When you do have your carpet stretched make sure they are using a power stretcher. Pulling the carpet from one wall to the other with poles. After the carpet is stretched , if it is done right the carpet will not wrinkle after getting your carpet cleaned. Where the wrinkles were the carpet will have dirty and worn areas where the bumps were from people dragging their feet over the bumps. Then the carpet cleaner will try to make it look even again, this is why you should get the carpets stretched first.
