We are complete carpet for you to connect with us and we can answer more questions for you by giving us a call directly at eight, four, nine, four, seven, zero nine, three or on the web@completecarpetTulsa.com. Uh, one of the things that I think is important while thinking about, um, what it is that you need to do to try to sell your home or maybe you’re just using, um, areas that are needed to be looked more sightly to be able to be flatter. I’m obviously a wrinkled carpet, will break down faster because it’s moving at a quicker pace than the rest of the carpet around it. Um, but the, uh, one of the things that I think is important is keeping that carpet tightened flat throughout the life of the carpet will make a big, huge difference for what it is that you can accomplish or achieve a.
00:53 So what we can help you with throughout that process of getting that house sold or be able to get that place looking like I’m like it did originally. And when it was new I, one of the big thing, the reason that carpet gets stretched out farther. Carpet stretching Tulsa since 1998, we are complete carpet and one of the things that happens is that carpet is meant to be a little bit tight, a kind of like a trampoline and while it’s sitting there like a trampoline is holding into its place where it needs to be. Um, it is able to be able to stay nice and flat and tight. And the, I always tell people somewhat light getting a coat hanger, a coathanger can hang your jacket on it probably for, you know, a wire coat hanger company lasted 15, 20, 30 years before he start potentially wearing it out.
01:36 But I could take a brand spanking new coat hanger and bend one way and back the other way. Bend one way, but in the back the other way. And really just in a couple of seconds, a break, the coat hanger and half, because it’s not meant to meant to hold a shape, but it’s not meant to be moved up and down quite so much. And so the carpet is kind of the same way. The looser gets, the more it, it bends under each footstep that you make, the more that it gives. If you put two inches of padding underneath your carpet, your carpet, which fall apart almost right away. That’s why they only put seven sixteenths or half inch padding underneath or, or center padding to be able to keep the carpet stiffer. How you look at your commercial spaces. Carpet stretching Tulsa since 1998. Look at the commercial spaces and they are, um, they glue the carpet straight to the floor to hold that in place.
02:23 And so in that case, you’ve got thousands of people walking across the carpet for years upon years and the carpet stays generally, um, uh, in place and in shape because it doesn’t move at all. It’s glued straight to the Florida to remove all of that extra, a fatigued from moving up and down, so you want to keep your carpets and generally tight and taut. A part of that process that we do carpet stretching Tulsa is in our fiber. We go through and use the power stretcher or a knee kicker depending on the situation. You want to make sure that whoever does your stretching has it at a minimum. It does have a power structure to be able to power stretch the bigger areas. Sometimes you don’t want to power stretch older carpet or a small area a, let’s say a closet. You’re not able to get a power structure in there or the parish.
03:04 I was going to put too much force for such a small area, so you want to do it by nea, but you also need to have the knee kicker for the top four to go around the power structure. The power structure does the big heavy lifting. They’ll bring the carpet tight across the room, but it’s not going to. You don’t really want to use it to hit every single space. You want to pull that up in the middle and then you tighten it up. All those extra bits around the head of the power stretcher with a nigger. And so one of the big things that you start with and do is that you need to have a room typically cleared of furniture. If you can’t Carpet Stretching Tulsa since 1998. We’ve had over 20 years of experience to be able to serve the Tulsa community.
03:43 And we can in some instances stretch the carpet while there’s furniture in place because the furniture is somewhat like a dishes on a tablecloth. And a lot of people nowadays don’t use tablecloths anymore. But when you had tablecloths on every table, you know the dishes on top of that, they will call and you could take out either end, if there’s a wrinkle in the middle of the, uh, in the middle of the table cloth with all the dishes already set, you could grab one end and hold it and the other end and pull it, and you can make it tight underneath all those dishes because it can just slide underneath them to a degree. That’s the same thing we do with carpet stretching. If there’s furniture in place, a long as it’s not terribly heavy furniture. Sometimes furniture is pretty heavy and you have to kind of move it around a to alleviate those points of pressure that’s holding the carpet in place.
04:28 Uh, but it’s, you can get the most complete stretch if you just take, have a room before, as you’re buying a house and you’re starting to move in, it’s best to get in there and get it all flat again. Or if you’re selling a house, you moved all your stuff out, get in there and stretch it all out flat. This does help to increase the value of the home quite a bit and now it won’t add value to the home, but you do recover the value that’s already in your home because most people will come in and they’ll look around. They’ll see the carpets and they’ll say, you know what? This needs to be replaced because the carpet may look good, but it’s got wrinkled in it and it could. It could be one year old carpet that’s wrinkled and they just assume it needs to be replaced because it has wrinkles in it.
05:04 It was poorly installed or something happened during that time frame to quickly create wrinkles. The carpet’s got another 10 to 15, 20 years of life left in it, but it’s got a hump or a wrinkle somewhere and so people walk in, see the wrinkle and they just immediately say, oh, the carpet needs to be replaced. Carpet Stretching Tulsa and our fiber. And one of the things that we’ve seen over and over and over is that people will complain about a house come in immediately discount the offer that they’re going to make because they’re not going to give a full offer because this house requires carpet replacement. And so carpet stretching does that. It changes that, that mental math that the person’s going through the longer. Does the House require carpet replacement? They may potentially desire a carpet upgrade, but it doesn’t require a carpet replacement.
05:52 And so it changes it from the required over into the desired category. They could look at it. Maybe you don’t like the carpet, but you can’t bring the price down to the house because you just don’t like it because it’s useful and functional and there’s no real reason to replace it. But if it’s got to be a wrinkle in it, they almost always will come to you and say, hey, requires a carpet replacement. So all my offers, it has to be five or $10,000 less because this house needs new carpet even though it just needs a few hundred dollars, $500. Carpet stretching.
