The Process of Carpet Stretching

Before a carpet stretching service can begin, pre-planning must take place. If furniture is involved, we will determine the best course of action: empty out completely? Leave some items? Move certain items?

Before starting the actual carpet re-stretching, we will:

  • Determine in which direction the carpet needs to be stretched.
  • Remove or open metal transitions that could possibly be in the way.
  • Use a special tool to detach and lift the carpet’s edge up and off the tack-strips.
  • Inspect tack-strips for failure.
  • Then your carpet is stretched flat with a power stretcher to the proper taut and tension. Using a power stretcher allows us to correctly adjust the carpet’s tension. Carpet stretching service will give you long-lasting, bubble-free results.

  • Then carpet is then reattached back onto the tack-strips around the edges of the room.

  • All excess carpet is trimmed from edge of the room.

  • Finally, edges of the carpet are tucked under baseboards to give a neat look and appearance.

Things to know about Carpet Stretching in Raleigh, NC

Performing carpet re-stretching in a standard rectangle or square room can be a simple process. Rooms with multiple doors, dormers or custom built-in furniture take more time and effort to complete. Heavy bulky items and multiple angles adds additional time and labor to the job. Carpet stretching in a hallway may require remaking carpet seams.

We Use A Power Stretcher

A Power Stretcher provides wall to wall carpet stretching. It extends across the room from one wall to the other wall. By using lever action, the carpet is pulled across the room eliminating bumps and buckles. Power Stretching carpet produces better results than using a knee kicker.

What Causes Carpet to Buckle and Wrinkle in Raleigh, Durham, NC

In general, the main culprit of carpet buckles derives from inadequate techniques from underpaid carpet installers. Carpet installers that refuse to power stretch carpet in during the install contribute to wavy lumpy carpet. Furthermore carpet should be stored in a climate-controlled, dry space protected from soil, moisture and other contaminants. Carpet should also be stored on a flat surface until it arrives at it’s destination for installation. Failure to have your carpet stored in this manner could cause de-lamination and development of buckles.

Reasons your Carpet Buckles in the Triangle, NC

Your carpet should never buckle or get wavy during the manufacturer’s intended lifespan. Other factors include carpets being exposed to high heat for long periods of time. Also, sliding heavy objects across such as furniture without sliders can also form buckles. Lastly, water damage and over wetting during carpet cleaning can also add to the equation.

Carpet Re-Stretching Is a Great Home Improvement In Raleigh, Durham, NC!

Wavy, buckled carpets are a problem in many homes.  They are unsightly and heighten the chances of someone tripping. The lifespan of carpet becomes shortened if left loose for long periods. This can cause permanent damage to carpet.

Carpet yarn tend to wear much faster at the raised carpet ridges versus the lower flat areas. Excessive movement from traffic can bend the backing of the carpet. In return, causing it to weaken, and in some cases break apart. It is recommended to have your carpet stretched at the first sign of extra play or bubbles in your carpet. Get your carpet stretched to avoid permanent damage such as carpet delamination.

Carpet delamination happens when the secondary backing of the carpet splits or separates from the primary backing. Common causes include the following:

  • Continued traffic on carpet wrinkles or buckles
  • Overuse of solvent spotting agents
  • Rolling wheels across the carpet

  • Pet accidents left unattended
  • Adhesive failure in entry-level builders-grade carpets

What’s The Cost To Re-Stretch My Carpet?
