Choose a scrap of carpet thats leftover from the original installation for the carpet patch. If you dont have any leftover scraps of carpet then youll need to remove a piece from a closet or from under a piece of furniture. Some people try to find a piece of matching carpet at a carpet store but its nearly impossible. On occasion we will have the customer buy some carpet from a carpet store that is very close to matching. We then take carpet from a closet to do the patch with and use the new carpet in the closet. Determine the direction of the nap. Carpet lays down more when you brush your hand in one direction than in other directions. Its incredibly important for proper carpet patching that all the carpet runs the same direction. Sometimes its really hard to tell which way the carpet nap runs. All I can say is to keep brushing your hand in different directions until you really get to know the carpet. If you keep at it youll figure it out.
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.
Removing the damaged carpet: Start by using a straight edge and a row finder. An ice pick or a Phillips screwdriver can be used instead of a row finder. Place the straight edge on the carpet with the groove side down. Use the row finder to separate the nap. Do this by dragging the point of the row finder across the carpet up and down and against the edge of the straight edge. Use a slotted blade knife with a fresh blade. You can use a slotted blade knife (butted up against the straight edge to cut through the carpet without cutting through too much of the nap if you used the row finder properly. The more nap you cut off the worse the carpet patch will look.
Few things can make a house feel more inviting or add a dramatic flair to a room than carefully chosen carpeting. Today its something most of us take for granted but that hasnt always been so. Before the 1950s wall to wall carpet was considered an expensive luxury reserved for the wealthy. That all changed with the post-war building boon in the middle of the 20th century. With new advancements in carpet fibers manufacturing methods and an expanding market wall to wall carpeting was suddenly within reach of a growing middle class. Sixty years ago fiber texture pattern and color were limited and vacuum cleaner technology was in its early stages. As a result carpet life was short. Today choices are nearly unlimited. A wide range of price points and carpet exist for nearly every room and application. Even moderately priced carpet can bring years of enjoyment to your home.
