Carpet Buckling & Re-Stretching

Not only are carpet wrinkles, ripples, and buckles not appealing to the eye, but they can also be tripping hazards, reduce the value of your home if you are trying to sell, and it can be more difficult to keep your carpet clean without making it worse.

But where do these unsightly buckles come from? There are many possible causes:

  • Improper carpet installation
  • High temperatures and humidity
  • High traffic
  • Pushing heavy furniture across the carpet

Here at Ayoub Carpet Service® we often recommend having your carpet re-stretched if it is less than 8 years old. If your carpet is over 8 years old, we would typically recommend replacement since most carpet has a lifespan of 8-10 years. Ultimately, our experts will provide recommendations based on the state of the carpet, your needs, and your budget.

Carpet Patching & Repairs

Do you have a stubborn carpet stain haunting you? Perhaps even a pulled row, seam tear, or fireplace burn? For physically damaged carpets, we recommend carpet patching or repairing.

Even the most experienced cleaning technician cannot reverse severe carpet damage. That's where our team in Northern Virginia, including Arlington and the surrounding Maryland and DC areas, steps in and takes special care of your investment. Using a piece of remnant carpet, our skilled technicians will carefully match pattern, weave, texture, and direction to create a beautiful, "seamless" finish.

Why it’s Important to Have Your Carpet Stretched

Having wall-to-wall carpet properly stretched is crucial when it begins to buckle due to several important reasons. Firstly, stretched carpet not only improves the aesthetic appeal of a room but also enhances its safety. When carpet buckles, it forms ripples, waves, or wrinkles, which can create tripping hazards. This poses a significant risk, especially in high-traffic areas where people are more likely to walk or move around. By having the carpet stretched, these buckles and wrinkles are eliminated, ensuring a smooth and flat surface that reduces the chances of accidents and injuries.

Secondly, stretching the carpet helps to maintain its longevity and durability. Buckling is often a result of the carpet becoming loose over time. When the carpet is not stretched, the loose areas are prone to wear and tear, as they are more susceptible to friction and movement. Over time, this can lead to irreversible damage, such as fraying, unraveling, or tearing of the carpet fibers. By promptly addressing the issue and having the carpet professionally stretched, the tension is restored, preventing further damage and prolonging the lifespan of the carpet.

In summary, having wall-to-wall carpet stretched when it begins to buckle is important for both safety and longevity. It eliminates tripping hazards by providing a smooth and flat surface, making the room safer for occupants. Additionally, proper stretching helps maintain the carpet's durability by preventing excessive wear and tear. By addressing buckling issues promptly, you can ensure that your carpet remains in good condition and continues to enhance the comfort and aesthetics of your space.
