Key to Saving Money on Carpet Restretching or Installation in Atlanta

Restretching an Atlanta Carpet using professional tools.

Do you groan when you think of restretching or replacing your carpet? Carpet installation, stretching or repair does not have to cost an arm and a leg. At the same time, a low price job can end up costing you much more in the long run when you have to pay someone else to redo it.

You don’t have to sacrifice quality to get a reasonably priced carpet installation or restretching. The key is knowing the right questions to ask your contractor.

An Informed Consumer Gets the Best Deal

It’s always best to know what you’re getting with the service you’re acquiring. Whether you’re installing a new carpet or getting carpet restretched, Atlanta contractors should inform you of their process. When you know how the job is done, you could save money in the long run.

Ask the Right Questions and Save Money

When considering carpet contractors, take the time to ask the following questions:

What kind of training have you gone through and are you certified?

The IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification) has set guidelines for carpet installation as well as repair (which includes restretching). Your carpet contractor should follow the BSR IICRC S600, the carpet installation standard, and have trained personnel. The IICRC also provides a basic skills program and continuing education for the trade.

Who will perform the installation job?

The contractor should do the installation—not the subcontractor hired to support the job. This will give you more confidence in the quality of the work since the contractor is likely to have more experience and expertise; also, you’ve hired the contractor to install or restretch so it’s reasonable to expect him (or her) to do the job.

What tools will you be using?

Whether it’s on a larger floor or a smaller room, every carpet installation or restretching requires specific tools. The tools and techniques used by the contractor will reveal their expertise. Most jobs will need the slotted blade knife, power stretcher, awl and hammer and specialized cutters. Each tool helps certified carpet technicians to perform precise tasks that ensure quality work—from installation to restretching.

What is your warranty?

How long is the warranty and what will it cover? The longer the warranty, the better. Longer warranties indicate commitment to high quality jobs, while more coverage will save you money on future repairs.

How will you prepare for the installation?

Avoid contractors who simply place carpets without preparing the floors.

Exactly what is included in this quote?

Whether you are getting your carpet installed or restretched, get a written quote. The quote should outline all of the services you will receive. The list of inclusions will let you know if you need to pay extra for certain services.

Carpet Repair Tip – Top 3 Areas Prone to Wear and Tear

Cleaning Carpeted Stairs - Upscale Atlanta Home

Why do families choose carpeted flooring? Carpet is the perfect solution to ugly flooring because it easily conceals dings, dents and other flaws. Carpets add cushioning to the floor, making it safer for wobbly toddlers that fall and bump into everything. With a wide variety of designs and textures, carpet makes it possible to change the look and feel of a room.

While a lot of carpets are made to last for years, the problem is they don’t wear evenly. Some areas or spots get damaged more easily than others, hence the need for carpet repair.

Here are the carpeted areas of the house are most prone to ugly wear and tear.

1 – Doorways

This is a no-brainer. Because of the frequent opening and closing of doors, the carpet under doorways will wear out faster than the rest of the room.

Wood doors expand and shrink depending on the weather. Therefore, even doors that used to move easily over the carpet could proceed to rub heavily against the fibers.

2 – Steps

The amount of foot traffic wears down the carpet material, which is pretty understandable, as even hard surfaces tend to exhibit the same types of damage. The height of fibers on areas people normally walk on will be different from those on the sides, which people tend to avoid.

3 – Heavy Furniture or Appliances

Any spot where there’s heavy furniture or appliances is prone to show wear and tear before other areas. You can expect spots under cabinets or armoires, tables, and couches to have dents or even discoloration.

How to Repair or Prevent Damaged Carpet

Fortunately, damaged carpets are not lost causes because there are professionals who can clean, repair and/or stretch them so they look new again.

Regular, professional cleaning will extend the life of your carpet.  You can expect to have to re-stretch areas of properly installed and maintained carpet every five years.  Damaged areas should be repaired as soon as possible.

Carpet re-stretching and repair costs a small fraction of what it takes to have new carpets installed. On top of this, it’s a job that can be completed much faster than installation.

