Does Bleach Weaken Color of Carpet?
Bleach spots occur when a bleaching agent breaks down the dye compound causing the color to dissipate. When a cleaning chemical that contains a bleaching agent is either accidentally spilled or used on the carpet, it will cause bleach spots. There are various levels of bleach spots. When there is no color left in the carpet and there is only a whitish spot on the carpet, severe bleaching occurred. Minor levels of bleaching will not cause all of the color to fade from the carpet. Some pigment can remain and cause a slight or major discoloration. Depending on the level of bleaching, the repair for the bleach spot can vary.
