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 ten or more years. When carpet begins to buckle and wrinkle before it wears out, you know the installation has failed. The main causes of rippling carpet include:

  • Shoddy workmanship
  • Heavy use & traffic wear
  • Tack strip failure
  • Severe water damage
  • Inadequate stretching during installation
  • Cleaning that leaves carpet water-logged
  • Sliding heavy objects like furniture over the carpet
  • Wear from power wheelchairs & children’s toys
  • Padding that’s incompatible with carpet type

Certified Carpet Re-stretching

As IICRC-certified carpet technicians, Carpet Chemist team members are 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 correct tautness before re-anchoring the carpet. We also specialize in replacing damaged strips, trimming excess carpet and securing seams. Count on Carpet Chemist for these proven carpet solutions:

Carpet Fastening

If you’ve experienced a water damage emergency, your insurance company probably recommended a disaster company come out to your home to suck up the water from your carpet and maybe tear out some padding and cut a bunch of seams on the doorways. They left some drying equipment and came back a few days later to pick it up, and that’s it! Seriously? What are you supposed to do now? Don’t worry. We’ve got you covered.reattach carpet to tack strip

What’s next?

Your carpet padding has been torn out, you’ve got carpet that’s been sliced, diced and is loose and wrinkly and you’re just ready to get it all put back to normal. The Carpet Chemist understands your time is important. We can install your brand new padding, reattach carpet to tack strips, seam any tears or rips that may have been made during the drying process, re-stretch the carpet, and clean and sanitize it in a few hours, not days. Sometimes padding doesn’t need to be pulled and you just need us to reattach carpet to tack strips. No problem!

Our lifetime labor guarantee

Once we reattach carpet to tack strip, clean and sanitize your carpet and anything else involving post water damage restoration, you have our unconditional lifetime labor guarantee on both seam repairs and stretching. If we install tack strips or new threshold pieces, you have our lifetime labor guarantee on that as well. We’re MAD about carpets!
