Making a lasting impression is important. Chances are the first thing a person will notice when they visit your home is how your carpet and floors have been maintained. Quit putting throw rugs over the problems and deal with the issues that hamper the appearance of your carpet over time. Carpet repairs and stretching can be the answer to your problems
Common Problems That May Require Carpet Repair and Stretching
If you have a smoker in the home, one of the most common problems is burns. A dropped ember can leave an unsightly burn mark.
To make a carpet repair, you need to have the burned area replaced with a matching piece of carpet. When done correctly it is virtually invisible.
If your carpet starts to exhibit bumps or waves, this can be simply fixed by having your carpet stretched. Sometimes the carpet comes loose from the original install and sometimes the carpet just stretches out.
If you do not have this repair done and have the carpet stretched it can result in a trip and fall at worst and a visible blight in the least.
Other Problems That Need Carpet Repair and Stretching
Over time your carpet can lose its luster, it can get flat and not have the lift that it used too. The carpet should not have a stiff feel but remain soft. This condition can be greatly improved with carpet cleaning, raking and trimming.
Sand and grit from your shoes, cleaning products that have left residue and just normal wear will take its toll on the carpet. Professional steam cleaning can restore your carpet to something that is much more attractive.
