Even if you have deep pockets it is not fun to think about the expense. There is a solution though that can save you a lot of money, carpet repair.

Carpet Repair Solutions

  • Carpet Patching – Patches are often the best solution for a stain that won’t come out or when your dog has dug up some carpet. A professional can get this done with carpet remnant cut to fit the size of the damage and by using seam tape to fit the patch in nice and clean within the carpeted area.
  • Carpet Stretching–Wrinkles in your carpet?Your repair expert can stretch out a room or hallway nice and tight to get those stubborn ripples out.By using a power stretcher a carpet can be tightened so far that ripples will become scarce for up to 5 if not more than 5 years!
  • Seam Repair – Often times when new carpet is installed seams are used to fit the carpet all together across doorways, hallways and in large rooms. Over time a seam may began to separate.A professional helper can repair your seam, making it as invisible as it was when your carpet was freshly installed.
