When you need a carpet patched because you have a damaged carpet, stains, pet accidents, if your dog gets locked into a room and tries to dig his way out. We'll ask you if there is any extra carpet left over from the original install for the best match to complete the patch. Many times there may not be extras, no worries. We can steal some from your closet, under the bed or under a piece of furniture that not going to be moved. If that's not okay with you, then you need to find the carpet at a carpet store that would be the best match for your patch.

Seams coming apart or fraying is a problem we see nearly every day. The problem is that installers are supposed to seal the seams with a latex seam sealer before seaming them together. Most installers don't bother and then especially Berber carpet comes apart and starts fraying. It only takes one loose bit of yarn to start to (run) and before you know it, it's caught up in the vacuum, a pet starts playing with it and then you have a real problem. When you have a Berber run, have it repaired right away, before it gets worse.

Commercial carpet has some unique problems. For one thing, commercial carpet has a low nap. Because of this low nap, the seams stand out. We often do commercial carpet repairs when an office remodels and removes a wall or two. This leaves a 9" gap that needs to be filled. It takes more carpet than you would think to fill this gap because we first need to cut it straight. By the time we do cut the carpet straight, it could be closer to 12 inches or so. If you can't find any extra carpet to do the repairs with, we can often take it from under filing cabinets or some other furniture that never moves. If you don't like that idea, then you need to go look for the carpet in a carpet store. If you can't find an exact match, it may look good to go with a completely different color. Then instead of looking like a bad patch, it looks like a creative choice you made.

We know a little something about floods also. When it happens to your carpet and padding, it's no laughing matter. The problem is when the padding gets soaking wet. When the padding gets soaked, it must be removed immediately. When you call us to take care of your flooded carpet needs, we come out to your home, pull back the carpet, remove the padding, set up high power blowers, dry the carpet, replace the pad, re-install the carpet and then recommend a cleaner for you if you'd like.
