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.
Be sure and read the mixing direction on the back of the product you purchase. A solution that is too diluted will not clean and too much soap will leave your carpeting full of suds and will not extract properly. The nice thing about many new carpet steam cleaner machines on the market is their ability to mix the correct amount of soap right onboard the machine so you dont have to worry about measuring. I would recommend cleaning furniture drapes and small area rugs first. Any over spray from cleaning these will end up on the carpeting and will be extracted later anyways. Always check labeling before cleaning furniture to make sure that it can be cleaned with water. Also steer clear of soaking down furniture too much with the solution. Because furniture is contoured and uneven it is difficult to create a good seal on the extraction wand which can limit the water removal.
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.
