Carpet Replacement Vs. Carpet Cleaning: What’s Best for You?

Over the past decade, Be Green Carpet Cleaning has made a name for itself as a leading provider of carpet cleaning services. Since 2011, we have been helping our clients maintain the beauty and longevity of their carpets while also making their homes healthier. One question we hear often is whether it’s better to get a professional cleaning or consider carpet replacement. So, let’s dive into it so you can make the best decision for your home.

When to Opt for Carpet Cleaning

Living room with sofas with a freshly cleaned carpet. A pattern of clean lines marks is visible in the carpet indicated that it has recently been professionally cleaning. A Be Green carpet cleaner can be seen in the top right corner operating a carpet cleaning machine. This is an example of choosing a cleaning rather than carpet replacement.At Be Green Carpet Cleaning, we use a 5-star very low-moisture carpet cleaning process. Our services typically range from $99 to $500, depending on the scope of the work. Considering the high cost of purchasing and installing a new carpet, regular cleaning is certainly a more affordable alternative. Here are some instances where professional cleaning would be a better choice than replacing your carpets:

  1. High-Quality Carpets: If you’ve invested in high-quality, expensive carpets, a professional cleaning can help maintain their quality and appearance, prolonging their lifespan.
  2. Historic or Antique Carpets: Replacing antique or historic carpets and rugs may not be an option. Professional cleaners can restore these carpets carefully to ensure there is no damage.
  3. Light Wear and Tear: If your carpet’s main issue is dirt, stains, or light wear and tear from regular use, a professional carpet cleaning can help it smell better, look better, and last longer. They can also add a stain guard treatment that will provide added protection in between cleanings.
  4. Mildew and Mold: If there’s a mildew or mold problem that hasn’t deeply penetrated the carpet padding, professional cleaners may be able to effectively remediate the issue before it becomes a serious health consideration. This is especially important in more humid climates.
  5. Allergy Relief: Carpets can harbor allergens like dust mites and pet dander. Regular professional cleanings can help reduce these allergens and improve your overall indoor air quality.
  6. Move-Out or End of Lease Cleaning: If you’re renting and moving out, a professional carpet cleaning can help you get your full security deposit back.
  7. Odor Removal: Carpets can trap unpleasant odors from pets, spills, or smoke. Professional cleaners have specialized treatments such as DeoGerm to eliminate these odors properly.
  8. Appearance Maintenance: For businesses, maintaining the appearance of a carpet can be crucial for the image of the company. Regular professional cleaning can keep the carpet looking (and smelling) fresh and inviting.
  9. Sustainability: If you’re looking to minimize your environmental footprint, having your carpet professionally cleaned instead of replaced can reduce landfill waste and the energy required to manufacture and transport new carpeting.

Moreover, all of our work is guaranteed for 30 days. If you’re not completely satisfied or notice any issues after your appointment, do not hesitate to call us.

Mark and Patrick were very congenial and attentive and explained everything they were going to do. They were in and out quickly and the rugs and carpets looked SO much better. Mark was also very generous with add-ons and pricing to suit my budget. I’d definitely call on Be Green Carpet Cleaning again when needed.

When to Consider Carpet Replacement

Old carpet in a room that is worn down. Example of carpet replacement.

Despite the effectiveness of professional cleaning, there are times when it makes more sense to replace your carpet:

  1. Heavy Wear and Tear: If your carpet is significantly worn out, frayed, or has large, irreparable tears, it may be time to replace it.
  2. Deep Set Stains: Some stains are too stubborn or have been set in too deeply for even professional cleaning to remove. Examples include pet urine stains, road tar, colored dyes or pigments, and coffee.
  3. Post-Disaster Cleaning: After severe flooding or a fire where the carpet is severely damaged, professional cleaning can’t help restore the carpet.
