Some companies use a Knee kicker to install carpet. The kicker is meant to position the carpet, not stretch the carpet. A power stretcher will get your carpet closer to factory specs. When a carpet is stretched, in most cases the whole room needs to be stretched. If we try to stretch just the middle of the room, the bump will just move to either side of where it was.
Q. Do I need to empty the room?
A. It is best, but many times we can work with the furniture. There is an additional cost if we do have to empty the room or rooms of furniture. No matter which way it is done, you are responsible for removing all breakables and electronic type equipment.
Q. Do you have wrinkles in your carpet?
A. If the answer is yes, then you probably need to have your carpet re-stretched. To test this out, go to the middle of your room and grab a tuft of carpet. Lift the carpet up and let it go. If it lifts more than an inch or so, then it is too loose. After a few years, the backing of your carpet begins to stretch out and your carpeting will no longer have the correct tension on it. Loose carpet wears out quicker, is unattractive and unsafe. If your carpeting is less than 1 years old, you should check your warranty. Most carpet comes with a 1 year labor warranty which will cover re-stretching. If you are past the warranty period, then unfortunately you bear the cost.
Q. How are the carpet wrinkles corrected?
A. A-1 Carpet Service can easily repair this. Special techniques are used to ensure a good final result. We will detach the carpet from the tack strip and re-stretch it from wall to wall. We usually have to cut off several inches of the carpeting since it has physically stretched out. We may also have to redo seams at doorways and closets. It can be quite a task, almost as labor intensive as the original carpet install, but it is well worth it. A properly stretched carpet will last longer, look better and be safer to walk on without the wrinkles and bumps
