Getting rid of these unsightly wrinkles and bumps in your carpet is what we do best!

Why Does My Carpet Look Like This?

This is a question that we get all the time. Your carpet endures a lot, but that does not mean it should get loose—appearing to have ripples and waves. When it does, it’s usually caused by one of three factors:

  • Carpet has endured temperature extremes – Ever go away during the summer and leave your home closed up with the AC turned off? If your house heats up inside, the extreme temperature change could affect your carpet. Over time, it could “relax” and look rippled or wrinkled.
  • Improper stretching at time of installation – When carpet is installed in your home, office, or commercial building the installers should be using knee kickers as well as a power stretcher to ensure the carpet is pulled tight from wall to wall on the tack strips. In too many cases lazy installers only use knee kickers. Short-term the carpet appears well stretched and smooth, but is not as tight as it should be according to industry standards. Virginia Carpet Cleaning and Repair technicians use both knee kickers and power stretchers every time we stretch a carpet!

Why Do We Use A Power Stretcher?

We use a power stretcher because this allows us to properly stretch your carpet. It uses leverage and stretches carpet from one wall to the opposite wall. This usually requires that rooms be empty of furniture.

A properly stretched carpet should be “drum-tight” without excessive slack. A carpet that is drum tight will not develop wrinkles or ripples over time. We stand behind our work with a 5 year labor guarantee.
