After a fire loss there are more than enough things to measure when considering restoring vs. replacement. Is there any physical damage like charring or permanent discoloration, odors, How close to the source fire was the material in question? All of these questions and more must be answered to determine if any particular content or structural item can be salvaged, it is no different with carpeting. One thing you must consider is the amount of soiling, if soot has gathered to the carpet backing or padding replacement is immediately recommended.
