3 Signs You Need to Replace Your Flooring, Barnesville, Ohio

High-quality home flooring will last many years, but it won’t last forever. Eventually, it will be more affordable and effective to replace your floors than to try to repair them. The experienced staff at Flag Floors of Barnesville in Belmont County, OH, explain a few telltale signs you should consider replacing your floors.

How to Know When to Replace Your Flooring

  • Peeling Floors: Laminate and vinyl flooring often peel up at the edges or warp when their adhesives start to fail. This is often a result of prolonged water damage, but it can also happen after many years of use. To ensure your new laminate floor lasts as long as possible, don’t wet mop it—instead, use a dry dust mop and a vacuum with a floor-brush attachment. For occasional deep cleanings, use solutions that are specifically approved for your flooring material. If you’re not sure how to find the right product for your floors, talk with an expert at Flag Floors of Barnesville—they offer cleaning products from Bona®, Bruce®, Chem-Dry®, and more.

  • Broken Tile Flooring: For all their strength, ceramic tiles will crack after a strong impact, like dropping an appliance on them. You can fill individual cracks if there are only a few, but if the damage is substantial, there could be a problem with your subfloor or underlayment. If your ceramic tiles are falling apart, it’s time to replace both the tiles and the subfloor.

  • flooringStubborn Carpet Stains & Odors: If your carpet has spots, you may have experimented with vinegar, dish soap, or hydrogen peroxide. These home remedies only go so far, and then it’s time to try professional shampooing and steam cleaning. It’s a good idea to always use a professional service for steam cleaning, because high heat levels can cause stains to bind permanently to your carpet fibers. If these methods don’t work, you’ll have to replace your carpet. If you have pet urine odors, you might also need to replace the subfloor or underlayment.

If you’re ready to replace your flooring, you’ll find some great options at Flag Floors of Barnesville. They carry a large selection of hardwood and vinyl flooring, plus carpets and ceramic tiles.
