Carpet Repairs

Have you worn areas in your carpets?
Have you had a party and found a cigarette burn?
Has a teenager left an iron burn on the carpet?

When it comes to carpet repairs, ServiceMaster Clean have two techniques to help repair areas of carpets that have been burnt or damaged in some way:


If the burn is quite deep, the area of carpet can be treated with micro-shearing, which is a tool unique to ServiceMaster Clean.

Micro-shearing trims a fine layer off the top of the carpet and with a bit of skill from a ServiceMaster Clean expert can successfully treat a burn up to 2–3 mm deep. The area is gently feathered out giving an even appearance and leaving your carpet free from marks!

With a more noticeable mark where the burn is more severe there is the option to replace individual sections with your left over pieces of carpet. ServiceMaster Clean can often replace and repair the area leaving behind a near seamlessly restored carpet.


Re-tufting carpets can be carried out to restore burn marks, stubborn stains, moth damage and much more. Restoring the carpet to its former glory is a job for the ServiceMaster Clean experts.

Our experts will be able to diagnose the severity of the burn or mark and will treat accordingly to repair the damage. This could be cleaning or repair by re-tufting or reweaving the carpets.

Re-tufting works well on burns/damage up to approximately 2 inches (50mm). This involves removing the damaged tufts, preparing the area to receive new tufts from your spare carpet or we can even utilise tufts from the edge of the carpet where it is tucked behind the grippers. This means that the new tufts are the same batch, colour and age as the original damaged tufts. We then install the new tufts either by re-tufting or re-weaving as appropriate.

Larger areas can either be patched, if there is sufficient spare carpet, or even micro-sheared; where we can often make the damage much less obvious and save on expensive replacement carpets.

For smaller areas we can often make the mark disappear, for larger areas we can make it much less obvious that there was ever a problem.
