Benefits of Carpet Repair

  • Modern carpets are fairly durable but after some time you can start to see them lose their colour and texture; carpet fibres might not stand up straight any more and you tend to see matted-down patches. Our carpet re-padding service provides a full or partial replacement of underlay in order to prolong the life of an existing carpet, giving it bounce, and also helps maintain its look and durability.
  • New underlay provides greater insulation than old underlay and will keep heat in your home for longer.
  • Stairs and landings are usually the areas where carpet is most frequently replaced. As the first noticeable signs of wear and tear show on a stairs carpet it is worth considering having the carpet shifted on the steps. Repositioning the carpet will extend the life of the carpet and ensure that you are getting the most from your original purchase.
  • Areas of carpet with stains, burns or blemishes can be patched to improve their appearance.
  • Seams that have split can be rejoined..Carpets can sometimes buckle or bubble and have a lumpy appearance.Re-stretching the carpet will make your carpet look like new.

  • Thresholds where carpet has worn away or come out of its fittings can be fixed and refitted; any grippers, door bars, naplocks or accessories replaced.
  • Don’t let your landlord keep your security deposit for worn or damaged carpet. They will frequently keep all the deposit in order to replace the carpets. Have the carpets repaired and keep your deposit.

 

Tips for handling Water Damage:

Pull back and raise the wet or damp carpet in order to leave the affected area dry thoroughly. A heater or dehumidifier is helpful. If the whole carpet is wet, take it up in its entirety and leave to dry; in the sun if possible. It is important to get the backing of the carpet dry. If you need to temporarily store the carpet before re-laying it, make sure it is either rolled up or kept flat; folding the carpet makes it much harder to refit due to creasing.
