Danny Lipford: Diane wants to know, “Our carpet has indentations in it. Can it be repaired?”
Yes, that’s a real common problem. When people decide to rearrange their furniture a bit, you’re left with those indentations from maybe the legs of a sofa.
Here’s how you get rid of those indentations. First of all, take a damp hand cloth, and put it directly over the indentation. Then use a steam iron and heat that towel up. Then after a few seconds, pull it back and use a spoon to fluff up the fibers of the carpet.
A little more steam heat, a little more fluffing, then finish it off with a vacuum to really make everything look nice and consistent.
That way, no one will ever know that you rearranged your furniture!
