Carpet Stretching and Repairs Throughout SW Florida

Are you experiencing bumps and ripples in your carpet that seem to have come out of nowhere?

We’re often asked, why is this happening, and the simple answer is, many factors can cause these issues.

In almost 90% of all issues, we’re asked to rectify, a poor installation by your carpet installer is to blame. Some carpet installation businesses cut corners at your expense and do a poor job tacking down or stretching the carpeting during installation.  Ripples, seal separation and bumps will rear their ugly head two or three years after installation, long after the carpet installer is gone.

If a poor installation wasn’t the cause, a failed tack strip is also something to consider. This is a relatively common occurrence that can be remedied by replacing the damaged tack-strip with a new one and re-stretching your carpet.

While these are the most common reasons why your carpet currently has bumps and ripples, another reason that many people do not think about is the damage caused by heat.

Did you know that temperatures over 85 degrees can damage carpet? The heat inside the home ends up “relaxing” the carpet, thus creating the ripples and wrinkles.

We typically see this type of damage when homes are put up for sale and sit on the market for a long time or the property is owned by a snowbird, and they have set the AC unit too high, or in some cases, off, to save money.
