How to get bleach stains out of carpet?

This is one of the most asked questions about carpet damage, and the internet is full of improper information about how to remove these "stains".

 

The truth is, when carpet is exposed to bleach or a bleaching agent, it loses carpet color, because the dyes get bleached (think of how a colored shirt gets bleached when exposed to bleach). 

 

Therefore, the only way to restore bleached carpet, is to re dye the area by adding only the colors that have been removed by the chemical. Carpets are manufactured with acid dyes. 

 

Why Carpet Dyeing?

Carpet is expensive. Not only do you have to buy the carpet and pay to have it installed, but you are also paying with your time. It takes effort to find a perfect color, find a carpet store that carries the color, and put aside everything until the carpet is installed. Carpet dyeing is the best solution when carpets have been stained or faded. In addition to restoring the original carpet color, DyeBold can actually change the color of your carpets!
