How to Fix Bleach Spots on Carpet

To understand how to fix bleach spots on carpet, the first thing we must understand is what bleach is. Bleach is an active chemical called sodium hypochlorite that is used to remove color from or to sanitize materials. Since bleach is an active chemical, we must first neutralize the bleach or sodium hypochlorite before attempting to restore the color to, in this case, the carpet or oriental rug. Only highly trained professional and certified carpet dye experts should attempt this. Once the bleach has been neutralized, we will create a custom color dye formula to very intricately add back to the carpet fibers with color loss. The Carpet Chemist offers with each bleach spot dyeing repair, a 100% unlimited unconditional lifetime labor guarantee. We guarantee that our dyes will never bleed or fade and that they are immediately colorfast and permanent for the life of the carpet. Our dyes are 100% safe and eco-friendly and will not harm your children or pets. Our dyes are also odorless. Find out what customers are saying about our cutting-edge process and five-star service!

What not to do if you spill bleach

If you have a bleach spill on your carpet or oriental rug, PLEASE do not do anything to it. Water will not neutralize the bleach. Vinegar will not neutralize the bleach. Dish liquid or any of the chemicals under your kitchen sink will not neutralize the bleach. Adding one or more of these things, with the exception of water, will only add to the problem, which adds to the amount of time and effort needed to neutralize and dye the bleach spot, which increases the cost to restore the color in your carpet.

Advantages of Carpet Dyeing

Quality carpet that is regularly vacuumed and cleaned will give you years of service. During that time, styles will change and so will your taste in furnishings and décor. Until the development of the Color Cue dyeing system, there was no easy and inexpensive way to change your carpet. The only choice was to pull up the old but serviceable carpet and replace it with new carpet, pad and tack strips. Each year, redecorating generates millions of square yards of unnecessary landfill waste. Carpet dyeing and coloring by the Carpet Chemist provides an alternative that is faster, less expensive and better for the environment. Other advantages of our dyeing processes include:

  • Colorfast dyes that are odorless, permanent and completely safe for kids and pets.
  • Color matching to restore discolored areas or to coordinate with a new design.
  • Updated or restored look that takes only a few hours and generates no waste.
  • Savings of 60% to 75% over carpet replacement.

Our Carpet Dyeing Process

I know what you’re thinking. “Holy smokes! I could do that. No problem. I just need to get some dye stuff and squirt it with one of those needle things!” If it were only that easy. Most people instinctively grab whatever they can find underneath the kitchen sink or laundry room and start pouring heaps of random cleaning chemicals all over the bleach spills on carpet, hoping it will magically disappear. There are actually several steps that need to take place before dyeing can even occur. Here’s what we do:

  • Determine carpet fiber type. Fiber identification is always the first step because not all carpet types can be dyed.
  • Test the pH levels of the spot. As stated previously, most people dump heaps of cleaning products onto bleach spills because they dont know how to repair bleach spots on carpet. The dye sites must be free of any chemicals or other residues before anything else can take place.
  • Neutralize the bleach. Bleach is still active until it is neutralized. Fresh bleach is extremely difficult to neutralize, so it’s best to wait at least a week after the spill has occurred to begin color repair. If you don’t have a week, that’s OK. It can still be done, it’s just much more time consuming.
  • Extract. The bleach neutralizer must be extracted before any dyeing takes place.
  • Create a custom dye formula. In order to know how to create your custom dye formula, you’ll need to have a pretty good understanding of color theory and color loss. I won’t get into all that right now as it would take an enormous amount of time.
  • Dye affected areas only. Forget what you’ve seen on YouTube or Google about crayons or pastels or coffee grounds or any other ridiculous nonsense. Our dyes are the best in the world. Guaranteed!

We use a scientific approach and industry-leading techniques to deliver carpet dyeing and coloring results that will WOW you.
