Carpet takes so much abuse when it comes to those high traffic areas such as playrooms and living rooms. Often our carpets may become stained, bleached out, or even sun faded; yet the carpet is still in good overall condition. The discoloring makes it look dirty and old before its time. This is where your carpets would benefit from carpet dyeing. For those who don’t want to spend the money on new carpet, especially if the actual carpet still in fairly good condition, carpet dyeing is an affordable way to revitalize your carpet or even change the entire color, feel, and look of the room.
Dye or Replace Carpet
There are many factors that come into play when making this decision. Whether there are stains from pets, young kids, or UV ray damage that lightens and fades carpet, there is wisdom to re-dyeing the carpet verses replacing it. However if carpets are over 10 years old, many will decide its old enough to just replace. For carpets that are less than 10 years of age, but have suffered some unfortunate staining or fading, dyeing the carpet is far more economical. The cost of dyeing carpet is half of that of replacing carpet, making it a sound choice for many homeowners and even commercial owners as well.
Carpet Dyeing Options
Dyeing carpet isn’t as simple as repainting your walls or even re-staining your wood floor. To be done correctly, carpet dyeing should be done by a professional or specialist. There are three major techniques used by the specialist and it will greatly depend on what is desired and what needs to be done.
Spot Control – stains that are not caused by bleach and where the stain isn’t perfectly white and where most of the stains have become a pinkish hue due to sun fade or spills. To dye the spot your specialist will need to integrate colors to match the rest of your carpets. This will take training and knowledge of how each color will react to the carpets fiber and the discoloration of the stain.
Re-Coloring Carpet – Some may decide to re-color the entire carpet. In this case, in order to re-color the carpet there are a few rules you will need to understand. First, you can only go darker in most cases and you will also need to understand that certain colors can’t be applied. For example, you can’t make a red carpet blue but you can create pink shades, orange and even purple colored carpet from a red carpet.
Carpet Safety Supplies – There are some products that should only be used when pets or children are present. Each dye will hold certain attributes. If you have pets or children the specialist will use dyes that are safe. However most of the time these more durable dyes can become more pricey but they are worth it.
