What Happened to Carpet if It Appeared Lighter than Before


 
Home Improvement,Fashion & Cosmetics,Current Affairs
Fading is a type of color loss. Fading will cause a carpet color to appear lighter than the original color in the affected areas. Fading is less obvious on very light colored carpets.

All carpet fades about 4% to 8% per year. This number is higher in the sunbelt. Even a severely faded or discolored carpet may look normal until the furniture is moved.

Fading is the gradual loss of color caused by sunlight or artificial light, atmospheric gases including ozone, nitrogen dioxide and hydrogen sulphide, cleaning and bleaching chemicals such as sodium hypochlorite, and other household and industrial products.

Carpet can be tested in laboratory fadeometers for results against fading agents. Dye stuff, hue or fiber can affect fading.

Fading can be the result of many causes.

Sunlight is the most common cause of fading. The dyer will examine the color closely for disparity and the pattern of the carpet if any and the path of the fading. Sunlight faded areas usually have less definition of shape than other types of color loss. In the case of sun fading, examination would reveal a noticeable difference in the color of the exposed surfaces and those surfaces not exposed to the light. The sun faded area does not usually have a consistent or equal color loss in the entire faded area. Where exposed to direct sun light, the carpet would exhibit the most severe fading where the sunlight is the most direct and is exposed more frequently such as in front of sliding glass doors. Anytime a window is facing east or west, there will be sun fading in the path of those windows.

Artificial Light

Halogen lights, UV tanning lamps, and some fluorescent lights will cause fading over time.

Fume Fading

Many household chemicals contribute to fume fading. The fumes of Chlorine bleach in laundry, kitchen and lavatory areas of the property can cause carpet color fading. Containers of dry pool or spa chlorine if not tightly closed will cause fume fading to nearby carpeted areas. Certain air fresheners, insecticides, cleaning chemicals, perfumes, medications and cosmetics can create fumes especially if in spray form can cause fume fading.

Chemical Reaction

Many common acne medications, medicated cosmetics and shampoos that contain benzoyl peroxide or other peroxides will cause color loss or fading.

Fading can be caused by some cleaning methods, even "professional" carpet cleaning. Usually harsh or improper chemicals that are used by the carpet cleaner. More so if the carpet is left with residues. Especially in the case of too frequent cleaning with high alkaline chemicals. Although the technology is available, most carpet cleaners don't check for after cleaning residue and don't rinse carpet thoroughly.
