Is your carpet wrinkled and loose like the one pictured above? Your carpet will take a beating but that does not mean it should look like this. When it does, it’s usually caused by one of three factors:
- Carpet has endured temperature extremes you may have a house closed up for the summer and when you go out to check on it the carpet is wrinkled and loose. Extreme temperature change could affect your carpet.
- Improper stretching at time of installation The right tools and training are what is needed to do the job right. Ideally a carpet should be stretched with knee kicks as well as a power stretcher
- Poor carpet padding There is a difference in the quality of padding. Low quality padding will wear out quicker and will compress and lose it’s thickness. This pad will no longer support or cushion the carpet. It likely needs to be replaced, but it can also cause the unsightly carpet ripples.
