Carpets can stay fit and fine if cleaned from time to time but still they can lose their grip and fix that, carpets need to be stretched. Carpet stretching is as important as cleaning them because after stretching all the air bubbles and folds in the carpets. Wrinkles form over the carpets due to regular use and they increase with time.

The very first step in carpet stretching is moving all the things out of the room, otherwise, you might not be able to start stretching. If you don’t do this then you may end up damaging your carpets as with heavy stuff laying around in your room, the carpet will not be evenly stretched and it will not look good after you have finished your work. In short, it won't work if there’s heavy stuff like furniture laying over the carpet.
With all the stuff removed from the room, you should first clean the carpet, as usual, it becomes very tough to clean the carpet where bookshelves or cabinets are present. So take advantage of this opportunity and clean the carpet.
Now once the carpet is clean, go around the room and look for the side of the room where there are no or very few wrinkles on the carpet. After identifying it, except this part of the carpet and start tugging it. Carefully free the carpet from ply, to which it is nailed or stapled. Use a plier to have a better grip and rip the carpet off the floor.
Now once you have removed the carpet from the floor, the next thing to do is reattach the carpet to the ply and stretch the carpet to remove any folds and wrinkles from the carpet. For the stretching purpose, two methods can be adopted in homes. Both of these methods are stated below:
This method uses a mechanical power stretcher to stretch the carpet. It can be easily bought at any hardware store. It makes it very easy and fast to stretch carpets. You have to place one end of the stretcher at the edge of the room where the carpet is still attached to the ply and then on the opposite side of the room, work of stretching can be done easily. It helps in even stretching of carpet with minimum energy.
If you have to do the stretching of carpet in a small area then you should use this device as it is easy to use and can be used in small areas like a corner.
Once you have finished stretching, you will notice that there will be an excess carpet cloth at the edges. You have to cut it and remove it so that the carpet looks even and flawless. You can do this with a razor blade or a sharp knife. After cutting the overstretched piece of carpet clean the carpet and start using it again.
