A common question that I’m asked “Is it worth applying protector treatments to your carpet and sofa?” Well the answer is yes.
So how do carpet and upholstery protectors actually work?
They work by coating the surface of the carpet or upholstery fabric with a dirt repellent coating which makes it harder for dirt to stick to or spills to be absorbed by the fibres. It also follows that these residues can be removed more easily when its time to have them cleaned.
The protectors are either water based or solvent based depending on the application. Once applied the protector will be absorbed into and coat the fibre repelling the soil or spill. It is as effective on natural fibres such as cotton, linen, wool as it is on synthetic fibres such as viscose rayon, Tencel, nylon, polyester and acrylic. Other fibres worth protecting are the new generation of carpets containing jute, sisal, seagrass and coir which are especially prone to water based stains.
After treatment, the protectors won’t allow sticky soils to stick to the fibres, so that they dry out and eventually turn to dust.
If a glass of red wine or coffee is spilt on a treated fabric then a correctly applied protector allows time for the spillage to be padded out with a wad of tissue or a cloth before it causes damage or stains.
Our protectors can be applied to just cleaned or newly installed carpets.
These protectors are used in both the domestic and commercial markets. Many commercial property owners are well aware of the benefits of protecting their investments such as pubs, restaurants, nightclubs and restaurants. Whilst, householders are highly recommended by manufacturers and retailers to protect their carpets and upholstery. In fact our premium carpet and upholstery protector has achieved the prestigious WoolSafe mark.
In fact we are so impressed by the benefits of stain protectors, that after we have cleaned your carpets, rugs, upholstery and leather suites we apply a coat of Standard Protector- free of charge!
Whilst the stain and dirt protector we apply free of charge is a superb product, we offer an upgrade to our premium protector that not only has the prestigious WoolSafe seal of approval but has also been Enviroseal certified.
So how does it work:
Fiber ProTector is a revolutionary system that is able to encapsulate the microscopic holes within the fibres of the carpet or fabric. Therefore these fibres keeps all their natural properties like breathability, looks and feel. Dirt doesn’t get the chance to attach and will be laying on the surface of the fibre.
Daily vacuuming does most of the work for you. It takes away the majority of the dirt and dust particles which otherwise would attach themselves to the fibres and cause poor air quality as well as the development of unwanted germs and bacteria. Having your carpets, rugs and upholstery treated requires less vacuuming because there is less static and friction to attract and hold on to the dust .
The protection itself is extremely durable lasting for many years with anti microbial properties to help against the spread of germs and anti UV protection to help against sun fade.
