Bleach spots are a common problem on most carpets. Bleach spots are even more common than normal as many household and commercial settings undergo intense cleaning to combat the COVID-19 virus. Intense cleaners are used to kill viruses and germs. Many of the cleaners used contain high amounts of bleach or is straight bleach, which is the primary culprit for bleach spots. When bleach spots develop on the carpets, they can become very distracting and ruin the aesthetics of the carpet. Carpet Dye-Tech would like to go deeper into how bleach spots form and how they are repaired.
What are Carpet Bleach Spots?
Bleach spots are not at all a stain, even though many people refer to them as stains. Stains are discolored spots on the carpet due to contamination. A bleach spot is when color has been removed from the carpet. Bleaching agents are found in many household cleaners. When a bleaching agent comes in contact with the carpet, the dyes will quickly break down and the color will dissipate, leaving the natural color of the carpet’s fibers showing through. Carpets are naturally a whitish cream color, and when they are made, they are dyed. The dyes in the carpet are vulnerable to bleach. As a result, bleach spots are an unfortunate, but common problem.
Carpet Dye to Fix Discolored Bleach Spots on Carpets
As many people well know, you cannot wash out a bleach spot like you can a stain. When bleach spots develop on the carpet, there is little that can be done. Bleach spot repair is the only remedy to this problem. Bleach spots can be repaired by restoring the color back into the carpet. There are many ways to repair a bleach spot.
