Spot Dyeing Carpet

Spot Dyeing Carpet

Most carpets are made from a synthetic material called nylon. Some nylon carpets can be spot dyed meaning that color can be added to the carpet fibers to blend in the color so it is not as noticeable.

Light spots on your carpet can occur from acne medication (Peroxide based), household bleach, pesticides, fertilizer, make up and other chemicals in your home. These light spots can range in many different shades of color from green, yellow, orange or white.

Understanding color is critical in achieving a positive outcome when spot dyeing carpets. If you have a beige carpet and the lighter spot is yellow then the carpet will need a light blue and a light red dye added to the dye site areas of the carpet in order to turn it back to a beige color. Why might you ask? Beige (brown) is made from red, yellow and blue dye. If the carpet spot is light yellow in color that usually means that the red and blue dyes have been removed by some type of bleaching agent and other colors must be added to correct the color problem.

Other color combinations might need to be added to these areas to get the desired result because not every beige carpet is the same color beige. Shading colors such as black might need to be added to project the right hue.

At Advanced Steam Extraction, Inc. we have had years of experience in spot dyeing carpet to match. Having the appropriate dye and knowing how colors interact is critical to the end result.

Black Streaks on Your Roof?

If your roof has unsightly black stains or streaks on the asphalt shingles it can be caused by a hardy type of algae called Gloeocapsa magma. This algae thrives in humid and warm climates and can feed on the crushed limestone and other material that is used in asphalt shingles. Rain then spreads the algae along the roof, causing black streaks. Proper treatment of this algae can eliminate the unsightly discoloration and roof damage.
