Carpet burns can destroy the appearance of your homes décor. It’s heartbreaking to see the flooring that you meticulously care for marred by a split-second accident. Besides the cozy comfort and beauty it provides, your floor covering is an investment. It pays to keep it in the best condition possible.
Too often, homeowners think that there’s nothing to be done to fix carpet burns, or they think they’ll get around to it “someday”. This kind of damage can be repaired, but it’s important to address the problem right away.
Allowing carpet burns to go un-repaired will just let the damage grow. Every bit of day-to-day traffic around the problem encourages raveling and further degradation of the surrounding fibers.
We Can Fix It
It is critical to choose a cleaning and carpet repair and restoration professional with the right training and certification. All Spotless Carpets has over 10 years’ experience and we are trained and certified by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC). Let us evaluate your situation and we’ll provide guaranteed restoration.
There are so many minor hazards in your home that present little danger to your family, but can really wreak havoc on textiles. Clothes irons, curling irons, fireplace embers, candles, smoking materials, etc. can all cause severe damage with only a moment’s contact. Carpet burns are so frustrating because of the immediate sense of helplessness they can invoke.
As upsetting as carpet burns can be, it helps to remember that all modern carpets are tested and required to meet certain standards of resistance to flammability. In fact, a small burnt spot is a reminder of how safe our homes have become. Today’s textiles will not catch fire from casual heat or even the open flame of a candle or fireplace ember. What could have been a terrifying experience years ago is just a nuisance today.
The good news is that we can restore most carpet burns and leave you with flooring that looks like new. Several methods can be used to achieve a completely unnoticeable restoration. For very small areas, the damaged fibers can be removed and replaced with identical tufts. Our skilled team will carefully match the color and the nap of the surrounding fibers. The replacement tufts are permanently secured to the backing.
We Handle Tough Jobs
Larger carpet burns, or those that include damage to the backing, might need to be patched with an identical swatch. The replacement piece can be taken from remnants left over from the original installation. If none is available, the patch can be discreetly taken from a hidden area like the back corner of a closet. (The burnt piece can be cosmetically improved and used to fill in the hidden donor area.)
The burned area is cut away in a shape that can be exactly reproduced in the patch sample. All of the exposed edges are sealed to prevent raveling. The new piece is installed and adhered in place with careful attention to the direction of the nap. Finally, the fibers are fluffed, teased and allowed to relax in a natural posture that will never show a hint of any repair work.
You should leave this kind of work to a properly trained and certified restoration technician. Mishandled attempts to fix the flawed spot might lead to unsightly results and possibly cause even more problems. If the backing, surrounding fibers or the underlying pad is injured, you will need professional assistance anyway.
