Should You Clean Your Carpets Or Replace Them?

Should You Clean Your Carpets Or Replace Them?

There are many benefits to professional carpet cleaning.

And there are several reasons why cleaning as opposed to replacing your carpets is always the preferable choice.

Firstly, carpet is an expensive investment that can be costly to replace. 

Good quality carpets can cost thousands of pounds, while cleaning is a fraction of the cost of replacement.

Replacing your carpets is also quite an inconvenience. Furniture will need to be removed before old carpets can pulled up, and you may even need to book the day off work.

There is also your lifestyle to consider before purchasing new carpets.

If you have young children, you might want to wait until they outgrow the clumsy years before investing in new carpets.  

And if you have pets, you definitey want to wait until your pets are fully house trained!

In these circumstances, even if your carpets have a few permanent stains, it is wise to choose professional cleaning rather than purchasing new carpets.

This will keep them fresh and hygienic while you negotitate these tricky years!

 Professional carpet cleaning not only improves the look and feel of your carpets, it eliminates the odours, allergens and dust, leaving your home clean, healthy and smelling fresh!

But if the above points don’t apply to you, what are the telltale signs that your carpets would benefit from being replaced?

Excessive Traffic Wear

Some areas of carpet will wear quicker than others.

High-traffic areas around favourite chairs and sofas, hallways and entrance areas or areas that usually show the most wear.

It may be that they have darkened from the soles of boots and become noticeably worn, matted or flat.

Over time, these areas may respond less to professional cleaning and eventually replacing the carpet would be a sensible choice.

Irreversible Damage

There are occasions when even our specialist carpet repair service is not going to bring a carpet back from the brink!

Large tears without available off-cuts and permanent stains on carpets that cannot be dyed are two examples.

Any damage that results in a severley compromised appearance means that replacement my be your only option if budget allows.


Carpet delamination is the separation of the carpet’s backing from the carpet and the adhesive that holds them together.

It can be caused by poor manufacturing, excessive moisture, poor installation of the carpet and ageing.

Once seperation occurs, you may notice bumps, wrinkles, loose areas or a detachment of the carpet from the floor.
