Myths on Spot dyeing There are several myths that we would like to expose. Most of these myths are spoken of by carpet cleaners; the professionals that have never tried COLOR REPAIR, or who have never learned properly.
#10 the fear of ruining a carpet by going to dark or getting the wrong shade or color.
If this is the case, then the person hasn't been trained correctly. With our NEW IMPROVED system at any stage in the procedure, the outcome is always closer to the original shade or color.
#9 bleached carpet stains can't be dyed as the fibers are destroyed.
Wrong! There are only few cases that can't be dyed, besides there are many other substances that remove color without harming fibers. Most cases can be dyed using a bleach neutralizer and adjusting the ph.
#8 the dye will not hold, or it will come out when the carpets are cleaned.
This is incorrect if the stain was properly prepared before actual re-dye. The only way to remove dye is to rebleach the carpet.
#7 Multi colored carpets cannot be color repaired.
Actually these are more difficult to make mistakes on. Mistakes can be covered up easier.
#6 large stains can't be dyed
With this new system, color match is closer; therefore, we can dye larger areas.
#5 it’s a waste of time to repair bleached out color stains.
How wrong could a person be? Besides building credibility, many contracts are won through color repair. Not only does the word of mouth travel fast, but also you have just saved someone's carpet. Spot dyeing is also a good way of getting your foot in the door. It's not a waste of time.
#4 Why learn, when there is a small demand for repairing bleached out color stains?
It is estimated that one out of five homes has a bleached color stain. Besides, what about impossible stains like varnish or mustard? We can remove these stains and re-dye the carpet.
#3 you can't spotdye light colored carpets, when the stains become green or pink.
Wrong again! This is very easy and profitable. Most stains like these take very little time and the color match is almost 100%. This truly amazes customers.
#2 Animal stains caused by urine can't be repaired.
Often times it is just a matter of restoring the P.H. and adding a little dye.
#1 and now I would like to expose the biggest myth of all, a very costlyone that could have really pleased a customer and built someone's business.
The big deception is that bleached color stains on lighter carpets appear to be darker than the carpet, or that somehow the bleach adds color to the carpet. This is an optical illusion. The sad thing is a customer was told by a professional that the bleached area couldnot be repaired. This type of stain is also one of the easier bleached color stains to repair.
It is our opinion that bleach stain repair is a growing field and will continue to grow, largely ignored in the past. One of the reasons for growth is the recognition that has taken place when bleached color stains are dyed correctly. When performed correctly, it is impossible to tell where the stain had occurred. This in itself would be reason enough; for to replace sections of a carpet is not always practical, nor is the appearance always acceptable. A bleached color stain should always be dyed first. If this should fail, which is rare, then plugging or cutting a section and replacing it should be performed. Another reason for growth is the recognition of partial bleached out color stains. These occur when one of the three primary colors is missing in a small degree. All shades and colors of carpet on the market today are composed by combining a different ratio of only three primary colors. All it takes is a slight amount of any one of these colors missing to produce a partial bleached out stain. This occurrence is very requent in the off white and lighter colored carpets popular today.
The treatment of urine stains is another big reason. Urine in time will shift to form ammonia, which will cause a partial bleached out stains. The color shifts to a yellow orange as some of the primary colors are missing. A very popular reason for getting into bleached out stain repair is simply just to make your customers carpet look better.
One of the reasons for spot dye failure in the past and present that continues to make some people leery was based on incorrect assumptions. Thirty years ago we only had a few dark colored carpets. It was fairly easy to match the carpet color with pre-mixed dyes. The mistake was in the continued effort of matching carpet colors with pre-mixed dyes trying tokeep up with the ever growing number of new colors available. The problem was that these new carpet colors contained less dye and were lighter in color. To add any of the matched colors to the bleach stain would result in a darker shade. When a bleached out stains occurs, only one or two of the three primary colors are usually missing. A third primary color almost always remains within the carpet fibers. Adding a matched color would also add a primary color not needed. It is already in the carpet. It is therefore our opinion that any spot dye kit containing a color composed of more than two primary colors cannot be accurate. It is also our opinion that the more colors a spot dye kit contains, the less accurate the kit will be. It is our opinion that these kits created a lack of trust by making the stain appear worse at times. It is equally our opinion, that the fault and lack of trust created in the repair of bleach stains was not with the individual, but with the spot dye kits and training offered. It is our goal to restore this lack of confidence and make it possible for anyone to repair bleach stains and be accurate. One of the benefits to you the carpet cleaner is your business will grow.
