How often should I replace the carpet in a unit?

How often should I replace the carpet in a smoke-free rental that has had no major damage to it? Should I just do it by sight or every 3-4 years?

3-4 years might be a bit long ...

3-4 years might be a bit long depending on what types of tenants you have but in general I would say that the sight(and maybe smell) test is the one that matters. Carpet that is well taken care of can have a pretty long usefull life as long as pets, kids, smokers etc are not involved.
