Carpet Stretching

Is your carpet buckling? Do you wish you knew why your carpet looks like this?

There are three distinct reasons why your carpet is buckling right now. The most common cause is improper installation.

I am sorry to have to say this, but some people in the carpet installation business will take advantage of your lack of knowledge about the carpet installation process.

They use their insider knowledge to trick you into thinking that your carpet is installed correctly. This is a lie. In reality, your carpet is just waiting to fail.

After poor installation, most carpets will begin to buckle and ripple between six months to a year of foot traffic. By this time, the original carpet installer is long gone, and you are left holding the bag. This is not fair to you.

A failed tack strip is another common occurrence that will lead to carpet ripples and buckling. Tack strips become loose every now and again, mainly due to age or inadvertent damage.

We can quickly repair this problem by re-setting the tack strips and re-stretching your carpet.

The third reason is heat. This is more common with summer homes or homes that have been sitting on the real estate market for an extended period of time.

While heat is not a huge factor here in Northern Arizona, the temps can still get up there. The heat, when combined with a home that has been closed up for awhile creates conditions where a carpet will begin to “relax” and loosen. This is how the ripples and wrinkles occur.


How Does Northern Arizona Carpet Repair & Cleaning Fix Your Rippled Carpet?

Northern Arizona Carpet Repair & Cleaning only uses proven carpet repair methods and techniques approved by the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification (IICRC).

To repair your carpet, we use a technique called carpet stretching. This method is required by the IICRC for the proper installation of carpet.

Carpet stretching is achieved by using a power stretcher. This tool will stretch your carpet the way it should have been originally. The result is a carpet that looks brand new and will not ripple or buckle.
