WHEN DOES YOUR CARPET NEED STRETCHING?
If you have wrinkles in your carpet, then it is time to stretch your carpet. This can be caused by poor installation, heavy traffic, or the carpet is just ageing.
Why stretch right away?
1. Delaying the carpet stretching job can lead to permanent damage. If it stays too long, the carpet many never lay flat again.
2. Over time as people step on the carpet wrinkle it will start to crack and then rip.
3. It can be a hazard issue by tripping over the over the wrinkles. When the carpet snags your foot, it is easy to lose balance.
A simple way to know if it's time to stretch is to go the center of the room and grab the carpet. Try to lift it up and then let it go. If the carpet does not snap right back into place, then you need to have your carpet re-stretched.
Don't Replace it.
We love our pets here in the Charlotte Metro area, but they can sometimes cause damage to our carpets. Some dogs will dig in the carpet, or cats will sharpen their claws, tearing and snagging the carpet. These areas can be cut out and replaced with a remnant piece or a piece taken from the back of a closet. In the vast majority of cases, the repair will be completely unnoticeable, saving you hundreds or thousands of dollars.
Also, due to daily traffic, moving furniture and just plain wear, the bonding of your carpet starts to weaken and deteriorate. This leads to a problem called buckling.
With buckling your carpet will start to have bulges and wrinkles. This creates a dangerous fall risk, particularly with the elderly or toddlers.
Also, over time, if the buckling is not remedied, your carpet will never lay flat again.
