KELLY EDWARDS: Hi. I’m Kelly Edwards, and here’s my GMC Trade Secret.
It’s not uncommon to get a burn spot in your carpeting. But what do you do once it’s there? Because replacing the carpeting could cost hundreds of dollars. So I’m going to show you how to repair the burn spot.
So there are a couple of things you want to have on hand before you start our project, and that is some super glue, a razor blade, some little cutting shears, and some tweezers.
Now, we’re going to start with our scissors. And you first want to cut out any of the burn marks out of the carpeting.
Okay, so now that all the brown burn parts are cut out of the carpeting, now it’s time to grab all the carpet fibers that we can use to fill your hole. Now, the way you can do that is by grabbing a razor blade and just lightly scraping across the carpeting. That’s going to remove all these fibers.
Okay. So now I have a bunch of my carpet fibers. And this stuff here is going to be tucked into the hole. Now, the way you get it to stick is you grab your super glue and you just want to put a little bit inside the hole. Fill it up here. And then you want to take your carpet fibers and, with a set of tweezers, you want to start putting the carpet fibers into the hole.
You just want to fill it up until it’s kind of a heaping mound here. And then you want to wait a few minutes for your super glue to dry. And then, after it’s dry, you just want to fluff it up and remove any of the excess, and your hole will be filled.
So I’ve waited a few minutes for my glue to dry, so now I’m just going to go down to my spot here and I’m going to move away any excess, and I’m going to fluff up my carpet and my carpet fibers. And I just want it to be level with the carpeting. So I’m going to push it all away, and that’s it.
So with a few simple items, I’ve repaired a carpet burn spot. I’m Kelly Edwards, and this is my GMC Trade Secret.
