Repair Frayed Carpet Yourself!
Carpet can become frayed for a variety of reasons - pets, age, normal wear and tear, etc... There's good news though. If you notice fraying in your carpet, you don't have to replace the entire carpet, which can be quite costly. It is possible to repair the damage and keep it from spreading!
With the right glue, fraying carpet can be repaired! As long as you are using a non-water based glue, your carpet repairs will remain intact and not breakdown if a spill or other water damage occurs. For best results, a hot glue gun is the best option. Additionally, this method is best used for small, isolated areas of disrepair.
How to Glue Carpet
Before you begin your carpet repair, make sure the carpet is clean and dry. You'll also want to comb through your carpet and remove and loose fibers. Finally, using a carpet shampooer or carpet cleaner, be sure to give your carpet a thorough cleaning to remove any residual dirt and debris.
To glue your carpet fibers back into place, use a hot glue gun to manually glue and hold the carpet back together. Be sure to work quickly to avoid the glue drying before you're ready. Once applied, give the glue time to fully dry before walking on or cleaning the carpet.
Larger Areas of Damage
The hot glue method of carpet fray repair is only intended for use in small areas. If you find you have a carpet with an area that is larger than what a glue gun could fix or is very damaged, there are still options! For situations where a glue gun just won't do the trick, it's still possible to avoid the cost and hassle of a full carpet reinstallation.
