Does the carpet have to be replaced? Does the end-user have to be inconvenienced because they have to go through the mess of tearing out the old carpet and installing the new one?

When there are tufts higher or lower than the surrounding carpet surface, this technique can be used to bring them to the same level. Shearing is part of the manufacturing process and has been adapted to do in the field.
Lighter or darker colored bands typically from roll crush can be corrected using live steam. The thing to remember that live steam is much hotter than truck-mounted steam and required to reorient the pile surface.
