Ruined Your Carpet? Here's Your Last Hope

Stained or Damaged Carpet? Get "New" Carpet from Your Closet!

Ken's Quick Answer:

If you "ruin" your carpet, you may think that you have to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars to replace it. Today, I'm offering you one last hope. Replace the stained or frayed carpet with a piece of undamaged carpet from your closet.

Ken's In-Depth Answer:

Don't forget what's in the closet! What do I mean by that?

If you have carpet in your house, the time may come when you'll have problems with it. Maybe you'll have a stubborn stain or pets who chew it and claw at it. When there's no fixing the problem, one last bastion of hope is removing a piece of carpet from your closet to replace the problem area. Sometimes, we are able to make a nearly invisible repair to the stained or frayed carpet!

We have many success stories, including clients who have saved several thousand dollars by not having to replace an entire room with a new carpet.

Unfortunately, this solution doesn't always work. Sometimes the closet carpet looks obviously newer than the surrounding carpet. (This is especially true if it's an older carpet that has lost its color over time.)
