Over the course of time, many pollutants, chemical, or just nature can damage carpet. The biggest harm is getting carpet discoloration. Some of this occurs through observing darker, soiled areas in high traffic locations. Others become visible where a spill occurred of a food, drink, chemical, or pollutant. For instance, bleach spots can remove the color off carpet or fertilizer sometimes has bleach in it which has the same effect. These spills may not always be visible right away. They may become noticeable over time or if you clean the remaining carpet then this affected area stands out. However, once any of these carpet discolorations become noticeable, it is clear that the carpet is damaged. So what are the solutions?
1: Remnant Patching
If you have remnants of your original carpet, some people will use it to replace the impacted area. This is a very drastic option but one of the most commonly used ones. People find it easy and many individuals keep extras of their original carpet. The cost of this method can be high and depending on the size and location, the replaced area may be noticeable.
2: Hiding It
Hiding the area is another option. Some people will try to conceal the problem spot by purchasing an area rug or other furniture. The cost of this can be high but the bigger issue is that these bleach spots or other discoloration are usually not in an area that can be easily hidden.
3: Dye it Yourself
There are several DIY (Do it Yourself) options to bring back the color or restore your carpet color. These solutions are things like dye pens, carpet dyes, or our favorite, using a close in color crayon and coloring in the carpet fibers. These solutions are very inexpensive and the look of it can show that. While some are successful in making the carpet look presentable, most can cause further harm to their carpets like in the image here.
