As we come to the end of another year, we often reflect on what the past year has brought us. For many companies, it has brought a number of challenges and one is to keep the building clean and sanitized due to the COIVD-19 pandemic. Along with this challenge, this year has also brought a lot of bleach spots. Commercial and public settings require proper sanitizing, which involves cleaning products that contain bleach. Bleach will kill viruses, bacteria and more. Either when using a professional cleaning service or handling your own sanitizing method, bleach is constantly dripping onto the carpets, leaving behind bleach spots. Don’t let bleach spots put a shadow on the upcoming year. Bleach spots can be repaired. Carpet Dye-Tech will share how we can repair bleach spots in any commercial or public setting.
Bleach in Coronavirus Cleaning Products
To ensure that a commercial or public setting is clean and any trace of the COVID-19 virus is gone, a strong sanitizer is used. In most sanitizers, one of the primary components is bleach. If bleach isn’t used directly, then often a strong sanitizer with bleach in it is used. While cleaning, it is common for these cleaning agents to drip and fall onto the carpet. As many people well know, bleach will remove the color out of the carpet leaving behind bleach spots sprinkled across the carpets. When bleach spots happen they can be repaired. When repairing bleach spots there are a number of steps involved.
Bleach Spot Neutralizer
One of the first steps is to clean the bleach spot site. When cleaning the site it is important to remove any dirt or grime near the bleach spot. However, that is not all. Bleach spots must be cleaned with a bleach neutralizer. Bleach is a chemical that remains active even after a long period of time. A bleach neutralizer will deactivate the bleach in the carpet which makes repair far more possible.
Professional Carpet Dyeing for Bleach Spots
Once the site is clean and the bleach neutralized, the bleach spot will need to be redyed. Redyeing bleach spots is no simple task as the carpet dye technician will need to create a dye that will match the rest of the carpet. Carpet dye colors are not premixed and those that are will never match your carpet. Pre-made dyes never perfectly match. This is because the manufacturer that made the carpet never sells their dyes to the public and each company uses their own unique blend of dyes. Due to the fact you will never buy the actual dyes used for the carpet, a carpet dye technician must make the dye by hand. They do this by combining the right amounts of the three primary colors; red, blue, and yellow together. Once the dye formula is ready they will slowly add the dye to the carpet in small applications of dye at a time to prevent over dyeing the site. The dyes are blended into the carpet layers a little at a time until the bleach spot is repaired. Bleach spots can be repaired very quickly and effectively.
