Reasons Why Carpet is Usually Stretched


 
Home Improvement,Fashion & Cosmetics,Current Affairs
Have you ever noticed how fast carpet wrinkles grow once they get started? It's because carpet is meant to be stretched tight. Very tight! Once a loose carpet begins to form a ripple it needs a carpet stretching.

If you don't want to surf the waves of your carpet then you need to stretch it. Such wrinkles or loose carpeting comes about over time, when various activities contribute to loosen the carpet from the moorings at the edges. When a carpet is first installed, it will be properly installed and secured at the edges with tacks to keep it in place. But with constant wear and tear, such as dragging heavy furniture across the carpet, vacuuming that pulls at the carpet constantly, it can loosen the carpet somewhat.

How would you know when you need to stretch your carpet

A simple test can be conducted. The simplest way is to try and pull at the centre of the carpet and if it is possible, to hold if for a couple of minutes before releasing it. Should it bounce back neatly and tightly in place, chances are, you do not need to call in professional aid for carpet stretching.

However, when the carpet does not return to its original elasticity and forms wrinkles instead, it is time for your carpet to be stretched. Another method is to monitor the condition of your carpet whenever you vacuum it. Should there be wrinkles forming whenever your are vacuuming, it is a sure sign that your carpet needs stretching.

For those who still think that they are up to the job of stretching the carpets themselves, there are some guidelines to follow to ensure that the procedure is as painless as possible. Do ensure that there are more than two people to render help. It would be best if someone in the group has a talent for carpentry as the tacks would need to be first removed and then replaced.

n order to remove the wrinkles from your carpet, all you would need to do is to perform a simple carpet stretching procedure and your carpet will be back to looking as new in no time. Of course, it is always best to engage professional help as there are technical issues involved: such as moving the heavy furniture away before the tacks can even be taken out.

The entire procedure is relatively painless and fuss free, usually taking less than an hour to complete, although the size of your room would have to be a consideration as well. Do remember that for the carpet to be stretched, it tends to require more than one sole person attempting to do all the manual work, so starting the job all by yourself is usually not advisable.

The cost for stretching a carpet would cost approximately $0.50 cents a square foot or more depending in the size and quality of your carpet. The general rule of thumb is that thicker carpets require far more strength and labor to be stretched and thus the cost will be proportionately higher. Should your carpet require trimming, the professional team will also handle it as well.
