Carpet repair Austin would like to explain more about carpet repair. Carpet repair is a mix of many different techniques that will save your carpet from needing replacement. Carpet patching and stretching are the most common. Carpet patching is when you remove a piece of damaged carpet very carefully, and replace it with a new piece that is generally taken from a closet. Carpet stretching is a technique that is used when the carpet has become wrinkled. Power stretchers are used to stretch the carpet across the length of the room.  The last method of carpet repair is restorative cleaning.
