Dealing with Torn Carpets


Carpets are an excellent addition to our homes – they could turn any room into a cozier one, can make your home more welcoming, and the best thing is, you can find a type that will fit your budget.


But just like everything else, no matter how wonderful carpets are, there are still some downsides to using it on your home. Perhaps one of the biggest downsides to using a carpet is that the possibility that it will deteriorate or show signs of wear and tear over time.


Having tears on your carpet can be a big problem. However, there are still some steps you can take to temporarily remedy this distressing problem.


What makes carpet even better is that you can move them to almost any location you may please. And one of the most logical things you can do upon seeing a tear on your carpet is to move it to another location where there would be fewer people who will see the tears. For instance, you can move it to a storage room. Moving your carpet to an area with less foot traffic can also help save the torn from worsening faster.


Alternatively, if you think moving your carpet to another room is too stressful, you can opt to move items over the torn portion to hide it from sight. Place a table, an ottoman, or even a potted plant over the affected part of your carpet to conceal it.


Torn carpets are also a good reason to take advantage of area rugs. Adding an area rug over your carpet won’t only hide the torn parts, it can also immediately enhance the overall look of the room.


Since carpets are basically made from fabrics, sometimes, you can treat them as such; you can also remedy holes or tears on your carpet by covering it with a patch.
