When you purchase new
, they must be stretched as part of the installation
service to ensure their expected lifespan. But they can also require
stretching after a few years of use, especially if there are high
levels of traffic in the room. In either situation, it’s essential
to choose a professional service to get the job done correctly.
New carpeting requires
a tight stretch just before securing it from wall to wall. This
ensures that the flooring will not loosen, as it sometimes does after
installation, which can then cause ripples and bunching. Instead,
you’ll enjoy the smooth, comfortable underfoot feel, just as you
should with a proper installation.
With proper care and
maintenance, your new carpets should stay in place absolutely for up
to five years or more. You’ll experience a greater lifespan from
this material if properly stretched right from the start. It also
provides a safer environment, especially with small children just
learning to walk or elderly family members with mobility issues or
bulky furniture, and age can all cause carpets to wrinkle, bunch, or
become loose, especially in areas that also experience high levels of
traffic. When this happens, restretching your carpet could add
impressive newness to the appearance of your flooring. Realistically,
your carpet should only be restretched once over its lifespan, after
which you should consider a replacement.
The process requires
that you empty the room of furniture or anything else that sits
directly on the floor. It does take a while to carry out this
process, and we can let you know precisely how long it will take when
we discuss your flooring needs in person. We'll make sure you know
