Have you ever had problems with your carpet and considered having it replaced? Before you do, stop and consider carpet stretching. Carpet stretching is the process of restretching the carpet, removing wrinkles, and returning it to a flat surface.
When carpet is installed, quality installers will use a power stretcher. Too often, though, installers will rush through the job, not bothering to use one. This allows the carpeting to shift over time. There’s not much you can do as a homeowner, and how should you know what tools they’re supposed to use? Other factors like weather change, traffic, moisture, and repeated wear affect the way carpet behaves over time, and may cause wrinkles.
Stretching your carpet is something many people don’t think to do. By doing so, this will save you thousands of dollars on what you would have spent replacing the carpet. The majority of the time you find wrinkles, the carpet can be salvaged, repaired, and restretched.
Your best bet is leaving it to a professional. Carpet stretching is no task for the layman at home. While you could go to the store, rent the proper tools, buy new tack strips, enlist a buddy to help you, and give it your best shot, why not save all that time, money, and frustration, and call your local carpet stretching experts?
It will save you plenty of headaches, and the restretching team will be in and out before you would have been back from the store.
