How To Repair A Carpet Seam Page 1


Step 1. Separate the carpet fibers along the seam with your fingers, so you can clearly see the seam. Use a carpet or utility knife to cut through the seam tape stuck to the underside of the carpet. Open up the entire length of the seam and remove any remaining tape. Be careful not to cut the carpet pad. If you cut the pad, repair it with duct tape.

 

Step 2. If there are any loose carpet fibers that could accidentally be pulled, snip them close to the base of the carpet.

 

Step 3. Measure the length of the split seam and cut a flew piece of hot-melt seam tape to size. Hold back one edge of carpet (not the carpet pad) while you slip the seam tape, adhesive side up, under the seam. Center the tape between the two pieces of carpet.

 

SAFETY FIRST

Be sure to regularly replace the blades in your utility knife. A dull utility knife requires you to use more pressure, which makes accurate cutting more difficult.
