Can Carpet Dyeing Remove Bleach Spots?
Bleach spots can be repaired. Repairing bleach spots on cruise ships helps to restore the ship’s beauty as well as prevent the need for carpet replacements. Bleach repair may vary depending on the bleach spot. Bleach spots, depending on its concentration, can cause varying levels of distortion. In heavy concentration of the bleaching chemical, bleach spots will be pale or white with no pigment in the carpet at all. In smaller concentrations, the bleach spot will appear as a different color or lighter than its original color. In cases of lighter concentration of the bleaching agent, the bleach spot in order to be repaired will need to be completely bleached out. The carpet dye technician will bleach out the remaining pigment to provide a fresh start. The carpet dye technician will then clean the site to ensure the dyeing process isn’t impeded. The carpet dye technician will then develop a dye formula to match the rest of the carpet’s color. For situations where the bleach spot was of a higher concentration and there was no pigment remaining in the carpet, the carpet dye technician will clean and dye the site. Dyeing the carpet is complex as the dye technician must apply the right amount of dye to match the rest of the carpet. The carpet mustn’t get over dyed either, which can result in a dark spot on the carpet. The carpet dye technician will apply small layers of dye at a time. They will slowly blend and add more dye until the color matches perfectly.
