Carpet Cleaning vs. Carpet Replacement: Which Is Better?

Carpet Cleaning vs. Carpet Replacement: Which Is Better?

If you're dealing with stained or worn-out carpets, you might be wondering whether to clean them or replace them altogether. At Zerorez® Atlanta, you can do either one. Our expert team has put in the work to learn both trades so that you can turn to the cleaning service you trust when it's time to replace your carpet flooring. Both options have their advantages and disadvantages, so it's important to weigh them carefully before making a decision.

Carpet Cleaning

Carpet cleaning is the process of removing dirt, spots, and odors from your carpets using specialized equipment and our revolutionary Zr Water® that allows us to clean your carpets without using harsh chemicals. Here is how we see the pros and cons of opting for a regular carpet cleaning:


  • Cost-effective: Carpet cleaning is generally much cheaper than replacing your carpets altogether. Cleanings are dependent on the size of the room and the type of cleaning required.

  • Quick and easy: Carpet cleaning is a relatively fast process. At Zerorez®, you can expect a clean room in just a few hours, and your carpets will be dry within a day or so.

  • Eco-friendly: Carpet cleaning is a more environmentally friendly option than carpet replacement since it reduces waste.


  • Limited effectiveness: Carpet cleaning may not be able to remove all stains, particularly if they are deep-set or have been there for a long time.

  • Shorter lifespan: Even with professional cleaning, your carpets may be on their last leg, rendering the cleaning somewhat useless.

  • Risk of damage: If your carpets are old or fragile, they may not be able to withstand the cleaning process, and could become damaged or even destroyed. In this case, our experts will advise you on the proper next steps to avoid damaging your carpets.

Carpet Replacement

Carpet replacement involves removing your old carpets and installing new ones. Here are some of the pros and cons of replacing your carpet altogether:


  • Improved appearance: New carpets will instantly make your home look fresh and updated.

  • Longer lifespan: New carpets will last longer than cleaned carpets, particularly if you invest in high-quality materials.

  • Increased value: Replacing your carpets can increase the value of your home, particularly if you plan to sell it in the near future.


  • Expensive: Carpet replacement can be more costly than a cleaning, but worth the price when necessary.

  • Time-consuming: Carpet replacement can take longer than a cleaning, but duration depends on the size of the area and the complexity of the installation.

  • Disruption: During the installation process, you may need to temporarily move furniture and other belongings out of the way, which can be disruptive.

Ultimately, whether you choose carpet cleaning or carpet replacement will depend on your specific circumstances, budget, and preferences.
