In the flooring and carpet industry, color restoration is a skill and requires technical expertise as well as an eye for color. If you think that ‘green’ is simply ‘green’, you are in for a surprise! “Green” is not green, but rather it is a combination of various hues of yellow and blue. All hues on the spectrum are based on the three primaries – red, yellow, and blue. One has to know how to mix and blend these shades perfectly in order to match them to a rug or carpet that has bleached or faded with time or due to a chemical interaction.
At Accent American, we can restore faded or bleached out areas on carpeting and Oriental rugs in both residential and commercial settings in Tampa. You do not want to trust just anyone with the fate of your flooring, and we guarantee that our powerful, stain-removing techniques will help make your home or office look as good as new, quickly.
Color Restoration 101
Color restoration is an art as much as it is a science. There are various materials and chemicals involved in the process, and one misstep could ruin the carpeting forever. DIY dyeing can be tempting — after all, it is just that one little spot, right? Finding the perfect color to match the surrounding fibers takes a trained eye. With just red, blue, and yellow dye, you can create an entire rainbow of colors with infinite different shades and hues.
Bleach spots or other chemical spills have to be thoroughly neutralized before any color restoration, or it will not “take” properly. There are many household culprits for floor bleaching and stains, like medications, coffee, pets, cleaning supplies, and even substances tracked into the home on the bottoms of shoes from walking around in Tampa.
Why Color Restoration Matters
There are many reasons why someone may find they need color restoration for their carpets and rugs in Tampa. Consider the assistance of a professional if your carpeting has been a victim of:
- Fading from the sun
- Chemical spills
- Pet stains
- Shading from foot traffic
Any of these can ruin the look of an otherwise stunning carpet, and if you have an heirloom or a beloved piece that you want to keep looking as good as new forever, then color restoration is exactly what you need. Instead of replacing the entire room because of that one red wine stain from your Christmas party last year, you can use professional services to make the stain disappear.
