Bleach spots are considered one of the worst types of blemishes to occur on carpets. Obviously, a bleach spot isn’t like a stain, in fact it is the opposite of a stain. A bleach spot is the absence of color in the carpet. When bleach spots occur they cannot be washed out or simply removed. Nevertheless, a bleach spot can be repaired. The repair often takes a number of different steps. One of the more difficult challenges when repairing bleach spots takes place during the dyeing process. Matching the repairs with the rest of the carpet can be very tricky. Dye Pro Carpet Dyeing & Restoration will share how a professional repairs bleach spots properly.
Need to Restore Color to Bleach Spot
When a bleaching agent makes contact with a carpet, in a short period of time, the bleach will break down the dye. Eventually the bleach will break down the dye compound until all pigment is gone. The pale spot left behind is the carpet’s natural coloring. When carpets are manufactured, they are dyed, except for synthetic carpets which are made from a pre-colored material. Natural fibers are dyed which means bleach can strip the dye out. When a bleach spot occurs, basically you will need to replace the missing dye. The concept of repairing bleach is simple. However, there are a number of steps that must be properly done to ensure proper repair.
