Means of Improving Carpet Fading Problem


 
Home Improvement,Fashion & Cosmetics,Family & Parenting
When floors and furnishings are becoming faded due to sunlight, you can control the fading by blocking the sun with shades or curtains, but then, of course, you’ll lose the natural light.

Fading is caused by ultraviolet light, heat, and visible light from the sun. Overhangs, awnings, and shade trees can help, but the best solution is to apply window film tints that are designed to block UV rays, reflect heat, and slightly reduce visible light.

Sold in rolls at home improvement centers, window film tint is a thin, plastic-like material. It is easy to apply to the inside surfaces of windows, using a soapy solution of water (directions come with the film).

Choose reflective low-e films to cut back on UV rays and heat; beware of the darker films—with these, you’ll sacrifice natural light.

All you need is hot water and salt. The salt brightens faded fiber and guards against further discoloration. Some suggest that ammonia is a necessary ingredient. It's possible that that would yield an even more impressive result, but this solution worked well too, and without being harmful to pets and children (and to all of us really!).

I was thrilled to find out that the process not only brightened my carpets and will guard against further fading but it also took care of some minor stains. I'm going to add this one to my Spring Cleaning list for next year:

Over the years, I'm sure you've moved a table or some furniture and have been left with a bright piece of carpet where you can easily see that the rest of the carpet has faded drastically, the table helping to preserve the carpet underneath it. You can't stop fading completely but there are ways to reduce the effects significantly. The main cause of fading is UV rays or ultra-violet rays which come from the sun. It's these rays that can cause skin cancer and these are just as damaging to your furnishings, in fact UV rays cause around 40% of fading. The sun is by far the biggest cause of fading as the solar heat causes a further 25% of fading whilst the natural light causes another 25%. This means that the sun causes 90% of the effects of fading through ultra violet, infra red and natural light. This leaves a further 10%; this is made up of a number of things such as artificial light and natural gasses that's floating around.

So what can we do to stop or slow down the effects of fading. We can't do much about artificial lights and gasses but, as they only cause a small proportion of the effects of fading, they're not too important. The main thing to stop is the sun and the biggest suntrap is the windows. There's a great way to stop this and that is window film, a good quality clear window film will stop 99% of UV, whilst a tinted film can also stop over 80% of solar heat and glare (natural light). This means that you can really effect the speed at which your furniture fades and in a few years time when you decide to put that table in a new spot, this time that big block of bright un-faded carpet isn't there, or at least is nowhere near as noticeable as it was.
