Carpeting is one of the top items sent to landfills every year. If you have wall-to-wall carpet that you want to replace because it looks old and faded, consider hiring someone to re-dye it instead. First, yes, you can dye carpet. A trained technician can make your old carpet look brand new. You can have the carpet dyed to match the original color, or you can change the color altogether. The process is less expensive than installing new carpet, and the products used are environmentally friendly. The dying process is colorfast, so nothing will wear off on feet, socks, paws or through vacuuming.
