The Importance of Carpet Repair and Re-Stretching Services

Homeowners with carpeted floors know all too well how much effort it takes to keep carpets in good shape. Even when they’re careful, the carpet can still start to wrinkle, fold, and ripple. More obvious issues, like tears and other damage, are also a cause for concern. If these seemingly small problems are neglected, they can worsen and eventually make the carpet unusable.

Carpet repairs not only prevent the current damage from escalating, but they can restore the original beauty of the carpeting faster and is also more affordable than replacement.

Carpet Burns

Carpet burns are damages caused by heat or fire. Light bulbs, irons, and cigarettes are usually the culprits. Since burns are highly visible, they make the carpet look unappealing and can be worse for wear. Bonded inserts, or patch carpet repairs, are the best way to repair these types of damage.

Buckled and Loose Carpet

High foot traffic, movement of heavy furniture, and improper installation can lead to buckled and loose carpet. This results in folds and loose sections in the carpet, which are unappealing and can be a trip hazard. Carpet re-stretching is the go-to repair for this problem; see the re-stretching section to read more about the whole process.

Snags, Seams, and Unraveled Carpet

Pointy objects, scratching pets, and excessive vacuuming can unravel the seams and threads of a carpet. Aside from being visually unappealing, these frayed threads can continue to pull further apart until entire sections are bare. Cutting off the damaged fibers will usually do the trick, but extensive damage can only be repaired with professional carpet repair help. Instead of excessive vacuuming, contact us for carpet cleaning services

Ripped and Torn Carpet

Excessive force from external sources can rip and tear carpet apart. This unsightly damage can be a hazard, especially if tack strip is exposed, and it will likely get worse if it is left unattended. Bonded inserts, or patch carpet repairs, are the best way to repair these types of damage.

Carpet Re-stretching

One of the most visible issues in carpets is folding, rippling, and wrinkles. This usually happens because of loose-fitting carpet, which is the result of incorrect installation, high foot traffic, or poor-quality padding underneath. When homeowners notice the above signs, their carpet is due for re-stretching.

Carpet Repair Professionals like our team at CertaClean will stretch the carpet tighter to the walls to obtain a precise fit. To ensure sturdiness and long-lasting results, we use power stretchers and pole systems before fastening the edges for maximum retention.
