Fix Bleach stains are a nightmare for hotel managers. Stains, on carpeting are typically the result of hotel guests or cleaning damaging the carpet, followed by well-meaning but unaware maintenance workers attempting to clean up soiled carpet, oftentimes resulting in carpet discoloration, what we refer to bleach stains. While there are many carpet dyeing solutions and services that can help, restore the original luster of hotel carpets impacted by bleach stains, there are some less informed property management teams that believe that a quick internet search on how to fix bleach stains in hotel carpets will solve their problems.
Spoiler Alert: It won’t.
The internet is littered with misinformation, myths, and empty, promises on fixing bleach stains – and most of this information will not only prove ineffective, but has the potential to do substantial and significant additional damage to your hotel’s carpets and rugs. Let’s review the myths and the realities of how to fix bleach stains in hotels and other rental properties.
Myths About Repairing Bleach Stains
Myth #1: Vinegar Reverses the Process
To understand why this myth is laughably wrong, you need to understand how bleach works. Bleach removes the pigment in your rug, stripping it of all color. Using vinegar does not magically, make the color return – the same can be said for vodka, gin, or baking soda. The only way to reserve the color being removed from a rug is to deposit more color into the carpet fibers. In other words: You simply can’t DIY your way out of a bleach stain.
Myth #2: Bleach Stains Block Dye
Another common myth about bleach stain repair claims that carpet with bleach staining can never be returned to their original color. The claim is that the bleach remains in the carpet fiber and as such, the carpet will never be able to retain newly deposited color. Nothing could be further from the truth. Hiring a knowledgeable carpet dyeing team that understands how to neutralize the chemicals in the carpet and deposit the perfect color will deliver long lasting and beautiful results.
Myth #3: Patterned Carpets with Bleach Stains Cannot Be Repaired
False. Simply false.
