Moving furniture around seems like a good idea until you see all the carpet dents left behind by the newly moved furniture. So how exactly do you get rid of furniture imprints on carpet? Believe it or not, it’s a pretty simple process if you follow these few steps for how to get rid of furniture imprints in carpet.
The first step is to moisten the imprint left behind by the furniture. You can use ice or a spray bottle, but the key is to use enough water to help the carpet fibers rebound. It’s best to give the carpet a few hours or even the night to soak up the water. Next, with the carpet damp, use a wide-toothed comb or a fork and start rubbing the dented spot of the carpet with this comb. This step will help to loosen the dented fibers and get them back to their original position.
Next, find a hairdryer and start drying the carpet while you continue to comb the fibers. Try and lift up the carpet while drying it, if possible. Continue doing this until the carpet is completely returned to normal. If not, you will want to let it soak in ice for another night, as the imprint may be too heavy for a few hours to fix.
