Seam repairs & carpet re stretching

As your carpet ages, it often requires expert maintenance to keep it looking great, prevent trip and fall hazards and generally extend its life to achieve maximum return on your investment. Two major issues that can arise in carpets are seams breaking down, especially in high use/wear areas and carpets going slack.

Seams will somtimes break down with time and use. If they do and we're called before any extensive damage occurs, we can often take the seam up, remove the old seaming tape and clean up the edges by trimming them back and seam sealing them before re stretching the carpet to re join for a new seam.

Over time, a carpet installation may slacken and the room becomes loose or rucking can occur, which are ridges appearing and developing, particularly in higher use areas like hallways etc. The room usually needs emptying of most furniture and the carpet can often be successfully re stretched. These type of repairs require an onsite free inspection to assess job requirements and we will provide you with a free assessment and quote.

We also do re tufting or pulled threads, replacement of broken and damaged naplok bars and other minor repairs.

Bonded inserts, patches & grafts

When your carpet is damaged, with rips, tears, cuts, pot plant rot or bleach, and cleaning is not an option, a bonded insert can be a very cost effective way of restoring the finish of your carpet.

Both backings are cut so the complete section is removed and a new piece inserted. We seal the edges to prevent fraying, and then use the same seaming tape as used in carpet installation, ensuring the repair should last the life of the carpet. The amount of wear and fade on the carpet and the donor peice will dictate the level of invisibility achieved with a repair.

Sometimes in minor cases of damage, just the top face of the carpet is damaged, as in the case of a pulled thread along a join or similar. Most tufted carpets have two backings to give them dimensional stability and strength. We can remove the face yarn and top or primary backing and graft in a new top face from spare carpet.

If you do not have left over carpet, or mats, or they don't match, we can often take a small section out of a wardrobe or cupboard and fit a piece of replacement carpet in it's place and use that for the repair.
