Expert Tack Strip Replacement Services by KIWI

As your carpet ages, you may notice lumpy, loose, or bulging carpeting, which can all be corrected by simply stretching the carpet, which is one of the best solutions to carpet aging. But before the carpet is re-stretched, the old carpet tack strips must be replaced with new ones to ensure the carpet and padding are properly secured. Tack strips are generally installed around the perimeter of a room before carpeting is installed. It is common for tack strips to become damaged or worn out over time, causing carpet appearance issues such as carpet starting to loosen or ripple. A professional must replace the tack strips.

Our technicians have the training and experience required to repair and restore any type of carpet damage, including bulges, pet damage, waves, holes, tears, and unsightly seams due to wear and tear. In the event that your carpet repair involves replacing old or damaged tack strips, our technicians will:

  1. Remove the old tack strips: Our trained KIWI Services technician will carefully pry up and remove the old, worn-out tack strips from the floor.
  2. Install the new tack strips: He will then install new tack strips along the edges of the room. These strips are integral to holding the carpet in place, so their secure installation is a crucial step.
  3. Re-stretch the carpet: The carpet is stretched back into its original position using professional carpet stretching tools. This process helps to remove wrinkles, ripples, or any loose areas, ensuring that the carpet lies flat and taut against the floor.
  4. Reattach the carpet: Once the carpet is stretched properly, our technician will meticulously reattach it onto the new tack strips. This process ensures a tight, secure fit and that the carpet doesn’t shift or bulge over time.
  5. Smooth and inspect the carpet: After the carpet has been reattached, our carpet technician will smooth it out to remove any potential minor bulges or uneven areas. A thorough final inspection is carried out to ensure the carpet appears as seamless and smooth as possible, enhancing the aesthetics and safety of your room

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Why do tack strips need to be replaced during carpet re-stretching?
Tack strips must be replaced during carpet re-stretching because old or damaged tack strips may not securely hold the carpet in place. Replacing them ensures the carpet and padding are properly secured, preventing future loosening, ripples, or bulges. Proper tack strip installation is crucial for a smooth, tight carpet finish.

How long does it take to replace carpet tack strips?
The time it takes to replace carpet tack strips depends on the size of the area being repaired and the extent of the damage. Generally, for an average-sized room, replacing tack strips can be completed within a few hours. This includes removing the old strips, installing new ones, and re-stretching the carpet.

What are the signs that carpet tack strips need to be replaced?
Signs that carpet tack strips need to be replaced include visible loosening or rippling of the carpet, difficulty in keeping the carpet secured in place, and noticeable wear or damage to the strips themselves. If you notice your carpet shifting or bulging, it’s likely time to replace the tack strips to ensure a secure fit.

Can old tack strips cause damage to my carpet?
Yes, old or damaged tack strips can cause further damage to your carpet. Worn-out tack strips may not securely hold the carpet, leading to movement and increased wear and tear on the fibers. Replacing old tack strips ensures the carpet remains securely in place, reducing the risk of damage.

How often should tack strips be replaced?
Tack strips should typically be replaced when you notice signs of wear or damage or when the carpet is being re-stretched. There is no set timeframe for replacing tack strips, as their longevity depends on the amount of foot traffic, carpet type, and overall wear and tear. Regular inspections by professionals can help determine when replacement is necessary.
