Carpet & Flooring: Your Complete Guide!

Carpet Repairs

Carpet repairs from an industry insider and expert. I am now retired but I installed carpet, repaired carpet and cleaned carpet for years so I learned first hand what works and what does not. This page is about repairing your existing wall to wall carpet. What can be repaired and what cannot and how to find a qualified carpet repair technician who won't try to rip you off. I will also help you determine when it is time to replace your carpet and where to shop to get the best deal.- Mike

Carpet repairs may extend the life of your carpet. Quality carpet correctly installed should last for years but unfortunately, most carpets are abused and not maintained properly or improperly installed in the first place. The best places to call for Carpet Repairs in Los Angeles:

According to Shaw Industries (the worlds largest carpet manufacturer), the average carpet is replaced every 7 years. Most people are shocked to hear that. Many time it is because people want to change the look and not because the carpet wore out. The lowest quality carpet will be fully intact at the olandfill for over 1000 years (not an exaggeration) so it's not how long the carpet will last but how long your carpet will retain it's like-new appearance.

Hear are some common carpet problems which if not corrected by a qualified technician can lead to your carpet literally falling apart prematurely. If your carpet is wavy, loose or has bumps, your carpet may need to be re-stretched. Improperly installed padding or padding failure can also cause these symptoms.
 
Carpet Re-Stretching- The technician moves necessary furniture and uses a piece of equipment called a "Power Stretcher" to power stretch the carpet tight again. This requires great skill compared to installing new carpet because the carpet has already been trimmed. It therefore makes sense that care needs to be taken to plan and execute a re-stretch to minimize complications  such as stretching away from door jams. Some carpet needs to be stretched a couple inches to several inches and more if the room is large.
 
 
Some complications can arise if the carpet is old, the backing is brittle or made of jute or was subject to flooding, It may not be possible to re-stretch carpet in those situations without shredding or tearing the carpet. Sometimes you cannot determine which carpet is subject to these risks until you try. Prices vary from region to region but ultimately depend on the quality of carpet.
 
Generally speaking the prices will range from 28 cents per square foot to 85 cents per square foot depending on the type and quality of carpet, the layout of the area and how complex. For example, one square room not connected by a hallway covered in carpet is much easier than re-stretching carpet of a a whole house with a hallway and multiple rooms branching off of a room. Keep in mind that the technician will charge for the whole room and will always have a minimum. Minimums can vary from $100 TO $250
