Why Does My New Carpet Appear to Be Shedding?
Shedding or piling is very normal for new carpeting, especially those made with staple carpet fibers (as opposed to bulked continuous filament (BCF) fibers). When yarn is sheared at a factory, pieces fall into the pile of carpets. These pieces become loose after installation. Most shedding will stop in a short time with regular vacuuming. Some carpets take longer than others, and the duration of shredding is determined by the way the carpet was manufactured.
