The carpet in the household often suffers, not least from the fact that common dirt settles in it. At home, it can easily happen that soot from the fireplace or even hot coals falls on it. In these cases, it is necessary to proceed immediately with cleaning, otherwise irreparable damage will occur to the carpet. But don’t worry, because our team of carpet repair Sydney professionals is all set to help you with all sorts of carpet issues. 

Carpet Burn Repair

As I have already mentioned, the hot carbon and soot, which is very dyeing, can degrade the carpet so much that it is still practically unusable. Especially if you have it located in the living room or other spaces, which, among other things, serve as representative places at a time when a visitor comes to your home. Then you have no choice but to lay a new carpet. The main reason is to save the value and appearance of the carpet.

Removal procedures

Soot removal

In the case of carbon black, the procedure is relatively easy. First, vacuum the affected area thoroughly and dry, if you do not have a wet cleaning machine. Then apply a little shampoo on the carpet to the incriminated area. You buy it in drugstores, or it is available in specialized stores that sell vacuum cleaners and cleaning products. Add a little lukewarm water to the carpet shampoo and brush. Then let the place dry.

What is needed

  • Vacuum cleaner
  • Carpet shampoo
  • Lukewarm water

Burn removal

The moment a small burn forms on the carpet, for example near a fireplace or as a result of contact with a cigarette butt, first brush the damaged area and vacuum it. If dirt still persists, use 30% hydrogen peroxide on the damaged area. But beware, when using it, the carpet may fade. Therefore, it is good to first test the piece of carpet that you have left during installation to see if there is a loss of colour.

What is needed

  • Brush
  • Vacuum cleaner
  • Hydrogen peroxide 30%

How long will it take?

When cleaning burns and soot from the carpet, it is mainly necessary to proceed as soon as possible after the accident. The cleaning time depends on the size of the damaged area. As for a small piece, it will take you a maximum of 10-15 minutes of work.

What will be the cost?

I assume that each of you has a vacuum cleaner at home, so there is no point in talking about the cost of purchasing it. Then the costs are basically minimal. In the first case, all you have to do is buy a shampoo for carpets, which will cost you around AUD 20. In the second case, hydrogen peroxide. A litre bottle of 30% solution costs about AUD 50.
