Can anyone tell me how to take out a scorched mark on carpets please?
You can try lightly sanding it and using a handheld vacuum to vacuum away the residue
I dropped my hot iron on the carpet and now I have a image of an iron on my carpet. The carpet feels hard and I don't know if it can be fixed.
It has melted.
The only way to fix it is to get a piece of the same carpet. Cut it and replace the spot. Use carpet glue and make sure the weave is going in the same direction.
How to you get an iron mark out of a carpet?

I am afraid you can't get the mark out, unless you replace that piece of carpet. When iron gets in contact with carpet, it burns the carpet fiber, which is irreversible. :(

How do I repair a burn on car carpet?

Yes, it can be repaired. As someone said, go the the closet and scrape or cut off some of the pile with scissors or a razor and glue it to the burned spot. I did it and you'd have to get down on your knees and look awfully close to see it and then you'd have to know where to look. My brother is in the carpet business and he gave me this tip.

Is there any way to get a surface burn mark out of a flat carpet? It did not burn a hole, but the surface is still noticeable. Thanks.

You can't repair it. Carefully lift the fibers and give it a haircut, then brush well, should look pretty good, and only you will know where it is. (07/28/2009)
