What type of carpet is it?/Do you have access to other sections of carpet?... Im really not sure how, but i've heard of people just cutting squares of carpet out and replacing a damaged area, without it being noticeable. So if you have a friend or know of a room with a similar carpet, start ripping it up . Like i said, i really have no clue how this is done, only heard of it being done professionaly, definately check out some home improvement how to's.

I have about a dozen burns in my carpet. It's pretty simple- I have two giant area rugs I move when I smoke. When I drop a coal/spark, the spot gets covered when I put the rugs back.

Forget your deposit. They are going to repalce the carpet unless you have a very forgiving complex. Target sells nice area rugs for $20-$30 that are 6'x4. That will at least make it look okay until you move.

Just find a similar piece of carpet, buy a small section of it, cut out the affected areas with a knife, trace the cut out squares on the piece of new carpet, cut that out and glue it back in. You should invest in a cheap rug to put under your hookah table so if coals do fall, you dont have to pay to replace carpet. You also might want to look into getting a larger tray for your hookah

welcome to the club.I've used a razot blade to cut or thin them out.I also now use a large metal decorative plate to rest my shisha on. It has saved me more than afew burns.

I use the back side of my detachable computer case to rest my hookah on while I smoke. I accidentally knocked my hookah over a few weeks ago and dropped a few coals on the carpet, so I quickly picked them up and put them on the case... Long story short, the coals heat transferred through the case after a minute or so, and still left a burn mark. -.-

Recently part of my coal fell onto my basement carpet, and smelled it like 10 minutes later..haha. I'm thinking of cutting out a small section out from part of my basement and glueing it right onto the burnt part. Hopefully it will work if it does i would try it.

i did this once. it was only a small shallow burn due to my cat-like reflexes. at work we use very small sharp scissors and i used those to cut the burnt parts off. it ended up looking a tad shaggy, but not noticeable unless you knew the burn had been there.

I did the same thing to my carpet and this is the best answer I have seen on here yet. If you don't have any spare chunks of carpet around you can steal some small clippings from the corner of your carpet where it won't be seen. The best place to steal clippings from are from a corner under the moldings or inside a closet. Good luck!

In the future you might want to put a cheap carpet under your hookah. When you burn that one, you can just throw it away.
