If an area of your carpet has suffered from some sort of damage, whether that be permanent stains, burns or the handy work of a four legged friend, the thought of replacing the whole carpet is never a good thing. Which is why, we are so pleased that we offer a carpet repair service.
A successful repair will depend on a donor piece of the same carpet. This can either be an off-cut, or taken from a cupboard or out-of-the-way area. Ideally, there should be more donor carpet than the area that needs repairing.
Our repairs specialist, Jon spent a productive day on Thursday last week carrying out carpet repairs in Bristol.
As you can see in this photo, Jon has already cut the small areas of carpet with the damage out. Usually this is done as a square or cuboid shape to assist in creating a perfectly matched insert piece.
Once the damaged area has been removed, it is time to insert the donor piece of carpet. In this instance, the homeowner did not have any off cuts but luckily had a carpeted cupboard. Jon removed the donor carpet from the cupboard cutting the exact shape that he needed for the repair.
A slight variation is often common when inserting the donor carpet as depending on where is has come from, there is often a colour difference as well as a contrast to how the pile appears. Jon will always do his best to make the repair as seamless as possible but sometimes any discrepancies will need some time to settle & blend in with their surroundings a little more.
However, I think we can agree that a great job has been done here & the customer was really pleased that repair rather than replace was achievable.
