As you go about your carpet shopping process and begin to speak with professionals about the installation procedure, you will hear about “stretching” as one of the components of the installation. We are often asked what that is, and we’d like to offer more information about that.

Stretching can be performed as a kind of maintenance for your flooring as well, especially if it’s been in place for a long time. This service can bring amazing results, giving you a nearly new appearance all over again.

Carpet floors and the need for stretching

Stretching is one of the last things to happen during your flooring installation and assures a great fit and a beautiful looking floor. But it’s also crucial for those floors that have been in place for years. Over time, carpet floors can stretch and bunch, which not only looks unappealing but creates unsafe walking spaces as well.

For flooring that is heavily traveled or has gone through many years of wear, this can also happen as seams give way or come apart completely. And some very specific signs point towards the need for stretching services.

Any area of your flooring that looks wrinkled, wavy, or lumpy is undoubtedly in need of stretching. The same is true for a floor covering that has pulled loose around the wall borders or at any place where seams fasten together. In proper condition, your flooring should be perfectly flat against the floor.
