You are likely to find that the carpet underneath has dents from the weight of the furniture you just moved when you move your furniture. Additionally, the carpet may look newer in clean, brighter shades. Though there are a number of ways to prevent and restore carpet dents, the important thing is to remember that you use caution and care to ensure you do not cause damage to the carpets. Today, we at Palm Springs Carpet Cleaners would like to share some insight on removing or preventing dents from carpets.
How Do Ice Cubes Remove Dents from Carpet?
Once you move the furniture try placing an ice cube in the dent and let it melt into the dent for a couple hours if the dent is already set. Use a towel to soak up the excess water afterwards, then fluff the carpet back up with a spoon. Do not forget about the ice and leave water in the carpet as well.
Removing Carpet Dents with Hair Dryer
Apply some heat to the dent in the event cold did not work. You can wet the dent and use a hot blow dryer heat it or use iron a damp towel over the dent. With a spoon to fluff the carpet just like with the ice. By holding the blow dryer too close, be especially careful not to put a hot iron directly on the carpet or scorch the carpet.
How Do I Keep My Carpet from Getting Dents?
Make the feet wider: Spread the weight of the furniture over a larger area to help prevent the carpet dents. The dents will be shallower and recover more easily by placing the furniture disks or larger pieces of wood under the feet so that the weight is distributed over a larger area. Where the feet are not visible, this works well for couches and beds. The discs would look out of place for tables and chairs.
Periodically move the furniture: In order to prevent them in the first place is the most effective way to not have carpet dents. So that they are not resting on in the exact same place long enough to make the dents become permanent, move your furniture a few inches every couple of months. If the indention is not created and left for long periods of time, carpet will bounce back.
