Just because your carpet has had an accident doesn't mean you need to replace it. You may be able to patch the damaged section.
A carpet, although very beautiful can look real ugly if there is a nasty stain or a hole in it. Read on to find out how to mend a carpet.
However, before we tell you the actual process of patching a carpet, there are certain things that you will need. These are:
Cutting your replacement piece
Double-sided carpet tape is the easiest method for fastening the patch in place. Stick the tape on the floor first, making sure it gets right to the edge of the hole, then peel the top section of the tape and put the patch into the hole. Carpet tape will hold the patch, but over time, it will dry and lose it stickiness. Plus, it won't stand up well to any moisture from cleaning your carpets.
An alternative method to fasten your patch is to use clear waterproof adhesive or clear silicon caulk. Either of these will stand up better over time and they won't be damaged by carpet cleaning liquids. Put the adhesive around the edges of the patch and press it into the hole. Here again, be sure you don't get any on the undamaged carpet fibers.
Brush the carpet fibers of the patch and the undamaged carpet together with your hand to remove the visible line where the patch meets the carpet. Put some weight on the patch (books make a good choice) and leave it for 24 hours.
