Any recommendations for a Carpet Repairer in Canberra?

By farout - 30 May 2013 7

Due to an unfortunate mishap with a hot iron in a carpeted room, I have a carpet in need of a cut-and-paste repair job by a carpet layer.

It is in a prominent location so I need an experienced and reliable person to do a good job of it. Any recommendations?

What’s Your opinion?

Sorry, I can’t recommend anyone either. I have carpet that bubbles up here and there in the humid weather – it’s old and synthetic. I thought restretching it could help. After lots of phone calls I eventually got someone to come out and look at it but they wouldn’t do anything – they said ‘It will just go slack again and you wouldn’t be happy with the job.’

Maybe so, but I got he feeling everyone in carpets wants to replace rather than repair – that’s where the money is I guess.

your carpet sounds like it’s been stretched out of shape, they can shrink it back to fit. Keep stretching it and the carpet will tear then the repairer is up for new carpet. That’s why they say replace it.

did they ever come down? I’ve been interested in them doing something about the beautiful, plush, pure wool but idiotically cream carpet the last owner put down… Contacted them a few times; never came to anything…

Would love it if they were able to do something.

They did call me back to say they were going to be in Canberra and could do the job then but I changed my mind. Sorry, that’s all I can tell you about their service.

No idea on carpet repairs, but I did once called Revive Carpet Dyeing to enquire about dyeing some stains on mine. They are located in Sydney but someone comes out to Canberra every so often when they get enough jobs to fill a day.
