When moving couches, ottomans, sofas, loveseats, coffee tables, end tables, bar chairs, etc, it’s very common to see indentations left by the legs of the furniture. No problem, right?
Well, we just want to make sure it stays “no problem”. Handling this situation the wrong way could give you a much larger problem on your hands, and we certainly don’t want that.
We enjoy providing these articles free of charge because our goal is to help you renew, refresh, and revive your carpet, so you don’t have to replace it in the future.
As the old saying goes, a stitch in time saves nine.
Indentations from furniture re-arrangement are a normal phenomenon in carpet. Often, the indentations will self-correct when the furniture is moved and the carpet backings and pile re-acclimate. In other circumstances, it’s a great idea to vacuum the area and go back over it with a light brushing. In extreme cases, the indentation can be covered with a damp towel and steamed with an iron for a few seconds, followed by brushing while warm to “resurrect” the pile in that area. Nylon carpet pile (about 70 percent of residential carpet) responds particularly well to this procedure.
There are, however, limitations by the type of pile fiber. If the pile is made of non-resilient olefin, as in olefin Berber or level-loop olefin commercial carpet, the indentation may be permanent. That’s a characteristic of the fiber. This is why non-resilient olefin often is combined with resilient nylon in several popular carpet styles.
