In many homes and commercial settings, you will find carpet and rugs. Carpet and rugs are great elements and it doesn’t matter where they are used. Carpets provide a colorful and soft surface. Carpets also act as insulation which improves energy efficiency and absorbs sounds making the space quieter. Rugs do much of the same thing. However, rugs also provide beauty and enhance the building’s style and design. Some rugs are precious pieces of art. Antique, Oriental, and Persian rugs are priceless pieces that demand that they are properly cared for. For those who have carpet, rugs or both, you may wonder if there is a way to maintain and preserve them. Yes, there is! Carpet Dye-Tech would like to share how carpet dyeing can help extend the life and beauty of you carpets and rugs.
How to Extend the Life of Carpet & Rugs
When you have rugs and carpets it is natural to want to care for them and ensure they last a very long time. Unfortunately, nothing lasts forever. However, you can certainly extend the life of your carpet and rugs. The first step is proper care. Both carpet and rugs require similar types of care. Both carpet and rugs greatly benefit from being vacuumed. Vacuuming both carpet and rugs removes all of the dirt, pollen and other common contaminates. Along with regular vacuuming, carpets and rugs need to be deep cleaned every few months. When spills or stains occur they need to be quickly cleaned. This is the basic care that will help extend the life of your carpet or rugs. However, while spot cleaning spills, vacuuming and having regular cleaning will extend the life and condition of the carpet and rugs, it will not always prevent aesthetic problems. Both carpet and rugs will fade with time or due to exposure. Carpet and rugs will also get bleach spots and even discoloration. Even though carpet and rugs will lose their aesthetic appeal, they can be recovered with carpet and rug dyeing. Carpet and rugs can have their color and beauty restored with dyeing restoration services which extends not just the life but the beauty of the carpets and rugs.
How Carpet & Rug Dyeing Works
Carpet and rug dyeing use similar methods to help restore their color. When carpet and rugs develop fading, discoloration or bleach spots, these issues affect the color or dye in the carpet or rug. To extend the life of carpet and rugs, often you need to correct the dye or color. Sometimes the carpet and rug will need to be cleaned before the dyeing process. Cleaning the carpet or rug will ensure that nothing interferes with the dyeing process. An accurate recreation of the carpet or rug dye color will be made and then carefully applied to the fibers. The dyes will bind to the fibers and will not bleed out or run the next time the carpet or rugs are cleaned. The dyes are permanent, but they will break down over time just like the previous dyes used to color the carpet and rugs. However, the dye will last at least 10 years before it will begin to fade, ensuring that you extend the life of your carpet and rugs.
