Does it look like your carpet has seen better days? When your carpet looks bad it can make your whole home look bad. You may think your only option is to rip it out and replace it but there’s another option. Carpet dyeing can save you time and money. There are a handful of benefits that come with carpet dyeing, but it still takes time and you can’t reverse it once it’s done. Carpets with stubborn stains can look like new with professional deep cleaning. You can also cut stained sections out and replace them if you have extra carpet. Spot dyeing can be done to re-color stained or faded areas or you can have the entire carpet dyed if you’re looking to change the color.
Pros of Carpet Dyeing

Rooms with sun exposure can fade carpets. These are situations where the carpet is still in good condition and you don’t need to replace it.
A new carpet color. Carpet doesn’t need to be stained or faded for carpet dyeing to be a good option. You might just be tired of the color and need a fresh look. You can get a new color without all the hassle and cost of tearing out the existing carpet.
Less odor from carpet. The smell of new carpet can be overwhelming. It smells bad and can be irritating to the eyes and respiratory tract.
