Did bleach spill on your carpet?
Carpet dyeing was very popular back in the 70’s and 80’s, but lost market share due to the complexity of it and because of the invention of polyester carpet. Nylon and wool fibers are the two primary types of carpet or rugs that can be dyed. Dyeing is permanent and 100% colorfast. The dyes will strike immediately and are guaranteed permanent. Carpet cleaning will not reduce, remove or fade the repaired areas that were dyed. There are two main types of dyes in the industry, powdered and liquid. Powdered dyes will fade and wash out after time. Our dyes are liquid and in our opinion are the best carpet dyes in the industry. They will not wash out or reduce in color once applied. All repairs can be walked on immediately after we are finished. Plus there is zero odor to our dyes.
Carpet dyeing isn’t easy.
There’s a lot to learn in respect to dyeing carpet. The first is color theory and the second is the application of said dyes. In reality carpet dyeing is an art form and not a black and white cookie cutter application. Technique, skill and lots of practice are crucial to a successful job. Not every artist paints the same picture and dyeing is no different. If the person you hire doesn’t routinely do carpet dyeing then we can almost guarantee that your carpet repair will look like a rainbow or a different color all together.

Carpet dye is not paint. Carpet dye is translucent.
Carpet dyeing is not paint and will not cover stains. If a person has older carpet or even newer carpet that is stained, it is possible to dye it darker so the eye will not catch the staining. Most stains need to be reduced first then re-dyed to match the surrounding carpet. Blending in stains so your eye doesn’t catch it is a very practical solution.
