[00:53] So we’d love to talk to you today to be able to get you get your carpets back into health or great maintenance. One of the things that we covered earlier was just poor installation. If somebody doesn’t install the carpet properly, um, is put enough of a stretch on it, then it will wrinkle right away. If you see it wrinkled within the first 12 months, the carpet was just installed properly and that installation may be that the improper part of it may be that the installer did not let the carpet and come up to temperature. They need to acclimate climatize it to the house that is going to need to climatize it to the house so that it is going to be as flexible as it needs to be at. It won’t be super stiff while you’re trying to stretch it. And then it relaxes later.
[01:34] Becomes bigger than the area that is supposed to be put into. Um, also, another reason is that somebody will not use a power structure. Even on restructuring a, we will use the power stretcher to try to stretch the carpet. Only time that we won’t use the power stretcher is if you need to try, if you’re doing cosmetic stretching. carpet stretching Tulsa So cosmetic stretching is a little different than structural stretching. I’m cosmetic stretching is for carpet that, you know, is really old. Um, it, it’s kind of falling apart. If you put a hard stretch on it, it probably would tear or rip the carpet, but it does have wrinkles in an area that caused a trip hazard or you’re trying to sell the carpet, the car or sorry, tried to sell the house and the carpets, look, they look okay, but they are definitely worn out. They’re probably going to need to be replaced, but you don’t, they don’t need to be replaced right now.
[02:18] If you get in there, you just do a cosmetic stretching something that will just keep the carpets, um, from being a trip hazard for the time being until someone makes a decision about what they’re going to do with the carpets later. And in that circumstance you would just use a nitpicker and use it lightly so that you don’t pull apart seems or put too much stress on the carpet because then if it gets, if you’re dealing with 20 and 30 year old carpet, um, it can’t hold, it’s not as an adolescent. It is doesn’t have the same type of backing control that the new carpet had and so it needs to be kind of a little more care. Another example is a small closet and maybe it’s only five by five or eight by six. You know that you can’t take up. You wouldn’t take a power structure into there, but any room that’s really 10 by 10 or more, every single one of those rooms needs to be power stretched.
[03:05] Instead of just a regular knee kick in and this is the reason, especially on new carpet. Why so many places will wrinkle in that first year because they did not use the power stretcher carpet stretching Tulsa is nr fiber and is one of the things that we’re very proud that we can offer along with our carpet cleaning and what this can help with is that you were able to get to services done at once and you can rely that the person that came out there to stretch your carpet isn’t going to just disappear on you and not fulfill the warranty that we give. We give a one year warranty and all of our stretches, but is wanting to come back to your house later to be able to clean the carpets and maintain the health of your carpet that way. One of the reasons we’re going to go over to the next reason of why your carpets could be stretched.
[03:49] Um, why do we need it over the life of your carpet as you’re starting to use them and find that you’re running into wrinkles in your walk past the different areas is that the carpet will grow over time. Let’s say it was installed properly. Uh, in the Tulsa area. In the Oklahoma area, we have real high humidity and the low humidity. We have hot weather, we have cold weather. We have really just almost all of the different types of, whether it’s one of my favorite reasons for being in the Tulsa area here in Oklahoma is that you can never get bored with the weather. Uh, you may have one day, just, it may be 90 degrees and sunny, and then the next day you may end up with it being 25 degrees and it’s snowing. And then the next day it’s 60 again and the sun has come out and melting all the snow away. carpet stretching Tulsa.
[04:31] So it’s just, it’s really a fun dichotomy of different types of weather patterns and changes. But the downside is that as we talked about in previous episodes, carpet is a large, massive glue. You’ve got all of the little carpet fibers stuck into a backing and each one of those fibers are stuck in to the backing with glue and that glue is susceptible to temperature changes and humidity change. You get something real hot and wet and it’s going to relax all fiber, all fabric is this way. Carpet stretching. Tulsa is in our fiber and we’d love for you to check out more of our information and connect with us. Um, and part of this particular series is that we’re wanting you to know why your carpets were stretched in the first place. And knowing the why helps you, it won’t change the fact your carpets are stretched, but it will help you the next time to make sure that you do a little bit more care.
[05:17] Some things are outside of our control, just like the weather here in Oklahoma and so the weather can be a larger Achilles heel to your carpet stretching, carpet, stretching Tulsa since 1998. I’ve seen this so many times around the five to seven year mark, so many of the stretches that we do, um, happen because you have a real hot summer and it’s very moist and then you have a cool dry winter and then you have a hot summer and then you have a rainy spring and then you have a hot summer and you have a cold winter and that cycle of being hot, dry, cold, hot, dry, cold, hot, dry, wet, moist, hot, dry, cold, wet cause of the carpet to stiffen up and then relax and stiffen up and relax and stiffen up and relax. Over time it slowly starts to get a hump in it because there’s just more carpet in the space than was originally installed because the carpet has relaxed from just the changes in the weather.
