help! burnt carpet!!!?

help! burnt carpet!!!?

Answer:

The question is: how big of an area? If it is kinda small 3 x 3. You are going to have to do some surgery! First way: Find a spot of carpet that is good and hidden. Like in the corner of your closet. Take a really sharp knife ( utility knife works good here) and carefully cut out the burnt part. Then cut out the exact size piece in the hidden place. Swap the pieces out. Be careful to not cut into the padding under the carpet. Do not grab a good piece that is close to a seam (you'll just create more problems). You can glue the new carpet down with wood glue, just not too much. I hope that your carpet is thick, or this will not work. Also, you don't want the new piece getting sucked up in the vacuum cleaner. I really think you should just tell your mum though. You might get into a bit of trouble, but If she finds out that you did unqualified surgery on her carpet you are going to really be in a world of hurt!
Depends how deep you burnt it. If not too deep, try clipping the melted portion off with a pair of nail clippers or small scissors.
this happened to me, i was playing with a lighter (yup, im dumb) and i dropped a burning piece of tissue on the floor and dumped a bunch of water on it and it went out but now there's a big burnt spot and its IN MY MOMS ROOM!!! i know im going to die because i was being stupid, so now im going to try and fix it
