Carpet Seam Repair

Most homes contain some rooms with wall to wall carpet in Southern California. The best option for flooring for most people is carpet because it is durable, comfortable and budget friendly compared to hard surfaces. Carpet also provides added insulation during colder months of the year and is soft and comfortable to walk on.. First Choice Cleaning, Repair & Installation is the best choice for all of your repair needs. We have been in business since 1973 and is a family owned company that provides the best service at an affordable cost. Our goal is to provide you with long lasting results so that you can get as many generations out of your carpet as you desire. A prevalent carpet situation is failing seams. This occurs for many reasons but is fixable in almost every case. Many people do not realize that carpet is not one single piece, but multiple pieces glued together when it is installed. When glue wears from the primary backing of the carpet, fraying of the seam occurs which requires a carpet seam repair. And that is where we come in to save the day. For minor damage, we join the seams together using bonding latex adhesive which is the solution to most carpet seam repairs. For more extensive damage, we remove the damaged portion and replace the section of carpet with new or matching carpet. We will provide an on site estimate and if you are happy with the price, we will perform the service for you. It is that simple. Call us today for your carpet seam repair needs.

In many homes across California wall to wall carpet is a fact of life. Nobody thinks twice about it.

Everyone loves wall to wall carpet because it is inexpensive, durable and comfortable to walk on. Wall to wall carpeting as a bonus provides insulation during the cold winter months! This is a win-win situation for you!

While wall to wall carpet has its many benefits, it is not invincible. The seams in wall to wall carpeting will fail from time to time. Our repair service meets the strict standards set by the IICRC (Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification).

Pet Damaged Carpet Repair

Our beloved pets do not mean to cause damage to our homes and carpet but it does happen. So when it does happen, it does not mean you need to replace the carpet or flooring. Repairs can erase carpet damage or mitigate the appearance of the carpet damage. Dogs and cats and even other domesticated pets will claw, bite, chew, scratch, dig, urinate and defecate on the carpet for countless reasons. If this occurs, First Choice Cleaning, Repair & Installation will solve your carpet repair needs fast and affordably. Because we have been in business since 1973, we have seen and repaired just about every carpet repair type of need. To repair damage to carpet from pets we remove the damaged section of carpet and repair it with a new section of carpet using a permanent remnant. This provides you with a solution that blends so well, it looks like the carpet damage never happened. If a pet urinates or defecates on the carpet, we remove the odor and stains using an enzyme formula that breaks down the pet urine at the molecular level, eradicating the odors and stains permanently, not masking them like a deodorizer would. Our urine sensors and black lights will find any areas affected so that we can treat any all all pet urine stain and odor issues you may be experiencing. Please call today for your free, non-obligation quote.

Stretching Loose Carpet

Carpet ripples and carpet bumps and lumps can come out of no where. One day the carpet looks great and then one day you are worried you have a huge expense to under take by replacing the floor. Don't worry, we can fix this problem for you. Most people want to know why carpets become loose and rippled but there are many factors. Some factors include, poor installation from the beginning, the loss of elasticity, heat and humidity, dragging furniture or sliding anything on the carpet, over saturation or water damage and the list goes on. In most cases, it was poor installation by the carpet installer. To quickly  get carpets installed (especially when you see the cheap installation rates advertised at big carpet sales locations), they kick the carpet into place instead of using a carpet stretcher which actually negotiates the carpet into place when it is first being installed. When carpet is kicked into place and pinned to the tackstrip, it is only a matter of time before gravity and weight pull the carpet back and buckling and rippling in the carpets occur. This can happen as early as the first year of brand new carpet purchases. By this point, your warranty is typically up and your installer released the liability to you. We use the right tools to stretch loose carpet and install carpet which includes a carpet power stretcher. This method takes us longer but is so effective, your carpet will last like the olden days when people had carpet for 30 years. If poor installation is not the cause of the problem and a failed tack strip piece is the problem, we just replace the tack strip and power stretch the carpet to restretch the carpet into place. Properties that are vacant for long periods of time frequently have loose carpet when the new home owner or tenant moves in. This is because proper ventilation is unavailable and heat over 85 degrees will relax the carpet and create carpet wrinkles. No matter the cause, we can fix the carpet and power stretch it back into place for long lasting results.

This of course is a serious health hazard that can cause illness and hospitalization. But it will also cause extensive damage that can cause small repairs to extensive renovation and repairs. The cost of repairs will skyrocket the longer the water damage is left untreated. 

Our detailed step by step process ensures fully rectifying the water damage. We deploy our high powered extraction and industrial dry vacuum equipment to remove water from the flooring and carpet. We then use industrial fans to dry out the carpet and inspect walls, baseboards and any other affected areas to resolve wetness in areas that need to be dried out. 

Here a few tips that you can use to help mitigate the damage caused flooding:

  • Call Inland First Choice Carpet, Tile & Wood Cleaning, Repair & Installation ASAP

  • Locate and turn off the source of the flooding or water leak

  • Relocate furniture from flooded carpet, tile, and or hardwood flooring

  • Don’t touch appliances while standing on wet or damp carpet

Following these steps will keep with the water damage process before we arrive on site. 

Carpet to Tile Transition Threshold Repair

Berber Carpet Repair & Carpet Run

The carpet transition to hardwood flooring or tile, grout or stone can gain a gap over time or after installation if the installation is performed incorrectly. Carpet provides comfort and insulation so some carpet is kept while other main walking areas in homes and businesses are transitioned to tile, stone or wood flooring. What tends to happen is fraying, curing or torn thresholds and edges where the carpet meets the hard surface flooring. We can easily remedy this carpet repair for you. We offer different options for carpet to tile transition threshold repairs. We have transition strips that are manufactured in a variety of colors and styles. They can be made of wood, metal and rubber. This is a connection point and accent that brings the surfaces together. We also have the ability to add a tackstrip underneath to butt up against the hardsurface and keep the carpet from moving or showing a gap. This can provide a flush transition from the carpet to the hardwood surface or tile and grout or natural stone surface. For commercial floors, rubber reducers can be replaced when they wear out and the transition for the threshold hold can be restored. We make sure that all repairs are done convenience of our home owners and we work around the schedules of our commercial clients so that day to day operations are not affected.       

Berber carpet and Polypropylene carpet has become a popular choice of carpet over the last two decades. It is a stain resistant, durable and highly affordable carpet option. For people with kids and pets, it is one of the best options available. Berber is constructed as a loop pile using a single strand of carpet fiber instead of grouped tufts. Because of the single strand aspect, it does make it susceptible to damage. One snag from a sharp object can unravel Berber carpet. What then happens is the carpet will unravel which leaves a bald and bare area beneath where the carpet used to be. We can weave new carpet fibers in to repair the area if it is in a confined area. For badly damaged areas we remove the section and replace the area with a matching section. We work with blending the existing carpet to new carpet. We guarantee to fix the problem. Give us a call today so that we can repair your Berber carpet.​
