Carpet Stretching Cost is Far Less Than Replacement

Poor carpet installation invariably leads to the necessity of carpet re-stretching. Other contributing factors may include environmental conditions, old carpet, or failing tack strips. Do you require carpet stretching? If so, the signs will be unmistakable. You’ll notice unsightly bubbles, wrinkles, or significant buckling in areas, making it challenging to move furniture and potentially embarrassing for visitors. Moreover, it poses a tripping hazard. If your carpet exhibits ripples or waves, professional stretching is imperative. If you have questions such as the cost of carpet stretching, it’s important to note that, depending on the carpet, stretching can be significantly more cost-effective than replacement—there’s simply no comparison. Carpet stretching typically costs approximately 80-90% less than carpet replacement and can usually be scheduled for the same week, subject to our availability.

Why is carpet stretching necessary in Minneapolis? Failure to stretch your carpet will result in premature wear and deterioration. Perhaps you’re curious about the stretching process. We utilize a power stretcher to ensure professional stretching and guarantee fabulous results. We offer warranties on most of our carpet stretches, provided we are allowed to adhere to industry standards. It’s important to note that carpet stretching can only be executed correctly using a power stretcher, not a carpet kicker. If you’re researching carpet stretching or repair, it’s likely due to the original installation being done with a kicker. I can almost GUARANTEE it!

The Difference between Carpet Re-Stretching and Carpet Cleaning Will Make Will be a Pleasant Surprise

The rooms lie empty, the carpet freshly stretched. We always advise cleaning the carpet immediately after the re-stretching process. Carpet functions as a filter and requires regular cleaning. After all the effort of moving furniture, now that nothing obstructs, we can thoroughly vacuum and clean the carpet from wall to wall. The cost of adding cleaning is more economical than stretching alone, and it completes the service. Now, you have impeccably taut, tightly stretched carpet that has also been steam cleaned. Well done!

You can look at the loose carpet in your house or apartment and say to yourself “this carpet looks old and needs to be replaced” Oftentimes after the old or even new wavy carpet is power stretched and possibly cleaned (did you know that we clean carpet too?) you would be surprised at how well it really can look. Carpet that is properly stretched, vacuumed, cleaned and fiber protected will upkeep incredibly well. The average lifespan of good carpet that is well maintained is 20 years.

Masterful Stretching: The Art of Achieving Perfect Carpet Tautness

Good Stretching is an Art Form

Masterful stretching requires the use of proper tools, equipment, and techniques, all while adhering to industry standards. Achieving perfect tautness, which eliminates bumps, lumps, ripples, and waves, necessitates a room free from obstructions such as furniture and beds. Carpet repair, in general, is an art form that demands technique and skill. Restretching carpet can be particularly challenging due to the carpet’s pre-cut size when being installed. Consistent outcomes from restretching can be achieved by following specific procedures and systems. Masterful carpet stretching cannot be accomplished solely with a kicker or a power stretching head; it requires additional tools and techniques. Obstructions in the room, like furniture, also hinder the attainment of perfect tautness. Contrary to common misconceptions, stretching carpet with furniture in the room is not feasible. At best, loose carpet can be improved with a kicker or power head if the ripple, wave, or crease is strategically located. This underscores our proactive approach to quality control, where we meticulously measure the outcomes of our repairs.

Carpet repair in general is an art form with technique. Carpet repair is not like auto repair in the sense that in automotive repair the part always fits in the same place and screws in the same. The outcome will always be the same regardless of who does it. Carpet repair is the exact opposite. The outcomes from each technician will vary in quality and outcomes. This is why we are proactive in quality control and measure the outcome of our repairs.

Interested in Learning How To Stretch Carpet?

Carpet stretching is a very labor intensive process and needs an empty field to work(empty rooms). We start by pulling all the carpet off the tack strip then we use a power stretcher to properly stretch the carpet towards the wall. Once the carpet is stretched evenly and to its proper tautness we re-fasten the carpet to the tack strip guaranteeing a strongly held carpet to the tack strip.
