Sometimes, our customers find themselves in a bit of a conundrum when their carpet suffers damage due to pets, kids, moving furniture or other accidents. Should they call us to repair the carpet, or do they need to invest in a complete replacement?
The answer varies from situation to situation, but here are a few scenarios in which our carpet repair services might be in order.
Burnt Patches or Stubborn Stains
Burn marks or holes can severely impact a carpet’s otherwise flawless appearance. However, they are not always an indication that the carpet needs replacing. A professional carpet cutter can cut around the burnt area and replace the carpet with a piece from an unnoticeable area. This is ideal for carpets that don’t have intricate patterns and is often a welcome solution instead of costly carpet replacements.
For pet owners or homeowners with carpets that haven’t been cleaned for a long time, it’s not uncommon for a carpet to start giving off a smell. This can often be entirely eradicated by utilizing professional cleaning services. If professional cleaning fails to remove an odor altogether, it may be a sign of more severe damage such as mold or mildew. In these cases, discuss with your cleaning professional the best options regarding additional action or carpet replacement.
Carpeting isn’t designed to last forever. After 10 years, signs of wear and tear start to become visible. If you have cleaned a carpet several times and are not getting the desired results, it’s probably time to replace the carpet. Signs associated with old carpets include matting, fading, wrinkles, ripples, and lack of padding support.
Excessive Wear and Tear
Are you rearranging furniture or strategically placing rugs to hide worn patches on your carpet? Once carpet matting loses its form, it never regains aesthetic composure again. Sometimes, carpet professionals may be able to fix up a carpet to make it look a lot better. However, large worn patches, rips or tears are a signal that the carpet may be better off getting replaced.
