When a hotel develops faded and or discolored carpets, the owner can have their carpets redyed to restore their once vibrant colors. With carpet dyeing, carpet can look renewed. This also helps to extend the life of the carpets. There are many benefits of seeking commercial carpet dyeing, including changing the color of the hotel carpets. When a hotel owner needs to have their carpet color changed, you do not have to replace the carpets. Instead, carpet color can be changed! In learning that carpet colors can be altered into a new and different color, often the hotel manager or owner will have a number of questions about how this is possible. Carpet Dye-Tech would like to share how carpet dyeing color change is done in hotels and other commercial settings.
What Color Should I Dye My Carpet?
The first step in carpet dyeing is to select the proper type of dye for the carpet fiber. Common types of carpet fibers are nylon, wool, and polyester, each of which may require different types of dye or even dyeing techniques. Next, the color will also need to be determined. At this point the hotel owner can choose to change the color of the carpet or restore the original color. If the need or desire is for a different color, the carpet dyeing specialist will provide a dye color chart to help you find the right color.
Prepare for Carpet Dyeing
Before the carpet can be dyed, the carpet must be thoroughly cleaned and vacuumed. It is very important to remove all dirt, stains, and other substances that may be inside the carpet’s fibers. With proper cleaning it will ensure better dye penetration and an evenly colored carpet.
Do You have to Pre-Treat Carpet Before Dyeing
Depending on the carpet fiber and dye, a pre-treatment may be needed to help the dye absorb into the carpet as well as colorfastness. This may involve applying a dye fixative or other similar chemical treatment to the carpet.
Professionals Apply Carpet Dye
Once the carpets are fully dry and after the pre-treatment is done, they are ready to be dyed. There are a few different methods for applying the dye to a carpet. Some method may include using a spraying, brushing, or using a commercial dyeing machine. The chosen method will depend on the carpet’s size, shape, and the condition of the carpet. The dye is typically applied evenly across the surface of the carpet, ensuring that all fibers are covered and the color is consistent throughout the entire carpet.
How Long Does it Take for Carpet Dye to Bond?
Once the dye has been applied, it needs time to soak into and bond with the carpet fibers. This process will usually take several hours, but can even take days, depending on the type of dye and carpet fiber that is being dyed. During this time, the carpet should be protected and kept clear of any foot traffic and direct sunlight to prevent damage or uneven color development.
Post-Treatment & Drying of Carpets
After the dye has set, a post-treatment may be used as they can help enhance colorfastness and durability of the new dye. This can include applying a protective sealant or coating to the carpet’s surface. The last step is to allow the carpet to thoroughly dry before using the area or space. The use of fans can help speed up the drying process.
