Carpets are indeed one of the most important things that we can find in our homes. These can make or break the look the whole room. This is why most people always make it a point to have carpets in their homes so that their homes will look as elegant and as nice as they should be. This is true only under one condition. Carpets usually look their best especially when they are still clean and new. A newly bought or installed carpet would always pull the look of the simplest room there is. Most carpet owners do make it a point to maintain the cleanliness of their carpets. We all know how carpets attract dirt so much. Even if we try to take care and keep our carpets clean there will always be a stain that will begin to pop out of it.
Turn the carpet patch over and use the straight edge to cut a perfect patch from the back. If you are untrained chances are that you wont be able to cut a perfect patch. (Tip use a fresh blade in the slotted blade carpet knife) Now that the carpet patch is cut exactly perfect without any gaps or overlaps at the seams its time to seal the edges. You can seal the edges with latex or with a glue gun. Just use the slightest amount of glue along both edges so that there wont be fraying in the future. Not everyone seals the edges but it is highly recommended. The carpet patch is cut to perfection the edges are sealed and now youre ready to adhere the carpet patch to the rest of the carpet. The way we do it is to use a special carpet seam tape with an iron or with a hot glue gun. For the beginner Id recommend using the glue gun.
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.
Removing the damaged carpet: Start by using a straight edge and a row finder. An ice pick or a Phillips screwdriver can be used instead of a row finder. Place the straight edge on the carpet with the groove side down. Use the row finder to separate the nap. Do this by dragging the point of the row finder across the carpet up and down and against the edge of the straight edge. Use a slotted blade knife with a fresh blade. You can use a slotted blade knife (butted up against the straight edge to cut through the carpet without cutting through too much of the nap if you used the row finder properly. The more nap you cut off the worse the carpet patch will look.
