Is Dyeing Carpet a Good Idea or Not? Next year, we are thinking about getting our carpet dyed as opposed to replaced. The reason? The carpet itself is in pretty good shape as far as the fibers go. There aren't any tears, etc. We bought a 2000-square-foot manufactured home and the entire house (except for the kitchen) is carpeted with awful cream colored carpet. We have two children under the age of 7. Can you guess what is wrong with the carpet? You guessed it. There are stains everywhere. |
This is the reason that we don't want to put the money out to replace the carpet until we are past the "spilling stage," but we are embarrassed when company comes over Hire Out Carpet Dyeing I absolutely recommend dyeing your carpet! I used to be a Property Manager with a very large nationwide company and we often used this technique. It was a very cost-effective way to save carpet! My only recommendation to you, though, is to get it professionally done. And you might want to check references because some companies do a great job and others don't get the colors even. You could get it a shade or two darker or you could opt to get a completely different color. Since you have a cream color there are a lot of color options available to you. Also, if they happen to get it too light when they dye it, you can have them go back and do it a shade darker. There are do-it-yourself kits available, but I don't have the guts to do it! I'm afraid that I won't get the color spread evenly. Use Caution with Carpet Dyeing Around Children and Pets We moved into an apartment where the Manager had dyed the carpet dark brown. All of our socks turned brown on the bottom. Our feet even had brown marks on them. I worried about what the dye might be doing to our dog. I would not recommend it. Since you have kids, I would worry about the amount they are absorbing into their skin just by playing on it. Is that safe for them? At the very least, I would look into that before going ahead with it.
Find Another Solution to Carpet Dyeing
I can't address whether you can successfully dye your carpet. However, one solution that I have used in my home is to purchase inexpensive area rugs from the local discount stores. They cover the major areas of the room, and if further spills occur, the rug can either be cleaned or replaced for a small amount (at least compared to replacing the carpet). This is getting us through until we are ready for carpet replacement. By the way, until your kids move out, you will never be completely free of the "spills" stage!