Prevent Unnecessary Carpet Repair – Atlanta Pros Cite Factors That Can Damage Carpets

atlanta carpet repair factors

Before purchasing carpet for your home or office, it is a prudent idea to know exactly how to clean and maintain it. This knowledge will allow you to prolong the life of your carpet and get a good return on your investment.

Apart from regular cleaning and maintenance from expert carpet cleaners, it is equally important to know the things that can damage your carpet.

Atlanta carpet professionals list a few of the things that can damage carpets as well as the steps that you can undertake to prevent this from happening.

Foot traffic

As people walk on carpeted areas on a daily basis, damage is inevitable. This is why it is advisable to ask your family and guests to avoid walking on your carpet if they are wearing high heels, dress shoes and even rubber-soled sneakers.

Dirt

Another factor that can damage carpets over time is dirt. As such, it is important to clean your carpet yourself weekly and have it periodically cleaned by professionals.

If at all possible, encourage everyone to leave their shoes at the door. This reduces the dirt and germs tracked in.

Chemical spills

Bleach, household cleaning products, even wine spills can permanently damage carpets. Some chemicals can immediately damage and discolor carpets, which is why it is important to avoid handling these near carpeted areas. Once damage has occurred, your best bet is to have the carpet repaired as soon as possible.

Furniture damage

Over time, furniture like desks and couches can damage the fibers and back-weaves of carpets. Once this happens, you can go to experts to have your carpet repaired or simply cover the damaged areas with other furniture.

Make sure your carpet cleaner moves the furniture and cleans under it. This will keep your carpet color uniform and prevent furniture indentations from becoming permanent.

Burns

Cigarettes and lighters can burn carpets. To prevent carpet damage, avoid smoking indoors. Whatever the reason for the carpet burn, if the damage is extensive, the only recourse is to have the damaged area cut off and patched. This job can be performed by a qualified carpet repair professional.

Carpet rippling

Carpet rippling can be caused by increased humidity or incorrect carpet installation. In some instances, the carpet will revert to normal when the humidity levels return to normal. Once the carpet has lost its elasticity, however, you will have to call the professionals to re-stretch your carpet.

Protecting your carpet

As the old adage goes, prevention is better than cure. Most carpet damage can be easily prevented.

Here are a few things that you can do.

  • Make sure your carpets are installed properly.
  • Avoid bringing food and drinks into carpeted areas.
  • Leave your shoes at the door.
  • If you are a smoker, avoid smoking indoors.
  • Finally, make sure that you set aside ample time and effort to clean and maintain your carpet.

In some cases, you may not need your carpet replaced at all. Here are a few customer testimonials.

WOW! Unbelievably great!!

He also took care of a large stain in the room. I am extremely impressed with the overall experience and attention to detail I received. This is definitely a company that I will use again and refer to others.

How Often Should You Do Carpet Re-stretching (Atlanta) and Why?

Carpet Repair Atlanta - BEFORE Restretching

Wrinkly Carpet -Before Our Professional Restretching Services

Carpets are wonderful features to have in your home. They offer a number of benefits:

  • Carpets add to the decor in a room (and help tie in the design elements within the space),
  • they make walking across the floors comfortable,
  • and they help muffle sounds from footfalls so that noise can be reduced within the home.

Once you have your carpet installed in your property, you may think that that’s all there is to it—that you won’t have to do anything to it anymore, except for the occasional cleaning. However, as time passes, you may notice things about your carpet that need to be addressed immediately.

The appearance of rolls, ripples or bunches

After years of foot traffic, your carpet will begin exhibiting signs of wear and tear. Carpets can become loose, especially if they spread out across several rooms.

The elasticity that you observed in a new carpet will no longer be there; instead, the carpet will begin showing bunches, rolls and ripples in certain areas. They may look harmless, but you’ll unfortunately discover soon enough that these waves can be quite unsightly, and they can also be pretty nasty tripping hazards.

Atlanta Carpet Repair - Stretching

Restretching our client’s carpet with a professional stretcher.

Finding a solution

If you notice your carpet beginning to loosen up and causing people to trip all over the place, you have to take action soon. Correcting the loose carpet will keep your family safe from accidents and will help restore the appearance of your space.

