[00:01] This is episode 3:20 and we’re gonna be talking the next few episodes about what our processes are, what we can do to help to minimize and maintain the damage to your carpet. Carpet stretching Tulsa since 1998. We are complete carpet. Give us a call today at nine. One, eight, four, nine, four, seven, zero nine three. Let us show you what we can do for you and get you on the road to healthy, clean, well maintained carpet. Uh, one of our core goals and missions here at complete carpet is that we want to help you to save thousands of dollars and you may wonder, how can we help you to save thousands of dollars? Well, have an average carpet, uh, is around five grand to replace. And on average it lasts around 10 years, every year under a every year that it does not make it to 10 is a c. every two years is worth a thousand plus dollars.
[00:55] So if you only get to five or six years and your carpets look awful and they’re all worn out, we’ll then you’ve potentially lost $2,000 in carpet life. You make it to 10 years, you’ve now broken. Even if you make it to 12 years, you’ve now gained a thousand dollars in carpet life. Fourteen years, you’ve gained another thousand dollars a carpet line, so every year that we can get you to enjoy a have, enjoy your carpets, past their regular use. If you get past 10 years, the you’re getting into the category where you’re making money with your carpet, so you may spend a little money to invest to repair it, but it also is getting your last lot more longevity in life as a lot like a repair shop for your automobile. If you don’t do regular oil changes, um, you could tank that vehicle in short order of as the, uh, as the engine would break down way, way, way before it was ever supposed to. Carpet Stretching Tulsa.
[01:49] Whereas if you maintain that oil changes on a regular basis, then you can get a lot of extra life out of that vehicle. When I’m be able to get the full life that you were supposed to get out of it and your carpets wasn’t very similar. It’s about the same that we are our, every time we come out and make those carpets look good and we do two things. One, we extending the life see built to use that carpet for a longer period of time. But also the secondary thing that we’re doing is that, um, who, if you could get. I’ve seen lots of garbage that have gotten really old, but the carpets are in such bad shape that the quality of life, the enjoyment of that particular carpet is it just gone. I mean it’s not a, it’s no longer an enjoyable thing anymore because the thing is the carpet is just flat. Carpet Stretching Tulsa.
[02:32] It’s been beaten all. Heck, it’s got rips and tears. I mean it is still a floor covering, but it’s such a bad floor covering that nobody is proud of the carpet, that I don’t want anyone to see it. They don’t only want to come in and look at it, but it just like they would be embarrassed to degree that somebody would have to take a look at that carpet or see what’s going on there. And so it’s important that you have regular maintenance. So that the carpet looks nice, feels nice, um, you to get down, he’d on it, lay on it, uh, you want to be able to enjoy and use it and have a good function. You may have a car that’s a, you know, you have, but if the engine’s blown on it, even just because you have it doesn’t mean it’s usable. Carpet Stretching Tulsa.
[03:13] So want to make sure that every day you’re enjoying that carpet. Carpet stretching Tulsa since 1998. Uh, one of the early things that we do to help to maintain carpet that we run into out a, um, a, uh, on a regular basis is that we will have people give us a call that have had their carpet install, but they were installed improperly, like within the first six months to a year. It’s wrinkled. Um, and they don’t want to call back the people that did a bad job the first time because, or they have called them back and they didn’t, they couldn’t or they didn’t fix it. And so they will give us a call out to be able to get that stretching done right with that one year warranty. Two, I’ll make sure that the carpets are going to be back in the way they should be, uh, one of the big reasons, one of the main reasons that people have in that first year, that they will be wrinkled or they will not be a black the way they should be.
[04:03] The number one thing I see is a poor installation. The person, um, uh, the people installing it or in too much of a rush, they may, we have one guy installing in one room while another guy who sold another room and the two of them don’t stretch against each other. So there’s a wrinkle between the two rooms or the hallways put in after the bedrooms are installed, which means that the hallway can not be tightened flat because the bedroom bedrooms were installed before. So there’s nothing that they can’t pull away from the hallway. You have to put the hallway at first, then pull the bedrooms away from it so you can pull that hallway tight. Um, another reason that we run into carpet stretching pulses since 1998 is that, um, the carpet is installed in cold weather or it’s shipped in from cold weather. It’s drop ship to a house and they unload it, start installing it right away without acclimating acclimatizing the carpet stretching tulsa.
[04:54] The carpet is stiff and cold from a northern environment. It comes in and they start to put it in the house and the carpet is still difficult as they stretch it in place. Um, one thing that the carpet is about half glue, it’s all by glue in the back. And so I think it’s too cold. It’s not stretchy. It loses, it loses its elasticity. And so you need to be able to get it warm enough backup. So to be able to stretch it properly, carpet stretching Tulsa, since 1998, we are complete carpet. Um, and it’s important, but I guess we could spend this entire episode just talking about the stretching process because, um, that’s probably one of the main focus. One main goal that we run into is people who have wrinkles in their carpet. Now, every time you step on it, you can see the carpet physically moving and bending and shifting and so that will cause the carpet to were really fast.
[05:40] Once you get a wrinkle and then every time you step on that wrinkle, the wrinkle now bends and moves causing the carpet to relax even faster and it will just. You’ll see one little wrinkle and all of a sudden explodes into one big hump and a multiple hubs across the room because now the carpet is wearing out much faster than it should be. That’s so get in there and get those carpets stretched and flat tight again, to extend that life of that carpet because the harder the stiffer, the flatter the carpet is, the longer it lasts. The other part that I see sometimes is people will have new carpet install and then the people that move the furniture in or they will move the furniture back themselves and they will drag the furniture across the carpet. Creative big humps because the heavy furniture is now damaging or pulling the carpet and then pinning in place. And so it’s important that you move heavy pieces of furniture, that you lift them up and you set them on the carpet. You don’t pull them across the carpet, uh, that way you don’t damage your new carpet by putting extra stretch on it or pull pin in place. Carpet stretching Tulsa. Since 1998. We are complete carpet.
