    Hi Brenda, here are some ideas for getting your carpet smooth. If you had it installed I would call the company that put it down. Sorry you are having problems. Good luck How can I straighten my wrinkled carpet?

    To fix a wrinkle, you can rent a carpet stretcher and a knee-kicker for around 40 bucks and adjust its tooth depth to the depth of the pile of your carpet. Pull the carpet up from the tack strip at the baseboard, then sink the teeth of the power stretcher into the carpet where you need to pull it taut.

    Hi Brenda. I've found a carpet steamer does the trick.

    Is this an area rug or wall to wall carpet? If it is wall to wall carpet and it's new, you need to call the company back out to fix that. There should be no rolls in new wall to wall carpeting. If it is an area rug, it should only take a few days and you will see the roll creases at the edges will go away in no time. good luck!
