Carpets are prone to bleach spots. Wool and nylon carpets are dyed, so when a bleaching agent contacts the dye they will begin to dissipate. Within a short period of time, the carpet will have a permanent pale spot. When bleach spots effect your carpet, know they can be repaired with professional carpet dyeing service. Dye Pro Carpet Dyeing & Restoration will share more about bleach spots and how they are repaired.
What are White or Yellow Bleach Spots on Carpet?
Bleach spots are the absence of dye in the carpet. Bleach spots occur when a bleaching agent spills or is accidentally used on the carpet. During this time of COVID-19, commercial buildings are required to be cleaned daily. As many sanitizers contain bleach, bleach spots are becoming more common than ever. When bleach spots occur on the carpet, they can be repaired. This is done by dyeing over the bleach spot. Repairing a bleach spot is no simple task. To ensure the bleach spot matches the rest of the carpet perfectly, it is highly recommended to seek out a professional carpet dyeing professional.
DIY VS Professional Bleach Spot Repairs
There are many DIY bleach spot repairs methods and kits that you can buy online. However, they don’t work well and the repairs never look great. This is because there is no kit that has the perfect dye color. Manufacturers use their own custom dyes and they do not sell the dyes either. This is where a professional carpet dye technician is essential. Not only to ensure the repair matches but that each step is properly executed.
Does a Bleach Spot Need to Be Neutralized?
The first step of bleach spot repair is to determine if the bleach spot will require more bleaching. If some color has remained in the carpet it has discolored, the bleach spots will need to be bleached out more to remove all of the pigment in the carpet. If the bleach spots need to be bleached out completely, that will be the first step. The next step is to clean the bleach site. When cleaning the bleach spot, the site will need to be treated with a bleach neutralizer. Bleach can remain active on the carpet, preventing the area to be properly repaired. After the bleach has been neutralized, the bleach spot will be repaired with the dyes.
Perfect Carpet Dye Color Matching
Since you cannot buy the manufacturers dyes, the carpet dye technician will make the dyes on site. The carpet dye technician will mix three primary color which are red, yellow, and blue dyes to create the correct dye formula. The dye must match the rest of the carpet perfectly to ensure accurate repairs. Once the dye formula has been prepared, it is applied to the carpet. The dye is applied in small quantities to prevent over dyeing the bleach spots. Over dyeing the bleach spots will cause the repairs to look darker than the rest of the carpet. The dye must be applied slowly and blended into the carpet until the repairs look perfect.
