Successful Carpet Repair in Bristol Apartment Block

Restaurant upholstery cleaning in Bristol

We are often contacted by customers who are interested in having their carpets repaired as a cost effective alternative to replacing them when accidents have caused irreversible damage. Irons, hair straighteners & curlers being the main culprit.

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. 

One of last week’s carpet repairs was at a Bristol apartment block where an electric scooter had been doing wheel spins in the communal hallway causing tears to the carpet.

You can see that a small area of carpet with the damage has been cut out. Usually this is done as a square or cuboid shape to assist in creating a perfectly matched insert piece.

Scissors called “Naping shears” are used so that we can trim the carpet pile to the correct/matching heights

Once the damage has been cut out, it is time to insert the donor carpet. This is cut from a spare piece of carpet in the exact shape of the damaged area. A 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.

The completed repair as shown above looks much better & gives a positive first impression when entering the building as well as removing the possibility of the damaged areas becoming more worn and therefore increasing over time.
