How to Repair Carpets

How to repair carpets when you accidentally scratch it when moving furniture?

Here are the suggestion for you:

  1. Use a razor to shave up the hairs next to it, apply glue (latex or glue) in the area to be repaired, and then shave down the hairs can be glued on.
  2. If the hole is the whole through the blanket, put a layer of cloth on the bottom, then follow the first suggestion.
  3. If it is cracked, use the needle to find the same color thread to knit the rug. The carpet is the same as the rug. Plastic carpets are coated with a thin PVC glue universal glue, and then on the reverse side of the carpet coated with universal glue, after the glue dries, on the reverse can be glued.
  4. If the hole is broken. If the hole is small, just cut a small piece from the corner to repair it, knit the cloth, and glue the glue. If the hole is big, go to the place that sells the rug and ask for a small piece or buy a small piece of the same color and come back and fix it. If it’s too big, cut the piece all the way off and cut the square, patch another piece, glue the back and you’re done.

The reverse side of the carpet should be sanded clean. The kind you use to mend your shoes is a universal adhesive. The carpet is flat and under vertical pressure, and the down-glue only acts as a fixation. Just don’t let it slide. The adhesive should be scraped on both sides and pressed on the hand so that it does not feel sticky to the hand. Then put it over and just stomp a few feet hard.
