Carpet Spot Dyeing
Large carpet stains can be difficult to remove and often make a homeowner self-conscious about their flooring. Covering up carpet stains is a hassle, so Love Cleaning offers spot dyeing to help cover up those pesky stains for good. Spot dyeing essentially takes your carpet back to its original color instead of working to remove the stain. Some bleached carpet spots, pet urine spots, or paint spills can not be removed, so spot dyeing helps the carpet to look more natural.
Spot dyeing helps to avoid repairing or replacing the carpet by just dying the carpet fibers. Paying a large chunk of money to replace all of your carpet is frustrating, so spot dyeing can give you a new carpet look, without the cost.
Benefits Of Spot Dyeing Carpet
The benefits of spot dyeing are what draw homeowners and businesses to utilize our services. One of the main benefits is that the dye is more permanent than other fixes or coverups. If you cover the stain with furniture, when you move the furniture or need more space, the stain is still prominent. Carpet patching also doesn’t last as long ad directly dyeing the carpet fibers and can be hard to blend in.
The carpet is prone to fading over time, especially when it is exposed to UV rays. Spot dyeing is resistant to fading so once a spot is dyed, it won’t begin to fade and make the spot noticeable again.
After carpet spot dyeing you can walk on your carpet immediately. The fast-drying dyes help to improve your carpet and avoid color bleeding. This means that homeowners can get back to normal activities as soon as possible and not worry about dye transfer to skin or other furniture.
Comparing Carpet Dye Pens And Fabric Dyes
Two popular options for spot dyeing your carpet are dye pens that are made specifically for carpet and generic fabric dyes. Dye pens are usually best for small spots or for bleach spots, you are trying to mask. The pen will need to be heated in boiling water and then you can blot the dye onto the carpet with a cotton swap. You will need to let the spot dry for 12 hours before touching it.
Fabric dyes can be a little hard to match to the original color of the carpet, but it comes in multiple colors that can be mixed to find the right shade. You can test the dye on a scrap of fabric before applying it to the carpet. Apply the dye with a cotton swab or a lint-free cloth dipped lightly into the liquid dye and then dabbed onto the carpet. Fabric dye will work best for natural fiber carpets over synthetics.
