What Causes Buckled Carpets?

Wall-to-wall carpeting is designed to be stretched and securely anchored to tack strips along the walls of your home, which keeps it taut and straight. With proper maintenance and care, a carpet installation should last 10 or more years. But when carpet begins to buckle and wrinkle before it wears out, you know the installation has failed. The main causes of rippling carpet include:

  • Poor installation work
  • Heavy use and traffic wear
  • Tack strip failure
  • Severe water damage
  • Inadequate stretching during installation
  • Cleaning that leaves carpet waterlogged
  • Sliding heavy objects such as furniture over the carpet
  • Wear from power wheelchairs and children’s toys
  • Padding that’s incompatible with the carpet type

Carpet Stretching Done Right

Certified Carpet Re-Stretching

As Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC)-certified carpet technicians, we’re experts in the care, repair and restoration of wall-to-wall carpets and area rugs. When loose and wavy carpets are a major problem, we disengage the carpet from the tack strips and use a power-stretching tool to achieve the correct tautness before reanchoring the carpet. We also specialize in replacing damaged strips, trimming excess carpet and securing seams. In addition to our carpet stretching services, count on The Carpet Chemist for these proven carpet solutions:

Water Damage, Now What?

If you’ve experienced water damage in your home or business, your insurance company probably recommended a company come out to your home to suck up the water from your carpet, tear out some padding and cut a bunch of seams on the doorways. They brought in some drying equipment, let it run for a few days and then came back to pick it up. Hardly any effort was made to restore your carpet and now you’re left high and dry. When you find yourself in a bind like this, The Carpet Chemist has you covered.

We understand that water damage is incredibly frustrating and that your time is important. That’s why we’ll restore your carpet in a matter of hours, not days. We can install your brand new padding, reattach the carpet to tack strips, seam any tears or rips that may have been made during the drying process, re-stretch the carpet using our carpet stretcher and then clean and sanitize it. Sometimes the padding doesn’t need to be pulled and you’ll just need us to reattach the carpet to tack strips. Whatever the situation entails, we work with speed and efficiency to get your space back to normal as quickly as possible.

Our Lifetime Labor Guarantee

Once we do everything it takes to reverse the water damage and fully restore your carpet, we’ll leave you with our unconditional lifetime labor guarantee on both our seam repairs and carpet stretching services. If we install tack strips or new threshold pieces, you have our lifetime labor guarantee on that as well. You have our word!

The Carpet Chemist will re-stretch and reattach carpet to tack strips in hours, not days—guaranteed!
