Automotive carpet dye can restore your car or truck’s carpet so that it looks like new. If your carpets are in rough shape, don’t feel as if you need to go through the expense of re-carpeting your vehicle.
Automotive carpet dye can save you some green and make your carpet look good.
Automotive carpet dye can save you a lot of money if you have deep-rooted stains in your vehicle’s carpet. Or perhaps your car’s carpet has faded so badly that you are unable to decipher the original color that it once was.
Whatever the reason that you would like to put more life back into the carpet in your vehicle, automotive carpet dye may be the answer.
There are two types of carpet dye for the automotive industry. There are penetrating dyes or an aerosol vinyl dye.
The first type actually penetrates and stains the fibers of the carpet. If you have ever taken a handful of blackberries and squished them in your hand, you will end up with purple hands even after you have washed them.
This is exactly how this type of dye works; it works deep into the fibers and soaks up the color like a sponge.
This dye is usually liquid form and comes in many different colors so that it is easy to apply and easy to match. And, fortunately this dye is reasonably inexpensive.
Before you use a penetrating dye, the carpets need to be completely and thoroughly cleaned, shampooed and anything else that is going to do all possible to remove the fibers of grease and grime. These nasty substances could block the dye from soaking into the fibers.
It is suggested that you spot treat the automotive carpets as best you can to remove the toughest of stains. Then after that, you want to use an actual carpet cleaner such as the Little Green Bissell to clean the carpets even more completely.
Be sure to remove as much water as possible because the carpets need to be completely dry before applying this type of dye.
Application should be done by applying the dye and using a scrub brush to work the dye into the fibers in all directions. The use of a circular pattern will help get the dye evenly to eliminate “bald” spots where the color may not take.
Next, allow the carpet to dry completely. If you have achieved the desired color, you are done! If not, repeat this process again until you are happy.
With the aerosol vinyl dye, the dye actually adheres to the fibers rather than penetrates the fibers.
To begin, you will need to clean the carpets just as thoroughly as described earlier to prepare the carpet for the dye job.
Because this type of dye simply coats the fibers, it does a better job of covering really bad stains, such as bleach. It covers all tough stains easier because it is simply being applied over the original fibers, like a coat.
Let it dry completely and your carpets will look new again. If another stain happens, simply pull out the spray can and repeat the process.
Automotive carpet dye can really restore the look of your vehicle’s carpet and at the same time save you some green cash and get you more money for your trade-in.
