Having your carpet protected is one of the most important services we offer.
When you buy new carpet, there is some sort of stain guard or "Scotch Guard" protection applied. This is usually good for a year depending on the manufacturer's warranty.
After your carpet is cleaned, the protection is extracted off the fibers along with the dirt and soil.
This leaves your carpet vulnerable to drink spills, food stains, and worn fibers in the main traffic lanes.
Every time you have your carpet cleaned, you should always have the technicians reapply it.
The benefits of having your carpet protected include:
Fight stains- Instead of food and drink spills penetrating and staining the fibers, the spill sits on top of the protective coating which makes it easier to clean.
Traffic lane wear resistance- Capet tends to get dirtiest the most in traffic lanes. When you don't vacuum frequently, the dust and soil act like razor blades on the fibers when you walk on it. Having your carpet protected prevents the wear and tear in your traffic lanes.
More vacuum power- Dust particles and dirt is less likely to get intertwined in your carpet fibers. This allows for a more thorough vacuuming by 60%.
Longevity- Where carpet protecting fights stains and general wear, your carpet will last a lot longer and look cleaner longer.
Look at it this way...
It's like cooking eggs with a Teflon skillet, or a cast iron skillet. The egg will barely adhere to the Teflon skillet, and be a complete pain with the iron pan.
The same applies with carpet.
Be smart and have your carpets protected!
