If you have carpet in your home, you might think that the only thing you need to do to it is vacuum it and occasionally clean it. Well, if you want to get the most life out of your carpet then here is another suggestion that is equally important. In addition to having your carpet cleaned on a regular basis by a professional, you should put carpet restretching on the list at the first sign of ripples appearing, or at least every 3 years. Why is this so important? Keeping the carpet tight wall to wall is the life of the carpet. Loose carpet will wear faster and the backing can become damaged over time to the point that premature replacement may be required, costing you money that could have been saved if proper care was maintained. So have your carpets tightened or restretched on a regular basis.When it comes to any kind of carpet repair such as restretching, we have a list of reputable carpet repair and restretching professionals who have the proper equipment and training to make sure it is done correctly. This is very important because there have been problems with not so professional companies who show up with only what's called a "kicker", and that tool does not have the ability to properly perform carpet restretching. If it's just a small area of a room, then that may suffice, but for full room stretching, a power stretcher is really the industry standard used by flooring pro's. And have your carpet cleaned regularly by a qualified carpet cleaning company like KleenSmart Carpet Cleaning in Huntington Beach Ca. 92649. Rental machines, or do it yourself equipment, if not used properly can leave the carpet too wet, causing backing damage that cannot be stretched out. And, if you try to stretch it out most likely it will tear because the backing has been compromised by too much water in the cleaning process.Many do it yourself homeowners who clean their carpet regularly start seeing ripples appearing prematurely. This again could be caused by oversaturation of the carpet with these machines. Many of them have very poor suction and extraction so the slow drying time can and does cause the backing to come loose and thats where the rippling comes into play. We recommend using these machines sparingly, perhaps as just a quick maintainance procedure, or for an unexpected spill. Professional cleaning produces much better results in the long run, and when cleaned regularly, will help your carpet to last much longer.
