Benefits of Carpet Stretching

Bulging Carpeting? Save Money by Having It Professional Stretched 

Over time, your carpeting can start to become loose and start to detach from the tacking strips when it was first installed. This can occur for a variety of reasons, such as pushing and pulling furniture over the carpeting, rather than lifting it, or if it was not properly installed. Should this happen, the carpet can start to bunch up and bulge in specific areas, typically in those high-traffic areas. 

If you ignore the bulges, not only do they create safety hazards in your home or business, since people could easily trip on them, fall down, and get hurt, it also causes these carpeting to wear quick in this location. With constant foot traffic, within several months to a year, the carpeting will wear away, and the bulge starts to turn into a rip with frayed edges. 

The most effective way to remove bunched up section and bulges from carpeting is with carpeting pulling and stretching services in Toronto and the GTA, available from Dr. Carpet. Ideally, you will want to have these services performed as soon as you notice there is a problem with the carpeting to prevent it from becoming torn, frayed, and damaged further. However, in the event this does occur, there are repair and patching options available, as well, to ensure your carpeting’s appearance is restored. 

Does Stretching Make Carpeting Last Longer?

Carpet stretching could extend the life of your carpeting in cases where it is bunching up, bulging, or has become detached from the tacking strips. Professional carpet installers use special pulling tools and other equipment to stretch the carpet, gently and carefully, so it is flatter. This process removes bulges and prevents them from be worn down faster and holes, rips, tears, and fraying from occurring. 

What Prep Work Is Needed Before Carpets Can Be Stretched?

In order to correctly stretch carpeting, prior to the work, everything needs to be removed off of the carpeting. All furniture, lamps, end tables, desks, chairs, and so on, have to be taken out of the room and placed in another area of the home, temporarily. After the carpet has been stretched, the items can be replaced back into the room right away. In most cases, our professional installers can provide assistance in removing items from the room where the work is being performed. 

Should I Get Any Other Related Carpeting Services Completed At the Same Time?

It is highly recommended to consider getting your carpets professional cleaned, repaired, and patched at the same time. Since everything will be out of the room, it makes performing these services simpler, easier, and faster. Patching and repair services resolve problems with cigarette, cigar, fireplace ember, and iron burns, beverage and bleach stains, seaming problems, and Berber runs. This is one of the most cost-effective and efficient ways to resolve any small areas of permanent damage to carpeting, which provides invisible results. Afterwards, most people cannot even find where the damage was before the repairs.
