The client that runs this business in Albuquerque, New Mexico, had a small problem. His business was running well but so was his carpet. When his carpet started to run he decided to give New Mexico Carpet and Repair and Cleaning a try. It is important to address this type of problem quickly to prevent it from getting bigger. In this case, the damaged section was removed and a new piece was inserted. The seam was perfect but you can see the patch. This is due to carpet wear and also sometimes carpet being bleached by the sun. The new piece has not been exposed to the sun and wear like the older carpet and therefore do not match. There are instances where even if the exact same carpet is used this variance is noticeable due to this. There are times we will cut a piece of the exact same carpet from an inconspicuous place and use it for the patch. This can also happen in this case. In time, the wear and sun exposure may bring the repair to blend in with the rest of the carpet. The good news is the run has been stopped and the carpet will not continue to run and the entire carpet did not have to be replaced. This saved this business owner some hard earned cash. Our technician is a certified trained professional and can help you decide on the best course of action for your specific situation.
