Carpet Stretching FAQ
Most frequent questions and answers about carpet stretching
Carpet stretching is a process where our professional technician uses a specialized tool to pull the carpet taut and remove any wrinkles or ripples that have formed over time. This process can help restore the appearance and durability of your carpet.
Carpet stretching may become necessary over time due to natural wear and tear, heavy foot traffic, or improper installation. As the carpet fibers become loose, wrinkles and ripples can form, which can affect the appearance and functionality of the carpet.
If you notice wrinkles, ripples, or bumps in your carpet, it is likely that your carpet needs stretching. Additionally, if your carpet has become loose or is pulling away from the edges or corners of the room, it may need to be stretched.
Most types of carpets can be stretched, including Berber, plush, and loop pile. However, the type of carpet and the extent of the damage will determine the best method for stretching.
The length of time it takes to stretch a carpet depends on the size of the room and the extent of the damage. In general, most carpet stretching jobs can be completed within a few hours. Larger rooms or more extensive damage may take longer to repair.
