We recently bought a house and had a bit of work done rewiring and re-plumbing everywhere. Carpets were fitted around the house before we moved in.
However, we have recently noticed in our spare room (after shifting some of the crap sitting there) that not all of the floorboards under the carpet have been properly nailed down (we had a spark in doing some re-wiring, so I'm assuming he didn't secure them after running some cables).
So, the question is, can I:
a) Lift the carpet on one side of the room without damaging it (I've only ever ripped up carpets before that were going to the dump)? If so, how do I do this?
b) Is it advisable/possible to just nail directly through the carpet to secure the floorboard?
