Express Carpet repair comes down to just a few categories, Carpet stretching, patching, and seam repair. Everything else we do falls into one or more of these categories:
Carpet stretching: If you have wrinkles, lumps, waves, bulges, bunches and areas coming loose, I suggest that you go to the gym, see a doctor and get some exercise, however, If your carpet has wrinkles, lumps, waves, bulges, bunches or is coming loose, call us, we'll take care of it by re-stretching it.
Carpet patching: When you need a carpet patched in St Joseph because you have a damaged carpet, we'll ask you to provide the carpet that will be necessary to finish the job. Many times people don't have the spare carpet to do the repair. If that's the case for you, we can steal some from your closet. If that's not okay with you, then you need to find the carpet at a carpet store. We don't go looking for carpet for you. That part is up to you.
Carpet - floor transitions: After new floor is installed, the last thing people do is the carpet to floor transition. Many wood floor contractors and tile contractors don't do this because it takes super-carpet-guy powers and tools. Give us a call for your carpet to floor transitions and we'll have it done in a jiffy!
Berber snag or pull or run: We see this problem 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 The Berber carpet comes apart at the ..... wait for it.... wait for it... you guessed it, it comes apart at the seams. It only takes one loose bit of yarn to start to (run) and before you know it, it's caught up in the vacuum and you have a real problem. When you have a Berber run, have it repaired right away, before it gets worse.
Carpet Seam Repair: Carpet seams are supposed to stay together until your carpet wears out. When seams fall apart it's because the installer didn't follow industry standards when he installed it. We get calls nearly every day to repair carpet seams and we can usually do it well enough that can't see that there was ever a problem in the first place.
Carpet Stair Repair: If the carpet on the stairs matches the carpet in the rest of the house, and the first few stairs are worn out or damaged, you don't have to replace your entire carpet. We can take some extra out of your closet and use it to replace the first couple of stairs.
If you want to replace the entire stairway we can do that too. We will remove the carpet from one bedroom and use it to replace the stairway, then you only need to buy enough carpet for one small bedroom rather than the entire home.
Commercial Carpet Repair: 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.
Flood Damaged Carpet: In St Joseph we know something about floods. 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 takes forever to dry. 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 clean it for you if you'd like. The only thing you may need is a spa day and a nice cocktail.... you'll need to supply the that for yourself.
