Most Effective Tricks on Handling Carpet Repair of Bleached Portion

Home Improvement,Crafts
Bleach staining is one of the most common afflictions of carpets today. Regardless of extant misconceptions, the majority of carpet bleach stains are usually correctable! As long as there is viable fiber, color can be re-introduced.

A bleach stain should always be dyed first. If this should fail, which is rare, then plugging or cutting a section and replacing it should be performed. All shades and colors of carpet on the market today are composed by combining a different ratio of only three primary colors. All it takes is a slight amount of any one of these colors missing to produce a partial bleach stain. This occurance is very frequent in the off white and lighter colored carpets popular today.

Dyeing Bleached Area

If the fibers have not been degraded to the point of powdering, they can usually be redyed to blend into the entire carpet. Some believe that bleach destroys the dye sites of the fiber. This may be true to a degree. But to destroy all the sites would mean destroying the entire fiber. Nylon and wool, which constitute most carpets today, have dye sites throughout their entire construction. If there is any fiber at all, it is usually dyeable! Color correctability of these are based upon the individual situation. There are procedures that have applicability to all of these fibers--even polypropylene! However, feasibility of color correction is unique to each situation.

Often a question is asked as to the permanency of the correction. The material used is as permanent as in the original construction. The correctional dyes employed are the same dyes used by the mills. The only factor that can be a problem, is the completeness of the bleach neutralization process. All the bleach in the carpet must be neutralized! If it isn't, re-bleaching can occur. The amount of bleach and/or the newness of the bleach can be the determining factor as to the cost feasibility of correction.

The types of bleaches that cause the most problems are those containing chlorine. Usually, chlorine based household or swimming pool bleaches are the offenders. The peroxide bleaches, as in ache and other medications, are also a common problem

Replacing Bleached Area

Bleach stains or faded, discolored spots on your carpet cannot be fixed by cleaning. Usually, the only way to fix an unsightly bleach stain or other discoloration is to replace that portion of the carpet.

If you don't have any carpet remnants left from your carpet installation, you may be able to remove a large enough piece from an obscure area of carpet, such as the back corner of a closet. It is important that the carpet be a nearly exact match in order for the repair to look as seamless as possible.

Steps to follow:

Measure off the area you need to replace, and with the carpet cutting tool, carefully cut out the damaged section of carpet. Using the exact measurements, cut your carpet remnant to fit. (NOTE: If you are using the Carpet Cookie Cutter, the sections will automatically be the same size, no measurements are necessary) Peel and stick the self-adhesive carpet tape to the section where the carpet patch was removed. Place the new piece of carpet on the tape and press down firmly. Using a wide tooth comb, gently comb the fibers of the new patch so they blend in with the existing carpet.
