What Causes Carpet Wrinkles

What Causes Carpet Wrinkles

Whether you have had your home for many years, or you just bought it, wrinkles can happen at any moment in your carpet’s lifespan. Carpet Stretch and Rescue has worked on several different homes to stretch the wrinkles out room by room. It would be great if they never showed up to begin with. We want to help you understand why wrinkles happen in the first place and what you can do about it when it happens.


The main reason why wrinkles happen especially if you have relatively new carpet, is because it was poorly installed. This will cause wrinkles quicker than anything else. Another reason why wrinkles will appear is due to changing humidity. The up and down humidity levels can cause your carpet to shrink and expand. Over time, wrinkles will start to develop. Regardless of how they develop, it's never a good thing to one day have your carpet seemingly out to get you, causing a tripping hazard.

What Can You Do?

Carpet Stretch and Rescue uses an effective tool called a Power Stretcher. This tool should have been used on the original installation, however if you have wrinkles there is a good chance it wasn’t, or if it was, it likely wasn’t done properly. A power stretcher allows us to get a better, more effective stretch that meets the carpet industry standards for stretched in carpet. Therefore, you won’t have to worry about it wrinkling again when you allow us to stretch it this way.
