Advantages for carpet repairing

Advantages for carpet repairing

As you carpet ages, you might notice a seam that is rather noticeable. You may also have small burn marks or stains in the carpeting that will not come out no matter how hard you have tried. There could even be certain areas of the carpet where it starting to buckle or the edges have become noticeable and appear to be fraying.

Your initial response to any of the above issues might be to just replace the entire carpeting with brand new. However, depending on the extent of the problems and their locations, there can be several benefits to exploring your option using carpet repair and stretching services, first.

1. Costs Less – The most obvious benefit is for minor staining, burn marks, holes, noticeable seams, and buckling, having these problems repaired or the carpet re-stretched cost significantly less than replacing the entire piece of carpeting.
2. Extends the life of the existing carpeting – Addressing issues as they occur will extend the life of the carpeting and translate to fewer replacements. For instance, if the carpet is buckling and you notice wrinkles in main walkways, and do nothing, not only are tripping risks increased, but also the likelihood of creating rips and holes in the carpeting when it is vacuumed. By getting the carpet re-stretched, you avoid these other related problems and ensure to get the maximum life out of the carpeting.
3. Professional patching makes repairs hard to notice – Most people have scraps of carpeting left over for easy colour matching, and if not, professional patching companies keep a stock of a wide variety of colours and brands for repairs. After your carpet has been professionally patched, no one will be able to tell you had it repaired.
4. Professional repairs last for years – The repairs you have made to your carpeting by a professional provide for years of enjoyment. Depending on the age of your existing carpeting, repairs could last just as long as, and sometimes even longer than the remaining life left in the original carpeting.

Why you should avoid diy carpet repairs

There are several DIY carpet repair products on the market that say they can provide a professional finishing without the use of an experienced carpet repair service. However, what many people do not realize is carpet repair is a detailed and complex process. The direction of the carpet fibres, stitching, and seams all must be matched and repaired correctly.

Most of these products fail to mention this and only provide a short-term solution. Furthermore, most people, who have attempted to use a DIY solution, end up causing more damage to their carpeting. In the end, they end up having to call a professional anyway and end up paying more to get the carpet fixed, than if they had called a professional initially.

For professional carpet repairs and stretching services for your home or business, please feel free to contact Carpet Addicts at 066 261 8648 today! We offer a variety of services to help you maintain the look and appearance of your carpeting.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Carpet repair is a must when seams open up or certain chemical stains refuse to get out of your carpet. Carpet Addicts makes carpet blemishes, ripples and open seams disappear! And like magic, your carpet will look brand new again.

Buying a brand new carpet will only add unnecessary cost to your life, especially when the carpet you have still has some life left. So before you decide to go through the trouble of and dropping money on a replacement carpet, consider whether the carpet you have is simply in need of some TLC from Carpet Addicts. Here are some frequently asked questions about carpet repair:

How did my carpet form ripples?
Over time, an old carpet in your home can elongate and lose its attachment to the floor, creating ripples or flapping ends. If either you recently had a flood, your carpet regularly traps moisture, or you had an improper steam cleaning, then chances are your carpet will start “buckling,” or detaching itself from the floor. If you recently had a flood, wet carpet can become a breeding ground for unwanted mold and mildew. At Carpet Addicts, we’ll remove the extra water underneath your carpet with high-powered driers that will save your carpet from any flood damage.

How soon should I stretch my carpet?
Don’t wait! If your carpet has unsightly bubbles, ripples, or bumps, it can be a dangerous tripping hazard for your family, pets, and guests.  And while DIY enthusiasts might see this as a weekend task, the pros at Carpet Addicts have the tools that ensure a high level of quality in a short amount of time. We know how to delicately handle your carpet and stretch it back to its normal shape, until it’s running flush and flat on the floor like new.

Should my furniture be moved before carpet stretching?
Sometimes moving your furniture can make the ripples and waves in a carpet worse. The professionals at Carpet Addicts will take care of moving your furniture if it’s necessary.

Can I repair a seam on my own?
You don’t want loose edges or corners of your carpet to be exposed for the next person to catch a foot and trip over. Our pros guarantee that your carpet’s loose or frayed ends will be tucked in and sewn up along the edges for a safe, smooth and clean look.

When is the best time to repair and or re-stretch the carpet?
Don’t wait until the day you need to sell your home to re-stretch or repair your carpet. Instead, call Carpet Addicts to schedule an appointment with our professionals who will make your carpet look brand new.

How much does it cost to repair a carpet?
That would depend upon the type and size of damage and distance involved , most repairs though cost a fraction of what a replacement carpet would, please contact us for a free no obligation quote .

Does carpet repair have a value on resale of my home?
Anytime that you have a house that is neat and tidy and it looks like the people have been taking care of the place and not letting this and that go, it is better for resale. Buyers who come to buy will have a better view of the people who live there and the idea that the house won’t need a lot of major or minor repairs. If it looks like even small stuff like carpet needs repair here and there, they will begin to wonder about the major repairs also. It won’t matter even if you have taken care of the major stuff. It’s the perception which makes them feel comfortable that they are getting a good deal.

Will the repair show?
This depends on how worn or old the carpet is, depends on how big the patch is. We do a great job of fitting it, but we can’t do anything about the color.

