carpet repair

Posted by Sandra on February 17th, 2001 01:16 AM

I had two small stains in my carpet they were impossible to get out. So I had a so called carpet installer come out and cut the two pieces out and replace them with some left over carpet. This is what he did,he cut the two new pieces to fit and then put hot melt tape which he heated underneath the new pieces and then combed it and left. This does not solve the problem as you can tell where it has been replace as there is nothing holding any of the four seams together,it just holds the carpet down and I am sure no for long. I have read on many websites about using seaming cement,will this help with the seams and make the replacements less noticeable. If this will work how do I apply and do I apply to the edges where the seams meet.I also thought about pulling the carpetaway from the wall and then doing the seams with the seam tape and then have the carpet rekicked. Please help and give me the best possible solution. Thank you in advance.
