Bleach spots can occur on carpet anywhere. You will find bleach spots on commercial and residential properties. When bleach spots appear on the carpets, many people feel like their carpets are completely ruined. However, carpets that have bleach spots can be repaired by a professional carpet dyeing technician. For those who feel like their carpets are lost, Dye Pro Carpet Dyeing & Restoration will share how bleach spots are repaired.
Does a Bleach Spot Stain Carpet?
Bleach spots are not like your typical stains that can simply be washed away. A bleach spot is when a bleaching chemical interacts with the dyes in the carpet, breaking down the pigment until the dye is gone. Bleaching of the carpet’s dyes can vary, depending on the duration and amount of the bleaching exposure. For more mild exposure time, carpet dye may not be completely removed. Instead, it will have slight pigmentation that is still in the carpet. More intense exposure of the bleach will result in total pigment loss, leaving behind a pale spot on the carpets.
How to Get Rid of White Bleach Spots on Carpet
When repairing bleach spots, the carpet dye technician will need to determine how intense the bleaching was to see what steps are needed to repair the bleach spot. When all of the pigment has been lost, these bleach spots take less steps to repair. When there is still pigment in the carpets it is harder to repair as the remainder color in the carpets need to be removed. At times, further bleaching is done to remove all of the pigment in the carpet to provide a blank canvas which ensures the repair comes out perfectly. After bleaching (if needed) the next step is to clean the site of the bleach spot to prevent any contamination during the dyeing process. After the bleach spot has been cleaned, the next step is to accurately recreate the carpet’s dye formula. When it comes to repairing stains, one of the most challenging steps is to match the original dye formula to ensure the repair matches the rest of the carpet. A professional carpet dye technician is trained and specializes in the creation of dye formulas and can perfectly match the new dye with the dyes in the carpets. Once the dye is ready, the carpet dye technician will apply the dye into the carpet. A carpet dye technician uses various methods to apply the dye. The common method uses a spray bottle, syringe, or an air brush tool.
How Long Does Bleach Spot Repair Take?
When repairing bleach spots it can take as few as 30 minutes and as long as 3 to 4 hours depending on the condition of the bleach spot along with the size. Bleach spots, when repaired by a professional, will match perfectly and the carpet will once again look fresh, clean and free of bleach spots. When bleach spots occur, it is good to know they can be repaired. It is recommended to seek professional carpet dyeing services to help repair your bleach spots for the best results.
