Carpet is a very expensive investment in any home. When you buy new carpet, or purchase a home with existing, good-quality carpet, you want that flooring to last as long as possible, right? Oftentimes, people will purchase homes and instead of trying to have a ripple in some carpeting repaired, a stain removed, or a hole fixed, they buy all new carpet without realizing how much money they could have saved by repairing these minor cosmetic problems.
The truth is, carpet can be relatively easy to repair – and repairing is a lot cheaper than buying brand new carpet. Plus, paying to repair tears, holes, or stains not only makes the carpet look better, it also prevents more damage in the future.
Hiring an expert might sound like an expensive option, but that is not always the case. In fact, bringing in an expert to repair some flaws and make sure the job is done right could save you quite a bit more than if you attempted to fix the problems on your own, or chose to replace all of the existing carpet.
Here are three simple reasons to invest in carpet repair:
Okay, sure, we already talked about this and it is a no-brainer. But if you paid a lot for the carpet, paying to have it repaired will hopefully feel like an investment worth protecting. Plus, if your carpeting is insured or carries a warranty, trying to do any repair work yourself could void the insurance policy or warranty. Check your paperwork!
The most common types of damage we see in Sun Prairie homes are burns, tears, and stains. Other common issues include burn marks, pet odors, and even normal wear and tear that has caused carpet to stretch or look a bit unsightly. Professional carpet cleaning companies have special tools and cleaning solutions to remove just about any stain, and any odor that might accompany it.
If your carpet is lumpy or wavy, a small crew can come in and stretch the carpet, tightening and straightening the surface, in not time at all! Keep in mind, doing this yourself could just compound the problem and cause more damage.
Experts are available in your location to help you repair your carpet back to a healthy status. Before you choose a company to work with, be sure to read customer testimonials and reviews to get a good idea of each company’s reputation. Pay careful attention to the expertise of the company you choose. Are they members of carpet cleaning organizations? Have they been in business for very long? Do they look reputable? Trust your gut!
