Doorway seams and transition areas to hard surface floors are a big part of our repair business. Especially since people quit smoking in the house and burning holes in the carpet
Loose carpets are usually caused by poor installation. Even a 30 year old carpet should not get loose, unless it was installed with a Knee Kicker
Neatest thing since sliced bread!
You whack it, I'll Tack it!
This is a power Stretcher. If your install guys don't show up with one of these, send them packing. This is THE ONLY acceptable tool for stretching a carpet.
I see more staples holding carpet down, than tackless. Tackless and Zbar are our friends around transition areas. Not fold and staple!
Designed to position a carpet not stretch it. Carpet is made to stretch 3 to 5 percent. There is NO WAY this tool will achieve this without ripping a hole in it.
I use an impressive (patented) dyeing system specifically made for bleach spots, I can't figure out how they did it but it works!
Before I found this product the ONLY way to fix these was to patch in a new piece of carpet. #Options
Don't throw it out just yet, believe it or not this can actually be repaired to like new or in most cases better than new
I have replaced a LOT of pad over the years foranything from pet urine to water damage
I have seen a LOT of these become a real problem area in the last few years, if it's not the dog shredding it, it's just bad installation techniques.
Insist that your installer use proper clampdown,zbar or whatever they choose to call it but notice there is no staple gun in this picture.
