The technique of carpet patching

by Perth Carpet Master Carpet Repairer & Restorer
Carpet patching is generally done by replacing the damaged area with a new and similar piece of carpet. An experienced and qualified expert knows the exact way of doing the job step by step in an efficient manner. 

Some scraps may be left from the original installation. These leftover pieces are best to use for a suitable patching work. It is always advisable to save some scraps during the time of a new carpet installation. 

To find a matching piece of carpet is in a closet. This is even no need to replace it with anything because that's a place where hardly anybody will see. 

But the chances of finding the same material are generally less most of the time. Hence it is always good to save and keep some extra pieces at the time of installation. 

Carpet patching may not give the perfect outcome due to the following reasons: 

  • Pieces of carpet nap may have been cut off.
  • The patch may run toward the wrong direction. 
  • There may be a gap presented between the seams of patch.
  • The new piece may have a different colour than the original one due to fading.
  • When the job is not done by an experienced professional. 

Because some problems that many people prefer carpet invisible mending in Perth

However, understanding the different layers of carpet is important whether you are resorting to carpet patching or invisible mending. The top most of a carpet layer is known as pile or nap. When going through any kind of carpet repairing process, the pile needs to be considered.

The next layer that comes after nap is backing. Most carpets have 2 layers of backing. The layers of backing and nap together form a very strong adhesive. There is a pad present just below the backing.

In case of minor repairs, only the top layer of the carpet is restored without disturbing the other layers.
