Carpet Discoloration in Classrooms
When you talk about carpet found in schools, some of the common wear on the carpet is from high foot traffic and of course, stains. Often school classrooms also feature many large windows. If they face the direction of the sun, some of the carpet is exposed to sunlight where the UV rays can cause the carpet’s color to fade. Fortunately, carpet can be recovered after discolorations, fading and stains with carpet dyeing services.
Does Carpet Dyeing Work?
There are many ways carpet dyeing can help maintain and extend the life of the carpet in schools. The carpet can be cleaned and dyed to restore the carpet’s color. Solid color carpet and even multi colored carpet can be dyed back to their original color, even after fading or discolorations. Stains can also be dyed over to remove the appearance of permanent stains including bleach spots. Carpet can also be dyed an entirely new color. Often school administrators wish to have a darker colored carpet which helps reduce the appearance of high traffic patterns and stains that frequently occur within classrooms.
Carpet Dyeing Methods Dye Contractors Use
