Good day, everyone. I'm Joshua Clement with Lighty Contractors, and today I'm gonna talk to you about how to repair carpet weaving. For this job we'll be using a couple different things. For this job, we'll be using a carpet adhesive glue, a curved needle with a thread that comes very close to the color of carpet that you have. So with the string and the needle I've doubled up my string. What I'm going to do is take the carpet and twist the weave that has come out and I will take the string, wrap it around the end of the carpet, and make a knot around the end of the carpet. I will take my needle and go right where the weave was pulled out, go in the carpet, and then right back out. You want to make sure you get through the weaving inside the carpet. After you've done that you'll take and pull and kind of push at the same time that carpet back into place and then I will go through the middle of the carpet here and right back down very close to where I made my first stitch. So after I have it through the pad I'm gonna feed the string right down over the top of the weave so that way it pulls it down in there and then I'm gonna do the same thing to this that's left, go right through the middle if it. Feed it right down through the top of it and down into the pad. Now to finish it off I'm gonna go through the fiber of the carpet a couple times and leave this loop. Now I'm gonna go through the string that I left out and pull it tight and what this is gonna do is it's gonna suck this right down to the string that's here and make a nice tight knot, and then these little things here you're going to just trim up with a pair of scissors or razor blade. So just get very close to the carpet make sure you aren't cutting too much of the fiber of the carpet, trim it up, and then you have some frays left over so I'll take my carpet glue, put a little bit right on top and actually rub that on those frays and what this will do is it'll help it stick to the carpet around it. I'm Joshua Clement with Lighty Contractors, and we just talked about how to mend carpet weaving. Thank you for watching, good luck with this project.
