If you have wrinkles in your carpet then it is time to stretch your carpet. This can be caused by poor installation, heavy traffic, your carpet just ageing and from your carpet getting wet. When you first notice wrinkles in your carpet you should get your carpet stretched. Delaying the carpet stretching job can lead to permanent damage. If it stays to long the carpet may not ever lay flat again.
The second reason to stretch your carpet right away is because over time as people step on the carpet wrinkle it will start to crack and then rip. Lastly it can be a health issue especially for the elderly. I my self have fallen from getting my foot caught. When the carpet snags your foot it is easy to loose balance and those who are older are more susceptible to this.
A simple way to know if it’s time to stretch is go to the center of the room and grab the carpet. Try to lift it up and then let go. If the carpet does not snap right back into place then you need to have your carpet re-stretched. It is important to do because it is an eye soar but also will actually decrease the life of the carpet.
