Carpet a little lumpy lately? Wonder why that is? Well, there really is no one good explanation. Some carpets stretch continuously while others never do. If you've got one that likes to stretch, it should be repaired. Left alone it will continue to get lumpy which makes the carpet wear out faster.
At Fair Price Carpet Cleaning we will ensure that your carpet is re-stretched according to IICRC & CRI guidelines, which include the following:
Even if you take good care of your wall-to-wall carpet, it’s likely to get loose over time and lose some of the good looks it had when new. With constant walking and pressure, the fibers stretch and you start noticing the difference. You have to be careful by how much you stretch your carpet, since overstretching can ruin it! That’s why calling a carpet re-stretching expert like Fair Price Carpet is so important. We’ve spent years in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut on carpet re-stretching jobs, often fixing the bad restretching jobs that others did before us.
How carpet re-stretching works?
Our Carpet Re-Stretching expert starts off by removing everything from the room that can restrict the free movement of the carpet. Generally a wall-to-wall carpet will have gripper rods along the edges that hold the carpet backing and keep it tight. The expert releases the carpet from two sides. He then uses a power stretcher and knee kicker in one direction to give the carpet that look of tightness. The carpet is regripped on the gripper rods. He then repeats the action in the other direction. Now the carpet restretching is done and all the wrinkles have been removed.
Always have repairs & re-stretching done prior to any cleaning. The carpet should be restretched with a power stretcher until drum tight in both length and width. All Repairs First – Then Clean! Do not allow inexperienced people to attempt repairs. Most carpet cleaners do not possess the experience or have proper tools to professionally repair your carpet. Like anything, always look to the "specialist" for the best job.
