We Do Repairs so Call Us if Your Carpet is Pulling Up or Has Ripples, Waves, and Bulges.
We know what to do and how to do it if your carpet is pulling up. We have the knowledge, experience and equipment to keep your carpet in good shape for years to come.

  • There are several reasons why your carpet may lift, including how it was installed and maintained, lack of acclimatisation, humidity, the dragging of heavy items across the carpet, and excess foot traffic.
  • Differences in humidity levels and temperature may change the carpet’s ability to stretch, which causes buckling when it relaxes. The carpet pulls on the edges as people walk on it if it is wrinkled, and it gets tugged away from the tack strips or threshold. This results in the carpet pulling up at the edges.
  • Inadequate stretching during installation, under-padding that is not dense enough, and over-wetting during a flood or incorrect steam cleaning may also cause your flooring to expand and pull away over time.
  • A primary backing keeps the fibres intact, and a secondary backing holds everything together. Delamination ensues when the two backings separate because the adhesive breaks down, which causes the top of the carpet to move and lump up.

We suggest that you take action to prevent your wall-to-wall carpet unravelling at the edges, which can bring about lasting damage. Let us fix carpet that is pulling up so you can avoid the expense of replacing it.

Vacuum Pulling Up Carpet Fibres

Our focus is on excellent customer service and your satisfaction. We have some of the most up-to-date products and equipment in Wellington to do the job.

Your carpet may be warping because your vacuum is too low for the fineness and fibre strand length of a soft or looped carpet brand, or the suction is too close to the backing and has lifted it off the padding underneath.

It is difficult to push the vacuum cleaner through soft carpet fibres to remove dirt particles as it is, and fibres can be damaged by a rotating vacuum brush that is very low and thus too abrasive. If you are seeing a fuzzy appearance or blooming on your carpet, this may be the reason.

A buckling carpet needs to be restretched by a professional installer before the ripples become too severe and cause creasing. It is too late to fix the problem once your flooring has bent sharply at the peak.
