Cig Burns In Carpet.

Cig Burns In Carpet?

Here’s How Best To FIX It.


When I was actively cleaning carpets every day, often cig burns would show. A cig burn here and there would really spoil the look of nice clean carpets. I often wondered about how to fix these cig burns in my customers carpets.

None of the above carpet cig burn fixes was effective. This next one, however, was!

If you use a smear of glue and you paste the burned area of your carpet, then wait. Let the glue become tacky before you stick on some carpet fibers. Keep putting on the fibers until you have your carpet mended.


You’ll need to use an old piece of carpet which you don’t use anymore. A remnant, for cutting out some carpet fibers. If you don’t have any spare carpet, then you can cut some fibers out from the edges of your carpet. Do this behind a couch or someplace where it won’t be noticed.


Cut out some carpet fibers then paste them into the cig burn.


You can cut out a lot of carpet fibers from different areas of your carpets. Then paste them in onto the burn. But be sure to glue the carpet fibers in while the glue is nice and tacky.

When the carpet has dried, you can scissor the fibers so that they are all even in length. Do this using the scissor points and just cut a small area at a time. Set the pile using a white hand towel. Simply just set the carpet pile so that it flows all in one direction.  Just like combing the pile only your using a hand towel.

Using this idea, you must be quick. Paste the fibers into the burnt areas while the glue is tacky. You can use a pair of tweezers or simply just paste the fibers in with your fingers. Just be very careful and gentle, but do be quick. Obviously you don’t want glue on your hand so do be extra careful when pasting in your carpet fibers.

Please let me know how you get  on with this idea. Your comments are valued.
