If there is just one Berber carpet row that has been pulled it can be re-burled (glued back into place). If the Berber carpet run is more serious say for example a dog was trapped in a room and tried to dig her way out then a patch is in order. If your Berber carpet is loose then it will need to be stretched. Stretching Berber carpet isnt really any different than stretching carpet of any other type. If a carpet comes apart at the seam it can be repaired in several different ways. One way is to glue it back together another way would be to remove the old seam tape and do the entire seam over. If the seam that came apart is on a Berber carpet then it becomes a bit more challenging.
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.
For people who did not save their carpet-remnants but need certain areas of their carpeting to get replaced there are still ways to get matching replacement remnants. Many carpet-stores and warehouses carry a wide variety of different styles of carpeting that may match your existing carpet perfectly. It is always wise to shop around for matching carpet remnants before you put up the money to buy a completely new carpet and pay for its installation. Most common colors of carpeting are relatively easy to find selling as carpet-remnants. If you are able to find a matching carpet remnant you should know that by using it to replace your existing carpet you will be saving a lot of money. If you need to replace a small room with carpeting you should consider shopping for carpet remnants as well. Many times you will be able to find carpet-remnants that provide a lot of extra carpet. On occasion you will be able to replace the entire carpeting of small rooms with just one large carpet remnant.
Even if you do not use carpet remnants to replace your existing carpeting you should still realize that they may be useful. Some people cut up their carpet-remnants and use them in order to place under the legs of chairs and tables in order to prevent them from making a permanent indentation in your actual carpeting and the carpet pad. You may have also seen people using carpet remnants as a small mat in their kitchen area or to cover up a stained area of carpet. Most people can find uses for their carpet-remnants throughout their house. For this reason it is always recommended that you save your carpet remnants when you initially purchase a new carpet. Do not think that you will benefit from getting a very small amount of money for your remnants. After all your remnants will match the color and texture of your carpeting they are not meant to be given to someone else. If you save your carpet remnants you will surely be able to find a good use for them.
