If you recently purchased a new carpet you may find that the vacuum filter bag fills up quickly with carpet fuzz. This is normal and does not mean that you have a defective carpet. Cut pile carpet made from fibers 2-8 inches in length are spun together to create a soft fluffy wool-like look and feel. In the manufacturing process these yarns are secured to the carpet with the latex backing. The short end pieces of these fibers that do not get anchored in the latex are loose and will become detached during vacuuming. Depending on the density of the carpet, this “shedding” can last up to 2 years and is not a cause for concern.
