Our Redding clients are interested in having the best looking carpets! As a result, they often inquire if using carpet protection, such as Scotch-guard, is an important step in the cleaning and maintenance of their wall to wall carpets. Our answer? Applying carpet protection is always a good idea if you plan to keep your carpet for years to come. This is especially important in high traffic areas and areas where food and drinks are consumed.
How Carpet Protection Works
For homes with kids and pets, it’s worth the small investment to have your carpets professionally treated with a carpet protector from Preferred Carpet Care. When something is spilled on protected carpet, the spill beads so it’s not immediately absorbed. This allows you the time to treat the spot before it stains your carpet. Applying a carpet protector also repels dirt from carpet fibers, and prevents the sun’s intense rays from causing color fading and ultraviolet light damage.
If your carpet is newer, it most likely has some level of stain protection built into the fibers. Over time, with regular foot traffic and then with cleaning and spotting, this protection gradually wears off. Therefore, reapplying carpet protection each time your carpet is cleaned by Preferred Carpet Care of Redding is essential to the longevity of your carpet.
The benefit to you? A nicer looking carpet for a longer amount of time! Contact our IICRC certified team to see if your carpets would benefit from carpet protection. We ask our customers important questions about your pets and the high traffic areas in your home to choose the best cleaning and protection options just for you.
