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.
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.
The next phase would involve the cleaning process itself. The removal of the resurfaced dirt will be done here. As mentioned there are different ways of cleaning the carpets but just so you know there are just three major cleaning procedures done when it comes to carpet cleaning. Carpet cleaning would involve hot water extraction dry extraction and cold water extraction. These methods usually work for a certain type of carpet cleaning job. It is best to research first on which is the suitable cleaning method to do so that cleaning will be done in the best way possible without leaving any dirt behind.
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.
