Carpet stretching is a necessary service

When you purchase new carpet floors, 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.

Facts about carpet stretching

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 aids.

Excessive humidity, 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 what to expect, so contact us today.
