When Is It Time To Replace Your Flooring?

Replacing your flooring can be a considerable expense that homeowners put off as long as possible, and proper maintenance, professional cleaning, or professional refinishing can help your flooring look beautiful for a long time. At some point, though, that flooring will start to wear and look grungy and old. So how do you know when it is time to finally replace that old flooring? Here are some tips:


The lifespan of carpet is going to depend greatly on the type of carpet that you have. In general, carpet has a lifespan of 5 – 15 years. You’ll know when it is time to replace by how it looks, even after it is vacuumed and cleaned. Looking for staining, matting, or even smells in your carpet to know when it is time to replace. The more foot traffic, spills, or animal accidents the shorter the lifespan will be.


The choice to replace your hardwood flooring can be a bit more tricky. With solid hardwood, you can refinish your flooring several times, which means that it can last a lifetime or longer. Most other problems, such as scratches, gaps, squeaks, or buckling, can be repaired. The most common reason to replace hardwood is to change the overall look of your floors. Fashion tastes change, and if you are not satisfied with the parquet oak that runs through your house, for example, then you might consider replacing it.

Engineered hardwood is a bit different since you only have a limited number of refinishes. It can still last a long time, up to 100 years, but once you have refinished it and it starts to look dinged up and grungy again, it might be time to replace it.


How long your flooring your flooring lasts greatly depends on the amount of traffic, how well it is taken care of, and the quality of the flooring. This is one of the most significant benefits of getting high-quality flooring. You will have flooring that will last a long time, saving you money in the long run.
