WHAT DOES THE APPLICATION OF STAIN PROTECTION DO?
Stain protection is an effective invisible shield on your carpet or upholstery which allows a time delay for a lot of spillages. They can often be blotted up before they soak into the fibres or fabric. It also provides a barrier between the protected area and soiling. If dirt is brought into your home or business on the bottom of shoes etc it does not become knitted into the fibres. It means that when you vacuum the soiling can be removed very easily.
HOW IT WORKS
Carpet and soft furnishing fibres have pores in them. The protector begins to fill these pores and coats the fibre, reducing the amount of soil and stains that can be absorbed into each fibre. The protection has no effect on the texture, appearance or smell of the fabric.
Remember that protection is never 100% proof: when you have a spillage you still need to mop it up as soon as possible. If you leave it a stain may still develop.
The protector will:
Spills tend to remain on the surface of the carpet or fabric allowing you more time to get the spill soaked up before it penetrates. Be aware that some stains will penetrate faster than others, particularly if hot.
The next time the carpet or upholstery is cleaned the results will be improved.
Keep soil from penetrating deep into the fibres so each time you vacuum a higher percentage of the soiling is removed.
HOW LONG WILL IT LAST?
Under normal conditions 12 - 18 months maximum protection after which it will begin to wear away.
When the carpet or upholstery is no longer water and oil repellent as a result of use or following extraction cleaning, reapplication is necessary.
