I just had new carpet professionally installed throughout my house, and it is shedding like crazy. Is this normal and if so, how long will this last?

RE: Help! My carpet is shedding!
It's probably normal shredding. When it's at the factory loose fibers get stuck in the pile and come loose in your home. It will usually stop after several vacuumings.

RE: Help! My carpet is shedding!
Its probably normal "fluffing" or "piling" as they call it, not shredding. It should stop after a few weeks and some good vacuuming. Some cheaper carpet will shred easier than others though, so beware if it continues for an extended period of time.
