Einleitung

If your carpet has an unseemly stain, hole, or burn, use this guide to replace the section without the unnecessary fuss and expense of replacing the entire carpet.

Before beginning the fix, make sure the carpet and the sample piece are clean. Some homes have extra matching carpet leftover; however, carpet can always be purchased at a home improvement store.
