I had Berber carpeting installed in my home in December from Home Depot. Today while I was vacuuming, a piece of it got caught in the vacuum and susequently I have about 12 inches of a row or two of the carpet unraveled. This is in a high traffic area, and I do not think it is at a seam. ( At least I cannot feel a seam)I did have the vacuum set at the lowest setting which may have created the problem. It is a new vacuum cleaner, first time I have used it.

My dilemma is , can this be fixed, and if so how? Am I better off to try to fix myself, or do I have some recourse in going through Home Depot?

Thanks in advance for any help.

I'm not sure of a good way to patch the area but a good way to stop it from happening again is to "super glue" the loose end to the other carpet strands.
