Confused about carpet
I was under the impression that my carpet had been previous-owner-installed, because the house is thirty-two years old and the carpet is like new. 32-year-old carpet is usually flat from being walked on so much, and this one is still very soft and full. Yesterday i looked closer at it, and it continues under the walls, which tells me it factory-installed. How? How can a 32-year old house have factory-installed carpet that still looks and feels new? Especially a mobile home? The man it was bought from told us that several families had lived in it, but that seems impossible with this carpet, it has no stains and no flat spots. I am so confused. I bought a mobile home from 1985 a few months back, and it had previous-owner-installed carpet and subfloors, and that carpet was flat in the middle, as this one should be, but its not. Any logical explanation for this?
