Pile crushing will cause the carpet to look ugly and to start to sag or stretch. Pile crushing is caused when the crushed carpet is walked on all the time and in the same spot or area. So lets say from the kitchen to the sofa is a high traffic area. This is where you will see pile crushing. Hallways are another good example of were crushed pile will show up. A good carpet padding or under lay will help decrease the amount of pile crushing by allowing the carpet to maintain its pile height so it will stay looking newer longer. It has been proven that under lay will increase the useful life of a carpet by as much as 50%.
The last major issue with corridor carpets that is often seen is when wall to wall carpet is replaced by new carpet tiles. Carpet tiles are installed with a pressure sensitive adhesive. This adhesive must be applied to a clean concrete surface free of all contaminants including adhesive from previous carpet installations. If pressure sensitive adhesive is applied over the old carpet adhesive then it mixes in with it moisture is trapped and as the moisture eventually tries to escape around the edges of the carpet tiles and lift or the new adhesive emulsifies. Again this issue is usually blamed on the manufacturer and the carpet supplier will often try and gluedown the lifting edges using adhesive that they should not be using in attempt to keep the lifting edges down on the concrete.
