Removing Carpet Dents

I was moving furniture, now have carpet dents. I need to remove them, having new furniture delivered in an hour. The carpet is Berber.

Removing Carpet Dents

I just got Martha Stewart's Homekeeping Handbook and it says to place ice cubes where the pile is crushed and the fibers will swell as they absorb the water. Follow up by blotting the area with a dry towel and vacuum to straighten the fibers. (12/15/2006)

The ice cube method works well for removing furniture dents, but make sure that the water doesn't damage the carpet, carpet backing, or subfloor.

If you use an iron, make sure to put it on "steam" setting and don't place it directly on the carpet or it will burn the fibers. Use a brush to pull the fibers and blend them in with the rest of the carpet. (10/02/2008)

Let me tell you, Mr. Skeptical (me) tried the steam/towel method. I used it on some dents that were from furniture that hasn't moved in 4 yrs. It worked great. (03/29/2009)
