Carpet Bleach Spot Re-dyeing

An Alternative to Cutting out Bleach Damaged Carpet is: Re-dyeing


To the right is the remains of a multiple spot re-dye, trouble is, when dyeing carpet, the focus is on getting the damage dyed that so often the picture is forgotten until it is finished, in this case the pictures were remembered near the end of the job.
The person that caused this bleach damage vowed to never put a bleach bottle on the carpet ever again!



The pictures included below are to give you an idea of bleach spots we have re-dyed back to the carpet’s original colour, and so you know, pictures could be added until you are fed up of looking at pictures. Suffice to say the carpet can be re-dyed back to the original colour if the bleach has not damaged the fibres of the carpet to a point the carpet will not accept the dye properly . . . Most bleach damaged carpets can be re-dyed beautifully, sadly some can only be re-dyed so if you walk into a room the spot isn’t noticeable until you go looking for it, this is what is meant by the bleach damaging the carpet fibres.


And The Restored Colour is as Colourfast as the

Carpet Bleach Stains

Dyeing bleach spots on your carpet requires:


  • The bleach in your carpet needs to be neutralized before the carpet can be re-dyed, the first and most important step!  If the bleach is not neutralized first it will re-bleach the carpet again.

  • Then, the same carpet dyes used by carpet manufacturers are added to the bleach spot, one primary colour at a time, to re-build the original colour.  As the different colours are added to the damaged area, it is like layering the colours on until the original colour is re-built and restored.

Photos Of Dyeing Repair to Wool Carpet




These pictures are of wool carpet being re-dyed, not because bleach was used on the carpet because wool desolves in bleach.  This was a bleaching agent, like a laundry whitener, improperly used to clean a pet stain.
