Cut the seam tape to the size of the carpet patch. Line up the carpet seam tape so that half of it is under the existing carpet and the other half of it will be under the patch. Use the glue gun to apply a generous amount of hot glue under the seam of the carpet. Slowly work your way all the way around the carpet until you have glued the carpet patch into place. (hint have a glass of water right next to you for when you get molten hot glue on your fingers. A quick dip will cool it off right away and prevent you from experiencing nearly as much pain.) When gluing the carpet patch down using the glue gun pay special attention to the backing. You want to glue the backing down so that its butted up just right. Also be especially careful to avoid getting the nap of the carpet pushed down into the hot glue. Its a mess when that happens and theres no recovery.
Getting a good quality carpet steam cleaner is essential to the cleaning process. Make sure you have one that is of good construction. It is very frustrating to keep fixing a machine that keeps breaking down throughout the process of trying to get the carpets clean. A good carpet steam cleaner should also provide enough suction to pick up most of the water put down in the process. Your carpeting should be damp not wet when the entire cleaning process is done. If your carpets are wet it will take a very long time to dry and it is also an indicator that the carpeting is not as clean as it could probably be. The last thing to look at is the scrubbing action. Most new models of a carpet steam cleaner either use a rotating roller scrub brush or spinning scrubbers. I believe either is good but I prefer the spinning brushes because they seem a little easier to remove for cleaning. If you have pets that shed you will probably be cleaning them several times throughout the project.
Carpet or slotted blade knife. Involved in almost every carpet repair task you can imagine a good carpet knife will never let you down. In the case of carpet stretching the knife is used to trim excess carpet from the edge after its been pulled tight. Staple gun. An industrial carpet staple gun isnt a regular staple gun. The staples are far narrower so that they fit between the nap. Carpet staple guns arent always necessary for carpet stretching but its good to have on hand just to make sure. Because a properly stretched carpet is pretty tight the tack strip alone may not hold it down satisfactorily in which case the staple gun eliminates any doubt.
Determining cost vs. value can be a bit of a balancing act. Understanding use and traffic may also keep you from buying budget priced carpet that over time will be disappointing. Short-term savings may result in greater long term cost. Maintenance: No matter what style or price carpet you choose without proper care and maintenance it will wear-out prematurely and need to be replaced before its time. The single most important thing you can do for your carpeting is summed up in three words: vacuum vacuum vacuum! Regular thorough vacuuming removes sand dirt grit and dust before it can work down deeply into the carpets fiber and backing. When these contaminates are allowed to grind their way into carpeting they have an abrasive action that can damage fray and even cut through carpet fibers.
