Fixing Carpet Bleach and Chemical Stains

by Guest on Apr 27, 2012

The number and variety of chemical substances that can cause carpet spots and carpet stains boggle the mind. Chlorine bleaches, swimming pool chemicals, stomach acid, toilet bowl cleaners, drain cleaners, oven cleaners, urine, insecticides, fertilizers, and even certain types of medication and cosmetic aids can damage carpets and render ordinary stain removal methods ineffective.

When you're faced with unsightly bleach stains and carpet spots, what are your options? Many people feel that their only option is to replace the carpet in their home, which is a very expensive proposition. For 1,500 square feet, the cost of buying and installing carpeting can cost $8,000 or more. If you have some leftover original carpet, you can hire a professional to cut out the carpet spots and insert plugs of leftover carpet. This is also expensive, and will run several hundred dollars. You can opt for professional carpet dyeing, but that can also cost many hundreds of dollars.

Many people never consider an effective and inexpensive option for repairing bleach stains and carpet spots: do-it-yourself carpet dye. A do-it-yourself carpet dye kit is cost-effective and can produce terrific results with very little effort. And, since no appointments are needed and you don't have to take time off of work, there's very little hassle involved in undertaking stain removal yourself.

Another less expensive solution is to use a marker to fill in small spaces.  The maker must match the color of the flooring almost exactly for this to go unnoticed.

Most nylon and wool carpets are repairable using carpet dye, and upwards of 90 percent of all carpets are nylon or wool. According to ecarpetstains.com, a leader in do-it-yourself carpet dye kits, you simply need to send in a carpet sample (cut from leftover carpet or from the corner of a closet) and a description of the carpet stains. They will send you a custom do-it-yourself carpet spot dye kit that will match the color of your existing carpet. With a few simple steps, you can eliminate your carpet spots and treat your carpet to the long life it deserves.
