When you discover bleach spots on your carpets, you will begin to look for ways to help hide the spot. Bleach spots can be very distracting, especially in a commercial environment. When you begin to seek for ways to repair the bleach spots, for the best result you will want to get a professional carpet dyeing service. A professional carpet dyeing service can provide perfect results and ensures the carpets are properly and permanently repaired. To better understand how a carpet dyeing specialist repairs bleach spots, Dye Pro Carpet Dyeing & Restoration will explain how bleach spots should properly be repaired.
Neutralize Bleach Spots on Carpet
When repairing a bleach spot you will come across a lot of crazy methods online. None of these methods will properly repair the bleach spot. This is because most of these online methods never address the main problem, which is the bleach. Bleach can remain dormant in the carpet, and when saturated, it becomes active again. Bleach can remain dormant for a long period of time. This is why it is very important to neutralize the bleach in the carpet first. A bleach neutralizer is applied to the bleach spot. This way the dye can bind to the carpet fiber. Often this step is skipped which is why the bleach spot never gets repaired. A professional will ensure the bleach spot site is clean and the bleach is neutralized first.
Perfect Carpet Dye Match to Surrounding Color
The next step is getting a matching dye color to apply to the carpet. This may seem simple. However, this is not always the case. Some people will try to use markers or crayons and even hair dye to color in the carpet. However, none of these dyeing options are permanent or will match the rest of the carpet. You will need to use a carpet dye and these dyes are mixed on site. There is no other way to perfectly match the carpet color. You may find carpet dye color online, however even those will not match your carpet. This is because the dye each carpet manufacture uses is their own unique dye mixture and they do not sell these dyes either. This is where a carpet dye specialist is so essential. They have the training and understanding of how to create dye colors to match the carpet perfectly. Often they use red, blue and yellow dye colors in the proper proportions to create the color of your carpets.
Apply Dye to a Carpet
Once the dye formula has been mixed, it can now be applied to the carpet. Even this step requires a steady hand. It is important to apply the right amount of dye and make sure it binds to the carpet fibers. Too much or too little will result in the repair looking mismatched. To ensure the repair matches the rest of the carpet, small amounts of dye is applied and blended into the carpet until the repair looks perfect.
