The worms in your carpet could be carpet beetles, maggots, pin worms, or some other type of worm. Getting rid of these worms can be challenging. Recommended treatments involve thoroughly vacuuming the carpet first. Then, apply a vinegar and water solution to the carpet to kill the worms. Allow the solution to soak in, and then wash the carpet with a cleaning machine.

If that does not work, the carpet and padding underneath may need to be completely removed and replaced.
