If you find your carpet to have a few discolored patches and there is no other shedding, matting, or crushing problem, then replacement is not a good idea. Now, the only method left for you is dying, which is safe in some cases and unsafe in others.
Do not dye a carpet made of polyester, acrylic, or olefin (polypropylene) because these fibers are composed of petroleum, which makes them resistant to absorbing dye.
You cannot color a lighter shade on a dark rug as it will be visible, and your dying will turn out to be an unprofessional effort.
On average, the carpet replacement can cost you around $200 to $900 for a 10 X 12 room and $250 to $1100 for a 12 X 12 room. Carpet dyeing will cost 20% to 60% less than this price.
Tools You’ll Need: – Protective Gloves – Masking Tape – Scissors, etc.
Determine Your Carpet Type: A few carpet materials cannot stand dyeing due to their composition. Hence, before you go further, check what your carpet comprises.
Prepare Your Carpet: Preparing a room and carpet by cleaning and removing furniture is another important step that you can’t miss.
Prepare The Dye: While preparing the dye, ventilate your room by opening the doors and windows. Also, put on the gloves and mask for better protection.
Dye The Carpet: For a perfect dyeing result, start spraying the dye mixture from the corner and glide your hand in a linear direction.
