How Can I Remove Depressions in Carpet?


Q: After I moved a large armoire in my living room I was left with depressions in the carpet. It has been a few days and these furniture marks don't seem to be going away.




A. To raise depressions left in carpet by heavy furniture try steaming. Hold a steam iron close enough for the steam to reach the carpet. Don't let the iron touch the fibres, especially if they are synthetic because they can melt. Lift the fibres by scraping them with the edge of a coin or spoon.
