There are several reasons a large bump or bubble might appear in the middle of wall-to-wall carpet in your home. The presence of a bump in your carpet is called carpet bubbling. This occurs for the following reasons:
The most common reason for carpet bubbling is improper installation of the carpet. You need to hire a professional with years of experience and the proper equipment for installing carpet. If a carpet is not stretch and installed correct, it can lead to bubbling in the middle almost immediately. We don’t recommend DIY installation for this reason.
Another reason bubbling occurs is because of the quality of the carpet pad. You should invest in a high-quality pad for your carpet. The additional cost is worth it as the quality of the pad will help extend the lifetime of the carpet.
The carpet will bubble simply because it is old too. Most carpet only lasts about 10-15 years. If your carpet is over 10 years old, you will start to notice signs of deterioration and one sign is carpet bubbling. If this is the case, then it is time to think about purchasing new carpet for your home.
You will also see carpet bubbles after carpet is wet for too long. You want your carpet to be dry as often as possible. Sometimes carpet gets very wet from water damage, plumbing leaks and damaged roofs or window sealing. Sometimes carpet gets very wet from cheap carpet cleaning or steam cleaning.
The local carpet cleaning companies in Valencia that advertise cheap cleaning or steam cleaning use a lot of water in their process. All of the water saturates the carpet and sometimes the pad too. The problem is that often these companies are not able to extract all of the water from the carpet and the carpet is too wet for too long. This can lead to carpet bubbling.
