First thing to figure out is what carpet you will provide for patchwork. Hopefully, you have some leftovers from original installation. If not, that’s okay.
Carpet can be taken from anywhere you will not miss it, which is usually an area like the back of a closet. A bare spot will be left where carpet is taken from. If you can not leave a bare spot anywhere, that’s okay too.
Luckily, most carpet stores sell carpet remnants nowadays. If your damaged area is small, you might be able to find a large carpet sample piece to use. About a couple inches of overhang on each side of the damaged area is needed in order to cut in the undamaged carpet nice and tight. Sometimes more than one remnant can be used per damaged area, but those tiny carpet samples given out can not be used to build a remnant.
If you can’t find a remnant good enough to use directly in your damaged area, you are still in luck. Get something good enough to perform a swap with. Some folks opt to do this anyway to get best matching patch possible.
