How to Choose a Carpet Repair Service


Before you spend hundreds of dollars replacing a carpet, you may way to consider simply repairing your carpet. When you use an experienced carpet repair service they can affordably solve problems resulting from things like wrinkling, stains, fading, and snags. Repairing a carpet does not take a long time, but it does take a professional to get the job done correctly.

What is carpet repairing?

Carpet repairing is simply removing a damaged piece of carpet and replacing it with a matching piece. This piece may be a leftover remnant from the original installation, a sample piece from the shop, or it could be a piece taken from a closet or other area that isn’t likely to be seen every day (the bad patch of carpet may be used in the spot where the patch was taken from).

Once the professional carpet repair technician has found a suitable replacement, he or she will carefully cut out the part of the carpet to be replaced. The replacement piece is attentively fitted into the hole in the carpet and is glued in place. Seams are rendered invisible and the carpet is trimmed to match the surrounding areas.

What to look for in a carpet repair service.

While there are many services out there that advertise carpet repair and even do-it-yourself kits available, it’s always the best choice to a professional carpet repairing company. A professional carpet repair service will:
