in the first place.
– Wear Spots on Area Rug: If your area rug is in a high traffic area, it can really take a beating. This can leave your rug looking rather worn over time. In fact, there are some rugs that have actual bare spots where the fibers were worn completely off, and the backing is showing through. If you start to notice wear spots on your rug, it may be time to think about replacing it all together.
– Tough Area Rug Staining: Even when you are extremely careful as to avoid spilling anything on your rug that could leave behind an unsightly stain, things happen. If your rug is somewhere like under the table where people are constantly eating, you may have stains on your rug that are difficult to remove. If the stains have gone unnoticed for a long period of time, the stain has set deep into the fibers and can be even more difficult to remove.
