Dyeing of textiles has been conducted for thousands of years; but dyeing carpet on-location has only been attempted for a few decades. The first reported attempts started in the 1960s using such dyes as supermarket bought food coloring, coffee, tea, or union dyes. The results left much to be desired. It wasnít until the 1970sí energy crunch, when the textile dyeing industry required less energy demanding dyes, that on-location dyeing was truly born. From these metal-complex self-leveling dyes a new industry blossomed. Dyes that no longer required the in-plant high temperatures for leveling consistency were now available. Although these dyes were new, the expertise for using them was not. The same skill, knowledge, patience and ability were and are, still required.

As with any new industry with profit potential, there has been a flush of braggadocio claims close to charlatanism. No one party has cornered the market of expertise or product. There is no one fast, easy, exclusive, or all-inclusive procedure. As already stated, the dyeing trade has been around for thousands of years. Plus, if the party is using the proper materials, they are the same materials, products and guidelines researched, developed and manufactured by the textile and supporting industries. It is true that there are relatively only a small handful of firms in the world that specialize solely in the field of on-location carpet dye work and have consistent results. However, it is also true that all of these pioneering experts can learn from one anotherís (and othersí) expertise and experience. This has always been the case in the scientific art of dyeing.


We guarantee all workmanship and material. The highest standard and quality will be employed at all times. Probrite is a leader among the few firms in the world that specialize in on-location color repair of carpets. If a job can be done we can do it. However, it must be understood that the article(s) involved is(are) already damaged, and all color work performed is an attmpt to correct or improve said damage in leu of replacement. We cannot remanufacture a carpet, nor can we always remove an inherit problem, but we can REPAIR carpet color! In fact, if we accept a job after on-site inspection, and can't correct or improve upon a problem, and the job is within the Twin Cities' Metro 494/694 loop area, THERE IS NO CHARGE FOR LABOR, but incurred expenses are charged. However, any job that we give advice against performing, yet the customer still desires us to proceed, is done solely at the customer's risk and expense – all labor and expenses are charged.
