The Importance of Repairing Your Carpet Hole

If a carpet hole is not in an obvious place, most homeowners would just push this task to the side until they have time to deal with it. Let it be known, it’s important that you take immediate action to repair this problem regardless where it’s located.


First, a carpet hole just looks bad, especially if it’s in a high-traffic area. No one wants to have a carpet hole right in the middle of the living room. Even if it’s out of sight, just knowing that it’s there is a nuisance.

Secondly, having an exposed carpet hole may compromise the entire carpet. Debris, dust, dirt can work their way underneath the entire carpet. This can cause a shift in the carpet installation.


Thirdly, a carpet hole can end up being stretched and tore farther than it originally started.

Just like that you can go from an inexpensive fix to replacing the entire carpet. Now that would be a bummer. This is why it is important to repair your carpet hole as soon as possible to avoid further damage.

You can either avoid further carpet damage or you can cause damage to your wallet. Get your carpet back to its aesthetic value and decide if it more practical to get list your job online or DIY. The choice is yours.


Carpet Hole Repair Options

Hiring a Professional

Hiring a carpet hole repair professional has its benefits over DIY. With a carpet repair professional, you will have guaranteed results. Carpet repair professionals will have the tools, education, experience and ability needed to get the job done correctly.

This may seem like an expensive solution, but it beats replacing the entire carpet. In most cases, a carpet hole repair professional will charge about $100 to repair a small hole. This usually covers their call out fee, but not the replacement carpet.


Your carpet is an investment in itself. Trying to do it yourself may cause more harm than good.


Most homeowners will consider repairing a carpet hole themselves before reaching out to a carpet professional. There are some benefits to this process, but it can become costly if done incorrectly.

If you are one of those brave souls, then here is what it takes to get your flooring investment back to being aesthetically pleasing:


  • 1- 2 hours

Tools and Materials:

  • Utility knife
  • Scissors
  • Marker
  • Ruler
  • Double-sided carpet tape
  • Replacement carpet patch
  • Masking tape
  • Gloves

The how-to:

  • Identify the size of the carpet hole.
  • If you don’t have a spare piece of carpet, cut out an undamaged piece of carpet from a discreet area like the closet. Use a ruler to help as a guide.This will be your replacement patch.
  • Place a piece of masking tape to your replacement patch. Mark the carpet nap

direction on the piece of masking tape.

  • Using the replacement patch as a stencil, cut the damaged area out.
  • Place a piece of double-sided carpet tape on the removed carpet area.
  • Insert the patch with the same carpet nap direction as the surrounding carpet area.
  • Trim off any excess carpet fibers with a scissor.
  • Press down on the replacement carpet into place.
  • Use a seam adhesive to help seal the replacement patch seams.


Choosing a Repair Expert Over DIY

As you’ve read, carpet hole repair DIY is not rocket science. There are some questions you should ask yourself beforehand:
