    Mine is hit too. I don't think there is a fix for it. MOST carpet gets trampled within 3 years.
    Boatless at the moment. Looking for a 24-25' V

    Pyro had a good idea. I tried yesterday, and it helped. Compressed air! It cleans and fluffed it up

    The wire brush method works great as long as your carpert is not that thick. I used a sheading brush that you use on you dog to get the excess hair out. It worked great on my bass boat carpet, but thicker pile would not work as well.

    Believe it or not, I have used a hair brush, that worked quite well. A wire brush is a little to rigid for me....Mike

    This is it! A good truckmount steam cleaning. A wire brush will split the fibers and it will flatten out even easier.

    I think brushing would damage the carpet. you can do vacuuming. I would suggest you to consult with a expert.

    my neighbor owns a carpet cleaning business, told me to use downy fabric softner. spray it on liberally with a garden sprayer, let it soak awhile, brush with a stiff dog brush, and wash it out. tried it and did great!

    50/50 vinegar and water will soften it up. I wipe my gelcoat down with this solution each time I take it out of the water and periodically spray down the carpet.

    I would use a brush but not wire brush, seems overkill. A nylon brush of some sort, they are available from many car care products companies along with a carpet cleaner. I used Adam's carpet and upholstery cleaner on my car with their brush and it worked well. Will try it on the boat in the spring. A generic brush with strong bristles would work and some people even dilute vinegar as a cleaner.

    I have used a pressure washer, just stay back and keep it fairly low as not to tear the carpet. I does revive it with some good carpet cleaner.
