Nip & Tuck Carpet Repair has saved customers thousands of dollars by re-stretching their carpet and adding many years to its lifespan. Unsightly carpet wrinkles cause great frustration to home owners. Some have had their carpet re-stretched on several occasions and the wrinkles continue to return. Is that normal? Why do these wrinkles form in the first place?
Causes of Carpet Wrinkles
When carpet is not properly stretched during the initial installation, it is left vulnerable to forming ripples over time. If carpet isn’t pull tight enough, humidity and temperature fluctuations cause it to expand and contract, eventually resulting in a wavy sea of wrinkles. What tools and methods are some installers using that don’t pull the carpet tight enough? How does Nip & Tuck Carpet Repair stretch the carpet adequately?
Knee Kicker: Knee kickers are occasionally needed for setting or guiding the carpet into place. Problems arise when installers or carpet repair technicians use it as their main tool. Although quick, rushing an installation or repair with a knee kicker can likely result in future wrinkles. Since taking short cuts with a knee kicker will not pull the carpet as taut as it needs to be, high traffic areas are especially susceptible to forming wrinkles over time.
Power Stretcher: A power stretcher is the primary tool used by Nip & Tuck Carpet Repair. This powerful tool uses leverage, comparable to using a wrench on a nut, to tighten the carpet. When a power stretcher is used properly, the carpet will rarely need to be re-stretched at any future time, and will typically remain tight the entire lifetime of the carpet.
There are occasional situations where wrinkles may not be avoided such as:
