Thank you.

Removing Carpet Dents

There are special "carpet rakes" to help with that, but a heavy duty plastic bristle hairbrush will work too and costs a lot less money. You'll need to gently rough up the dented portion of the carpet, vacuum, and repeat rough up and vacuuming (maybe a few times) and eventually the worst of the dent will come up. I've used this technique before and it worked well for me. Hope it works for you. (11/07/2009)

Take a washcloth or towel and use an iron on the steam setting. While it's still warm and moist, rake it with a comb or brush. Do this several times. The fibers are crimped/folded down and need to be "lifted". (11/07/2009)

Put an ice cube in the dent and leave it till it melts. It will soften the dent and then run over with a brush. (11/07/2009)

A regular dinner fork works great, quick and easy and no wet! Just gently scrape the dent and it loosens the fibers. (12/07/2009)
