Just as carpet manufacturers specify the appropriate padding type for individual carpet types so they also specify appropriate carpet stretching methods and amounts. Whats right for some types may not be appropriate for others. For example tufted carpet with a jute fiber backing needs to be a bit tighter than tufted fiber with a synthetic fiber backing. And some woven carpets will stretch in one direction but not the other. Consult manufacturer instructions or a carpet repair specialist so you have all the facts before you get started. After all knowing what youre working with is just as important as knowing what youre doing.
