It's possible it can be fixed, but you'll have to decide how good of a job you want...you can potentially buy a dye kit and try to fix it yourself. If you go that route, just know that there is almost zero chance that it will match the color exactly and may still be rather obvious that something is wrong there. Another option is to call a carpet color repair specialist (yes, there is such a thing). A reputable pro will be able to either dye and blend it in a way that makes it far less obvious, or make an alternate suggestion if a color repair is not in your best interest. My best guess on the cost is probably $100-$200 or so, if they're able to do it, but it may vary depending on the size of the spots and where you're located. It would be worth it since the carpet is only a year old, IF they can guarantee the quality of the job.
