It used to have to be very careful with it because they’re more susceptible to water with our jute back natural fibers Carpet Stretching Tulsa.

00:57 But now new carpets are all completely synthetic and so they are a lot. They’re a lot less sensitive to the environment and the things that are going on around them. Uh, one thing that is important as you’re working with your to keep your carpet on the good healthy level is that you always try to make sure that you’re cleaning the carpets on a regular basis. But, uh, one thing that has happened is that as your carpet is installed, a, sometimes it is installed improperly, the proper way to install carpet as a, you take the carpet you put in the room. Let’s just use a square, a 12 by 12 room as an example. So there’s no seams, there’s nothing special about it. What you want to do is you want to Tuck one corner in to give yourself an anchor, and then you need to pull along that wall parallel to a wall.

01:45 You want to stretch to an opposite quarter and you stretch that in to get that nice and tight and you then tucked. That whole wall is a, this wall does not need to be stretched too because there’s nothing connected to the other side of the room. So now one of those two rooms on those two walls, you take any stretch to the next quarter, so you’ve now made an l shape with your stretching and you tuck that wall into cut it and Tuck it. You’re wanting to cut the carpet so that it just goes a little bit longer than the, uh, than the area that needed to be in so that you can tuck it under the wall and have a little something that will hold the carpet in place. Now you’ve got your first two walls secure you. Now we’re going to stretch away from those two walls Carpet Stretching Tulsa.

02:29 Now you’ll start in the corner of one of the two and you stretch at a slight diagonal away from the wall that you’re stretching from and the wall that you’re coming from. So if you were to take the tucked corner, because right now you’ve got three quarters duct, that untucked corner, you’re going to be taking stretch along that wall on the other wall. You’re going to stretch along that wall to that quarter. They’re going to get them going at an angle towards the corner so that you can stretch the length and the width at the same time. This creates a good tension all the way across the room and allows the carpet to be able to stay tight. Uh, as long as you’ve got the carpet in there. Now you should always use the power stretcher with installing a new carpet and almost always use the power stretcher to restretch carpet that’s been installed, uh, that with the power stretcher wanting put at a minimum, a half an inch.

03:15 Optimally, you want to put about one inch of stretch across the room so that the carpet is now like a rubber band across the room. Carpet stretching Tulsa since 1998. We’ve done this so many times where somebody will come in after someone who is not done the proper installation technique. And so they carpet will overtime a wrinkle into the room. And the reason that it wrinkled Luca is more carpet than fits the space. Uh, one of the things that you could do to try to eliminate this is by picking a good carpet installation company or someone with a good warranty, and then in that first year making sure you keep an eagle eye out and watching the carpet to make sure that if you do notice any imperfections or any wrinkles or looseness to the carpet that you call them during your warranty period to make sure that they get that tight backup.

04:02 Uh, hopefully every job has always done perfectly, but there’s always room for human error error and sometimes that turns into carpet that just wasn’t installed properly. Another reason is as a carpet is installed at a time where the weather is too cold, carpet becomes, since it’s mostly glue with a backing and fibers, it becomes very stiff when it’s cold and very loose appliable. Once it gets warmed up. So it’s not up to room temperature, ms sitting in the room at room temperature for awhile. Then it would not be able to be able to stretch it very much bigger than one lobby is flexible or as stretchy as it will be. When it gets warmed up. I’m sort of like a candle, a candle, you can play with it, but once you get it heated up, it becomes more flowing. Liquid wax and a lot more malleable than when it’s hard stiff Carpet Stretching Tulsa.

05:00 This is dude. I would love to connect with you. Give us a call at nine. One, eight, four, nine, four, seven, zero, nine, three and a one thing that I think it’s important while looking at your installation and stretching process, have you make sure you have somebody who’s got a good, has the power stretcher, trying to need kick. A large area is just not effective and the power structure will be able to do a more, a deeper, stronger stretch so that you’re able to get your carpet’s nice and tight. Stay tight for the life of the carpet. All carpet does relax a little bit and kind of slightly grow over time. Uh, it’s more like getting a pair of good leather shoes. As you put them on, he started to wear them around as you walk in them, they are going to start to relax and kind of form around the shape of the foot of your foot. So once you have those two walls installed, you then back trim off excess carpet, Tuck it into the tech space to doing.