Re-stretching a carpet entails pulling the slack out of an old carpet so that it will lie flat against the floor once again. Any excess material after the re-stretching will be trimmed away, and the carpet will be tacked back into place.

Carpet re-stretching technicians will make use of specific tools to get the job done. A slotted blade knife is used to separate the flooring around the edges so they can be pulled. To separate the pile from the tack strip, an awl and hammer would be handy. A power stretcher, perhaps the most essential tool, does the heavy stretching (human hands won’t be able to pull as much as the equipment can); there is also a smaller version called the knee stretcher or kicker that can be used to finish the stretching job. And industrial staple guns are excellent for securing the flooring back down afterwards.

How often should re-stretching be done?

If your carpet was perfectly installed when you moved into the house, you won’t have to think about re-stretching it for another five years. That’s because a good carpet installation job would stay in place for three to five years, so getting experts to perform the re-stretching too early or often would only be a waste of effort and resources.

In some cases, you may not need your carpet replaced at all. Here are a few customer testimonials.

Professional in every way

 

Had Chris re-stretch a room which had improperly installed carpet. Everything from the first phone call to the finish job was first rate. He kept me informed as to his schedule, arrived exactly on time and provided good service at a good price. Will call him again if other carpet needs come up.

From Deep Cleaning to Carpet Restretching – Atlanta Homeowners Find Alternatives to Costly Carpet Replacement

Carpet restretching alternatives to carpet repari

Is your carpet looking the worse for wear? Does it sport distracting and potentially hazardous waves? Is it dotted with obvious stains? Does it indicate the undeniable presence of pets? A dirty, messed up carpet can certainly give a room a seedy look, so you may think that it’s about time that you replace your carpet. It’s not in the budget and it might leave you a little bit (or a lot) in debt, but what can you do? You can’t keep on co-existing with dingy flooring.

Thankfully, you may be able to revive your carpet to avoid the steep expense of a replacement. There are great alternatives that you can opt for instead. That’s why carpet care services exist out there. They do everything from stain removal to deodorization, to bonded inserts, to specialty spot dyeing, etc. For a fraction of the cost of replacement, you can have your carpet looking fantastic again.

The following are some of the solid options for homeowners may go for:

  1. Deep cleaning

    Professional carpet cleaning is a great and significantly cheaper alternative to replacing an old and shabby-looking carpet. This is nothing like the DIY cleaning process you can read about online. This involves intensive cleaning solutions that can eliminate even the most stubborn stains. Your carpet will look clean and feel clean. Deep cleaning will also eradicate mites, fleas, and other no-see-ums that may lurk within the pile. You’ll have a more hygienic room in the end.

  2. Carpet stretching

    This is the solution for carpets that are beginning to ripple or bunch up in some places, which may happen on account of normal wear, but most frequently due to the rearranging of heavy furniture or outright mistakes in installation or manufacturing. Do not ignore even a slight ripple as it will definitely get progressively worse if not repaired right away. For this, the type of repair necessary is carpet care services do this by pulling up the ends of the carpet, stretching the carpet until it’s taut, cutting out the excess, and putting the carpet back in place. It will then be secured to prevent future relaxation.

  3. Carpet repair

    There are different ways to repair a carpet, depending on the problem. With stains, rips, thinning, pet urine, and other issues that are concentrated in one area, carpet patching may be the solution. With the difference in cost, a carpet patch is a better choice than an entire replacement.

Don’t be too hasty in dismissing your carpet as a lost cause. With excellent carpet care service, you can enjoy many more years with it.

In some cases, you may not need your carpet replaced at all. Here are a few customer testimonials.

Extremely pleased

 

Timely, courteous, professional, hard-working, thorough, and efficient. I would recommend your company to anyone seeking carpet cleaning services. We also had to have some carpet wrinkles stretched out, and, while it was not cheap, it looks much better. The house will be listed soon, and this is one of the final touch-up’s that was left. The carpet looks almost new.

Great carpet restretching

 

Called Chris after another company did one room and over charged us. Chris did the upstairs, was very professional and the price was fair. He was very communicative and easy to schedule, came out on time, and did a great job. Was so happy with his service that now I’m about to call him for carpet cleaning.

