Carpet dyeing offers a great alternative to replacing old carpet. Don’t pay thousands of dollars on new carpet, padding and installation just because your carpet has “ dirty’d out” vs. “ worn out”. In most cases the carpet has years of life still in it. Carpet replacement is not cost effective or environmentally friendly, now you have an alternative!
Do you know what fiber your carpet is? Americolor Dyes will only work with Nylon and Wool carpets. Below is an easy at home test you can follow to see if your carpet is dyeable.
TEST FOR NYLON OR WOOL:
Collect a few face fibers from the desired carpet you would like to dye and place in shallow dish.
Cover fibers with household bleach and let sit overnight (for at least 12 hours).
Check results. If the carpet fibers lose all of their color, then it is either nylon or wool carpet. If the fibers look like they have been sitting in water and have not lost any color, than the carpet is something else besides nylon or wool and our dyes will not work properly on the carpet. If your carpet has turned pink or purple it is also not dyeable.
