Apparently, the carpet installation company our new neighbors hired needed some extra space to cut the carpet to fit the room.
And so the carpet guys did this by unrolling the broadloom in the street and cutting the length they needed. Then, they rolled it back up and toted it inside the house.
Somehow, that didn't strike me as wise.
Although, we have hardwood floors, so we don't know if this is standard practice or not. What do you think?
