Did You Know?
- Did you know that pet urine is one of the most common causes of carpet and rug damage? When the acidic urine is allowed to dry it changes into an alkaline state which can bleach and damage the fibres. We can treat and neutralise your urine damaged rug to deal with odour and colour loss.
- Carpet dyeing is often the best way to restore your carpets and the most economical. However, it’s not like painting a piece of wood; you can’t just cover up the imperfections with a brush soaked in dye. Carpet dyeing specialists are trained in colour coordination concepts. If you want your carpets or rugs spot colour restoration to appear natural and seamless you need to use professionals who employ their unique techniques and supplies to ensure the dye remains invisible to the naked eye.
We can add designs, shapes and borders to existing carpets and rugs to create a new look to your existing décor. Now if your carpets or rugs have been discoloured in high traffic areas, faded due to sun exposure, or permanently stained, dyeing is one of the best and most cost-effective solutions when it comes to restoring your carpet in those areas scattered throughout your home that have lost their lustre.
Not All Carpets Are The Same
Post dyed fibre systems provide the most colour options as compared to pre-dyed (solution-dyed fibre systems). With the exception of Berber carpet, most residential fibre systems are post-dyed. In other words the tufted blanket (carpet) is stitched (tufted) and then dyed either on a continuous dye line, where dye is applied as a spray, or the tufted blanket is placed in a ‘dye beck’ (vat filled with dye) and “cooked” while the carpet rolls on a massive tumbler.
I tell you this to let you know that if your carpet is post dyed and in the event it develops areas of discolouration, it can easily be re-dyed by a carpet colour technician. While this dyeing technology was not widely available until about 10 years ago, there are carpet recolour professionals in most areas of Australia today.
Spot Dyeing -vs- Carpet Patching
Because carpet replacement can be expensive, this service has proven to be invaluable to apartment owners, large commercial facilities, hotels, restaurants, office buildings, and retail stores. Patching the area by inserting a new piece of carpet from a closet or scrap is almost always an eyesore. Additionally, if the patched area is replaced with an un-trafficked piece of scrap or cutting from inside a wardrobe, there is almost always a colour or texture variation in the pieced area.
Carpet colour repair by re-dyeing the area is an inexpensive alternative and you will be much more pleased with the result. South QLD Restorations have seen many homes where pet stains, toilet bowl cleaners, acne medications, or other permanent stains turned a particular spot on a beautiful carpet into a great place to put a planter or chair. Some time ago there were really no reliable methods of dyeing carpet that would be permanent or visually pleasing. Re-dyeing and colour repair has been about in various forms for years in the carpet restoration industry, but never really used with such ease and spectacular results. With progress and new technology carpet dyeing is one of the most frequently requested consumer questions.
Unless they’re caused by bleach, stains usually aren’t perfectly white. Instead, they’re typically a pinkish hue due to sun-fade or spills. Therefore, to gain back the original colour of the carpet or rug the stain has to be offset by a counteracting colour. For the uninitiated, this is no easy task and almost guaranteed to fail. It takes a considerable amount of training, specific knowledge, and experience to achieve an expert application.
