Any soldier or industrial worker knows how vital protective equipment can be. And if we step on a Lego, we instantly know why wearing protective equipment on our feet (a.k.a. shoes) would be very beneficial.
Just as our bodies benefit from the use of protective equipment, our carpets also benefit from a form of protection. This is why Preferred Carpet Care is happy to offer carpet protection whenever we clean wall to wall carpet.
But is carpet protection really necessary? Let’s consider some of the benefits to help you decide if it’s right for your business or household.
Durability – Carpet protection resists the abrasive qualities of dirt and grime that gets tracked into your home and then repeatedly walked on. The vibrance of your carpet lasts longer, so you don’t have to replace it as often.
Improved appearance – The fibers in your carpet pile are supported by carpet protection, allowing them to keep both their shape and color longer. Since carpet protection creates a barrier for your carpet fibers, liquids cannot bond with them and become stains.
Easier carpet cleaning – Carpet protection resists dirt, liquids and oils. Spills are much easier to blot up and remove without worry of staining the fibers. Dirt and soil particles cannot get as easily entangled in your carpet pile when carpet protection is applied, so they come right out with weekly vacuuming.
Fewer odors – Spills and stains cannot grab hold, so they cannot develop lingering smells either. Carpet protection repels any liquids, allowing for a more thorough cleanup of the components that produce those odors.
Better breathing – Carpet protection resists moisture, dust, and allergens – as well as other components that could develop into mold or mildew. They cannot keep hold on the fibers when carpet protection is creating a barrier. As a result, your vacuum removes these offenders more thoroughly before they affect your breathing.
Protects your pocketbook – Compared to replacing your carpet, applying carpet protection is much less expensive and a lot more convenient. Simply have us apply carpet protection each time we professionally clean your carpet.
Most new carpets come from the factory with carpet protection built in. However, with regular foot traffic followed by professional cleaning, this protective barrier gradually wears away. Therefore, it is ideal to reapply carpet protection after every cleaning, especially in your highest trafficked areas.
As with anything else, taking a proactive approach by protecting your investment offers plenty of benefits now, as well as saving you from costly issues in the future. Carpet protection not only helps to maintain your carpet, but also the appearance and health of your home.
