Well, shit. Think we’ve broken the carpet

We just cleaned it with a vax and it looks a lot better but I guess it’s stretched (?) and our living room has 7 little hills sad

It’s still damp, might it tighten up as it dries? Has this happened to anyone else??

It should shrink back. We had carpets cleaned in one house and there were bumps everywhere but they disappeared afterwards. We've had other carpets cleaned that it never happened to though.

Thanks! I really hope so

I’ve heard of wool carpets shrinking, so we were careful not to use too-hot water. I’ve never heard of this!

Not with a carpet as such, but it happened with a rug we once had.

As the PP said, once it's dried, it should go back to normal.

Sorry, no advice but I do love the title of your thread grin

grin Tink It’s looking a bit better, so I’m sure it’ll be hilarious tomorrow!

Im glad to hear its looking a bit normal now! Hopefully the hills will be all gone in a couple of days, especially if its warm weather smile

All fine! But that was a scare, we just might not use that room til the kids leave home 😬

Think that sounds like a plan! Glad to hear its all ok now, it would have given me a scare too and I woulda thought I had broken the carpet as well grin
