Imagine that you’re trying to hang a picture frame on the wall. One thing leads to another and you decide that the picture would look better in another spot. The only problem: You already hammered nails into the original spot. You remove the nails and are left with four small holes in your otherwise perfect wall. Now, imagine having to spackle the holes and then repaint the entire wall. Talk about a “hole” lot of work! Luckily, all you’d need to do is take a small brush and paint over the holes. Once the paint dries, it will blend in with the rest of the wall as if nothing ever happened.
Similar to spackling a wall, carpet patching extends the life and look of your carpet. Rather than replacing the entire carpeting, you can correct those small imperfections for a fraction of the cost.
Are you typically the do-it-yourself type? While there are plenty of videos showing how to patch a carpet, we always suggest hiring a professional. Why? Because the whole point of carpet patching is to save money and make it look like the problem never occurred. No matter how ambitious you are to tackle the problem yourself, amateur work will be just as noticeable as the original problem. We’ve been patching carpet holes for decades at The Carpet Chemist and know how to erase everything—from chew marks to paint spills and everything in between.
Since no two carpets are ever the same, we need to see the problem before determining the right solution. You can even take a picture with your phone and send it to us online for a fast and reliable quote. We’ve been repairing carpets for many, many years and can quickly determine what needs to be done and how much it will cost. Sometimes, the carpet might just need to be stretched and tucked to correct the issue. But if the damage is more significant, then a small portion of the carpet will likely need to be replaced. Carpet patching is used to resolve a number of carpet-related issues, including:
Once we’ve pinpointed the area that needs to be replaced, we’ll remove the damaged carpet and replace it with a donor piece. This is where the strategy really comes into play. If you don’t have any leftover remnants of your original carpeting (Don’t worry. Most people don’t!), then we’ll remove a small section of carpeting from a less-used area in your home such as a closet. Now, you might be wondering how we’ll replace the carpet in your closet. We carry common carpet colors in our vehicles and will perform the second carpet repair right then and there. While this color will never be an exact match to the carpet in your home, we’ll use our inventory to match it as closely as possible. What’s really important here is that the donor piece that’s going in your living room, dining room or other heavily trafficked area is a piece of the original carpet. After all, it’s way more important for the carpet in your living room to perfectly match than the carpet in the corner of your bedroom closet!
Compared to the cost of replacement, carpet patching and other types of carpet repair can help you save 60 percent to 75 percent more money. Why replace the entire carpet when there’s only a small portion that’s damaged? Here at The Carpet Chemist, we’ll put your carpet under the microscope to zoom in on the problem and provide the most cost-efficient solution possible. From carpet patching to professional carpet cleaning, fall right into place this holiday season with sparkly clean carpeting that will make your guests feel right at home.
