Repairing Carpets

One of the most common form of carpet repair is something called, “carpet stretching.” Professionals will use carpet stretching when the carpet starts to bunch up or ripple in your home. If you experience small ripples, this is from moving heavy furniture on the floor. If your carpet is not installed correctly, it will also make small ripples as well. Small rippling will not need to be replaced right away as it is not a major concern, but rippling that is more extensive will need to be replaced as soon as possible. If not, the whole flooring may need to be replaced completely due to this.

Carpet stretching can solve most of the carpet’s problems and this is even a low expense. If the flooring is installed or manufactured poorly, this is when you may need to replace your carpet. Carpet stretching is an easy technique that the professionals at White Knight Carpet Rescue can perform with no problem at all. This technique consists of pulling up all of the ends of the carpet and stretch it out until it is taut. Once the flooring is pulled out, the technician will cut away the excess and simply put it back in place. They will then secure it in place, so the carpet does not move out of its original state.

For a professional to properly stretch carpet, the whole process will require several tools. This repair job along with many other repairs of the carpet will need a slotted blade knife. This tool will allow the technician to separate the flooring around the edges. An awl and hammer are also used to separate the pile from the tack strip. An industrial staple gun is used to secure the carpet back in place. This is one of the most important tools a professional could use. The power stretcher comes in first for the most important tools for this job and a knee stretcher, or kicker, is then typically used to finish off this process.
