Carpet is meant to be stretched tightly, flat and smooth against the floor. Bubbles, wrinkles and ripples can cause damage to carpet backing which leads to delamination. Allwein’s Carpet Cleaning carpet stretching services and carpet repair service can prolong the life of your carpet.
Bubbles in the carpet are unsightly and also pose a threat of danger if someone were to trip over the loose material. A small ripple can quickly turn into a large wrinkle and this leads to more wear and tear on the carpets. Stretching carpet areas will reduce or remove the ripples in carpeting.
The most common reasons for buckled and loose carpet are:
Heavy Traffic – if your carpet gets heavy traffic beyond normal foot travel (such as walkers, wheelchairs, office chairs, etc.) it may cause the carpet to loosen, even if it was properly installed. We use a quality carpet stretcher to restretch carpet for a better looking carpet.
Poor Installation – it is possible the carpet was improperly installed (due to insufficient or nonexistent stretching, or improperly securing the carpet) and will require restretching. Restretching carpet areas can be done by our qualified professionals performing our carpet stretching services.
Wrong pairing of carpet with padding – different types of carpet pile are intended to be used with specific types of carpet padding. It is important carpet backing is properly supported.
Moving heavy furniture – sliding heavy furniture across the carpet can loosen the tightness and lead to buckling and rippling. Allwein’s Carpet Cleaning carpet stretching services professionals can move the items before the carpet repair for a great finished job.
In addition to carpet stretching, Allwein’s Carpet Cleaning provides carpet patching, rug repair, carpet seam repair and carpet burn repair.
