When it comes to carpet stretching, the most important thing, hands down, is that a power stretcher must be used, and used properly. It is necessary to move all furniture inside a room, and disengage all four walls, if possible, and then re-install the room using the power stretcher. No, a knee-kicker is not a carpet stretching tool. What's more, a power stretcher should be used to stretch as much carpet as possible in both directions. This will ensure that your carpet will stay tight as long as possible. If a carpet is stretched in properly, and supported by the proper padding, it will stay tight for many years. Even if it was installed improperly, the proper level of tightness can often times still be achieved with careful re-stretching.
