    Hi, just popped over from the plumbing/heating forum to respectfully request any assistance you can give.

    As part of a chlorination process in a public building I managed to 'drip' 25 minute beads of concentrated fluid along a common hallway. One drip per carpet tile in fact.

    This has, well, burnt out the colour from the pile. The tiles in question are BURMAFLEX, with a code of 3156. Its a sort of blue/turquoise/green/dark grey effect. Due to the uneven fading through sunlight/wear&tear a close match is not gonna be good enough really. Sooooo has anyone ever tried to dye these tiles, or indeed got a spare box of them just waiting for a use?

    Drips/Leakages of fluids are, of course, part of being a plumbing contractor, and this is by far the worst incident - so far - lessons have been learnt.... :!:

    All assistance gratefully acknowledged. (I do suspect that the Pro advice will be, redo the entire hallway, already had a qoute of £1500, would need to then approach my insurers)


    P.S I could post a piccie of the damage upon request (even if only to gloat over) ;)

    your problem is colour match between the different batches. Normally a floor layer will leave tiles spare?

    You could maybe take tiles from another area that are not seen and use these to replace them and maybe pay for cleaning of the rest of the tiles as compensation?

    I will have a quick now and see if i have any of them tiles and maybe you purchase a box and put the new ones near the edge of the room and use the older ones in the damaged area to try for best colour match. I will get back to you if we have them.
