In carpeted rooms, moving or relocating your furniture can leave unsightly dent marks in your carpet. You probably thought your carpet looked great, that is until you moved your sofa lounge uncovering hidden marks in your flooring.
Furniture protection casters don’t always work. In many cases, casters further pronounce the carpet dents. I have been in the carpet industry for many years and have come across several clients who have dished out thousands of dollars to replace their carpets once the furniture removalists revealed the heart-breaking carpet dents.
The thing is though, the solution to removing carpet dents can be rather simple in some cases. Here it is..
Place one ice cube inside each carpet dent, depending on the size of each dent may determine if more than one ice cube is required per dent. Next, allow the ice to melt which will then assist the carpet nap in forming its original fluffy texture thus reducing and eventually removing the dent. In order for the dent mark to fully recover, wait 1 day then use a fork to assist in lifting the carpet fibers. Depending on the severity of the carpet dents caused by the furniture, you may need to rinse and repeat the above procedure.
According to one of the furniture removalists on the Sunshine Coast, a simple way to remove carpet indentations left by furniture is to steam clean the effected areas. This process softens the carpet fibers allowing them to reform to their original composition.
For those of you who do not have access to a steam cleaner, a hot iron can also do the trick nicely. First use a damp towel and place it over the effected area. Then simply apply the iron and leave it sit for 1 minute. Again, depending on the severity of the issue you may need to rinse and repeat. But generally speaking, a hot iron will almost certainly remove carpet dents.
