Perfect Carpet Repair Damaged by Burns

Home Improvement,Fashion & Cosmetics,Crafts
Repairing your flooring will keep it looking great and help it last longer.Even carpet that is well taken care of may end up with some significant damages that need repairing, and such repairs are often easy for homeowners to fix themselves.

There are a few common problems that can affect carpets and each may require a slightly different solution. For instance, carpet can become burned, whether from an iron or from contact with some other kind of hot object. If the burn does not go too deep into the fibers, cutting off the tips of the burned fibers can make the burned spot look like new. If the burn goes deeper, it will be necessary to take more drastic action.

Professional carpet repair can be expensive. But what else can you do when your carpeting is damaged by cigarette or other burns? Actually, with a little patience, you can usually fix the damage just as well yourself. Here are tips to do it conveniently and effectively.

When only the tips of the carpet fibers are burned, carefully cut off the charred fiber with a pair of small sharp scissors. Lightly sponge the area with a mild detergent solution and again with clean water. The low spot won't be noticeable when the carpet dries.

If there is a large area of damaged carpet, you'll have to replace the burned area with a patch cut from a piece of scrap carpet. Here's how:

Step 1: From scraps, cut out a rectangle or square of carpet a little larger than the burned area. In order for the patch to blend in with the existing carpet without being highly noticeable, it must match the pattern in the carpet or the pile must run in the same direction.

Step 2: Press the scrap firmly over the damaged area. Holding it carefully in place, use a utility knife to cut around the edges and through the carpet under it. Cut completely through the backing, but don't cut into the carpet padding.

Step 3: When the entire damaged area is cut out, lift the burned piece out of the hole. Check the patch for fit, and, if necessary, slightly trim the edges so it fits the opening exactly.

Step 4: To install the patch, stick a piece of double-face carpet tape or apply an adhesive to the padding on each side of the hole. Position the patch, and firmly press the edges onto the padding. Let the adhesive dry for several hours before walking on the patch.

Deep burns, places where a significant number of fibers have been removed, holes, and other plainly visible damages will require the use of carpet patches to make the area new again. Carpet patches are not difficult to make, especially if you have some remnants of the carpet leftover in your garage, basement, or storage shed. If not, you will have to cut a piece from your existing carpet. Should this be necessary, choose an inconspicuous area from which you can get your patch, such as the corner of a closet floor.

Besides burns and holes, this carpet-patching method can be used to fix areas of the carpet that have suffered significant discoloration. In any case, a little patience and care can make it a cinch to patch a carpet, helping to keep homeowners from replacing all of the carpet in a room when just a small portion of it is damaged.

Help with Removing Burns in carpets

Do not panic, most times burns in carpets are caused by a spark from either an open fire or a cigarette. The open fire burn could be harder to fix if a piece of wood fell out of the fireplace.

Vinegar & Carb soda

Make up a small solution of carb soda and vinegar and leave on burned area for a few minutes, this should lighten the burn if not cut off the very top with a pair of scissors.
