Why Do Ripples In My Carpet Appear?
Many people want to know why ripples form in the first place, and they are due to a couple potential factors. One of the most common culprits at the root of ripples is humidity and moisture. If you live in a humid climate, the area that your carpet is in experienced flooding, or the area the carpet is in is located near humid areas, i.e. bathrooms, laundry rooms, this can cause buckles to form. Another common reason for rippled carpet is due to the moving of heavy furniture items across the surface. And finally, carpet ripples are often a result of poor installation from the start. If your carpet was not attached tightly to the wall, it will loosen, and the excess fabric will create wrinkles.
Can a Burn Be Repaired?
Absolutely! Many times, we are called in to repair blemishes like those caused by burns or bleach stains. What we do is remove that one blemished piece of carpet instead of the entire carpet. We then replace it with a new piece of carpet referred to as a donor piece. To achieve a seamless look, it is best to take this donor piece from any excess carpet you have in the attic stored away or from an inconspicuous place like a closet.
