Why would you replace your flooring?
Whether you are decorating a room to create a completely new look or you just want to replace your flooring there are lots of reasons why you would do it.
You may have just moved into a new property and the flooring in some of the rooms needs replacing, or it doesn’t go with your new décor. Your carpet or flooring may be looking tired or worn. You may be decorating a room in your home and your existing flooring doesn’t go with your new colour scheme. Your flooring may not be working with your pet and it is making it hard work to keep it looking good, or you could be a landlord and new tenants mean you need new flooring in your rental property.
How often should you replace your flooring?
How often you replace your flooring depends on many things; the type of flooring you have, where the flooring is. A hallway flooring will need replacing a lot sooner than a bedroom floor where there is less traffic and daily use. The quality of the flooring will also have an impact on when it needs replacing and a budget carpet won’t last as long as a quality carpet, the underlay you use will also prolong the life of a carpet. Wooden flooring and tiles will last a lot longer than some laminate and most vinyl’s so there are many factors that can influence when flooring needs to be replaced.
Changing your Colour Scheme
You may have just decorated a room and your existing flooring’s colour or pattern doesn’t give you the look that you want. A new floor will really finish off a newly decorated room and make it look and feel luxurious, whether you decide to go for a new carpet or if you decide to change to wood or laminate, you won’t be disappointed.
Carpet can last anything from 2 to 15 years and it all depends on the quality of carpet and underlay when it was first installed, where it is in your home and if it has been looked after. Another consideration is; hallway carpet will need to be replaced more often than a bedroom carpet and if shoes are worn throughout your home then it will also probably need replacing sooner, as well as if spills been cleaned quickly, or if are there are lots of stains now showing.
A high traffic area’s carpet can sometimes start to go threadbare and this happens when the fibres of the carpet have been worn down over time, as well as the original colour or pattern fading, or the carpet looking thin in certain areas.
Carpets will lose colour and fade over time, however, installing blinds or curtains will help to prevent the sun from fading it. Keeping them as clean as possible, not wearing shoes around your home and taking them off as soon as you come through your front door will also help. Removing any spills or stains quickly with a good quality cleaner and having them professionally cleaned every 1-2 years will help to keep them fresh and looking like new.
If your carpet is looking thin, threadbare, faded or ragged, if it is lifting in areas or fraying around the edges, then it is probably time for you to think about replacing it.
When you have had spills and the stain remover hasn’t quite done the job then a professional clean may well remove them. If not, and your carpet is looking stained, worn and faded then it may be time for a new one.
Many carpets now have anti-stain properties and protection applied before it is installed, however, it doesn’t mean they are indestructible so when you have a new carpet make sure you blot any spills away quickly and use a good quality stain remover. The quicker you do this the more likely the stain won’t hand around.
Over time carpet can start to smell and let off different odours and when this happens it is difficult to completely remove. The smells may be from spills and stains, dampness or pets. Sometimes a professional clean will help to remove smells from your carpet but, often, they will return over time and its most likely that you will need to invest in a new one.
Carpets can lead to allergies for some people and the older the carpet the more likely it will have dust and dust mites engrained in it and it is difficult to completely remove and refresh. If this is the case then a new carpet or flooring will ease the possibilities of allergies and regularly hoovering and cleaning will keep the dust fibres away.
There are lots of things that can cause your tiles to crack including; dropping heavy items or sharp objects which is infuriating but very common. You can try and replace the tile that has been damaged but it's very tricky to cover it up. One cracked tile will unsettle and move the others and it can lead to your whole tiled floor cracking at certain points and becoming sharp and dangerous to walk on as well as being unsightly. If this is the case then you will need to consider replacing your flooring.
Ripped or Faded Vinyl
Vinyl floor is commonly used in kitchens and bathrooms and it is sturdy, water-resistant, scratch-resistant and often long-lasting, as well as being one of the cheaper flooring options.
Over time vinyl will fade, it can rip in certain places, dent and can lift if there is a lot of moisture, and if this happens then it is almost impossible to repair without it being seen. If this is the case then you will probably need to replace it with new vinyl or a different type of flooring.
Chipped Wood or Laminate
Wood and laminate flooring are extremely hard wearing and if they are looked after they can last for many many years. Wooden flooring can be sanded and re-varnished every couple of years and this gives it a new lease of life. Wood or laminate can fade if exposed to sun rays or it can be dented or chipped if anything heavy and or sharp is dropped on it. If this happens then you can sometimes just replace the damaged planks, however, if your flooring is a couple of years old you may see a difference in colour between the new planks and the older ones. If this is the case then you may consider replacing it all.
Your Flooring Doesn’t Work with your Pets
Some types of flooring are not easy to keep clean when you have pets, especially carpet. Their hair can build up in the carpet, even if you hoover regularly and they can bring in mud and dirt into your home which is really difficult to prevent. Wood or laminate flooring is often easier to keep clean if you hoover and mop it regularly compared to carpet. If this is the case then it’s probably a good time to consider replacing your flooring downstairs.
All of these things can be the reasons you may want to consider replacing your flooring and at CW Jones we can help you decide which is the best flooring for you as well as your budget.
