Why replace your carpet in your home or office when it can be repaired. Carpet can be repaired using a variety of professional methods, saving you hundreds even thousands of dollars. One of the most common carpet repair is carpet patching. Carpet patching is the process of cutting out the damaged area of carpet and replacing it with a good donor piece. The donor piece can come from leftover carpet from the original installation or from a closet.
A common carpet repair in Nashville, TN is stretching carpet. The process of stretching carpet is when the carpet is detached from the tack strips, stretched from one end of the room to the other, reattaching the carpet to the tack strips then the excess carpet is cut off. This will remove waves, buckling and rippling making the carpet much tighter. A power stretcher is always used when stretching carpet. This will produce a much tighter stretch than using a knee kicker.
Stretching carpet can extend its life, improve the appearance and remove tripping hazards. Carpet stretching is required when the carpet has become loose or wrinkled. People will often describe carpets that have these problems as being wrinkled, having bumps, wavy, buckling, rippling, or loose. This is often caused by carpeting not properly stretched when first installed. Some lesser known causes of loose carpeting are temperature and humidity or improper carpet cleaning. Carpet will react to the effects of heat (above 95°F) and cold (below 65°F) by expanding and contracting. Carpet Installed in a home with no HVAC system when it is cold can become hard to handle and can be difficult to stretch. After the carpet has warmed up it will expand and then become loose. This will lead to waves in the carpet. For this reason it is very important to have the home temperature set between 65 and 95 during and after the carpet installation. When a home goes from cool to hot on regular bases the carpet will become loose. Improper carpet cleaning is a big problem in Nashville, TN. When too much moisture is left in the carpet after cleaning, the carpet backing can become loose. If the carpet is saturated it will cause delamination (separation of the secondary backing from the primary backing). Delamination is permanent and cannot be repaired. There additional risk of mold and mildew problems if water is left in carpet for as little as 24 hours. Stretching is also used to refasten carpet that has pulled away from the wall or threshold. If your carpet was pulled back or remove due to house leveling, foundation repair, construction or flooding, it can be reinstall. Pad replacement is also available. Berber carpet can be stretched too. Stretching carpet can be a simple in a square room. But can become complicated in rooms with more than one door, future, coves, and custom built-in like desk, shelves, and or a bookcase. Stretching carpet in a hall may require the remaking of carpet seems going into other rooms with carpet. A power stretcher is used for all re-stretches and installations. This will produce a much tighter stretch than using just a knee kicker.

We use an induction heating system instead of the traditional hot iron. With this new technology your carpet patch looks better and is more durable. We NEVER use glue guns, pressure-sensitive tape (sticky tape) or double side tape for carpet patches or seams. P.S. tape and double side carpet tape is meant for temporary repairs and will NOT last. Glue guns are messy and if not done properly the patch will look badly and not last
