3 Reasons to Remove Your Carpet

Are you vacuuming once a week and scrubbing your carpet with DIY floor cleaners and still not seeing a difference? Carpet can be a hassle to keep up with, especially with kids or animals in the house. The floor removal experts at Speedy Floor Removal has compiled three reasons you may think about removing your carpet.

Why You Should Remove Your Carpet

Extensive Cleaning

Accidents happen in life. People spill drinks, track in dirt with their shoes, drop food on the floor, and so on. Unfortunately, if any of this happens on carpet flooring, you will have a hard time getting the stains out.
Even dirt is hard to get out of carpets. Small dirt particles tend to hide deep in the carpet’s fibers which can only be reached by professional cleaning tools. However, even with a professional’s help, there will always be some areas that just can’t be reached.


Carpet is like a magnet for dust mites, pet dander, dead skin particles, mold, and other allergens that may provoke allergic reactions. Carpet fibers then trap these allergens in hard to reach places that are hard to clean. For households with small children, this can be a big issue as children’s immune systems are more sensitive.

Old Age

Carpet has a shorter lifespan than most other types of flooring. It should be replaced approximately every eight to ten years. With proper maintenance, you may be able to extend the life of your carpet, but it will still need to be replaced at some point in time. You will know when it is time to replace it by the appearance, and sometimes even the smell.

Some signs could include:

  • Stains – There are stains on your carpet that no amount of cleaning has been able to fix
  • Wear and tear – Mattered carpet, tears, and significant wear
  • Smells – Lingering smells even after deep cleaning
  • Increased allergy symptoms – Older carpets catch and retain more allergens
