Carpet & upholstery protection is an excellent choice for families with children or pets and is often part of a warranty requirement. It makes regular cleaning easier and helps to prevent stains. Protection does wear off slowly with vacuuming and normal foot traffic and does need to be re-applied periodically.
A Better Carpet and Floor Service is committed to the highest quality products and services. Our promise to you is to make sure when we apply stain protector to your carpet or upholstery that you are getting the protection from stains that you expect. Protection (scotchgard or teflon) provides effective protection by surrounding individual fibers with an invisible shield to make the carpet fibers or upholstery fabric more resistant to getting stained or soiled and ultimately, extends its life, and makes your vacuuming easier. Our second promise is to apply it correctly. Many within our industry will cut corners here. In order to give you the protection that you expect protection should be mixed properly and then applied properly.
It's always our recommendation that our clients care for their carpets well being, extend their carpets life and reduce cleaning costs by allowing carpet protector to be used after a professional cleaning has been performed.
What Does It Do?
Protection (or scotchgarding) is an invisible barrier on carpets and upholstery that prevents stains, soils and spills from adhering to the carpet fiber or upholstery fabric. When applied, this product effectively applies an invisible barrier to every fiber for maximum protection. Protection does not allow liquid to penetrate into the carpet, it will simply "bead up" or fall between the fibers, not into them. It works as an insurance policy for your carpet. It helps prevent spills or stains from becoming permanent.
Protection also prevents dirt from sticking to the carpet fibers. The dirt is held loosely around the carpet fibers making removal of the dirt easier and vacuuming becomes more effective.
One misperception we come across is that it will keep your carpets and upholstery from getting dirty. Not so. Your usage will determine that. If you have small children, 2 dogs and cat you're more likely to have accidents and soiling then say a single person living alone. What it does do is provide you a level of protection against the soil or stain becoming a permanent part of your home.
