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.
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.
This process was accomplished with a profusion of soap or detergent and water. When the operator thought that the carpet reached maximum cleanliness the carpet would be very thoroughly flushed with water and then suspended on a rail in the air to dry. Another weighted rail would be on the lower end of the carpet to stretch it back to its original dimensions. When the carpet was completely dry the back was resized to replace the sizing lost in the scrubbing procedure. After this step the carpet all clean and beautiful once again was returned to the owner. It was good for another few years of traffic. Although this cleaning method is still employed today it is probably used to a lesser degree since wall-to-wall carpeting has become popular. Wall-to-wall carpeting cannot be removed to provide it with a thorough scrubbing. Therefore one must resort to a variety of alternative methods to achieve this same end. Basically this consists of three steps: a thorough vacuuming spot cleaning of the surface to be scrubbed and the scrubbing-cleaning operation. The cleaning operation may be performed in a variety of ways generally divided into two classifications: surface cleaning and deep cleaning.
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.
