In a world where it can sometimes feel as though it’s easier to throw away rather than to r e s t o r e, Green Man are proud to be able to deliver a professional carpet repair service.
If your carpet has a burn mark, a tear or hole, moth damage, or a even permanent staining, we can blend either a section from an off-cut or a small excision from inside a cupboard (for example).
Our method is designed to ensure the insert is blended to be as seamless as possible and provides a viable option where the alternative would often be disposal.
To find out if it’s possible to repair your carpet, just send us some images via email (or WhatsApp).
We’ll then be able to provide a realistic appraisal of the likelihood of success.
Usually, this is possible in about 85% of the problems we see.
Owing to high demand, we have redesigned our repair service to offer this service in your local area on either one or two days each month…
What does a carpet repair look like?
The images below provide a useful example of how our process works. . .
In this image, you can see that a small area of carpet with permanent staining has been cut out. Usually this is done as a square or cuboid shape to assist in creating a perfectly matched insert piece.
The scissors you can see are called “Naping shears” and are designed so that we can trim the carpet pile to the correct/matching heights.
In this image, you can discern where the fresh insert has been placed. This was cut from a spare piece of carpet in the exact shape of the damaged area. The slight colour variation is common and will vary, depending on how the “donor” piece of carpet has been stored and how much traffic/UV light the main body of carpet has experience. Over time, these minor discrepancies tend to level out.

A slow escape of water from an adjoining bathroom had caused black mould beneath the bath, as well as brown water damage to the carpet.
