getting carpet back on the tacks

Posted by Lost on August 19th, 2001 12:51 PM

So I have two cats that my wife refuses to get rid of. One of the cats keeps soiling a corner of the house. When I had the steam cleaners here they told me I could pull up the carpet, clean the cement, treat it, put down new padding and put the carpet back down. Well I've donw all this but I've run into a bit of a snag. Can anyone suggest the best way to get the carpet to stick down on the tacks from the carpet board? Also, will it make a difference if the tacks are rusted? I've never done this before but I'm sure there has to be a trick. Suggestions anyone?
