Carpet seems to be an understated luxury in the home. It's only when you don’t have it in your home anymore that you figure out it was wonderful beneath your feet when it was cold outside. Or that it was the one surface you could tolerate standing on when your feet and knees were killing you. Let’s not forget to mention the fact that it made the home look beautiful and inviting when you first walk into it. Overtime though, your carpet may not look as amazing as it did when you first installed it. When you have had it in your home for a number of years, you will have to decide whether you can get it spiffed up with a good cleaning and some repairs or if it's time to have it replaced. Nip Tuck Carpet Repair has seen a number of different carpets ranging many years. There have been times when we acknowledge that carpet is too old for us to work on and it’s best that it just be replaced. Here are some signs that will help you to decide whether or not you should replace or repair your carpet.
Does Your Carpet Stink?
When it comes to your carpet you want to make sure that it isn’t contributing to any health probably you may be experiencing. If your carpet is smelling, then there is something serious going on with it. There are a couple of different reasons why this may be happening. It may be due to the fact your fluffy pet is peeing on it. If this is the case, then you can easily have that repaired. We are able to cut out the piece of carpet, remove the pad, treat the subfloor, put new padding down and put a patch piece of carpet in.
If you have recently had any flooding and you haven’t pulled up your carpet and padding to let it dry out, then you may possibly have some mold growing underneath it. If you think that you have mold growing in your carpet, then new carpet is definitely something that you want to look into.
The Condition of Your Padding
Your carpet is as only as good as your carpet padding. Some say that you should have it replaced every 5 years. Of course, there are a lot of different variables when deciding this. It can be hard to tell without pulling your carpet back. You can typically feel how good your carpet padding is doing by walking on it. Notice if there are high and low spots. If there are and your carpet is still in good shape, then you can have just the padding replaced and your carpet re-stretched back over it. Here at Nip Tuck Carpet Repair we are able to do just that.
Have your allergies started to act up in recent years without let up and you’re not sure why? Well your carpet may be the culprit. Older carpet is great at catching and retaining allergens as well as other particulate matter. This can cause your allergies to act up. You may be able to fix this with a simple professional cleaning but if that doesn’t work then it is possible that you’ll have to take it a step further and have your carpet and pad replaced.
There are a number of things that Nip Tuck Carpet Repair can help with. Whether you need your carpet stretched, patched or repaired, we are the ones to call. Our work comes with a 5-year warranty. This way you don’t have to worry about whether you’re getting a quality job or not because we show that we stand behind the work that we do! Call us today if your carpet just needs a bit of repairing. It can make your carpet last many more years to come!
