Carpet floors in Amarillo, TX from Gowdy Flooring

What is the lifespan of a carpet?

The lifespan of carpet flooring varies from product to product and includes many various factors. Your in-home traffic levels, how often the flooring is cleaned, and the type of fibers your flooring is made from are all part of the overall lifespan factoring process.

Carpet lifespan factors you should know about

One of the first things that determine the lifespan is the fiber you choose. For instance, if your home is busy or if you have pets or children, fiber such as nylon or polyester is a practical and durable option to keep your floors looking better longer.

Average carpet in average households with average traffic can last between three to five years, which is why most apartment complexes re-floor their carpeted units at least every five years. However, if you choose a high-quality soft surface that is well made, has stain protection added, and is cleaned every twelve to eighteen months, you can easily see lifespans of up to 20 years or more.

In between these two are various other fibers, added benefits, and maintenance factors that can give you different carpet lifespans. If you'd like to know more about the options for your specific space and lifestyle, be sure to visit us to speak with a flooring professional at your convenience.