What if I don’t have extra carpet?
Carpet can be taken from a closet in the house and you can get a different carpet to replace the closet carpet with. Sometimes if the repair is small, the carpet can be taken from a front corner in the closet where it won’t even be noticed. We can also buy a carpet piece from our suppliers

How much does it cost?
The cost to re-stretch your carpet depends on the size of the room and the difficulty of re-stretch. Repair costs can vary depending on how many there are, the size, the difficulty, the type of carpet, etc.

For re-stretches, do I have to move the furniture out?
For the best possible outcome, the room needs to be empty. It will save time and money. When anyone puts a new carpet in, it needs to be stretched both ways and the same with re-stretching. This can only be done with the furniture out of the room. Our team are pretty creative though! So if some of the furniture needs to stay in, we can do our best to work around it!

Does my furniture need to be moved?
The best stretch is accomplished when rooms are cleared of furniture. With this being said, it is not always necessary or possible to move all furniture. Oftentimes, shifting the furniture in the room is all that is required to do the repairs. We make use of furniture sliders in order to do this in the easiest and most efficient manner possible.  With that being said if we can have any smaller items, valuable or breakables removed from the area that is greatly appreciated.

Should I get my carpet cleaned before or after I get the carpet restretched?
We strongly recommend getting your carpets cleaned after.  Oftentimes the dirt will collect on the ripples. When the ripples are stretched out, there may be a darker shadow from where that dirt has collected.   As well depending on the type of carpet, the carpet may have stress marks from sitting in a rippled state for so long. Vaccumming may return the carpet to its pre-rippled state, but a good steam cleaning will solve both of these issues.

Why in your pictures does there still appear to be some wrinkling?
The reason for this is not because the carpet still has wrinkles, but because the carpet needs to be steam cleaned.  It is usually always a good idea to get your carpets professionally steam cleaned after we do a re-stretch.  Oftentimes the dirt will collect on the ripples. When the ripples are stretched out, there may be a darker shadow from where that dirt has collected.   As well depending on the type of carpet, the carpet may have stress marks from sitting in a rippled state for so long. Vaccumming may return the carpet to its pre-rippled state, but a good steam cleaning will solve both of these issues.

If seams need to be re-done, will they be invisible?
The CRI 105-2002 Standard for Residential Carpet Installation guide states: “Visibility of the seams will vary with the type of carpet purchased. Customers should not be led to believe that seams will be invisible.”

What if my carpet is delaminated?
Sometimes, after carpet that has been rippled for too long, the backing seperates from the top layer of carpet. In these instances the carpet may be able to be repaired, but in some extreme circumstance, it may not be possible to get the carpet stretched properly.

How do you fix a hole in the carpet?
There are reasons why you keep extra pieces of your carpet somewhere in your home. It’s for repairing holes and other types of damage. You call them patches, but in the carpet repair industry a “patch” is called a “permanent section.” We skillfully remove the damaged part of your carpet and replace it with a permanent section, so it looks as if it’s been there all along. Tip: Don’t store carpet remnants in your attic or garage. The heat quickly ruins the carpet, making it unsuitable for repairs.

How long has Carpet Addicts been in business?
We have been repairing and cleaning carpets in Johannesburg and Pretoria for more than 10 years now. Our carpet cleaning technicians are some of the most experienced in Johannesburg and Pretoria and have the know-how required to remove even the toughest of stains from even the most delicate carpets.

Will I have a chance to ask any final questions when the carpet cleaning technician comes to my location?
Our experienced and friendly technicians will always ensure all your questions are answered before they begin any carpet cleaning work during the pre-inspection. They always take extra time to make sure each client knows the final price and that all questions are answered.

My carpet is 30 years old can you make it look new again?
We cannot make your 30 year old carpet look brand new as it most likely has irreversible damage due to wear and tear from human traffic, pets and furniture as well as sun damage. However, our professional carpet cleaning service will definitely make a big difference to your old carpet by removing most of the dirt, grime, stains, odours and allergens while making you carpet look and feel cleaner, brighter, fluffier and healthier.

Can you get rid of cigarette burns and other burn stains from my damaged carpet?
Yes we can, this is called blocking. Our experienced carpet repair specialist will come in, cut out the damaged piece of carpet and replace it with a piece of carpet that looks almost identical to your carpet, making it look seamless.

Do you offer carpet water damage services?
Yes, we offer carpet water damage treatments in Johannesburg and Pretoria.

My carpet fibres have become flat, can you restore volume to my carpet?
Very often our experienced technicians are able to restore some volume loss in situations when carpet fibers are flattened due to overuse. However, for very old carpets it is not possible to improve volume loss, in which case we may recommend replacing your carpet.

My carpet has faded due to sunlight, can you fix carpet sun damage?
Our professional carpet cleaning services will minimize the visibility due to sun damage, however it is not possible to remove sun damage completely and so expectations should be realistic.

Do you have to come and visit me in order for me to get a quote from you for repairs?
Not always – We can do an accurate Quote from a photo (please put a pen or ruler into photo for scale) This is a very cost effective way to save your precious time and get a quick Whatsapp quote.
