Carpet is like a woollen jersey, it stretches and shrinks over its useful life. Whether this is because of moisture in the air, changing temperatures or dragging furniture around it ultimately results in your carpet losing the correct tension it was given during installation.
You’ll recognise carpet which has lost this tension from the ripples, bubbles or bumps in the carpet that look a bit like judder bars!
Aside from being a significant health & safety hazard, if the damage isn’t addressed quickly, the latex which holds the fibre of the carpet to the backing layers can wear out and the carpet will eventually delaminate, peak and split.
Eventually, this causes rips, exacerbates the existing tripping hazards and can render the carpet irreparable. Stretching is essential if you want to extend the life of your carpet.
Occasionally we come across clients who have recently had new carpet installed and within only a few years the carpet has already started to develop ripples or bubbles. The most common reason for this is because the layer has only used a knee kicker rather than a professional carpet power stretcher to give the carpet the tension it needs from day one.
At Carpet Repairs, we use late model, commercial power stretching equipment to apply the correct tension back onto the carpet and in some instances, we are able to re-apply latex glue to reverse the effects of delamination.
