Tips Carpet Repairs
Carpets are a crucial part of every home, even if it just a small spread in your TV lounge to add some colour, the only difficult part of having one is the possibility of ruining it. This may be by spilling food, dropping hot embers on it or even just ware and tear causing it to split, all you need is a few tips on how to prevent this.

Burn or tear

The first thing that you will need to remember is that we are wanting to save money, so find the area that the burn or tear is in and measure the size of the piece you will need to replace, then either go buy a small piece of the same carpet or if its easier and part of the carpet is hidden then cut off the same size peice and use that to fix the problem. This may seem like an extreme save of money but a lot of the time a part of one carpet is always covered by furniture. When cutting the section of the carpet leave a small amount of space on each side of the stain so that you have space for error. 

Retach

Sometiimes when a room has a full sized carpet that goes from wall to wall, it gets abit detached. This could be due to people or animals running in the room or just general use can cause it to weaken. This should also be fixed as fast as possible, if you do not fix it as soon as possible then it could lead to the edge fraying and then it will be harder to put the carpet back in. The first thing you will need to do is the use a screwdriver or a knife to pull the threshold lip up so that you can put the carpet back in, if the edge of the carpet is too frayed then you will need to fix it first before trying to put it in.
