Last week on poker night at my house, one of my husband’s friends burnt a whole in our carpet with his cigar! I want to know how to fix just that one part of the carpet. I was wondering if I can do this myself. If this is too tricky to fix myself, I was wondering how much money I can expect to pay if I have someone else come to fix it?

RE: please advise on repairing burn hole
You can probably do it yourself with a little patience. Simply cut the burned part out with scissors or a knife, as little as possible to get the browned area off. Then cut a tiny piece of carpet from an inconspicuous area, or an extra piece of carpet, if you have one. Take a chunk of the fiber and glue it in the burn hole. Arrange it so that the fibers stand up, if possible. Then after it’s dried, trim to match surrounding area and it should blend right in.

RE: please advise on repairing burn hole
Hello i think ur problem has been solved i am very happy for u

But there is a solution for u that can may be help you in future whenever you find same problem.

1 Move the furniture and cut some of the top layer of the carpet, just enough to fill in the hole.
2 Paint the hole with nail varnish, either clear or a color matching the rug.
3.Place the carpet fibres on the nail varnish and press firmly.
