If you choose steam cleaning than always try to go for a professional cleaning company. Doing this activity by yourself will not work properly and the rest is carpet damage. Flooding is another scenario in which way you can remove the carpet from its place and allow it to dry properly before placing it back.

Incorrect padding of carpets

It’s too vital to put your carpet on proper padding where it adjusts and sticks to the ground properly. If it is not too dense and stiff to allow adjustment of the carpet properly then it’s worthless. Your carpets didn’t adjust properly and it can move freely and this movement results in looseness and wrinkles.

Inappropriate carpet installation

Temperature changes affect everything either living or nonliving. Keep your carpets at the same temperature at which it is stored during purchasing. If the temperature of your home is more than allowing the settlement time before installation. Temperature changes may result in the looseness of carpet or wrinkles on its surface.

The second important thing is don’t drag furniture on the carpet. Always lift it up and then move it to another location. Dragging of heavy items on the carpet damages its fibre and there are chances of tearing.

Manufacturing defects

There is a saying that “quality matters quantity didn’t”. The same is the case with carpets, a good quality carpet carries a long life. Sometimes you purchase a low-quality product by paying less amount and the results are painful.

Carpets have two layers on upper layers, fibre is attached and one layer is beneath it, which binds both of them. In poor quality carpets, these layers get separate and the upper layer moves freely and results in waves and loosening of the carpet. If this happens with you contact your manufacturer and replace your carpet on the claim.
