Reviews of Atlanta Carpet Repair Services

Project: Repair, Refasten, or Stretch Carpeting
Atlanta, GA w

The staff of YesSir Services had a horrible challenge to remove carpet, install new padding and then reinstall the existing carpet which had been flooded. The finished product is so perfect no one would ever know it had been moved at all. They were processional, prompt and very reasonable with their fee. I will certainly use them for any future needs and recommend them to my friends.

Atlanta Carpet Repair

Carpet repair in Atlanta is more common than you might think. Cigarette burns, heavy stains, tears, and loose and rippling carpet, are all common examples of carpet damage that shows up in Atlanta homes. Even things as simple as your five-year-old's Silly Putty, or a pre-chewed glob of Hubba Bubba can do irreversible damage if left unnoticed and works down into the carpet pile. Luckily for homeowners, damaged carpet doesn't have to translate to new carpet. From minor repairs to major jobs like re-stretching and re-fastening, the world of carpet repair in the ATL can help you to salvage damaged carpeting and make it look like new again.

Costs Your first option when it comes to carpet repair is to bring in a professional. For some repairs, such as carpet re-stretching and re-fastening, as well as removing tough-set stains, hiring professionals such as a carpet installer or a carpet cleaning service is far and away your best bet. Smaller repairs are also easily hired out to professional carpet repairmen, with the obvious benefit of getting professional grade results. As for how much a basic carpet repair in Atlanta costs, based on the data that HomeAdvisor has collected from post-project homeowner surveys, an average carpet repair in the ATL runs about $180. They can cost as little as $50, and as much as $450, depending on the size and nature of your repair, but that $180 figure makes for solid ground to stand on until you get a more project specific estimate.

DIY vs. Hiring a Professional Not every carpet repair requires that you hire a professional to do the job, however, and many homeowners do opt to tackle carpet repair on their own to save a few bucks. Solving the dilemma of whether to hire a job out or go it alone almost always seems to hinge on two factors.

  • #1: The Size of The Problem—Small areas of damage (i.e. cigarette burns, spilled candle wax, and minor punctures or tears) are generally things that an average homeowner can tackle themselves. Bigger jobs like carpet re-stretching and re-fastening are most often needed because of a poor installation in the first place. In those cases, it usually makes more sense to bring in somebody who knows what they're doing and who has the right tools, or there's a good chance you'll be having to repeat the repair again in the not-to-distant future.

  • #2: Homeowner Expectations—The other factor that influences whether you want to perform a repair yourself or hire a repair service, is your expectations regarding the final result. While the vast majority of DIY jobs turn out well and can't be spotted from across a room (remember, unlike most other home improvements, the goal of carpet repair is for it to go unnoticed!), there's a pretty good chance that once you get up close, people will be able to tell some work has been done. Professional carpet repairmen in Atlanta, on the other hand, have a lot of tricks up their sleeves that they can use to make your repair virtually invisible, even to the most critical eye. In other words, if you're patching a cigarette burn in that 15-year-old shag in the basement, do it yourself. When it comes to the brand new carpet in the living room, however, it pays to call in an expert.

    Simple DIY Repairs Repairs that fall into this category include tufted carpet fibers, loose strings, and fairly minor damage like surface burns, spilled candle wax, and missing bubble gum. Believe it or not, most of these can be solved with a sharp pair of scissors. Tufted carpet fibers, exposed strands of carpet fibers, and burns at the very top edge of the carpet fibers can be trimmed off at, or just below, the carpet pile. Be careful not to trim too short, however, or you'll find yourself in the midst of a patch job instead. Finally, don't forget old standbys for common carpet crises. For example, a hot iron and a paper sack can lift candle wax out of a carpet lickety split, and taking an ice cube to bubble gum in order to make it easier to pull out is always worth a try in the interest of saving money.

    Carpet Patching Carpet patching is the other common DIY carpet repair out there, and entails cutting out the damaged portion of carpet (this should only be done with very small areas), and then replacing it with a new piece. To perform this repair you'll need a leftover piece of carpet, a utility knife, a cup or can, and some carpet tape. Cut a circle around the damage using the can to guide you, cut a patch from your leftover piece of carpet (also using the can, so that your patch is the same size as the carpet you removed), and then plug the patch into the hole, installing the carpet tape first so the patch holds in place.

    Better Left to the Pros At the risk of sounding redundant, you're well advised not to try to re-stretch or re-attach your carpets on your own. There are simply too many things that can go wrong with carpet re-stretching to justify the lengths you'll have to go to in order to do it yourself, which include researching the process for stretching carpets properly, as well renting a number of job-specific tools you'll need to get the repair done right. Since poor installation is likely the root of your problem in the first place, securing the services of someone who guarantees the job will be done correctly is worth the extra expense. Not only will you be able to rest easy knowing a professional is handling your carpet repair in Atlanta, but you'll enjoy the security of being able to ask your contractor to return and make things right if the unthinkable should happen and your problem resurfaces in an unreasonable amount of time.

    Carpet repair in Atlanta is one task that no homeowner wants to be faced with. When carpet damage does rear its ugly head, however, there is no substitute for carpet repair done right.
