Here’s what to know about carpet stretching

If your in-good-condition carpet is bunching up at the edges of the baseboards or areas that don't lie flat and smooth, Anderson Tile Sales can stretch it to look new again.

If, on the other hand, the carpet has 'seen better days,' we invite you to shop for a replacement at our showroom in Odessa or Midland, TX. In addition, we have a great selection of carpet flooring from top companies like Shaw and Marquis.

Need to stretch

It's unnecessary to wait for your carpet to become unsightly or a tripping hazard before contacting us to restretch it.

If you see loose edges as you walk around the room, it's a warning sign that restretching is needed. In addition, mitigation is necessary if there has been damage to the base structure because the damage may cause the carpet to loosen or worse.

The carpet restretching process

The installation team will bring special carpet stretching tools into your home to complete the job, including tack strips and a stretcher.

They’ll tighten and straighten your carpet flooring, and likely, it will be necessary to cut and re-glue seams once the stretching is complete. The glue must dry thoroughly for about one day before you can walk on the carpet again.

Prepare for the installer's arrival

It's a good idea to vacuum the carpet flooring before our team arrives to limit the amount of dust and allergens in the air.

We'll take care of the larger pieces of furniture, but you'll need to remove electronics and other smaller items from the room, including those on the lower part of the wall. In addition, our team will need a clear path from their truck to the work area and, possibly, additional space.
