Carpet Stretching

Wall-to-wall carpet can loosen over time in well-worn rooms or apartment homes in a community. If this carpet is still in good condition, it can be fixed by using special tools to stretch the carpet.

The most used stretching tool is called a knee-kicker. It is a simple, rod-like device that has a gripping surface at one end that sinks into the carpet and a padded bumper at the other end.

To use, get a grip on the carpet with the front end and bump the pad with a knee at the back end. Don't use this tool if you have physical problems with your knees. Even if your knees are fine, don't bump the pad too hard—it might cause an injury and could also tear the carpet if it is deteriorated.
