Carpet Stretching Services
My carpet stretching services are one of the most requested repairs in Austin. The process of restretching is detaching the carpet from the tack strip. Then stretch from one end of the room to the other, reattach to the tack strip, then cut off the excess carpet, making a much tighter stretch, which will remove wrinkles, buckling, and waves. And most importantly, A power stretcher is always used for stretching, and for more information or to see more photos, please visit the carpet stretching page or call 512-800-0917
Carpet Patching Services
Other common carpet repairs in Austin are pet damage, holes, stains, burns, and fraying edges at transitions. I’m able to patch them all. A carpet patch is the process of cutting out the damaged area and replacing it with a suitable donor piece. The donor piece can come from the leftover carpet from the original installation or a closet, and remember, I also fix bad repairs.

I’ll be more than happy to do small carpet repairs. And whether it’s a stain or burn the size of a dime or something much more significant. I’ll be more than happy to take care of the carpet problems.
I’m your Berber carpet repair expert, and I have repaired all types and styles of Berber over the years. Berber can be one of the most challenging products to work with and requires great care and skill for the carpet repair to look good. Some Berbers have patterns. It is essential to line up the patterns, giving the repair a natural look.
If the carpet has come away from the threshold or the wall, I can repair this. Many things cause this problem. Someone pulled it back. It had just worn out, or the tack strip had broken free from the floor. And in some cases, tack strip or Z-bar will need replacing, or worn-out carpet may need stretching or a patch.
Carpet Repairs for Home Remodeling Projects
Are you planning to remodel or have a project involving pulling back, cutting, or removing the carpet? Feel free to call before doing this. I’ll be happy to advise how to do this without doing too much damage (Advice is free), or we can set up an appointment to have this done. Ripping up carpet can shred the backing, destroy transitions, corners, pull seams apart, and snag Berber rugs. Therefore, taking just a bit more care and time when cutting and pulling back the carpet will make it look better when it is back together. Not to mention this could save you money.
Never just cut into the carpet if you plan on putting it back together. Use a row cutter to cut the rug to reduce damage to naps or loops. And, if you don’t have a row cutter, cut with a slotted double-edge carpet knife with a new blade. Above all, Cut as straight as possible. A clean-cut will make a much cleaner and better-looking carpet transition to your newly installed flooring. If you replace the old carpet in one area with new flooring, leaving extra carpet at the doorways 2 to 3 inches is good.
Carpet Cleaning and Flooring Installation
If you have plans to have your flooring cleaned. I recommend having this done after the repair. I recommend looking for a certified cleaner in the Austin area on the IICRC Locator (Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification), If you’re looking for a flooring installer, I recommend a certified installer on CFI’s Find an Installer (International Certified Flooring Installers Association).

Frequently Asked Questions and Answers (FAQ) about Carpet Repairs.
1: Have your carpet professionally installed. Make sure that the installer uses a power stretcher.
2: Vacuum 2 to 3 times a week.
3: Avoid being barefoot. The oil from your feet can build up on the carpet over time and act as a magnet for dirt.
3: Avoid wearing dirty shoes in the house. Dirty shoes can track in dirt, oil, and other unwanted things in your home.
4: Clean stains as quickly as you can and only use products made for cleaning the carpet.
5: Always use professional carpet cleaners. I have seen everything from the carpet being stained to being soaked, causing delamination. Not removing all the shampoo from the carpet will make the carpet sticky.
6: Scotch-guard your carpet when you get the carpet cleaned.
YES, the carpet can be repaired without replacing it, which is much cheaper in most cases. If the carpet is loose and you see buckling, this can be fixed by stretching the carpet. If the carpet has pet damage, holes, stains, burns, and fraying edges at transitions, these issues can easily be fixed with a carpet patch.
Yes, it is a lot cheaper to repair the carpeting in almost all cases. If you were to replace the carpet in a small room with a very cheap carpet, the starting price is typically around $800. A repair is a fraction of the cost. Prices for carpet repair vary depending on the repairs needed.
