How to tell if the Carpet is Ruined or Not

Is your carpet ruined? It's hard to tell sometimes. Sometimes, it looks like the carpet is in good shape but there are stains that won't come out. Other times, you can see right away that the carpet has been ruined by a spill or by pet accidents. If you're not sure whether or not your rug needs professional cleaning, then this article will help!


Check for discolorations

One of the easiest ways to tell if your carpet is in bad shape is by checking for discolorations. If you see any areas that are a different color than the rest of the carpet, then it's likely been stained and needs to be cleaned.

Check for pet accidents

If you have pets, then you're probably familiar with pet accidents. Check your carpets for any spots where urine or feces may have been left behind. These stains can be difficult to remove, so it's best to address them as soon as possible.

Look for signs of mold or mildew

Mold and mildew can form on carpets when they get wet and don't dry properly. This can cause serious health problems, so it's important to address any signs of mold or mildew as soon as you see them.

Check for tears or rips

If your carpet has been damaged by a spill or pet accident, there may be tears or rips in the fabric. These can be difficult and expensive to repair, so it's best to address them as soon as possible.

Examine the carpet pile

The pile of your carpet is the part that you can see when you look down at it. If the pile appears to be matted down or if there are areas where it's missing, then your carpet may need to be replaced.

Use a vacuum to see if there are any signs of dirt

If you have pets, then it's likely that there is dirt and hair all over your carpeting. Use a vacuum to see if any of this is visible on the surface or if it has gotten down in between the fibers of your rug. If you find signs of pet hair or dirt buildup, then consider having an expert clean your carpet for you!

Look for loose ends in the weave 

Loose ends can be a sign that your carpet is in bad shape. It's easy for loose ends to get caught on things and for them to pull out with the vacuum, so this should not be taken lightly!

Check how easily it pulls up when you try to tug at it

If one part of the carpet has unraveled, then all other parts may soon follow suit. Check every inch of your rug carefully before deciding if professional cleaning services are necessary or not!

Feel for bumps under your feet

If you're feeling bumps under your feet, then it's likely that there are areas of the carpet that need to be fixed. This can be a sign of a number of different problems, so it's best to have an expert take a look at it!

Call a professional

If you're not sure whether or not your carpet needs professional cleaning, then it's best to call a professional. They will be able to inspect the carpets and let you know what needs to be done. Depending on the condition of your carpet, they may recommend either regular cleaning or full replacement.


Your carpet may appear to be in good condition, but it's always best to have a professional give you an opinion. They'll be able to tell you whether or not the rug needs cleaning and they can even fix any problems if there are any.
