Carpet stretching is a form of carpet repair that increases its longevity and improves its appearance. There are signs that reveal whether carpet stretching is needed or not, including: lumps and wrinkles typically caused by moving heavy furniture; a damaged base that’s become loose; and uplifted edges.
Most people might not know what carpet stretching is or how effective it can actually be. Instead, they go out and buy a new, costly carpet that isn’t always required. By stretching your older carpet at home, you can repair loose carpeting that pulled away from the tacking strips that anchor it to the sub-floor. This will enhance its appearance and safety.
