The picture you’re seeing above is of the carpet in the door way to my bedroom in my apartment. The picture doesn’t show it very clearly but there is a long chunk of the carpet missing. I didn’t do this on purpose.
I was vacuuming in my apartment last week when I began to push the unit towards my bedroom. I heard something get caught and I noticed something weird going on near the carpet. I quickly stopped the vacuum and went to see what the hell had happened. When I looked closer, I saw that a huge, long thread from my carpet had came undone and had wrapped itself around the rotating brush underneath my vacuum. Where this thread had been was now a long gap in my carpet. I could now see down into whatever base was installed beneath the carpet.
Even though I was the first person to move into my apartment after it was built, I actually wasn’t the person who got to specify all the design options during construction. I actually have no idea what type of carpet this is. Is it Berber? Bieber? It seems to be woven which is why pulling on the thread caused it to do so much damage. If I had my choice, I wouldn’t have gotten this type of carpet. It feels rough on the feet and it’s not very thick. Plus, having it unravel like that sucks. If I had it my way, I would have either gotten the regular tufted carpet or hardwood floors.
Now how am I gonna fix this?
