How do you repair a 3x3 carpet square that my dog ruined?
V Smith on Jan 02, 2018The trick to joining carpet is to have the nap match. If the carpet has pile, brush your hand across it to see which direction makes it lighter and which makes it darker. Do the same with the patch. Get both pieces going in the same direction and that should help. Sometime carpet installers will use shears to make the pile level at a seam.Helpful Reply

Jean Devaney on Jan 03, 2018Yes maybe the nap is going in the opposite direction of the carpet that is there... check that out.Helpful Reply
