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.

A patch is one of the most common types of repairs that we do. We use a carpet patch to solve several types of carpet problems where small to mid-sized portions of wall-to-wall carpet have been damaged. People usually call us to patch their carpet when other methods to restore their carpet wont work. Common causes of carpet damage that require this type of carpet repair include carpet burns carpet stains carpet tears carpet holes pet damage (Bad Kitty!) and remodeling as well as worn traffic paths. We remove the damaged area and replace it with an identical piece of carpet. When done correctly its normally but not always invisible to the eye. Depending on the type of carpet you may be able to see the patch but it will almost always look far better than what we started with.
Every once and awhile people find that their carpeting has stains that they cannot remove no matter how hard they try.

One way to target highly-specific areas of your carpet for replacement is by utilizing carpet remnants. Replacing your existing carpet with carpet-remnants is very easy to do and will look great once you are finished. The reason that you will end up with an excellent-looking carpet after adding carpet-remnants is due to the fact that the carpet remnants are the exact same color material and texture as your existing carpet.
