Carpet dyeing experts how to avoid disaster dying it yourself & end up in the toilet
Carpet dyeing nightmare
What bufoon let so called carpet dyeing experts out to write articles.
It really yanks my chain when I see good people being given crappy advice, which in turn ends up costing you dearly. I read or started to read this article on a so called respected article site and boy did I turn red (the main colour of their site), when I saw this guy vomited up all of what he knew which was virtually nothing about carpet dyeing THEN he has the audacity to ask you to sign up for his email list so he can give you even less knowledge or more warped out stories.
Thank you for taking the time & trusting us your only true colour restoration specialist and carpet dyeing experts. You've made the smart choice not to be mislead on these important points on carpet dyeing as so many people are... by people or business out to make a quick buck on writing bad articles or information on their own sites.

Carpet Dyeing Dangers
WARNING DANGER WILL ROBINSON
NEVER NEVER NEVER
place a redyed carpet on another carpet to avoid the risk of dye transfer
i HAVE ONLY DONE THIS because I know for certain the carpet I put it on is polypropylene & I can clean it off if any gets on. Even on the bricks you need to wash it off so you don't walk the excess dye onto your own carpet
Carpet dyeing experts to the rescue
As with most people I know at some point in time you will want to change your carpet. If it's just the colour and not the texture or look then you should certainly consider carpet dyeing. Carpet dyeing is like those facial rejuvenation masks and treatments, it only treats the look and feel of the carpet.
Choosing the right carpet dyeing company is important because the old style carpet dyers are very restricted to the methods and carpet types they can dye. However with carpet dyeing experts Polypropylene, along with acrylic, Polyester, nylon along and wool carpets may be dyed.
Your carpets current specific color doesn't always mean you will have to go a specific shade or derivative of that colour. You can go pink from green and not get brown. You could go purple from orange without getting black. Only with unskilled or the uninformed would get a purple from wanting to dye red over a blue carpet, however if it's dark blue you would get purple.
As one of only a few carpet dyeing experts I can tell you with all honesty your carpet may be one of the carpets which refuse to absorb certain colours, whether it be the whole carpet or parts. This in new carpet is due to the manufacturing process and in used carpets due to wear and tear. With our specialised carpet dyeing experts methods you don't have to go more dark, you can go lighter & brighter and at the opposite end of the spectrum achieve those deeper blacks than most other carpet dye systems.
The two popular carpet dyeing methods are. Spraying the dye on through a wand or lance using a pump for pressure between 60-80 psi and the other through applying the dye whilst scrubbing it in through a scubber machine.
One person suggests using a pump that produces between 150 and 500 pounds of pressure. Then goes on to suggest the method can have some issues with penetration. HEY BOZO OF course it would have issues with penetration, the dye would be being blasted somewhere between the underlay and concrete and not much left on the surface. When we do restoration cleans we only use 150-300 psi.
A rotary scrubber or modified floor polishing machine used correctly will give you the same result only a little easier. This is because it scrubs the dye in for you and you don't have to manually do it. One person suggests an overlapping pattern but I teach a crisscross method to avoid missing patches of carpet. Though the scrubber therefore may be more efficient, but neither are the more effective strategies of the two.

carpet dyeing research
When I initially set out to do carpet dyeing I got samples from 3 of the ONLY 5 major worlwide carpet dye manufacters. However you will not want anywhere near the quantity of dye we bought so you will have to rely on finding a reputable business that sells carpet dye. Mind you with all the advertising there aren't many out there.
I studied the technical aspects of these dyes for 6 years & made sure the dyes I was going to buy had the highest ratings for
★ Nylon compatibility
★ Perspiration fastness
The reason most of the compatibility issues was because these are daily issues for most carpets. As for nylon compatibility was because most of the carpets are made of Nylon hence the issue of compatibility. Then I went and picked the four colours to give the most vivid reulsts.
Carpets having a stain resilient or protective coating will only partially dye.
You can possibly now see why it is best for you to have one of our carpet dyeing experts visit you to make sure you get the best job without wrecking your carpet. The reason I say this is because there are more than 5 carpet dye tests we do before even considering dyeing a carpet. Our carpet dyeing experts know the ratio of dye to other chemicals such as neutraliser, reducer, fixation agents and lightfast (UV stabilisation) ingredients to use to how much carpet.
As for touching up the colour or doing bleach spots. No colour match program or system can ever replace what the human eye sees. Since 1975 I have seen numerous disastrous effects of what colour match programs or systems output.
For your own peace of mind look in your local phone book for professionals first. Our carpet dyeing experts are professionals at what we do. BUT if you ever think about dyeing your own carpet just grab a magazine with pictures, some water colour paints and have a go painting a decent picture first. At least by doing this first before eliminating the professionals you are less likely to destroy your carpet. Then if you think you're ready go to your local carpet manufacturer or supllier for some samples to practice or try out on.
Carpets usually have a whole range of history to go along with them and when it comes to dye the carpet will tell you what it has gone through over the years. If you are one of the lucky ones you will find your carpet givves you no headaches when dyeing it giving you a great dye job and outcome.
