Cutting back on luxuries is a great idea — you should cut back once in a while. Unfortunately, many people will neglect important things such as getting their rug repaired. Let’s make one thing clear before we continue, getting your rug repair is not a luxury. If you neglect getting your rugs repaired, it will cost you more money in the long run.
A hunter stalks his prey, a fisherman makes himself attractive. I’m not saying that you shouldn’t be proactive. Quite the contrary, you do need to advertise and promote yourself but when you get the prospects’ attention, stop hunting and become the fisherman.

As you refasten the carpet to the tack strip, you need to stretch it toward the wall. If you’re dealing with a corner or a small area, you can use a knee kicker alone. Starting at one end of the loose carpet, set the head of the kicker about 2 in. from the tack strip and nudge the carpet tight against the wall. Force the carpet into the tack strip with a stiff putty knife. Also tuck the edge of the carpet into the space between the wall and the tack strip with a putty knife. Continue along the wall, moving thAue kicker over about a few inches each time.
My carpet has a burn mark on it. Can it be fixed? That depends on the extent of the burn damage. If the burn marks are relatively small, it may be possible to repair the carpet through patching. Often, a company will use pieces of carpet from a closet or under a piece of furniture to create the patch. When done correctly, the patch should be nearly invisible.
Whether the burn mark is from a cigarette, a hot iron or an electrical short circuit, the techniques you will need to use are the same. Before you begin, you must assemble your tools. You will need a razor knife, some fine sandpaper, a pair of small scissors with pointed ends, a piece of paper, a pencil, some double-sticky carpet tape or latex adhesive and a small piece of matching carpet remnant.
