Hello, everyone. I’m Joshua Clement, and today I’m going to talk to you about how to repair a carpet damaged by a cat. What we’re going to have to do here is get these fibers back into the pad and make it look as natural as possible. For this job, we’ll be using a curved needle, and a thread that matches as close as possible to our carpet. So, what we’re going to have to do is take our needle and start right where the fiber is still connected to our pad. We’re going to poke it through our pad and our mesh underneath. Pull it on out. After you get it out, we’re going to take our fiber and we’re going to tie a knot around it. Take the back side of your thread, and we’re going to tie two knots, so that way our string can be held in there. One, and two. After that, we’re going to work our way down the line, going through the fibers, pulling it tight back in there. Then, we’ll take – since this is a loop carpet – we’ll take, roll our carpet, and then make a little loop, then go on the other side of the loop, and run our needle through there. And, we’ll just do this all the way down. After you get to the end of the run, we’re going to go through our fibers, pick up our hole, and go through it twice. Take that knot right down into the fibers. Then, we’ll cut our string. Now, with this excess left over, you can just trim that back. Make sure that you don’t cut your string that you put it in with. And, you can use this little bit of fiber left to go back into these other areas that has been ripped out if you don’t have enough fiber, and patch those too. This is a great way to fix your carpet easily without having to put in a big old patch or replace the entire area. Thank you all for watching, and good luck with this project!
