Home Improvement,Fashion & Cosmetics,Crafts
Although patching can be the solution to avoid carpet replacement, you need to take the time and care to fix the carpet. Pet damage repair on your carpet is not impossible to fix by yourself. It needs patience and attention, but it can be done. Start by cutting the backing of your carpet.

Carpet pet damage repair is usually done by patching the affected area.Sometimes the pet only leaves some stains which might be removed with by chemical cleaning. However, if this is not possible, patching is the only available solution. This is not as easy as you imagine at first glance. It is basically about cutting the carpet and then matching a patch onto the cut, but it also requires knowledge and skill. The final outcome also depends on how worn your carpet is.

Although patching can be the solution to avoid carpet replacement, you need to take the time and care to fix the carpet. Pet damage repair on your carpet is not impossible to fix by yourself.

Take a pointed object in order to make your way through the fibers and then cut on the channel that you have created. It is important that the surrounding fibers remain intact; otherwise the patch will be too visible. Once you have done the cutting, check the direction of your carpet. This is very important, so mark it with an arrow. Unless your patch will match your carpet's direction, it won't look natural and it will be extremely visible.

Cut a piece that matches the damaged area from the closet or other area of the carpet that is not visible. It won't be hard to match the direction because your carpet has the same direction in your entire home. The arrow you placed on the damaged piece is helpful now.

You are now one step closer to a successful carpet pet damage repair. Take some seaming tape and put it on the edges of the hole that you created when removing the damaged piece. You also need a glue gun to glue the tape onto the edges. It is now time to put the patch inside. Pay attention on how you match the edges and use a carpet roller if necessary.

The carpet pet damage repair is almost done. If the patch is visible, try refitting it until it looks better. Use the carpet roller to make the glue enter the holes in the carpet backing. Caution should be used when pressing on the carpet with hot glue from the glue gun because the hot glue may seep through the seamed edges and you now have a whole other problem to contend with, so take take care and do not rush your work of art.

How to Patch a Carpet

Things You'll Need:

Carpet fix Glues Carpets Remnant Duct Tape Utility Knives Duct Tape

Cut out the entire damaged area with a utility knife. Try to do this with just one cut on each side and avoid cutting through the carpet pad. Use the cut-out piece as a pattern to cut a new piece. Be sure to match the direction of the pile. Spread carpet adhesive on the exposed carpet pad and on the back of the carpet patch itself. Put some adhesive under the edges of the carpet patch surrounding the hole as well. Press the patch into the hole and rough up the pile with your fingertips. Let the glue dry for about six hours and then vacuum the carpet patch area.

Tips & Warnings

If you accidentally cut the carpet pad, fasten fix it down with a piece of wide duct tape. If you don't happen to have extra matching carpet, get a remnant at a carpet store. Take your damaged piece with you when you go to the store to help you find a good match. Use a sharp blade in the utility knife for the best cut. Use caution when working with a utility knife.
