Bleach Stain Repair
Bleach spots or bleach stains are a common issue we see on carpet in both residential and commercial settings. Bleach spots can happen from a number of things such as: bleach spills, toilet bowl cleaner, acne medication, lotions, or some other chemicals. They often leave an unsightly white, yellow, or orange-like stain that is permanent. The reason this happens is because the bleaching agent has removed color from the carpet and this cannot be fixed with cleaning alone. We can repair bleach spots from solid colored carpet to multi-colored and patterned carpet.
Do It Yourself Bleach Spot Repair
We insist that you resist the urge to go scouring the internet for a DIY bleach repair solution. We've seen everything from crayons, markers, and even tea or coffee being used to try to re-dye a bleached spot. Do it yourself attempts often become more expensive then simply calling us in the first place. The reason for this is, because now we have to deal with removing the substance that was used to attempt to dye the carpet which results in more time to fix it.
How We Repair Bleach Spots
The first step is we need to neutralize the bleach so that it doesn't continue having bleaching ability. Once we've neutralized the bleach we use color theory to mix up the necessary colors to bring your carpet back to the way it was before. Often times this requires us to add two or more colors back to the carpet to restore the color. In the video to the side or above, you can see how we mixed blue to bring the yellowish bleach stain back to green and then a hint of red to blend the tone into the existing carpet color.
Color Carpet Cleaning or Color Revival Carpet Cleaning is perfect for newer carpet. Unfortunately, some carpets wear faster than others and while professional carpet cleaning can remove the soil from the carpet. Once the carpet begins to wear the carpet fibers will reflect the light differently - especially on darker colored carpets. Maybe you have seen darker carpets that look lighter in the traffic areas? That is exactly what we're describing. Color cleaning allows us to add a small amount of dye during the cleaning process to help blend that traffic area in better.
As mentioned, color cleaning is perfect for newer carpet and is meant to be used if your carpet has only 5-8% color loss. If your carpet is a few years old and has significant fading in the traffic lanes then we recommend a full room dyeing which you can read about below.
Full Room Dyeing
There are many reasons why our clients choose to have our full room carpet dyeing service. For some, they picked out white or almost white and the realization that with 3 children and 2 dogs, that keeping it looking great has become quite the chore. Perhaps you've recently redecorated and now you want a darker carpet to help contrast your decor? No matter the reason, with our full room carpet dyeing service we can dye your carpet to darker shade.
Unlike our color clean service, full room dyeing completely restores the color in your carpet. Another large benefit many find with our full room dyeing service is that the cost is significantly less than the cost of replacement. The best part is that often it only takes slightly longer to dye than our normal carpet cleaning service. This means you can be back on it the same day.
