Help! Can we stretch the carpet? I just returned to my Florida home for the winter season and all my wall to wall carpets are buckling. What causes this to happen?
Yes, you can have a professional carpet installer stretch your carpet. The cost depends upon the size of your rooms and and the amount of furniture that will need to be moved.
During those hot, sticky summer months when you are away from your Florida home, lack of air conditioning can cause your carpet to expand. Since the carpet is already wall to wall, it has no where to go but to buckle in the middle.
Setting your thermostat to 78 degrees generally helps but only if your humidistat is set to the proper temperature too. Otherwise your home can reach 90 degrees or more.
