Fast Effective Fixing of Frayed Carpet

Home Improvement,Family & Parenting,Health
A quick guide on home repair for frayed and raised carpet edges. I can't think of anything more annoying than a carpet with fraying or raising edges. Whenever you see one, your first instinct is to pull the betraying strand off. Don't do it. Pulling on the loose strand will only cause it to unravel further making it look even worse, and do damage to your carpet that will be impossible to fix without calling in an expert and shelling out a lot of cash.

If your carpet only has one or two offending strands hanging off of it, the easiest way to fix it is to get a sharp pair of scissors and simply clip it off. To do this properly you need to get down, close to the carpet and gently separate the strand from the rest of the rug. Clip the strand as close to the carpet matting as possible. Be very careful to only get the loose strand or strands and not to clip any of the intact carpet. On most types of carpeting, you won't even notice that this has been done. The other strands of fiber will blend in and cover it.

The fraying edge of an area rug can be fixed in the same manner, but you might want to spot glue it, to prevent it from happening again. If the area rug is washable, you will need to use a glue that is waterproof and check that the repair has held up every time you wash the rug. Another way to fix a fraying area rug, if you are a little bit handy, is to re-sew the damaged edge. You will need to use a large needle and find thick thread in the matching color of the existing edging of the rug. If the area rug is expensive, the best way to fix it is by calling a professional. Raised carpet edges not only look terrible but can be a safety hazard as well and should be repaired as quickly as possible after noticing it. Loose and raised carpet edges can cause a person to trip and fall.

Children are notorious for this. A simple way to fix this problem is to get a large stapler, one that can be used while opened flat, such as an office model, or if you have one, a staple gun. Push and pull the carpet back into place and then staple it down tight. Be careful that the staple only goes through the carpet matting and not the plush part of the carpet. Use several staples to do this in order to make sure it stays down in place. If you are working in a tight corner, a hammer and nail may be easier but be sure to hammer it down flat so it doesn't protrude through the carpet strands. It is not recommended to use a nail in an area where people will be walking as the nail can come loose over time and create its own problems. Leaving the carpet problem for too long will only increase the need for a professional to come in and repair it. If your carpet is too badly damaged, it might be time to start thinking of getting a new one.
