When it’s time to stretch, we are one of the only companies that use power stretching. A power stretcher doesn’t use electricity. It uses leverage to stretch the carpet and alleviate the chance of wrinkles. Carpet will expand and stretch with traffic and usage. This causes wrinkles. When stretched properly carpet wrinkles are less likely to develop down the road. Another reason we can provide a Lifetime Installation Warranty. When we provide the power stretching service then our experts trim away any excess flooring and tuck it under the drywall. This provides a seamless finish that leaves your room looking good as new.
It’s a very similar installation for sheet vinyl, though they do not need to stretch it. Also, glue is used instead of the tack strip. First, glue is applied to the floor. Then, the sheet vinyl is placed.
Power stretching is important for many reasons. First and foremost, safety reasons. A carpet full of ripples, wrinkles, and bulges can create a fall risk to those in your home. This is also the same for loose carpet. If you want to protect the loved ones and guests in your home carpet stretching is a great option. Let us not forget too, if you trip on the carpet and are holding a glass of wine, or a plate of food…now you have a whole other mess and stain on your hands as well.
Power Stretching Gives Your Carpet Life
The longevity of your carpet’s life is also especially important. Power stretching is also particularly important for the life of your carpet. If you see that your carpet is pulling away from the tack strips, stretching may be able to reverse the issue and put it back in place. Obviously, power stretching would be a much more cost-effective way of fixing the issue rather than purchasing a full room carpet replacement.
Carpets aesthetic beauty is also equally important. The sight of carpet wrinkles and lumps is an unpleasant sight in any home. A smooth, clean carpet surface creates a warm, cozy feel. Walking into a room with carpet with bumps and lumps throughout it creates an unpleasant sight. No one wants to look at that, right?
