Carpet stretching and restretching: What to know

Carpet stretching and restretching: What to know

Whether you've just had carpet installed or you've had carpet in place for some time, the stretching process is necessary at some point. It's essential to understand the process, so here are some facts that will make it easier when the time comes for service.

The carpet stretching and restretching process

When you choose carpeting as your new floor covering, stretching is integral to the installation process. Along with seam connection, this service ensures the proper fit and performance, even in your busiest spaces.

This service is also necessary if your flooring has been in place for years and your carpet has started to wrinkle, bunch, or become loose in specific spaces. This loosening can result from normal wear, heavy furniture, humidity, or an improper installation, and it poses a tripping hazard in addition to shortening your floor’s lifespan.

Restretching is when your floors are stretched again, pulling the carpet tight and securing it with tack strips at the edge of the room. It's the same process as the stretching done during installation but yields an updated visual, a protected lifespan, and money saved because you aren't replacing the carpet instead.
