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.
Loose fibers in the carpet- Watch out for loose fibers in the carpet. These can get snagged on the rotating brush roller and rip apart you carpet; or clog and damage the roller on your machine. If you know you have loose fibers in your carpet the easiest solution is to take a scissors and trim off the loose fibers as close to the base of the carpet as possible. This will hopefully prevent any snagging of the fibers on the roller. Have a plan of attack- Planning your route or order of carpets can save some headaches at the end of the project. Carpet cleaning professionals have done this enough times that it becomes second nature but you should plan your route so that you do not need to walk across already cleaned carpeting until it is completely dry.
Carpet stretching is generally done in two different situations: During the initial installation and for a carpet repair. The initial stretch during installation ensures that the carpet is taught secure and even across the entire floor covering. Taught carpet will stay in place and stay smooth and flat to the floor where it belongs.Poor installation: The carpet may have been improperly installed. In most cases of a bad installation the installer didnt use a power stretcher properly or at all. Excessive wear due to traffic: Sometimes a carpet will need to be re-stretched because of wheelchairs walkers tricycles etc. Even when installed to perfection it can become loose from excessive wear.
The greater the damage the more complicated the repair so it helps to understand what exactly your carpet is made of so you can assess how far the damage has gone. Every carpet has several layers below what we can see with the eye. That top layer which comes in various colors weaves heights materials and densities (and which is the fun part to pick out when you go carpet shopping) is called the pile. The pile is made from many different materials: nylon is the most common encountered in both commercial and residential carpet repair because it is relatively stain- and heat-resistant and doesnt crush easily.
