What Causes Bleach Spots?
To understand the process of bleach spot repairs it helps to have the basic understanding of how bleach spots occur. A bleach spot is the result of a bleach agent or chemical that was exposed to the carpet. A bleaching agent affects the dye used to color the carpet by breaking them down until the color dissipates away. Once the dye has been broken down this way, the carpet will have permanently lost its color. In order to repair a bleach spot the carpet will need to be dyed to restore the color in the carpet.
How Do You Neutralize a Bleach Spot on Carpet?
When repairing a bleach spot and in order to ensure the new dyes bond with the carpet, the bleach that caused the spot must be neutralized. Bleach can be reactivate in the carpet when applying the dye. Bleach can also remain dormant for long periods of time. This is why it is important the bleach spot site is clean and treated with a bleach neutralizer before you begin dyeing the carpets. Once the site has been cleaned and the bleach neutralized, the carpet is ready to be dyed.
Perfect Carpet Dye Match

Manufacturers all use their own custom dye formulas that will not match other manufacturers. Additionally, the carpet manufacturers do not sell their dyes. The answer is simple. You mix your own dye to create an exact matching formula. Even though this is a simple concept, it is not easy. There is a lot of training that is required to get a perfectly matched dye color. This is where a professional is indispensable. A professional carpet dyeing specialist can accurately mix the right dyes together to create a matching dye color for your carpets.
Carpet Dyeing Process
Once the dye is mixed and ready, the carpet dye specialist will apply the dye in small quantities to ensure the dye is properly worked into the carpets. Once the dye has been applied, the site only needs to dry and the repairs are complete. Bleach spot repairs are permanent which allows the commercial center to freely clean their carpets without fear of washing out the dye.
