Question: Why should I have a protector applied to my cleaned carpets? Victoria BC

As the finishing touch to your thoroughly cleaned carpet and/or upholstery, specially formulated protector can be professionally applied. These products help carpet and upholstery resist soiling from dry dirt, water- and oil-based spills by wrapping each fiber in a protective coating. This extra layer gives you more time to clean up spots and spills before they soak into the fibers, helping you keep your carpet and upholstery looking its best between professional cleanings. Plus, it makes vacuuming and cleaning up spots easier.

Why re-apply carpet protector?

Although carpet protectant help extend the beauty and life of a carpet, they are not permanently attached to carpet fibers. As a result, effectiveness diminishes with repeated foot traffic abrasion and cleanings. Because of this, the re-application of a protector during carpet cleaning is recommended.

Generally speaking, the effectiveness of carpet protectant is reduced by approximately 30% with each scheduled cleaning. A smaller percentage is lost through foot traffic abrasion. For this reason, carpet manufacturers recommend re-application with every deep carpet cleaning with carpets manufactured with stain and/or soil resistance treatments in order for the carpet to continue to be capable of providing adequate soil resistance and stain repellency properties.
