Berber carpet or loop carpet is a great choice for higher traffic areas and will minimize footprints as it is often very dense. Berber carpet got it’s name from the indigenous people of North Africa, the Berbers, who created hand woven textiles that featured a distinct knot and natural multi-color flecks spun from different parts of the sheep’s coat. Berber carpet is when the yarn is sewn into the backing and left uncut. If it becomes damaged or snagged then it will start to unravel like a sweater. This is a real carpet emergency because if the thread is continuously pulled then the damaged area will grow bigger which in turn means a larger repair and a more expensive repair bill. Berber carpet is a specialty repair and not all technicians are experienced with Berber repairs. Our technicians are the best in the industry when it comes to Berber, loop pile and patterned carpet.
Our customer in Fountain Hills called and scheduled a same day Berber carpet repair. This customer had recently gotten a new puppy and the puppy decided that the Berber carpet looked like a fun play toy. He chewed and dug at this area creating a hole in the carpet. The customer said that his carpet was 15 years old but that he was not ready to replace it yet so he wanted to get this area repaired to keep it from getting any bigger. For any carpet repair our technician will need a remnant of the exact same carpet. As carpet is made in dye lots it is impossible to match. This customer did not have any extra carpet remnants so our technician took a section out of the back of one of his closets. The technician used this section for the visible repair and then replaced the closet section with a non-matching carpet remnant that he had in his truck.
