carpet repair


We want to put our house on the market in the next couple years and we already need a new ac unit and roof so we want to fix some cheap cosmetic issues. Is it possible to fix this carpet damaged by a cat we used to have?

If you have scraps or maybe could get a piece out of the back of a closet. You would really need a pro to do it so it wouldn't be obvious though. That repair would not be easy.

I'm pretty sure I have extra carpet but what would the process be? Cut a small portion from the new and glue it down?

I had an apartment manager ask me how to get kool-aid out of carpet, so I told him. The next day he called me to do a carpet repair, he had burnt the face of the carpet.

You will need either a hot steaming iron or a carpet seaming iron......

You could try that, but without experience, it may not look great.

I found something online that says to use a can to mark a circle around the area and cut it out with an exact knife. Then use the same can and cut out a circle in the new carpet. Then put carpet tape in the hole and under the existing carpet and put new carpet in hole and apply weight for several hours. Sounded and looked feasible to me. What do you guys think?
