Want your carpet to last a long time? Take really good care of it. Professional cleaning will extend the life of your carpet, and carpet re-stretching is a viable alternative to costly replacement.
Atlanta professionals offer the following collection of tips to make sure that you get the most out of your carpet re-stretching services.
Tip #1 – Move Furniture Carefully
When you need to move furniture around, use moving pads so that heavy pieces won’t cause the carpet to bunch up. If there are pieces that can be lifted, use lifting bands. Carpets that have been re-stretched may be adhered firmly to the floor, but furniture or appliances that are heavy can snag them as they are being pushed around. The carpet will shift and air pockets (which are tripping hazards) will form between the carpet and floor.
Tip # 2 – Keep Carpets Dry
Always dry spills (water, wine, etc.) immediately. Standing water can weaken the carpet’s adhesive, causing air pockets to form. The problem with air pockets is that they get bigger over time, and before you know it, your properly stretched carpet is moving around and bunching in different places. When that’s the case, you’re going to have to call in the pros again to re-stretch the thing. Drying is easy; use a dry chamois and vacuum if necessary to make removing moisture even faster.
Tip # 3 – Watch the Wood Doors
Stay on the lookout for wood doors – they expand when weather changes. When doors expand, they don’t move smoothly over carpets, and when you force them open when they feel tight, uh-oh! Bunching can happen, along with other types of damage on the carpet.
Tip # 4 – Keep It Clean
Pick up debris immediately and vacuum your carpet at least weekly. These consistent efforts prevent wear and tear.
Tip # 5 – Hire The Best
It’s imperative to hire the best in the industry for your carpet re-stretching. This may be the most important because the best providers will deliver such high quality work that you can expect the carpet to last a really long time. Seek out the most highly recommended carpet re-stretching providers. You certainly get what you pay for.
Carpet Re-Stretching Reviews
Feedback from a few of our customers.
Honest and Reliable – Carpet Stretching
After a recent floor repair, I needed the carpet in my sunroom relayed & stretched back in place. Chris provided a reasonable quote over the phone based on the square footage of the room. He arrived on time as promised and completed the work quickly and professionally. 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. Link to the original review.
First-Rate in Every Way (Carpet Stretching Review)
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.

Investment Property … 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.
