Hello, everyone. I'm Joshua Clement, and today I'm going to talk to you about how to fix a carpet after the threads have been pulled out. Now this is a very simple process. We will be having to push the threads back into the padding or the mesh underneath the carpet and getting them to stay there. For this job we'll be using some carpet glue and a regular ink pen with cap. So here we have our thread that has been pulled out. What we'll do is we'll take our carpet glue and go right to where the thread has been pulled out and apply some glue into that seam. Next we're going to take the cap of our ink pen, hold the carpet over the seam where it's pulled out and push it back into place. After we get it down into the fibers of the carpet, we're going to hold it there with our finger, allowing that glue to get all around the fibers and hold it down in there. Now we're going to kind of work it around a little bit after we get it in there so that way the glue can get on all the fibers and suck it down in. Now after you get your fibers to stay there, we're going to take the glue and push down on the fibers and apply a little bit of glue right on top. Then, we'll roll it around a little bit so that way it sticks to the fibers next to it too. Now this fix is going to take awhile to dry so you want to make sure that nobody is walking on it and no vacuum sweeper is going over it. You want to make sure that it thoroughly dries for about 24 hours. Now there might be a few stray fibers that you can go back and glue down a little bit later but this beats having to replace an entire section of carpet and having to seam that in. Thank you all for watching and good luck with this project.
