When you begin to shop for carpet bring a detailed description of the room where it will be installed. How much foot traffic will there be? Are there outdoor entry points? Does the room get direct sunlight? Do you have pets? Will this room be used regularly by children? Knowing these answers will make it easier to work with a carpet professional to be sure you purchase carpeting that is best suited to your needs.Color: The color of the carpeting can really set the mood for a room; from elegant to cozy and even dramatic.

Once youre familiar with how your carpet is constructed its easier to envision how patching works even if youve never done it before. These are the basics of your carpets anatomy and should help you in assessing how far down the damage has gone which is an important step in carpet repair and carpet patching. If you dont have any leftover carpet from the installation we may be able to steal some carpet from a closet beneath a radiator or from under a piece of furniture that you never move. (Now youll never move it for sure.) If your carpet is a relatively common style a nearby retailer may have a perfect or near-perfect match that you can purchase. (The chances of finding a perfect match are somewhere between slim and none.) If you need to patch a significant area that matches the rest of the house (such as several steps in a stairway or a hallway one great carpet patching alternative is to re-appropriate matching carpet from another room such as a bedroom. Re-carpeting just that one bedroom means the hallway/stairway still matches the rest of the house and costs a LOT less money than replacing the carpet for whole common area.
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.
