Carpet Stretching & Repair

When Should I Power Stretch My Carpets?

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. Over time, you may see your carpet stretch and begin to have lumps, waves or ripples. This often happens to new carpet poorly installed. We also find that older carpets, due to various reasons, can also exhibit this condition. Not only is this rippling unattractive but it can be a tripping hazard. If you have any of these conditions, we recommend “power stretching”.

The Process of Power Stretching

Power Stretching is the process of pulling your carpet up along the edges and using a specialized piece of equipment to re-stretch it back to the proper position. This maintenance can extend the life and look of your carpet. A carpet that is properly stretched allows for more effective carpet cleaning. Call today for your carpet stretching evaluation and appointment with a professional carpet repair technician.

Unfixable Stains are Repairable

If you have a stain that is deep into the fibers or covers a larger area, you’re going to need to replace the damaged section. Hopefully you still have some remnants of carpet that you saved when it was originally installed, but if you don’t, you can still get a replacement section from the back of a closet.

Remember, all carpet has a grain or texture as a result of the way it’s manufactured. Brush it one way the fibers stand up, and brush it the other the fibers seem to lay down. You want to make sure that any replacement piece you use is positioned so the grain is running the same way as the rest of the carpet. Also, we suggest that replacement pieces are less noticeable if they are cut in the shape of a triangle or a circle. Squares and rectangles somehow catch the eye.

Cutting and Plugging

With the price of carpet these days, we all want to make sure that the carpet in our homes lasts. That’s why one of the most disheartening things that can happen is to get a stain or a burn on your carpet. However; just because your carpet has had an accident doesn’t mean you need to replace it. You may be able to patch or fix the damaged section.

Seam Repairs

Heavy foot traffic, improper installation or poor quality can all contribute to seam damage on carpets. Carpets with torn seams or frayed seams should be repaired. Our professional and certified carpet repair specialists can repair your seams to like-new conditions.

Threshold Repair

Carpets that meet up to tile, stone or wood surfaces sometimes need threshold repairs if carpets are pulled away from or damaged at the threshold. Our repair specialists have the right tools and expertise to provide the carpeting with a nice clean threshold.

Carpet & Padding Re-Install

If your carpets were pulled back due to pet damage or water damage and left off the tack strips, we can reinstall the carpet for you. Also, if you a carpet or padding that needs installation, our professional and carpet repair/installation staff can re-install carpets and padding.

Dear Chem-Dry: Amazing! That’s the only way I can describe the job you did on my sofa and love seat today. I have never written a testimonial letter in my life, but your service deserved it. My wife was to the point of replacing the two pieces, which were in good condition except soiled by use. I was looking at spending several thousands of dollars to buy new living room furniture. While they do not look new, they look as well as any three-year-old, light-colored fabric sofa and love seat I have ever seen. The last minute decision to clean the stairwell was a good one as well. With the dog and I tramping sand and dirt up and the stairs every day, I could not believe you got them looking as good as you did. Thanks again and you will have all my future carpet cleaning business. I will be sure to tell my friends about your company.
