Over the years, carpet can become stretched beyond its normal capacity and begin to ripple or buckle. If you continue to walk on buckled carpet it will wear out quickly as well as damage the carpet fibers in the process. Rippled or buckled carpet also has a much higher risk of being torn when moving furniture than stretched carpet.
Stretching – An Affordable Replacement Alternative
Instead of entirely replacing the carpet, which is costly and time consuming, consider stretching your carpet. Carpet stretching is not only more affordable than replacing your carpet, but can restore the old carpet to looking good as new. Re-stretching old carpet can give any room a face-lift as well as prevents the carpet from becoming any more damaged.