Tile and Grout Restoration Success Story (Atlanta, GA)

Searching for A Big Canoe In The Woods

Looking Through Windshield from Car

Every workday should start off this way

Duty called and we were on our way through the North Georgia mountainous terrain recently in search of a big canoe in the woods… Big Canoe country club that is.

You see, I was talking to a good friend of mine, Marie with Maries Cleaning Service, about the 2015 launch of a few of our new service offerings. She was delighted to hear that we now offer tile and grout restoration along with color sealing and suggested I take a trip up there to determine if I could possibly provide an intermediate appearance solution for some for their fitness facilities until their scheduled renovation in 2016. I jumped at the opportunity.

Test And Test And Test….Then Test Yet Again

Fixing Grout on Tiles

We nailed it!

We showed up in Sherlock Holmes mode, and began surveying the area in question to determine the multitude of ingredients that wold comprise the surface “film” that had adhered to the tile surface. We then started testing various restorative cleaning agents, as well as, the best sequence of applications to generate optimal results.

Some time went by, and with a little elbow grease…we struck gold!
We found our secret sauce. I immediately retrieved our client who was blown away & asked that we send over a restoration quote posthaste.

Needless to say, I was more than happy to oblige.

Is it your turn?

Grout Color Sealing - Before and After

Carpet Repair – 3 Top Reasons Pet Owners Replace or Repair Carpet

We love our dogs and cats and consider them part of the family. They can wreak havoc on our carpets and other flooring, however.

Carpet repair atlanta pet problems

Many of my clients are pet owners, and here are the top 3 reasons they need to have their carpets repaired. In most cases, they start out thinking they need to replace the carpet and are relieved to find out they can save thousands of dollars by simply having their carpets professionally repaired.

Carpet Repair Reason #1 – Clawing

Whether it’s because their  pet is “young and frisky” or trying to get out of a locked room, my clients are amazed at how much damage can be done to a carpet in a short period of time. Clawing can quickly reduce carpet to shredded mess (especially if it is Berber carpet). Fortunately, a professional carpet repair expert with professional materials can often replace the shredded piece of carpet seamlessly.

Carpet Repair Reason # 2 – Pet “Accident” Stains

If a pet “accident” is not treated properly, stains become the least of the problems. Bio matter will leak through the carpet padding and get absorbed into the floor, often causing a lingering unpleasant odor. In order to repair the carpet, we have to cut through to the padding, thoroughly clean and treat the floor and wait for it to completely dry before replacing the padding and  carpet.

Carpet Repair Reason #3 – Using the Wrong Cleaning Solvent

Last, but certainly not least, is using the wrong cleaning solvents to clean pet stains. Some of the solvents may be simply to harsh for your carpet and might end up stripping off the color. The solution to this problem also involves repairing the carpet by replacing a section.

In some cases, you may not need your carpet replaced at all. Here are a few customer testimonials.

All Dog Stains Removed

 

Fresh Start was able to come to my house at a moments notice. I had a lot of dog stains and they are all removed and the carpet smells great. Chris was very professional and I will use him again for sure! Thank you.

Provided Service Unique to My Carpets

 

After reading all the reviews about “Chris” and Fresh Start I was hoping to receive the same great experience that the reviews gushed about. I did have that same treatment from start to finish. They took their time and asked the right questions and provided me with the service that was unique to my carpets which were badly stained from pets. So far, all the stains are gone and my carpets look great for 10 year old carpet! Thanks Fresh Start for buying me a little more time before replacing my carpet!

Saved Client $5,000 In Carpet Replacement Costs (Carpet Repair Review)

Thanks to Chris and Fresh Start I saved over $5,000 this was the quote to replace the carpet. I just brought a new home and the carpet was pretty bad. i called a carpet company which came out and gave me a quote for $5,000 which was the cheaper carpet. I then went kudzu and found Chris who came out on Mother’s Day and inspected the carpet and advised me that i would not have to replace he could get it clean. He was very thorough in explaining the process and the price was fair even after i shared the quote from the carpet retailer. Chris came out a couple days later and did a fantastic job!. I highly recommend Fresh Start. He has a customer for life. Link to original carpet repair review.

