The Old Home Feature HGTV’s Christina Hall Wants You To Get Rid Of
HGTV host Christina Hall from "Christina on the Coast" said one necessary change in any older home is swapping out shabby and stained carpet for newer floor coverings.
Carpet shows its age and use perhaps more than any other flooring type, often becoming snagged, stained, and worn out due to foot traffic and spilled food or drinks.
Environmental factors such as sunlight, pets, and smoking can fade and discolor carpet, as well as make it harbor allergens you might not know are there.
Replacing an old and worn carpet will make your home not only more attractive, but healthier too. Hall suggests a change if your carpet exhibits stains or signs of wear.
She added that, while carpet installation was once the domain of professionals and lengthy home improvement projects, YouTube and online tutorials make it easy and budget-friendly.
Carpet has a lifespan of 5-15 years, depending on its quality and where it is in your home. Cleaning it regularly extends its lifespan, but if it’s over 20 years old, change it.
