If you haven’t replaced your doormat recently, it’s probably time to do so. Entryway doormats often collect dirt, debris, and moisture over time, which can cause them to stop looking nice. If you’ve noticed that your doormat is looking a little dingy, it’s probably been there too long. How often should you replace your doormats? Read on to learn why there’s no simple answer.

Showing Signs of Wear

Generally, you should replace your doormats whenever they start to fall apart or become discolored. Given the right circumstances, a doormat can last three to five years, but all of them will eventually need replacing. If your mats have stains that won’t wash out, or your coir doormats are shedding everywhere, it’s time to get a new mat.

Why Numbers Don’t Matter

Depending on who you ask, you should replace your doormat anywhere from every six months to every five years. However, the basis of these numbers are general assumptions, such as the type of doormat you have and how much foot traffic it gets. These circumstances won’t be the same for everyone.

Ultimately, there’s no number we can assign that’ll make sense for everyone. If your coir doormats are falling apart every six months from rain and heavy foot traffic, you may need to replace them often. However, replacing a more durable doormat that often could be wasteful.

What To Consider When Replacing Your Doormat

If you’re unsure how often you should replace your doormat, you should consider certain things. We’ve made a list of the most important questions to ask yourself below:

  • How often do people walk over your doormat?
  • How protected is the mat from direct sun and precipitation?
  • What kind of materials is your mat made of?
  • When was the last time you replaced it?
