How We Fix Ugly Bumps, Wrinkles, and Ripples
Are you bothered by a carpet with unsightly and dangerous bumps, creases, or ripples? Carpets seem to have a life of their own. One day they are fresh and new and then a year or so later they have seem loose and lifeless. What happened? Is that normal in the life of your carpet?
“There are three main reasons carpet can become loose and develop ripples:
First, is poor installation. Correct carpet installation involves power stretching of a carpet, pulling it drum-tight from wall to wall. Phoenix carpet stretching uses a power stretcher to do this. Most carpet installers rely solely on knee kickers. But knee kickers alone are not designed to stretch the carpet, only to set the carpet on the tack strip. So the carpet appears to be well-stretched. But as you walk across it, play on it, move furniture around and otherwise LIVE on it, your once beautiful carpet quickly gets rippled and looks loose.

“Tack-strips can occasionally come loose, which is the second reason carpet can loosen and ripple. We can re-set the tack strips and re-stretch the carpet.
“The third reason for carpet ripples is owner error and this is a common mistake: vacationers and ‘snowbirds’—do you leave your home for an extended vacation or for the season with the A/C turned off? In the heat of an Arizona summer, this is a death sentence for your wall-to-wall carpet! The heat builds up inside your home, ‘relaxing’ your carpet, making it wrinkle and ripple. We recommend leaving you’re A/C set at 85 or lower.”
