Carpet Dye: The Best Stain Remover
What is a Stain Remover? What is a Stain?
A stain occurs when colour pigments are added to a surface, like your carpet. When you spill red wine or juice, paint or ink, or even food products on your carpet, colour is added to the carpet. Many light stains can be removed with the use of surfactants, like soap and water. The surfactant helps to loosen the stain which can then be absorbed into another cloth or absorbent material. Not all stains come up easily and need stronger methods to remove them. This is where colour loss can occur.
For heavier stains, a chemical stain remover can be used. A stain remover can work in a variety of ways – some remove the top layer of colour pigments; others have chemical compounds that bind to stains and allow them to be lifted from the surface. These carpet stain remover products do work, but the trouble is that the product doesn’t know where the stain ends and your carpet colour begins. Therefore, stain remover products like these can remove all colour from the area it is applied to, resulting in a bleach spot. This is why major stain remover brands ask their consumers to test an inconspicuous spot before proceeding.
Complete Stain Removing Solution: Carpet Dyeing
This is where carpet dyeing and rug restoration comes in. Red Dragon approaches stains with a multi-step process designed to remove a stain and restore your carpet or rug to its original colour. This comes in a three step process:
- First, one of our specialists will rinse and clean the stained area. This removes any dirt that is in the carpet andwill get rid of any excess staining pigments.
- If the stain is heavy, your carpet or rug will be accessed and our specialist will use an appropriate stain remover to get the stain out.
- Lastly, our specialist will use a professionally designed colour app called ColorCue to create a custom mixed dye to return the carpet back to its original pigment. See the video below to see the power of carpet dyeing.
