Who Needs a Carpet Inspector?
Consumers who have been unable to resolve their carpet claim on their own or through the floor covering retailer.
Landlords and tenants who are trying to settle a claim over damage or wear to wall to wall carpet.
Carpet installer or carpet cleaner blamed for a problem they did not create. While willing to handle if at fault, but not the fault of others. They need a non biased, knowledgeable individual to tell them if they are or are not.
Carpet manufacturers, dealers, and distributors commission inspectors to define the problem and place responsibility.
Attorneys hire the inspector to serve as a consultant and/or professional witness for the claimant or defendant.
Insurance companies needing an expert to analyze when and how the damage occurred.
Building contractors and architects who are in the middle of a problem and need to know who is responsible.
Fiber companies hire inspectors to inspect and correct the fiber that has gone into the manufacturing of a carpet.
An easier question to answer might be who doesn’t use carpet inspectors?

I have a carpet pulling out the sides of the carpet some are missing in the carpet. The carpet one is saying it is been eaten away it may be true but parts of it has pulled away from the edge of the carpet. I am wanting a person like you to come out and look and tell me what you think?It started 3 years into the carpet being laid we did not get onto it . It is 8 years old now but looks like. 20 year old carpet .
Susan, if you are located in Oregon or Washington you may wish to file an inspection request at https://theweinheimergroup.com/request-inspection/. Terry or Kevin will get back with you to discuss your concerns.
Carpet installed in 2004 before I moved in has been destroyed in about a 20 square foot area. (Damage was from pipe leak). My insurance company wants proof that my carpet is no longer manufactured in order to replace the entire bedroom. How do I find out this information?
Terry Weinheimer says
Marcy, there are tens of thousands of carpet styles, patterns, colors, unless you have paperwork showing the carpet style, it is highly unlikely you will be able to check it out unless you locate someone that has that information. Carpet styles change frequently and on a carpet this age it is doubtful that it would still be available. Even if you could locate it, new carpet is not going to match carpet that is over 20 years old.
