What does Carpet Protection REALLY Do?
When your carpet was new, it had a coating of usually 3M Scotchgard or Dupont Teflon, which had a protector called “fluorochemical.” This treatment prevents spills and dry soils from bonding to fibers and causing unsightly stains and fiber breakdown.
2 Ways Factory Protector is Removed from Carpet:
1. Regular Foot Traffic. Over a period of six months to two years, depending on traffic, a significant amount of protectant is removed from traffic areas and a protector needs to be reapplied.
2. High Alkaline cleaner. Some carpet cleaners use harsh chemicals that strip out the protectant. If you notice your carpet getting dirtier after cleaning, this is likely the reason.
5 Reasons to get Fabric Protectant Reapplied During your Cleaning:
● Helps repel stain causing liquids. Unprotected carpets, upholstery and rugs will easily absorb spills even if cleaned up immediately.
● Helps save traffic areas from being destroyed. Traffic area soil cuts your carpet like a knife and causes ugly traffic patterns. Protector makes vacuuming more efficient.
● Makes spots easier to remove. The protectant penetrates the inside as well as coating the outside of the carpet fiber for an ultimate protection.
● Helps avoid costly service calls. For minor spots, you are more likely to be able to remove a stain yourself if the carpet is protected.
● Keeps your carpet warranty valid. Applying a protectant during your cleaning keeps your carpet manufacturer’s warranty in effect.
