    Hello all,
    Have any of you ever heard of gel backed carpet shrinking? I fitted the carpet in March and got a call from the landlord today saying that the carpet has shrunk. When I left the property it was looking really good.
    I've never seen the like before.

    Over safety flooring which was well fitted. Customers didn't want to spend a fortune taking the old floors up and Re screeding. No cleaning has been done as the building has been vacant since the job was done!
