Carpet dents!

What should you do now?

Dealing with carpet dents

If your furniture sits atop your carpet, chances are, it has caused a dent onto your carpet especially if it has been there for quite a long time. Dents are much like holes – they take up space in your carpet, only, they are imitating the furniture’s bottom that used to sit on there. They don’t harm your carpet but they aren’t very nice looking at all.

Get rid of carpet dents immediately

When you move your furniture from its original position, carpet dents are inevitable but it doesn’t mean that you can’t get rid of it. Here are 2 effective ways on how to get rid of carpet dents on your own:

Use water

Fill a spray bottle with water and lightly spray it over the dents. Use a blow dryer, set it on the hottest setting possible (do a test patch from behind the door to check it first).

DON’T USE THE HOTTEST SETTING if you have synthetic carpet. Blow some hot air on the moistened area. The heat will help the wool of your carpet rebound. Don’t forget to fluff up the carpet fibre with your fingers.

Use ice cubes

Use ice cubes in each indentation. Let it melt away. Wait for 12 hours and blot up the wet areas. Use the edge of the spoon to lift up the carpet fibre back to its original state. You can also use a hot iron. Place a cloth on the area; place the iron several inches above the cloth for 1 minute. DON’T LET THE IRON TOUCH THE CARPET, it will burn your carpet. Brush up the fibre using a coin or the edge of the spoon.

There, like magic, carpet dents is gone!

Mistake #1.Only using a deodorising powder

Sometimes, you are too eager make your home smell nice. Only using a deodorizing powder without cleaning your carpet is a mistake. Yes a deodorising powder can eliminate foul odours but it won’t remove the dirt dust or what is causing the smell in the first place.

Mistake #2.Over wetting your carpet

Before you use any cleaning product, be sure to read the label carefully. Make sure to do a test patch on a hidden part of your carpet. This will prevent you from making an irreversible mistake. Don’t over wet your carpet especially in winter as it will be difficult to dry and could cause the backing of your carpet to rot. Be very careful with indoor plants that they are not over watered and leave your carpet wet.

Mistake #3.Waiting too long to have your carpets cleaned
