Causes of Carpet Damage and How Professional Repair Can Rectify Them

Posted on January 13, 2018 · Posted in CRG Carpet Cleaning Blog

Your carpet can really take a beating and if you want it to continue to look good you have to care for it and deal with any damage that occurs as soon as it happens.  A professional carpet company can ensure that your carpet stays looking great for years to come so that you get the most out of it.  The most important thing you can do is get in touch with a carpet professional.  Here are the most common types of carpet damage and how they can be dealt with:

  1. Whether the stains are dirt, food, pet-related or from another source, when your carpet comes in contact with some type of soiling it should be dealt with by a professional.  If you try to remove a stain yourself you may not use the right products and/or you can worsen the damage by allowing it to spread under the carpet and into the underlay.  Once the stain is in the underlay it can wick back up into the carpet if it is not completely removed and dealt with.
  1. Lumps and bunching. As carpet ages, it can stretch and this causes lumps and bunching.  A carpet professional can remove those unsightly imperfections by smoothing out the carpet in those areas and ensuring that the slack is removed.  When carpet starts to bunch up it can be a dangerous tripping hazard or it can lead to rips and snags.
  1. If your carpet has a tear, a rip or a snag that can lead to more damage.  A carpet professional can identify damage quickly and make the necessary repairs so that further damage is not sustained.  Tears can be repaired if they are caught soon enough so that they do not become worse.  In some cases, patches can be incorporated carefully by removing a piece of carpet from an area that is out of the line of sight.  Some people even keep extra pieces of carpet for such future emergency repairs.  Patching can be a good way to rectify carpet damage, however, the patch must be matched correctly and cut professionally to ensure that it fits well into the area it is intended for.  The new piece is glued into the void and any seams left behind are smoothed until they cannot be detected.  The surrounding area is trimmed so that it matches the rest of the carpet.
  1. Household pets and other causes can cause your carpet to have odours that can be noticeable and strong.  Cleaning the carpet on your own by vacuuming and deodorizing may not completely deal with the issue.  A professional carpet company can ensure that your carpet is completely clean and deodorized and looks as good as new too.  Odours can be extremely unpleasant if they are not dealt with quickly.

Most carpet cleaning businesses offer other important services such as common carpet repairs.  You can always ask your carpet professional if the service that you need is one that they can take care of for you.  Once you determine that the service is something that can be done by a local carpet care professional, then you can arrange a time for them to come to your home or business to assess the scope of the job.

Often the damage or issue can be dealt with quickly and with minimal work, however, if the damage is too extensive then it may be that the carpet needs replacement.  This is the worst case scenario, so it is a good idea to simply contact your local carpet care professional and have them make that judgment call.
