Trying To Decide If You Need A Carpet Cleaner? 

Considering that your carpets take up the majority of floor space in your home, how often do you actually get down to check on the health and cleanliness in all areas?

Obviously, some areas of carpet are going to be more used and exposed than others, but here at Holloway Pest And Carpet we still think that it is important to make regular checks.

This is especially the case when you are deciding whether you need to replace something or just enlist the services of a professional carpet cleaner in Toowoomba. Here are some classic signs that will usually tell you it is time to get a new carpet rather than a carpet cleaner.

Water Damage

If you have experienced a problem with leaking pipes in the home or a more dramatic flooding event, then it is safe to assume that your carpet has seen its best days. 

Any kind of moisture that clings to the carpet and hides in corners is going to turn into mould, and this can actually start to become dangerous if you or anyone else in your house has certain allergies or asthma. It is also almost impossible to remove the musty smell left behind on a dried carpet.


You might have taken the best care possible of your carpets, but if some areas are just threadbare now due to repeated footfall, then it is time to sort out a replacement. 

There is nothing that can be done to replenish a carpet that has been well worn down. On average, you can expect a carpet to last anywhere from 5 to 15 years after the day of installation depending on your activity levels.


Most stains are easy to get out if they are tackled soon after the event, but an accumulated number of stains that are left to dry and harden just turn into bad news. If you have a carpet that has just taken too much punishment over the years, then a cleaning service might not even be able to get everything out. In those cases, it’s time for a new one!
