Good quality carpets can last up to ten years under average use but most carpets need a good carpet re-stretching and tucking at some point within that period. However, carpeting may show wear problems as the years go by. Stretching may cause areas of the carpet to loosen, leaving unsightly bumps, ridges or ripples. These problems do not require complete replacement of the carpeting. Carpet re-stretching and carpet tucking can be done by an experienced carpet repair company, such as L&P Flooring.
Looseness of your wall-to-wall carpeting may appear as ridges along the entire length of the room, a series of ripples in certain areas of the room or a large bunch of carpet fabric near heavy furniture. These problems may appear in only one area of the room or may be more widespread.
