Stain Protection from Elite Floor Care Specialists
Everyone at one time or another, no matter how careful we are, have had an accident spilling “wine” or “fruit juice” on the carpet or upholstery. It doesn’t matter if your carpet or Upholstery is fairly new or a few years old. Elite Floor Care Specialists can protect it from life’s little spills by applying a Carpet And Upholstery Protector, some times referred to as ScotchGard (Stain Protection). A protector creates an invisible shield on your carpet or upholstery( just like teflon on a frying pan) causing spills to bead up on the surface. As with any spill, the quicker it is picked up the better the chances are that the stain can be completely removed. Protecting your carpets and furnishings also gives you the extra time needed to get to the spill before it sets in.
It works equally as well on surface dirt allowing for easier vacuuming. And an extra bonus provided is a built in “UV” inhibitor helping to prevent damaging sun fading conditions.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Carpet protector delivers its protection by forming a molecular shield around virtually every carpet fiber. The shield lowers the surface energy of the carpet fibers causing them to repel liquid spills, dust and dirt. This helps prevent dirt and stains from being ground into or absorbed by the fibers. Dirt particles don’t cling, so vacuuming is easier and more efficient. It is non-toxic and safe to use around family and pets.
If your carpet comes with stain protector label, it means that the carpet fiber has been treated at the mill as part of the manufacturing process. It is a durable treatment, but the exact length of time the protection lasts depends on a number of variables, such as the amount of foot traffic, the frequency of spills, and how often the carpet is vacuumed or professionally cleaned. Under “normal” conditions and with reasonable care, Carpet protector will provide long lasting benefits. However, performance will diminish somewhat over time with heavy foot traffic, vacuuming or carpet cleaning. For optimal soil and stain protection, many carpet manufacturers recommend that protector be re-applied by a professional cleaner after every carpet cleaning.
