It happens. Someone spills bleach on the carpet, or uses something they shouldn’t to try to remove a stain and now you’re left with a white spot on your carpet – right in the middle of the room.
So now, you have a couple of choices. You can buy a rug and put it over the spots. You can rearrange your furniture to hide it. Or, you can call us to have the color restored!
We can professionally restore the color to bleached out spots on your carpet or Oriental rugs.
Accent American can even restore a rug that has faded due to age by re-applying the background color as seen in the pictures below.
Color repair is a highly specialized service, and it takes lots of training and practice to get it right.
Most people think for color repair, you can just buy green dye to match your shade and put it on the bleach spot. Not true. First, you have to neutralize the chemical that caused the bleach spot, so you need knowledge of chemistry to determine what type of neutralizer to use.
Then, you have to determine what color or colors needs to be added to the spot to bring back the original color. This is where it gets tricky. There are 3 primary colors used in color repair service – red, yellow and blue. Combinations of these three colors make up every color in the spectrum. To get green, you mix yellow and blue, right? But in color repair, you have to know how much blue and yellow, and there may even be a little red in there.
It’s an exact science, and the team at Accent American has the knowledge and training to do it right. So if you need color repair service, call 813-621-6015.
