Carpet and Rug Repairs
With all of the traffic that carpeting gets, it’s not surprising that it occasionally gets damaged. But, many homeowners are unaware that there is a middle ground between replacing your entire carpet and rearranging your furniture to hide the damaged spots. Oliva Service can repair the damage that your carpeting has incurred.
Some common professional carpet repairs include:
Burned, stained or otherwise damaged carpeting
Solution: “Cut and plug” is used to repair small areas of carpet that are burned, stained or similarly damaged. The damaged piece of carpet is cut out and a good piece of matching carpet is hot-glued into its place. If leftover matching carpet isn’t available, a small piece is usually taken from a closet or similar hidden location.
Loose or wrinkled areas of carpeting
Solution: Restretching is used for loose and wrinkled carpets. Like a facelift, restretching makes carpeting tight again. This also prolongs the carpet’s life by eliminating wrinkles which can cause the carpet to wear more quickly from the constant back and forth bending that occurs when they are stepped on. It also reduces the danger of tripping on the loose material.
Undone, open carpeting seam
Solution: Seam repair is needed when an existing seam has come undone. Often a strip containing the seam is cut out and hot glued back into place. Or we can open the entire seam, cut edges, re stretch, and glue it back.
