Carpet Patching - Riverside, CA
Every homeowner or landlord will face a situation where the existing carpet in their property will have to be patched.

Fortunately, there is an economical solution known as carpet patching that can save you the expense of replacing your carpet. This is a relatively easy task and requires nothing more than a little time and a few simple supplies.
Professional carpet cleaning companies that offer repairs such as carpet patching should be able to tackle this damage with no problem. Depending on the size of the damage, the repair can range anywhere from $60 to $280. Typically, a carpet repair technician will assess the damaged carpet, locate an inconspicuous area in the home where a new piece of carpet can be removed (unless textiles are left over from the original install). Once a new piece of carpet is located and cut, the carpet patch can begin.
The professional will properly mark and measure the area removed in a square or rectangular piece. The new piece of carpet is fit to the original cut to fit in the hole left behind, once the carpet is fit and the grain is matched, the new piece is glued or seamed into place, usually with a heated epoxy. Visible seams left behind by the cut are smoothed out so they are invisible. When these steps are complete it is best to not walk in the general area for 24-36 hours. Excessive foot traffic may loosen the repair. If you have a damaged area in your home that requires carpet patching, contact us at 951-787-8787 serving Riverside, CA and surrounding areas.
