Burn Mark on Carpet

Burn Mark on Carpet


  • Woven landing carpet, with a polypropylene cut pile, burgundy coloured and slight floral pattern.

Problem areas

  • Visible burn mark on carpet.
  • The burn mark is situated at the top of the stairs approximately two feet from the top step.

Possible Causes

  • The above burn mark has the shape and size of a typical domestic iron.


  • The heat from the iron has melted the synthetic pile to the base of the fibre.

Suggested remedial action

  • Because the carpet pile is melted to the base and there are no spare off-cuts, no repairs can be successfully carried out.
  • It would seem the only option available is to replace this area of carpet.
