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.
