Most people are familiar with the fact that padding lies below the carpet which helps give it its comfortable feel when you walk on it. This is the bottom layer. Common types of padding include foam (cheap) rebond frothed foam slab rubber waffle rubber fiber (such as jute recycled textiles synthetic fibers etc.) and in some cases special Berber padding. Between the pile and the padding is the backing which is made of two layers and holds the fibers together so the carpet doesnt fall apart. When the carpet is manufactured needles are used to push the fiber through the primary backing. Its then sealed against the secondary backing with very strong adhesive to keep everything in place.
If you have a stain that you cant get out or you have damaged carpet due to a burn (not the good kind) or your bad dog or cat thinks that carpet is a food group then a patch may be the only solution. Patching isnt as easy as it looks. The patch needs to be exactly perfect. If theres any overlap or gap at the seam (at all) youll be sorry. You can use a leftover piece of carpet from the original installation or steal a piece of carpet from a closet to do your carpet patching. One thing you probably cant do is go to the carpet store and buy a piece to match. A carpet to floor transition is anyplace where the carpet ends and the floor begins. If its at a tile floor we call it a carpet to tile transition.
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.
You should start by retreating any areas that you think will be a problem. Coffee or juice spills heavy traffic areas or pet mess areas are all potential areas for pretreatment. One thing to note about pet messes; there are many good enzyme based cleaners that can be purchased at your local pet store that are great to clean pet messes. This usually involves cleaning the area several days or even weeks ahead of time to allow the enzyme formula to work. This schedule should be planned around the date you need to clean the carpet by. If you really think some areas may be a problem a little scrubbing with the brush to help release some stains would not hurt.
