Damage From Pets Causes Pulled Threads

This was one of our carpet repairs in Sydney in a residential home. The pet damage to the carpet was caused by a cat pulling at the loops with its claws. I re-tufted this area with a needle and some of the same yarn by hand. The challenge is trying to make the same loop construction that is like the original which was machine sewn. Hand stitch is never as perfect as machined stitched but I can get it close. The customer loved it. The yarn that we stitched in was new and needed sometime to wear in and become a little soiled similar to the rest of the carpet. Once this is done you will never see where the new yarn was sewn in.

For this carpet repair, we had to go in and make a repair to a piece of carpet that a tradesperson was working on at commercial project in a new apartment complex where he was installing a door stop when all of sudden the screw caught the threading of the carpet and caused a pulled thread creating a major eye sore in the new flooring. When working on this project, we had to cut out the damaged area and re-glue it using the invisible mending technique. This was in a brand new apartment unit which made it imperative that we make the repair look seamless and invisible so the new tenants could not see that there was ever any pulled thread damage to the carpet.

This was a Sydney area commercial carpet repair job. The damage was made by knife cuts in carpet caused by painter when removing plastic that was protecting the carpet. The cuts were made with a Stanley knife. On this job we had to use the invisible mending technique to replace a cut out piece of the damaged carpet with an undamaged piece of carpet we were able to find. As the units are brand new if we were unable to make invisible the whole unit needed to be replaced at huge costs to the tradesperson.

Gold Coast Carpet Repairs Of A Pulled Thread

This was a residential carpet repair job in the Gold Coast area. The damage was a pulled thread caused by a high healed shoe when the tenant was walking across the floor. We had to carefully hand sew the yarn back into the damaged area of the carpet. Due to this home being a rented property the repair had to be invisible as possible. This proved to be difficult as it was out in the middle of the room, however we were able to accomplish the job with great success.

Damage From Pets Causes Pulled Threads

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.
