This job was in Sydney Metropolitan area and was a residential carpet repair with the damaged cause by a vacuum cleaner that pulled threads in the carpet when the owner was cleaning their home. We used a technique called invisible mending to hand sew the new yarn back into the area where the threads where pulled out. Our main challenge we faced when making this carpet repair was to match the construction of the weave as perfectly as we could.

In this residential job in the Sydney Metropolitan area. The damage was caused by a dog. I had to cut out the damaged area and replace it with spare carpet the customer had kept stored away from when the carpet was first installed. The challenges I faced was trying to match the carpet perfectly so the joins would not be visible using a process called invisible mending. It was also on a join so repairing carpets on or near joins can create other problems.
