A good carpet cleaning company will have the skill to do many types of carpet repairs. Cigarette burns are a relatively easy repair to do, only taking a few minutes.

The first step to repairing these types of burn is to cut out the burns all the way to the backing of the carpet.

The second step is the replacing of the fibers with fresh carpet usually from a closet. These fibers are then carefully glued to the backing of the carpet making the burn disappear.
