Did you know that the warm and soothing sun rays that reach into your living room or bedroom through your windows could severely affect well-being of your beloved carpets? Wine and juice stains, pet urine, and toxic ingredients found in your carpet cleaners are additional factors known to severely affect the state of carpets and cause their colors to fade in time. Repetitive washing has also been proven to cause colors and patterns to fade away.
Unfortunately, most people are taken by surprise when they notice their carpets and rugs slowly fading away in front of their eyes. It all starts with one or two small spots that appear to be fading in time. You may label the spots as small discolored carpet issues and pay little to no attention to them. But you could be in fact looking at some greater damage that goes beyond some colors fading. It is possible for powerful and direct sunlight to weaken the fibers in your carpet. Plus, exposing your rugs to various chemicals will lead to additional problems. Luckily, our professional carpet and rug color restoration services can help you take back the lost glory and shine of your carpets.
Why Do Colors Start To Fade?
While carpet rips and stains are easier to spot by the naked eye, colors that have begun to bleed or fade are more difficult to notice. These are gradual processes that will require a more detailed analysis.
In general, the colors in your carpets start to fade and the dye to bleed for several reasons. Often times, it is a mix of factors that leads to unsightly stains in your carpets. A professional carpet specialists should be able to assess your rugs and establish the exact causes and recommend the best solutions. Here are a few of the primary reasons why rugs lose their original colors:
- Your carpets are covered in fugitive dyes. These dyes are known to fade after prolonged exposure to direct light from the sun. They are usually natural dyes, and they will cause the colors in your carpets to migrate once they are overly exposed to UV rays. It is also possible for water exposure and improper washing attempts to cause these dyes to wash off.
- A carpet that has been over-dyed will also bleed when expose to water during a washing cycle. This issue is triggered by those dyes that have been added to the rugs after the weaving process.
- When cleaning a carpet, the high temperatures of the water are also known to cause the colors to bleed. Detergents that are rich in alkaline compounds and acidic stains that are caused by pet urine will make colors fade and bleed.

Red And Blued Dyes Are More Likely To Fade
When red dyes are expose to sun rays for long periods of time, they become a lot more prone to bleeding incidents. Tiny molecules of red dye make carpets more vulnerable compared to different color rugs. If you own a beautiful Oriental rug, you are more likely to confront with color dye issues because of the presence of numerous red dyes.
Blue dyes are generally less stable and they are affected by the alkaline components in carpet detergent. Green-blue patterns and purple colors may look good on the floors, but they are also more likely to bleed.
