I am planning to sell my home. To that end, I have done a lot of work
on the house, including new carpet. For a number of reasons, I had to
live in the house several months after the new carpet was installed, and
as a result there are several obvious indentations in the pile, one from
where a lazy boy chair has sat right in the middle of the living room.
House is not yet on the market, and when it is it will be empty, so the
chair etc will not be there to "hide" the damage. I have tried
"combing" the pile back up, sucking it with the shop vac, etc,
unfortunately I think the pad is permanently dented in these areas. I
have an unused section of the carpet left over from the installation. I
am wondering if a GOOD carpet guy could come in (GOOD, as opposed the
moron who did this install & actually CARPETED OVER the keyhole for the
fireplace gas jets), cut out the depressed section (about 3' square)
replace the pad & sew in a new piece from the left over material so the
repair would be more or less invisible. Anyone have any idea? Because
the area is so prominent, it really looks like crap & pretty much
un-does the "new carpet" look.
