Ideas & Inspiration from Portland Flooring & Carpet Contractors

Portland Carpet Repair

In Portland, carpet repair is an unfortunate and unexpected hassle. Although it may feel preventable, nearly all carpeting will need some form of repair or extensive maintenance during its lifetime. Quarantining pets and asking guests to remove their shoes will dramatically reduce your weekly cleaning schedule, but there's really no way to completely protect your carpet from the errant cup of coffee or glass of wine. But don't think that just because an accident has occurred that your carpet is ruined! Whether you have localized damage, moisture exposure, or problems associated with old age, you shouldn't give up on your carpet too soon.

Cut and Plug
By far the most common carpet repair, cut and plug is exactly what it sounds like. For stains, burns, or other damage focused on a specific spot, the best option is to simply cut out the damaged carpet and replace it. Self-explanatory, in theory, actually completing a cut and plug repair is by no means a gimmie. Without experience working with carpet and a touch of finesse, you have little hope of creating a durable and less-than-noticeable repair. Though patch kits are readily available, they can rarely produce the kind of seamless results that come with hiring a pro.

More Carpet Repairs

Carpet Stretching: If your carpet is showing wrinkles, especially at the edges of a room, the fasteners may have become loose, requiring a process of stretching and reinstalling your carpet. Once you notice a problem, don't hesitate to call in a professional. Wrinkles can seemingly multiply overnight creating a dangerous tripping hazard.

Carpet Dyeing: Some carpet fibers fade and lose their color and vibrancy well before their time. Although this is most common in areas with more prolonged and intense solar radiation, no carpet is immune. Carpet dyeing can also be a great way to redecorate your home without the cost of entirely new carpet.

Off-Site Cleaning and Repair: There are some things that can only be done to a carpet when it's not in your home. Commercial-grade cleaning solutions and treatments may be best applied away from your home. This may be the only hope in solving the insidious and hard to remedy odor of some carpeting.

Repair vs. Replacement
When it comes to extensive carpet repair, Portland homeowners must make a simple choice: repair or replace. The choice is an easy one if you have money to burn, but since most of us don't, here are a few characteristics of carpets that are good candidates for repair rather than replacement:

If your carpet is less than 5 years old, there's a good chance that it is a good candidate for repair, even if the damage seems severe. Carpet's life expectancy tends to be in the 10-20 year range, depending on its quality. Replacing carpet before its time is sometimes necessary after a fire or flood, but it is an expense that should be avoided whenever possible.

If the necessary repair will be confined to a small area, you're likely to save money by choosing carpet repair. Portland homeowners might see a large stain or rip and imagine that replacement is their only option. Fortunately, just about any localized problem can be easily handled by your local carpet professionals at a fraction of the cost of replacement!

If you have remnants left over from the carpet's installation, there's a good chance that repair is a good option. Many of the problems associated with carpet repair stem from the difficulty of finding remnants that match exactly. While a perfect match can often be procured by removing carpet from an out of the way area (like a bedroom closet), keeping a few large remnants from the initial installation will save you time and hassle during repair while simultaneously reducing costs and providing a perfect match!

Prices and Pros
While $200 is about the average cost of carpet repair, Portland, Oregon is home to a very large number of carpet companies, few of which will charge exactly the same amount for the same project. That said, we tend to see bunches of projects in the $100 to $200 range, offset by a few major carpet repair projects that cost several hundred dollars. The most expensive type of carpet service (other than new installation, of course) tends to be carpet dyeing which costs about $700 on average. As you would expect, it's rare to see carpet repairs go more than $1,000, as the average cost of carpet installation is only about $1,600. With small projects of this nature, you may want to ask about any other home maintenance services your contractor can offer. If the contractor is coming out to your home anyway, you may be able to get a reduced rate for general carpet cleaning, re-grouting of tile, or any number of other smaller maintenance projects.
