What can cause the carpet to shift and loosen up? The carpet won’t usually move and start to bunch up just by day to day living. It has been glued and nailed to the floor and will take more than walking around to get it to move. One way that the carpet can shift is when large pieces of furniture is moved around a lot. Maybe you have re-arranged your room again. Maybe the families that lived before you have moved their stuff in and out often. This can cause the carpet to lift and shift over which is usually when you find these ripples of loose carpet.
