Carpet falls victim to many spills and stains, mostly coming from food, drink or accidents from your pet. Those spills can leave dark stains on your carpet and can be extremely difficult to remove if not cared for quickly. One spill that home owners do not think of very often is that of the bleach stain. A bleach stain on your carpet usually occurs if a cleaning product is spilled, drips or leaks onto your carpet. Other times people use the wrong type of cleanser on their carpet that includes some type of bleaching agent in the cleanser; this will also leave a bleach stain on your carpet.
How to Treat Bleach Stains on Carpet
A bleach stain on carpet can range anywhere from white in color, to a faded pink color or lighter color of the original carpet. Bleach stains often are not just one spot, but sometimes have a trail of drip marks as well. If you see the bleaching agent spill onto your carpet it is important to immediately blot up as much bleach as you can with a dry clean towel. Be most careful to not rub the bleach even deeper into your carpet fibers, remember that your carpet is super absorbent and if your rub, rather than blot, you will create an even larger area that will be affected by the bleach.
Carpet Discoloration Repair
One solution that has helped reduce the severity of the bleach spill is mixing one fourth teaspoon of mild dish soap with one cup of warm water. Pour this solution over the bleach spill and let it sit on the carpet for about five to ten minutes. Once the stain and solution have dried, rub, from the outside in to avoid spreading the stain, with a sponge or cloth. Rinse this area of your carpet with extremely cold water and let dry. This process should prevent a severe bleach stain, although the bleach will still have lightened some of the carpet.
