I recently bought a home. When the previous owners left all their
furniture was removed. In every room where there was furniture the
carpet is sunken / depressed where the furniture once was, for example
you can see where the feet of wardrobes, beds and sofas once were.
I was wondering has anyone got any good tips on how to repair such
carpet indents so they are risen and become flush with the rest of the
carpet once again.
Thanks for you suggestions and advice in advance.
Not only is the carpet pile flattened out the underpad is flattened down to
nothing. Sometimes moisture will work, sometimes steam cleaning will help,
if it has been flattened for many years, nothing will restore the pile to
match the surrounding carpet. A close match is the best that you can hope

That's easy. Borrow a horse. Let the horse run around in the house
for a few hours. The carpeting will all match. You can ride the
horse while he does the carpet run too. May as well have a little fun
in the process.
By the way,
I think the previous owners got a lot of nerve removing all their
furniture when they moved. You should tell them that.
