    Hi
    I have recently bought a small flat and have found it freezing every morning.
    I've noticed that sealing where the ceiling-to-floor window joins carpet is becoming loose and broken (picture attached), and a cold wind from outside was coming into the bedroom through a small gap.
    Is there any way to re-seal this joint? I've placed a peice of toilet paper to fill the gap for now but I'm wondering if there is a particular silicone or sealer that can be safely placed.

    Thank you

    It should be anti-mould sealant, so that will likely mean a silicone type.

    Are they safe for the carpet?
