Berber carpets are susceptible to snags, which in turn can unravel or run. This can be successfully repaired in most every situation.
Waves and bumps in carpets can be a tripping hazard. Stretching these areas not only removes the danger, but also enhances your home esthetics.
This is only a partial list as to why carpet ripples, as it is not an exact science. No matter what the cause, at Carpet Corrections we can repair your carpet properly.
The preferred method is to lift the carpet and under pad. In some cases seams have to be opened, and furniture moved, to access the location of the joists. Where this is not possible, there is another technique that we can use.
In doing these repairs we use flooring screws, not drywall screws or nails.
A power stretcher is a tool used to stretch carpet during installations and carpet ripple repairs. Simply stated the large arm is pressed down which in turn extends the head away from the power stretching body. The head of the power stretcher has teeth that grip the carpet and transfers the stretching force.
In the picture you can see the silver stretching tubes, these are set up behind the stretcher to push off of the opposing wall to anchor the power stretcher. Depending on what type of substrate is underneath the carpet (usually wood or concrete) different attachments can be used. On concrete, power stretching tubes are basically your only choice and require moving the furniture in order to get straight lines from one end of the room to the other. However, over wood sub-floors, there is another attachment that can be used (without poles) which minimizes the space needed, and therefore requiring less moving of furniture.
There are other power stretching tools being used and manufactured, but this is by far the most common and effective.
