Carpet and Fabric Protection

Special Report!

"Why You Should ALWAYS Get Carpet and Fabric Protection"

carpet protectant

Unfortunately there is probably as a great deal of confusion about carpet protectors in our industry. Untrained and sometimes dishonest carpet cleaners give out false information, and in the worst cases, intentionally misrepresent the product.

 

WARNING: The protector that "was" in your carpet may be GONE and leaving you EXPOSED!

A nylon stain-resist carpet is made with two protective properties: The first is an acid dye blocker that is basically a clear dye that fills the extra dye sites in a fiber. This helps to keep "foreign" dyes (such as red dye in a beverage) from penetrating the carpet fiber. The second property is called a "fluorochemical". It is commonly known as 3M Scotchgard® or DuPont Teflon®. This treatment helps keep spillage from actually getting to the acid dye blocker, but its biggest job is to resist dry soil.

 

By resisting dry soil, less soil bonds to the carpet, therefore being picked up by your vacuum or cleaning. Making sure that you have a sufficient amount of protector on your carpet will help keep the soil from bonding to the carpet. Once it bonds to the carpet, it acts like sandpaper on your traffic area. Once the traffic area yarns are broken down, there is no way to bring them back to their original state.
