Correct carpet installation is imperative for any carpet to perform successfully, both during use and after cleaning. If you had previous carpet installation by someone who didn’t quite do it the right way you may get buckles and ripples. Ayoub N&H can resolve this problem with tight restretching of your carpet.
Most residential and some commercial carpet is installed over a cushion or padding. It is fastened to the floor by stretching the carpet onto pins know as a tackless strip (in the old days carpet was tacked directly to the floor).(Some commercial carpet is alternately glued down to hold up under heavy use in public places and offices.)
Ayoub N&H installs carpet according to manufacturer’s specifications and fully stretches it with a professional power stretcher. Some carpet installers use the less effective method of using a “knee kicker” device. If this method was used when your carpet was installed you will eventually get the tell-tale buckling after time. All the “give” in new carpeting must be removed at time of installation or the carpet will shift, especially in high traffic areas.
Another poor installation problem is weak seaming where carpet sections are joined. Cut carpet must be beaded or “buttered” with a line of carpet adhesive. The edges are then brought together, forming the seam, which is held in place with hot-melt seam tape. A low quality installation will involve cheap seaming tape with the least amount of glue to save money. The unfortunate result is a weak seam – prone to breaking from wear-and-tear and cleaning.
If Ayoub N&H installs your wall-to-wall carpeting it will be done with the best methods available without the shortcuts and inferior methods some installers use. If your wall-to-wall carpeting gets “the ripples and waves” Ayoub N&H can reinstall your carpeting in Maryland (Montgomery & Howard Counties in Maryland, Washington DC, and Northern VA) by stretching it as tight as possible and repairing the seaming so you can get longer life from your carpeting – without any more bumps.
