Carpet Renovations New Broken Arrow Location

It all began with a dream, the owners of Carpet Renovations, Inc. Paul & Rose Dixon had considered for years a building of their own. At first the thought was to look for a house that had a large shop add-on but then changed to building an office/warehouse with one side to occupy and one side to lease. The young entrepreneurs applied for an SBA government loan and set out to pursue their dream. The complete process took the couple about a year and now Carpet Renovations, Inc. has a new home centrally located in the city of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma just off the corner of 91st Street & Aspen.

The couple had quite a challenge finding a small spot of land still available in the Broken Arrow area but as they persevered they soon located and purchased the perfect .6 acre lot just behind a few store fronts. The owner Ken Dobbins had seen an ad Paul had posted looking for a small piece of property in Broken Arrow to build on. It turns out Ken had been saving the lot for over 20 years with the thought he would build again but never did. The Dixon's then contacted The Boyd Group and had their dream put on paper and shortly after accepted by the City of Broken Arrow and the work began.

Paul & Rose found it to be a very pleasant and successful experience as they took on the role of General Contractor for their very first time. Paul stated they were so pleased to find that each of the contractors they had hired not only performed their work skillfully but with integrity and in a timely manner. He also said very few problems arose, which is uncommon in almost any building project. Even the City of Broken Arrow greeted them with open arms and was excited about the project coming to their community and Jim, the Broken Arrow Building Inspector, was an absolute joy to work with.

The new Broken Arrow Carpet Renovations Building is a 4200 sq. ft Lucas Metal Building with two large overhead garage doors going to the warehouse sections, two tiled front offices and bathrooms, and is climate controlled both in the office and warehouse areas. The building parking consists of a concrete parking lot with 8 parking spaces and 1 handicap parking. It is nicely landscaped with rock and evergreen trees and has a fully enclosed 16x16 ft. fenced area containing an 8 cubic ft. dumpster. The project was completed and approved for occupancy on June 25th, 2014.

Carpet Renovations main services are: Carpet Cleaning & Repair, Tile and Grout Cleaning, Air Duct Cleaning, & Water Damage Restoration. Other services provided include: Mattress and Upholstery Cleaning, Dryer Vent Cleaning, Allergy Relief Treatments, Pet Damage Restoration, and Odor Control

Carpet Repair in Tulsa: What can be repaired and when to replace

Carpet Repair in Tulsa: What can be repaired & when to replace

 

 All types of accidents can happen to a home’s flooring such as wrinkled carpet, pet damage, spilled bleach, burns, tears and more. This article will answer the most common questions on when a carpet can be repaired or if it is best to replace.

The following are common repairs that can be easily performed by a certified carpet repair technician and save you the high cost of replacement:

 

1. Loose & wrinkled carpet is the most requested carpet repair we receive in our Tulsa office. The reason most carpet becomes wrinkled over time is from poor & improper installation. Thanks to new carpet installation guidelines carpet is now installed using a power stretching tool, although in recent, this type of installation was not a requirement. This type of carpet repair can be easily remedied by a reputable carpet repair or installation technician. Be sure to request the re-stretching to be done using a power stretching tool and not a knee-kicker.

2. Torn carpet, definitely #2 on the list of carpet repair requested. Carpet torn by a family dog trapped in a bedroom and trying to get out or the cat finding a string to play with can result in a torn carpet. This type of repair can be performed by a qualified carpet repair technician by squaring off the outside edges of the tear and seaming in a matching piece of carpet. If there is no matching carpet available a small piece can be taken from a closet. When having this type of repair done the expertise of the technician will determine what kind of results you will get. If the technician is good at what he does you will have a hard time finding the area once repaired.

3. Burns such as a fallen clothes iron, a cigarette burn, or a smoking ember sparking its way out of the fireplace are all candidates for a carpet repair. This type of repair is performed the same way as a torn carpet, using a matching piece to replace the burnt area with. Anything under the size of a credit card will be hard to detect. If the area is larger you may be able to see the carpet seam somewhat but you can be assured it will always look better than a burn or hole in the middle of your living room floor.

4. Wax can be removed from carpet by chipping off the largest amount then removing the remaining wax carefully using a paper towel and clothes iron set on low. Again, you will get the best results from a qualified carpet repair technician. If this does not remedy the problem then the technician can patch in the area similar to the way a torn or burnt carpet is repaired.

5. Red Kool-Aid Stains are easily removed by a repair expert familiar with the "heat transfer" process. This type of a method is great for Kool-Aid, wine, sports drinks, coffee, and stubborn pet stains. A commercially formulated emulsifier is used to lift this type of stain from the carpet utilizing a white terry cloth towel and a clothes iron. If the stain does not respond it can be "patched" in by the technician.

6. Pet Urine that has penetrated into the carpet fibers and down to the carpet pad if contained in a small area can be restored by removing the contaminated carpet pad, installing new carpet pad and tack strip and treating the subflooring, backing, and baseboards with a sanitizer. You will want to have the carpet cleaned & sanitized as well. This process is known as pet damage restoration and works well for confined areas but does not justify cost if needed throughout much of the home.

7. Water damaged carpet can be repaired similar to the steps in #6 above. It would be a good choice to hire a certified water damage restoration company that is knowledgeable in carpet restoration and drying procedures. It is very important to remove the damaged pad as soon as possible, clean the carpet and force dry with a carpet blower or fan. If left unattended the carpet pad will begin to mildew and before long a mold problem will require further restoration or even replacement. A knowledgeable carpet repair technician will be able to determine the correct thickness and density of the pad and match it, saving you from replacing the whole room with new pad and cutting your restoration cost.

When should you replace?

1. Large areas of pet contaminated carpet should not be restored. Carpet pad is like a sponge and traps pet urine. If the pet urine has gone down deep into the pad, has heavily saturated the carpets backing, and it is not contained in a small area such as a dining room or corner of a room, then it is time to replace. Professional pet damage restoration for a whole house situation would be quite costly and would not justify cost. Remember pet urine crystalizes and turns into a gas which is why you detect it and over a period of time can cause respiratory and other health issues.

2. Worn traffic areas are not restorable. Carpet that has been "flattened" down in the main walk areas is permanent. These areas can be raised using a nap lifter during the cleaning process and maintained with a carpet rake but once a carpet has been worn in traffic areas it can be quite difficult keeping it "fluffed up" again.

3. Molded carpet should be replaced. Once there are visible signs of dark mold in carpet it is best to replace. There are products that can remove mold spores but it can be a big problem for those suffering from allergens and respiratory diseases. Also it should be noted that a carpet manufacturer’s warranty is voided once a carpet has been damaged by water.

4. Sewage overflows warrants for carpet replacement. "Gray or Black" water damage is how a restoration company classifies a water damage loss. It is always a good idea to replace carpet if there has been a sewage back up resulting in damage to your carpet. Much like the decision to replace molded carpet, an individual who suffers from allergens or has a respiratory disease will have a very difficult time with this type of bacteria in the home.

Concluding this article on types of carpet repair and when to replace, you will find most misfortunate accidents that occur to your carpet can be easily repaired.
