Advice on Repairing and Maintaining Carpet Wear

Postby drummerob402 » Sat Jul 02, 2016 4:39 pm

Hi there,

I have two issues with my hallway carpet:

1) the carpet has worn away on the edge of a step, such that there's a hole in the carpet through to the underlay and it is slowly growing.

2) the carpet has detached from the cover strip that lines the doorway and is becoming a nuisance.

I've attached a picture of both.

If anyone has any ideas on how best to either repair or protect these from further wear, it would be very much appreciated. I don't have any surplus carpet pieces as it was laid by the previous owner.

Thanks for your time,
