How to repair a carpet burn

How to repair a carpet burn.

A simple guide to fix a carpet burn.

1. Carefully trim off any loose or damaged fibers that may be surrounding the burn damage.

2. Cut a small square piece around the perimeter of the burnt area with a utility knife, Or pluck out the charred fibres with tweezers if the burn is really small.

3. Apply a thin layer of latex carpet adhesive onto hessian tape and allow to cure for 5 minutes.

4. Template a small square piece of matching carpet. A square carpet patch repair is far more likely to be seamless.

5. Place the hessian tape inside the square patch and drop in the template you made earlier.

6. Trim away any excess fibres by using duck billed carpet knapping scissors.

7. Finish by brushing the area of the patch repair.

8. Allow to settle for 24 hours before vaccumming and cleaning, for a longer lasting carpet repair.
