Common Carpet Problems

Burns. Cigars or other ashes can leave a nasty burn mark in the carpet. To remedy the situation it is necessary to remove the burned area and replace it with a “plug” or matching piece of carpet. When properly performed, the repair is nearly invisible.

Dull Flat Carpet. Is your carpet flat instead of fluffy? Tough to the touch rather than soft and supple? Chances are it could use a deep cleaning with professional raking and grooming. Accumulated debris, inferior cleaning products and normal wear take a toll on carpet. Restore your carpet back to its former glory with a call to have it professionally cleaned.

Waves & Ripples. Stop warning visitors about the tripping hazard and have your carpet stretched instead. Waves and ripples appear when a carpet no longer fits properly, has stretched or come loose.

Rips, Tears & Holes. Depending upon the size of the damage and type of carpet there are several options available to make the carpet look as good as new. It is important to have the work performed by a qualified professional to avoid a “patched’ appearance.

Loose Fibers or Snags. Berber is prone to snags but all carpets are capable of loose fibers or snagging that may result in unsightly spots where you need them least.

Water Damage. Even a relatively minor flood can leave carpets smelling bad and looking worse. A casual cleaning is rarely enough to eliminate the bacteria and other lasting effects after a flood. Instead, consider hiring a professional company capable of treating the area with anti-microbial treatment and enzyme treatments to eliminate the root of the problem.