 

Unbeatable – really! (Saved Client $4,000 In Carpet Replacement Costs)

I love Kudzu for this very reason: I chose Fresh Start based solely on the Kudzu reviews. We have a very large dog living indoors who tracks in a lot of dirt on our light carpets. We were certain the carpets were ruined and were preparing to spend $4k to replace them. I’m not joking when I say that Chris knew exactly what to do, because of his expertise, to make them look like NEW! We are thrilled. Don’t hesitate – don’t bother reading more reviews. Call Chris -Fresh Start. Extremely professional, customer-oriented and experienced. Link to original review.

Well Worth the Money

Tried Fresh Start this week for carpets our renters left in horrible condition. I thought I would have to replace them, they were so nasty and filthy. What I like about Chris is that he always return calls, quickly. He arrived within the time frame stated, and the prices was what was quotes. Chris was upfront regarding the horrible condition of the carpet, but said he would do his best. He did an excellent job. He got out probably 95% of the dirt and grime. He also stated if the dirt resurfaces he will touch the areas up for free. Fresh Start was well worth the money. Thanks Chris! Link to the original review.

Carpet Looked Awesome … Smelled Much Better (Atlanta Carpet Stretching Review)

I am placing my house up for rent and needed the carpets cleaned and stretched and generally made to look almost like new for potential renters. I called around to a few places on Angie’s List, but Chris is the only one that actually answered the phone. He was very friendly and listened to exactly what I needed. I had to reschedule with him the night before our original appointment, and he was very flexible and courteous. He showed up on time at the rescheduled appointment and completed the services in the estimated time frame. My carpet looked awesome when he was done and the whole place smelled so much better. He actually took extra time to remove the ground in dirt from my high traffic area by the back door.

How to Clean and Protect Your Upholstery

What’s better than sinking into your upholstered couch and putting your feet up after a hard day at work?

upholstery cleaning atlanta

 

Follow these tips to maintain your upholstery’s new, clean look for years to come.

  • Vacuum often to reduce grit that can cause abrasion.
  • Reverse loose cushions weekly for even wear.
  • Protect from the sun. Ultraviolet light can cause deterioration.
  • Keep your pets off upholstered furniture. Pet’s body oils rub off and are very difficult to remove.
  • Use caution with clothing such as Blue Jeans. Fabric dyes can transfer onto upholstered furniture.

 

Dealing with Upholstery Soils

caring for upholstered furtnitureLet’s face it; it’s just a matter of time before your upholstered furniture needs cleaning. While we highly recommend upholstery fabric protection, it does not provide a 100% barrier against dirt.

Most spills & soil on fabric protection treated upholstery will clean easily and quickly provided that the proper cleaning procedures are followed. The wrong cleaning methods can irreparably damage your fabric.

 

Follow the following steps when your upholstery becomes dirty.

  1. Blot (don’t rub) spills immediately with a clean absorbent cloth while spill is still fresh. Dried spills are more difficult to remove.
  2. Identify the cleaning code for your type of fabric. This is very important to determine the type of cleaner to use.
  3. Always read & follow the instructions on the cleaning agent.
  4. Use distilled water with the cleaning agent if water is called for (W & WS codes only).
  5. Pretest any cleaner on any fabric in a hidden area. Check for color fastness and fabric compatibility.
  6. Keep a small spill small. Work lightly, blotting from center to the edges. “Feather” the edges by dampening edges irregularly and blotting quickly to avoid rings.
  7. Quickly dry a cleaned spot using a small fan or blow dryer on low.

Don’t Leave your Upholstery Fabric Unprotected

 

After your fabric is cleaned, it will need to be protected. Fabric Protector keeps your fabric cleaner longer and helps repel permanent stains.  The protector will be sprayed evenly onto the fabric and brushed in. Your next cleaning will be more effective as the protector will “encapsulate” body oils and soils that accumulate on the fabric. When it is cleaned, more soil will be removed as a result of the treatment.

To prevent permanent damage, make sure your upholstery fabric protector is applied by a trained technician.
