Water damage

If you’re wondering when to get a new carpet after a flood, you need to consider the damage to your carpet’s padding and the sub-floor. If water has damaged the padding, it may be time to replace it, or you can choose to leave it in place until the damage has been repaired. In some cases, leaving the carpet alone may be the best choice, but you’ll want to be sure to hire a professional restoration company such as Magic dry, to take care of it.


When is it time to get a new rugs or carpet for mold damage? There are many factors to consider, and the most important is the value of the carpet in question. What type of fiber is the carpet made of? Natural fibers include wool, silk, bamboo, and animal skin which are more expensive than synthetic fibers such as acrylic, nylon, and polyethylene. The area affected by mold is another factor to consider. If the mold has spread from one corner of the room to the rest of the carpet, it will require a different type of carpet.


There are many reasons why you should replace your carpet, but odours are probably one of the top ones. While it is true that your carpet might be past its prime, you can still remove many of the odors and make it smell new again. To eliminate urine odor, use a black light to reveal the odor. Depending on the level of the smell, it may take several treatments to get rid of the problem on your own but it will be much faster and cost-efficient to hire a professional carpet cleaner from Magic Dry.

High traffic areas

If you have carpeting in high-traffic areas of your home, you may be wondering when it is time to get a new one. High-traffic areas show wear and tear before other areas in the home, such as hallways, stairwells, and pathways through common rooms. While you should clean them more often than other areas, you may also want to consider getting a new carpet for these areas once they start showing signs of wear and tear.

Padding degrades over time

The padding under your carpet should be replaced when it begins to show signs of wear and tear. This layer provides cushioning and insulation in your home and is responsible for sound-dampening properties. As your carpet ages, it may start to look and feel wrinkled, degrade in some areas, and lose its shape completely. It may also become less comfortable to walk on in general. Luckily, you can prevent this problem by replacing the padding when you replace your carpet.
