Many people are not aware that you can actually do your own carpet repair without having to buy a new expensive carpet. You can either do it yourself or let a professional in his field do the repairs for you. Either way it will cost you way less than if you decide to actually buy a new expensive carpet and dispose of the old one.
There are many different carpet repair types that you will come across when researching the subject for your own repairs and here are just some of the most popular ones: carpet stretching, patching, seam repairs, flood damage repairs, stain removal and repairs due to pet damage including pet urine. Each has a different way of going about it and it is mostly for a different purpose.
For example, to remove stains left by your pet (such as urine), you might have to patch it. Patching is not so easy, but it can be done. If you have some left over pieces from the original installation, you can use that piece. Alternatively if the stain is not difficult to get out, you can also use a particular solution for stain and odor removal that you can find in most stores in town.
When you see that the piece started to come apart, it might be the best time for seam repairs. You could either glue it back or simply remove the old seam and do the seaming work again on it. Usually a seam can take a lot of use and abuse over the years so it’s important to get a carpet with a good seam to really last you for a life time without having to re-seam it.
When it comes to flood damage repairs, you might have to remove the actual padding, then dry out the carpet and use a new carpet pad instead. The problem with wet carpets is that they tend to get mildew on them very fast, so you need to act fast in order to dry out the piece without it sustaining any such damages.
