Help for Pet Damaged Carpet

Help for Pet Damaged Carpet

For many, a house is not a home without a furry family member. But as anyone with cats or dogs can tell you, they can have some destructive bad habits. Like, urinating in the same spot, digging holes in carpet, or scratching carpeting on stairs. And while training and extra attention can help you break them of habits like these, what are you supposed to do with the damage that has already been done?

When pets damage carpet, it often looks like holes, tears, and stains that can be unsightly and potentially hazardous. Fortunately, carpet patching and stretching can be effective solutions to this problem.

Problems Patching Can Help With

Carpet patching involves cutting out the damaged portion of the carpet and replacing it with a new piece of carpet. This can be done by a professional carpet installer, who will carefully measure and cut the replacement piece to ensure a seamless and secure fit. The installer will also carefully match the color and texture of the replacement piece to the surrounding carpet, so the repair is nearly invisible. So for parts of carpet where your beloved pet has dug a hole, carpet patching can make it look like it never happened.

Carpet Stretching

Carpet stretching is another technique that can be used to fix carpet that has been damaged by pets. Over time, carpets can become loose and wrinkled, especially in areas where pets like to play or scratch. This can create tripping hazards and make the carpet look unsightly. A professional carpet installer can use a specialized tool called a power stretcher to stretch the carpet and remove any wrinkles or bumps. This will make the carpet look new and eliminate any tripping hazards. Wrinkles are more prone to develop where there is moisture. So, if your pet kept urinating in the same spot and caused wrinkling as a result, stretching can make your carpet as good as new.

It's important to note that while carpet patching and stretching can be effective solutions for pet damage, prevention is always the best strategy. To prevent pet damage to carpet, consider using rugs in areas where pets spend a lot of time, trimming your pet's nails regularly, and discouraging your pet from scratching or chewing on carpet.
