Helpful Hint Keeping Carpet Repair Last Long for Burn Marks


 
Home Improvement,Crafts,Fashion & Cosmetics
Caused by irons, cigarettes, hookahs, curling irons, and other hot objects, burns leave dark, ugly holes in carpet.Carpet burns are common. If your carpet has been accidentally burned, you are not alone. Carpet burns are frustrating and commonly believed to be permanent. However, the truth is, certified professionals regularly repair carpet burns. Regardless of whether your kids knocked over the clothes iron or your cigarette found a new home outside of the ashtray

It will take more than a stain remover to repair a carpet burn. That's because the damage goes deeper than the surface. Even if the cigarette was on the carpet for just a few seconds, it has burnt the carpet fibers. Thus, you'll have to make a quick repair to remove the burnt carpet, and replace it with unscaved fibers.

Supplies needed to repair burnt carpet:

Manicure scissors Pointed tweezers Carpet adhesive Q-tips Carpet scrap (more on this later) Soft bristled brush Note - If you need to do a carpet repair for a carpet burn in an apartment or rental home, or in an area of the home that is rarely used, you can substitute carpet adhesive for a hot glue gun. Using hot glue will not provide the same durable results as carpet adhesive, but if you need a quick fix to get by with it will work just fine.

How to repair burnt carpet:

Step 1 - Remove the burnt section. Use a pair of manicure scissors to cut the carpet fibers that are burnt. Don't just clip the top of the fibers, but really cut down to the quick. This will help the new fibers adhere better later on.

Step 2 - Remove any remaining burn. If you can still see remnants of the burn, use a pair of tweezers to tweeze out any remaining fibers. Throw them away.

Step 3 - Find a carpet scrap. To get carpet fibers of the identical color of your existing carpeting, you'll want to snip a small amount from an unseen section. You can get it from inside a closet, underneath a solid piece of furniture, or from a leftover piece of carpet.

Step 4 - Snip new fibers. Again, use a pair of manicure scissors to carefully snip off clean fibers from the carpet scrap. You'll need enough fibers to fill in the empty hole left behind by the burn.

Apply the adhesive. Carpet adhesive is available at any home improvement store, and comes in small pint and quart sizes. This small size is all you'll need to repair a small burn hole. In fact, you'll have quite a bit leftover for another use. Apply the adhesive with a Q-tip, or the tip of a screwdriver. You won't need much - About the size of a dime.

Step 5 - Attach the new carpet. Use a pair of tweezers to gently place the new fibers in place. Fill-in the hole completely, until you have more fibers that you think you really need.

Step 6 - Let the adhesive dry. Consult the adhesive packaging for proper dry time, and let it set. Place a heavy object, such as a book, on top of the patch.

Step 7 - Fluff the carpet. When the adhesive is completely dry, remove the heavy object and fluff the carpet with a soft-bristled brush. You may see some of the fibers come loose, which is fine. That's why we use more fibers than necessary.

If you have a large piece of carpet that you have to replace, skip these steps and make a carpet patch instead. This will involve cutting out a section wider than the burn and replacing it with a new section.
