I need some expert advice, please. I have a piece of paper (plain white A4 size office paper) stuck to the carpet in one of my bedrooms. Could someone please advise me as to how to get the paper off the carpet (preferably without wetting it)?
If you're wondering how this happened...
Three nights ago I was investigating a "mould" smell coming from the spare bedroom of my house. This is not an old house and the bedroom carpet is approx. 3 years old. The spare bedroom door is usually closed, so the smell is most notable on entering the room. I live close to the sea and we have had a particularly rainy WINTER this year, so perhaps this explains the mould.
The carpet was probably melted by the iron and the paper is now :Glued down" I'd pull uyp what you can to see the extent of the damage if any
My DH dropped a hot iron on my carpet (not once but twice) and in just a few seconds...it melted 2 big places
I love your sign off name. If it were me, I would pull off the white paper. If bits of the paper were still stuck to the carpet, I would gently with my scissors, cut the top of the carpet with the paper. Take my hand and smooth out the carpet. I have done this in the past with glue, majic marker and even a little paint now and then. Nobody knows about it, except you. Good luck and do as I do, just kill the weeds in the driveway, not your carpet.
Thanks for your advice, Jean & Diana
I've had no luck - the paper is well and truly fused into the carpet. I will have to replace that section.
Hmmmm... or... maybe I could colour the paper in with crayola pencils!
