Your carpet can look new again with our repair and restoration service.
One type of carpet repair is known as carpet stretching. When the carpet is first installed it usually looks great. Over time buckles or wrinkles can start to show up. You might wonder what causes this. Well, it’s caused by a few things:
1.Carpet was not power stretched upon installation, thus leaving the carpet loose.
2. Excessively wet carpet due to weak extraction equipment like “Rug Doctors.”
3. Bulging humps in the carpet can occur because of heavy furniture.
4. Areas with heavy foot traffic weaken the backing of the carpet.
5. Pushing extremely heavy objects across the carpet, such as furniture also weakens carpets.
If these wrinkles are left in the carpet and neglected, this will actually make the problem worse. Why, you might ask. Here’s the answer. If the portion of the carpet sticking up or bulging up is in a heavily trafficked area, your shoes leave soil in that part of the carpet.
In other words, the wrinkle will become filthy. If left unattended, the fibers will begin to wear down and come out of the wrinkle. Then you have a costly repair on your hands.
We have a simple and effective method for stretching the carpet which gets rid of the wrinkle and brings the carpet back to its original condition. We use a mini-power stretcher to stretch the carpet to the wall or joint if in a hall.
Once the carpet is stretched flat, we then trim off the excess carpet and tuck it back under the baseboard. If in a hall, we release a joint or seam from one end and stretch excess over opening, trim off excess and re-seam carpet.
We are experts in this and the results are beautiful. Once the carpet is stretched, it’s unlikely that it will ever need to be stretched again.
We will move any furniture from the area that needs stretching. Sometimes not all furniture needs to be moved due to the location of the buckle and/or direction of the buckle.
However, if you have extremely valuable antiques that you would rather move yourself, that’s fine. If you prefer that we move them, consult with us first to let us which pieces are heavy or valuable.
Please know that we treat all furniture very carefully as if it was our own. What’s important to you is important to us.
We offer a 1 Year Guarantee on all stretching and repair jobs performed.
We can easily repair the carpet by patching a piece of carpet from the closet or extra carpet in your attic or garage. We have successfully patched numerous stains; such as stubborn ink, nail polish, latex paint, and even bleach discolorations.
The results are amazing. 9 times out of 10 your carpet repair will look brand new and you won’t even be able to see the patch. This is really smart and will save you hundreds of dollars.
We can patch burns, holes, or tears just like a stain. We can even replace the pad if the burn damaged it. Holes and burns are easy to fix.
Tears take a little more attention, depending on the carpet type and how bad the tear is. Tears either have to be patched or re-seamed.
Once completed, you will not be able to see the patched area. Berber carpet is the exception to the rule, and can be difficult to repair especially if it’s patterned.
We can install new tack strips if the nails have smashed down and don’t grab anymore. We can also install new brass molding tack strips or covers for transition areas.
If there’s something under the carpet or pad causing a hill in the carpet, we will open it up and remove the object. Then the carpet will lay flat again.
If there is anything you are curious about, but it isn’t mentioned here, let us know and we can discuss possible solutions.
A couple of things will help our job tremendously. Please pick up kids toys from open areas of carpet and stack them on the bed or in an area where carpet is not being stretched.
Also, please remove any clothes, socks, or shoes from areas to be stretched. Lastly, please vacuum all the carpeted areas that need be stretched, as this will help our job go much faster.
