Will the colour of my carpet fade?
Carpets, like all dyed textiles, will slowly fade over time when exposed to UV light. Closing blinds during the day, when you are not home, will help to reduce the effect of sunlight on your carpet. UV window treatments can also help to reduce the effect of UV light on your carpet.
