=> Removing Indentations - Cover the dent with a damp cloth and
then hold a hot steam iron over the area. Fluff the carpet with
your fingers as the fibers cool.


=> Removing Gum - Freeze the gum with an ice cube. Then scrape it off with a razor blade or blunt knife, cutting the gum from the carpet without damaging it.


=> Removing Wax - Place a sturdy paper towel over the wax area
and apply heat with an iron set to a medium heat, no steam. The
wax should melt and absorb into the paper towel. Repeat as
necessary.

For the candle wax, I used an iron and paper bags instead of paper towels. For the indentations, I just put an ice cube on them, go back to it when it's melted and rustle up the rug.
