Berber carpet is a type of carpeting that uses loose loops. It is a soft, luxurious type of carpet, but also one that is prone to snagging. Instead of getting it replaced, you can first try to fix the snags and improve its appearance. Here are some tips for fixing the snags before you get your carpet replaced:
Gather Your Supplies
Before you begin repairing your Berber carpet and fixing the snags, you should collect the supplies you need. You only need a few basic supplies, which you very likely already have in your toolbox. To fix snags in Berber carpet, you need either a knitting needle or a small screwdriver.
You should also have some super glue on hand and paper clips at your disposal. Remember when using the super glue to be careful not to get it on your skin. This type of glue can cause burning, redness or even blistering if you have sensitive skin.
Repair the Snags
Now that you have collected your supplies, you can begin fixing the snags in the carpet. Here are the basic steps needed to fix snags in your carpet:
The final step of this repair process is using your super glue to keep it in place. Put a small amount of super glue at the base of the carpet fibers where they are attached to the jute backing.

Most of us take great pride in our homes and do everything we can to ensure its beauty and comfort. While attending to our home's interior, we sometimes tend to neglect the lawn, especially during winter. Since moving into my "dream home" I feel compelled to maintain the lawn and garden as impeccably as I do the interior. That's why I've hired a lawn care team to see that my landscape is in tip-top shape all year round. I've learned the importance of fertilization during the late fall and early winter. Keeping the lawn trimmed during those cold winter months will help, too. The experts even help prepare my lawn for the upcoming spring. During this time, family celebrations and parties are plentiful, and I plan to have the best looking lawn on the block. I can't wait for spring to come!
