• Carpet stretching can solve many issues with minimal expense. Stretching will help the carpet look flush again. It will also make the cleaning process more effective because quality cleaners and vacuums will pull the loose fabric causing more damage to the flooring. Stretching will lengthen the lifespan because it pulls the underlying warp and it redistributes the patterns of wear. The process is fairly simple, and homeowners usually don’t need to remove all the furniture from a room.
