I have a 4-season sun-room addition over a crawl space.
The 12 X 20 room was built 9 years ago, and at the time I had the
floor carpeted with what I thought was good padding.
This winter the rug is showing a problem. Seems that the rug is
developing ripples some few feet long. There are some three or four
at different places. When I walk on the ripples in stocking feet, I
can feel what appear to be the padding bunching up underneath.
Is the padding simply deteriorating? If so, why? Dampness? Coldness?
I have to wonder why this is happening now, since the rug has been
down for so many years. I thought maybe the cold air in the
underneath crawlspace was the culprit. Didn't show this before
I figure I am going to have to pull up the carpet and replace the
padding. This will be difficult work for this senior-senior citizen.
Whatever is wrong, though, could do the same thing with new padding.
Someone out there have some ideas on the subject?
