Fixing apartment carpet
This is a common problem with carpet, specifically older carpets. All you need to do is contact an installer or flooring store and request an estimate to re-stretch the carpet. It should not cost very much to do and is a fairly quick job in most instances.
Humps can be caused by any number of things, but in my experience the two biggest culprits are the underpad, and delamination/stretching caused by excessive cleaning (hot water extraction) or something that has broken down the latex that adheres the carpet to the secondary backing.
