There are many projects around the home that you are more than capable of completing yourself especially with the right tools, equipment and easy to read instructions. DIY can save you a ton of money. But is carpet repair one of those projects? It seems simple enough to rent the tools you need to do it on your own, but is it really worth it?
The experts at Carpet Care 2000 have provided the following information to help you make an informed decision regarding the true cost of repairing your carpets vs hiring the professionals at Carpet Care 2000 to do the job for you.
The Cost of Carpet Repair Tools & Kits
Just like most things in life, the price of tools to successfully repair your carpets can vary, and the old adage “you get what you pay for” is certainly true when it comes to repairing your carpeting. At the very least you will need a power stretcher and a toolbox that is equipped with a glue gun, a straight edged knife and other tools. When you consider the cost of purchasing or renting equipment, you might end up spending more than it would cost to hire a professional carpet repair company.
Time to Complete Carpet Repairs
Another consideration is the amount of time it will take you to complete your carpet repairs. If you can rent the equipment and get everything completed in one day it may be worth your while but if you hire the professional services of a reputable Company, like Carpet Care 2000, your repairs can be professionally completed in a few hours. Your skill level and how quickly you can complete the repairs will determine the amount of money you will actually be saving. You may have heard the phrase “Time is money!” and this is certainly true when it comes to DIY carpet repairs vs. the professionals. If your carpet repair takes you more than a day to complete it is definitely in your best interest to hire a professional who can have the repairs completed in a minimum amount of time.
How Difficult is it to Repair Carpet?
The answer to this question is a complex one. Repairing you carpet will depend on your skill level and construction experience combined with the level of repair that needs to be done to your carpet. For simple repairs you can DIY but keep in mind that there are often a variety of unknown factors that may not be immediately noticeable until you attempt your repair and reach a point of no return. Plus there is a concern that you may end up causing more damage to the section on your carpet that you were trying to repair in the first place. Professional carpet cleaners, like the experts at Carpet Care 2000 understand carpets and are trained in repairs including natural and synthetic fibers as well as one-of-a-kind handmade heirlooms and obtain perfect results every time with their level of skill and expertise.
