Welcome to Revive!

REVIVE CARPET DYEING was the first cold water reliable system to permanently re-colour wool, nylon or silk carpets ‘on the floor’. Developed in Sydney, Australia, by Gary Sargent, since 1977 the system has been in continual successful use, giving domestic and commercial carpets and rugs years of extra life.

Stained, faded, tired-looking carpets and those too light to be serviceable, can be revived with a fresh looking new colour. Revive’s professional and attentive operation can rejuvenate your wool or nylon carpets for a fraction of replacement costs. An average size home is completed in one day and is useable immediately: costs are usually around one third the cost of replacement.

The Revive Process can help from a full colour change, to a refreshing top-coat of the same colour, or… to solving draught marks around walls with attractive borders: maybe spot dyeing of lighter bleach-type stains, or…promotional and logo mats and designer rugs! Colour makes such a difference, it can give you an instant face lift. Contact us with your particular problem to see if we can help.  Contact

We hope you find the information you are after while browsing our website.
We can even help you save money if replacement is your best option.

Silver Medal for Excellence

In 1982, our system was awarded the silver medal for excellence at the Geneva International Inventions Exhibition. It is still to this day by far the best process available.


A huge thank you to Gary and Eileen – Revive Carpet dyeing – a fabulous job done in the gallery rooms of the Royal Art Society of NSW here in Lavender Bay.  This was not an easy job with food and drink stains – the carpet has come up a treat.

A great team, professional and friendly and nothing was too much trouble and I highly recommend Revive Carpet Dying.

Christine Feher - Secretary Royal Art Society
“Revive Carpet Dyeing Company successfully dyed the carpets of 125 patient rooms in the hospital during 1997 and 1998. Three colours were used allowing wards to be identified differently. The hospital carpets were not worn but were stained and faded. The dyeing of the carpets enabled us to extend the useable life of our carpets for several years and the savings afforded to the hospital in utilising dyeing as opposed to replacement were considerable.
Yours faithfully”

” Just a quick note to say thank you so much for working on our carpet on Saturday. It looks fantastic, I couldn’t have believed that it would have looked so good after the dye process. It has brought the life back into the carpet and looks almost brand new.
Also you both were so friendly and at ease, it was a pleasure doing business with you.
Kind regards”
