Q††††††††† Can you dye your own carpet?
A †††††††††Dyeing carpet has been around for quite a while and it is an inexpensive way to† handle stains. However, itís not something a homeowner should do. Hire a professional.

A†††††††††† No, for example: if you have a bleach spot on a blue carpet it will appear† yellow, add blue dye and the carpet will turn green, but if the carpet is green, add blue and possibly a little red if needed and the carpet will be green again. If the carpet is† not a red or blue and has enough color in the carpet it can be spot dyed. Most spots can be spot dyed.

Q†††††††††† Is all carpet dyeing the same.
A†††††††††† No, some carpet cleaners say they dye carpet and they have little or no idea what they are doing. I heard things like a spot can not be dyed, you must dye the whole room. They are not carpet dyers and really have very limited knowledge and ability when it comes to carpet dyeing. Carpet Dyeing is our main business.

Have you been thinking about replacing your Stained and Faded carpet? If your carpet is otherwise in good condition, consider having your stains removed and Carpet Dyed by a†† Professional Carpet Dyer.
Many consumers donít know that apartment property managers and commercial building managers have been dyeing carpets for years. Here are a few basics to see if your carpet is a candidate for dyeing.
First, you will need to find out if the carpet is nylon or wool. Remove a few strands of fiber and place in a glass bowl. Add a few drops of household bleach and wait about ten to fifthteen minutes. If the fibers turn lighter the carpet is most likely nylon and can be dyed, if the fibers dissolve it is most likely wool and can be dyed. We do other test to assure the type or carpet fiber.
Exposure to sunlight can change the color of carpet over time. Sun or Fume Fading of nylon or wool carpets can be repaired fairly easily. This is called Color Repair or Replacing the missing color.
Next, you need to determine if the carpet stains can be removed. It helps to know what originally stained the carpet. Some stains can be lightened to almost invisible and some are permanent.
One way to avoid having to decide how the carpet was stained is to be willing to have the carpet dyed a darker color. Most commercial managers opt for this solution. Carpet can only be dyed darker, never lighter. Unlike paint that conceals what is underneath, carpet dye is transparent. The color of the carpet dye combines with the current color of the carpet and creates a new third color. It is similar to a watercolor painting. Each color adds to the next.
Having your carpet Dyed by a Professional generally runs about $.60-$1.00/sq. To find a Carpet Dye Professional near you, look in your local phone book under Carpet Dyers. If there are none, look at the carpet cleaning ads to see if they do carpet dyeing or color repair. The carpet care professionals that advertise membership in a skill organization are more likely to have been trained in color repair.
Stained and Faded Carpets can be an eye sore. Having your carpet Professionally Dyed is a money saving option to purchasing new carpets.
