Carpet Shrinkage and How to Combat It

Ripples, Wrinkles, and Buckling in your carpet gives it an unappealing look and makes it dangerous to walk across, often causing falls, accidents and spills for people walking in your home. There can be numerous causes of these unsightly carpet waves, but one of the primary causes is sloppy wet steam cleaning. Carpet fibers are held together by latex glue and when they are heated by steam the glue can melt and cause fibers to fall out or carpet to roll. The heat can also cause shrinkage, especially if the carpet or rugs are a wool blend.

Carpets shrink for many reasons. For example, the carpet manufacturer used low-quality material or the carpet installation was poor labor by using improper protocol. Also, uncontrollable external factors like humidity and flooding can damage the life of the carpet and cause it to ventilate improperly and shrink. But the most common reason why carpets shrink is improper cleaning. Whether the equipment was weak or poor technique, mishandling in cleaning can cause stress on the overall structure of the carpet resulting in the fibers of the carpet material to swell, expand or shrink.
