Imagine spilling red wine, coffee, or spaghetti on your carpet and not worrying about impending stains! We can help prevent those common mishaps from permanently ruining your carpet or upholstered furniture with the application of the proper protection. This protection can be applied on carpet, upholstery, in vehicles, and even on mattresses.
How Does the Protector Work?
Our protection is a liquid-based plastic that adheres to your carpet’s fibers. Afterwards, when something is spilled, the carpet pile does not absorb the stain. In fact, the carpet repels it. This makes it easier to keep your carpets clean, thus avoiding expensive measures in the future.
Having protection not only prevents stains, but also wear and tear on your carpet. To explain in further detail, Scotchguard protection resists soil, so less soil sticks to the carpet fibers. Since soil acts like sandpaper toward carpet fibers, slowly damaging them as its rubbed around, Scotchguard protection reduces wear and tear by preventing soil from bonding to the fibers in the first place.
How Often Should I Apply Carpet Protection?
There are two ways carpet protection is removed from your carpet:
- Regular foot traffic. Over a period of six months to two years, depending on the traffic, a great amount of protection is removed from the fiber just from everyday use.
- High alkaline cleaners. Uneducated, uncertified carpet cleaners use harsh chemicals on a carpet that remove its protection.
5 More Important Reasons to Choose Carpet Protection
- Reduces permanent stains.
Unprotected carpet doesn’t repel spillage as well as protected carpet. Protector allows you to remove spots and spills more effectively, therefore helping you to avoid permanent staining.
- Helps save your traffic areas from becoming destroyed.
As mentioned, traffic area soil is very abrasive and cuts carpet yarns like a saw. This damaging soil easily bonds to an unprotected carpet. By applying protector, you increase the life of your carpet dramatically. When you vacuum your protected carpet, the soils also release from the carpet pile much more effectively.
- Make spots easier to remove.
The easier a spot is to remove, the less agitation you have to use, and the less time it takes. Many spots can be removed easily with just water.
- Makes your next professional cleaning more effective.
Having protector applied to your carpet enhances future cleanings. More soil is removed the next time your carpeting is professionally cleaned.
- Helps avoid costly service calls.
Although you should call Preferred Carpet Care to handle any spots/spills you are unable to remove immediately, carpet protector aids you in removing more spots than you could without it. You may be able to save a minimum charge by removing the spot yourself.
Be sure to ask for carpet or upholstery protection when scheduling your appointment and if you still have any doubts, ask one of Preferred Carpet Care’s technicians here in the Redding area to give you a demonstration on how it works.
