Hold the groundsheet up to the sun or a light if indoors. If you can see holes in it, time to replace it.

I've used groundsheets just about all my cycle-touring life. I had a close look at a tent we used at the weekend that is eight years old and has been used a lot at various locations around the world, and the floor is in beautiful condition. For this tent (and others), I use an "emergency" groundsheet that is silvered on one side, red on the other. The silver side goes upward when the weather is cool to cold, and downward when warm to hot. It works for us.

By the way, I have had the font discussion with the OP before. To no avail. Just the way it is.
