Carpet Wrinkles ~ Why & What to Do

Real Estate Agent with The Platinum Group Realtors

In the world of real estate, carpet is something that most home owners have in one way or another.   Having carpet installed or cleaned is something that most of us do at some point in home ownership.  The past two years it seems as though there was more stretched carpet (wrinkles) in homes for sale than in the past.  There are multiple opinions as to what causes carpet to wrinkle including bad installation and/or cleaning.   There is another theory that carpet is not as good as it use to be.  Newer carpets, when cleaned, start to stretch sooner than older carpets do. 

In this post the theories are not dissected as much as options for what you can do to avoid or fix carpet wrinkles in your house.  It may not be replacing an entire room or house. 

Just in case you have carpet that has stretched, or in another word, wrinkled, be assured you are not alone.   Find out more about carpet stretching and what to know.

Three great recommendations for carpet issues are: 

  • Have carpet fixes repaired before you get your carpet cleaned and
  • Get recommendations from friends and/or professionals you respect before hiring a company
  • Get a firm bid before hiring anyone

Kelly, Great advice. I might add that it is always good to have a couple of bids to make certain that whoever you hire is competitive. Thanks for sharing.
