Manual Repair of Ripped/Torn Carpet

Home Improvement,Family & Parenting,Health
Tears in carpet happen any of a number of ways. You might have been moving something and ripped the carpet or your dog scratched the carpet a little too hard. Regardless, there are some easy steps you can take to repair your tear in your carpet. One of the unfortunate byproducts of having carpeted floors in one's home or office is the potential for torn/ripped carpet. Rather than replacing an entire room of carpet upon tearing/ripping, there are ways to personally go about fixing these unsightly areas. It needn't be a difficult task. Carpet may develop tears in the seams, usually from furniture being dragged across it and snagging the threads. If the tear remains unfixed, it may become larger as foot traffic continues to cause wear to the area. Repairing the torn carpet is less expensive than replacing the flooring. With the proper tools you can fix torn carpeting and keep it from looking worn

Instructions (torn)

Remove snags and threads from the torn area of the carpet with scissors. Cut away any threads from the carpet backing.

Measure the length and width of the tear. You'll cut a replacement piece that is 1/2 inch longer and wider than the tear so it may tuck down into the hole.

Cut a patch from a scrap piece of carpet or remove a piece from the corner of a closet with a utility knife.

Apply carpet adhesive to the back of the replacement patch and into the tear on the carpet. Use enough adhesive to cover the back of the patch, but not so much that it oozes out when placing the patch.

Push the replacement piece into the tear in the carpet, allowing the backing to overlap the existing backing and hold for one minute. Avoid walking in the area for 24 hours to give the adhesive time to bond.

Fluff the carpet with your hand the next day to restore the pile of the carpeting.

Instructions (ripped)

Pull the carpet tight, so the two sides of the torn carpet meet. Make sure you align the carpet in the way you want it to stay when it's repaired.

Hold the carpet in place by tacking it down with a few nails or tacks. This will keep the carpet from gaping open again and place less stress and strain on the seam. Make sure your nails or tacks are securely placed into the floor, so your carpeting doesn't move.

Nail the tacks at least six inches away from the torn edges of the carpet. Lightly tap the nails or tacks into the floor with a hammer.

Sew the carpet back together using a curved upholstery needle with a monofilament as your thread. Use a fairly wide stitch (about an inch or two) to avoid placing unnecessary stress or strain on the seam.

Use needle-nose pliers to move the needle back through the carpeting. Be firm but gentle enough that you don't break the upholstery needle.

Double back over the stitching when you reach the end of your seam. This will secure the seam well with your monofilament

Brush the fibers of your carpet to fluff them up and cover the repaired area.
