Successful Carpet Repair in Bristol

Carpet repair in Bristol

We were recently contacted by a holiday let company about the possibility of a carpet repair as the lounge carpet in one of the properties had unfortunately been burnt by fire embers. A successful carpet repair relies on you having donor carpet available that is the same as the damaged carpet. This can be either an off-cut, or can be taken from a cupboard or an out of the way area. Ideally we would like there to be more donor carpet than the area that needs repairing.

After the customers initial contact, we confirmed that they did have donor carpet available & therefore asked them to email us some photos of the damage, This is so that repair technician can confirm that it is something he can repair & also be able to provide you with a quote.

On this occasion, we quoted for the mark nearest the hearth but the other marks (as seen in this photo) that were leading towards the sofa were so small, we needed to assess these in person.

On arrival at the property, our technician, Jon found that the donor carpet was to be taken from the carpet that was fitted in the lounge. Luckily for the home owner, the carpet had been fitted with excess around the edge of the room & Jon was able to take the donor carpet from this.

A successful repair will rely on careful measurements & accurate cutting, especially when you have limited donor carpet available to you.

It was a tricky repair due to the pattern in the carpet, which meant it had to be cut, rotated & trimmed before fitting.

A slight colour variation is common with carpet repairs & will vary, depending on how the donor piece of carpet has been stored & how much traffic/UV light the main body of the carpet has experienced. These minor discrepancies tend to level out over time.

The smaller burn marks were also tricky to repair due to how small these were. For these, Jon used plugs of the donor carpet to repair them as this offered the best option for the appearance of the carpet. As you can see in the following photos, Jon did a great job & the customer was extremely happy with the results.
