How to Restore Carpet Color


If an area of your carpet has some fading, you may be able to reverse it easily.  Vacuum the area to remove any dirt. Make simple salt water cleaner by combing equal parts of salt and hot water, and then stir until the salt completely dissolves.  Apply it to the area with a damp cloth, allow it to dry, and then vacuum up the dried salt. This can help to restore the color loss. 


The carpeting in your home is an investment that you want to keep looking beautiful and new for as long as possible.  Using these tips and regularly scheduled carpet cleaning will help extend the color life of your carpet.
