HOW DOES FABRIC PROTECTION WORK

When correctly applied a fabric protector will work because it does two (2) basic things –

  1. Fabric Protection Increases Surface Tension – This means that any liquid spilt on a fibre will have difficulty penetrating the surface.  When spills can’t penetrate the fibre, clean up becomes easier and staining is avoided.
  2. Fabric Protection Has A Coating Mechanism – A fabric protector’s fluorochemical polymer stain shield penetrates and coats the fibre.  The strength of bonding and length of protection may vary from product to product.  Correct application is important to ensure the entire fibre, from top to bottom has been treated in order to deliver the maximum benefits.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT FABRIC PROTECTION

Regardless of all warranties or marketing claims, no fabric protector is 100% bulletproof.  If spills are not cleaned up immediately or at least within a reasonable time frame, stubborn stains may occur.

PROTECTING YOUR ENVIRONMENT IS OUR BUSINESS

WHEN SHOULD FABRIC PROTECTION BE APPLIED

The very best time to have your carpet or upholstery fabric protected is directly after cleaning by a qualified professional carpet cleaning technician.

Some carpets have a protector applied when they are manufactured.  This protective coating may be worn away with foot traffic, abrasive soils, wear and tear or even just regular cleaning.  If this is the case a full protection service can be applied or alternatively a top up application can be applied to those high traffic areas.

WHAT WILL A FABRIC PROTECTOR DO FOR MY CARPETS AND UPHOLSTERY?

  • Fibres Last Longer

    Fabric protectors aid in releasing abrasive soils which damage fibres enabling them to be effectively vacuumed from the carpet.  This means carpets and upholstery will not have to be replaced before they should.  Replacing carpets is very expensive and majorily time consuming.  That’s why fabric protection will save you money in the long run.

  • Fibres stay cleaner for longer and look newer

    When soils can not penetrate or bond to the fibre, your carpets and upholstery will naturally look cleaner and newer for longer.

  • Cleaning is much easier

    On carpet and upholstery where a fabric protector has been applied correctly, regular vacuuming can become 50 – 70% more effective.  This also means carpet wear is reduced significantly.

  • Protects against spills, stains and resoiling

    Fabric protection will give you time to clean up spills and stains before they become a problem.

HOW DOES FABRIC PROTECTION BENEFIT YOUR FAMILY

1. Creates a healthy indoor environmental

The microfilm formed by the fibre protector repels dust mites and allergens, releasing them for effective removal by regular vacuuming with a HEPA vacuum cleaner.  Most of the popular fibre protectors will not change the feel or appearance of your carpet and upholstery, nor will they emit chemicals into the air.  Many fibre protectors even claim they can help prevent dust mite infestations.

2.    Hypoallergenic Film

The microfilm formed on the fibre that has been protected is inert and is not a known cause of any skin or respiratory irritation to adults, children or pets.

WHEN CAN FABRIC PROTECTION BE USED

Fabric protection is suitable for domestic and commercial carpet, upholstery, rugs and other fibres.  This includes nylon, polypropylene and wool, carpet and upholstery.  Some popular areas where fabric protection is most used includes homes, offices, hotels, nursing homes, restaurants, clubs, cinemas, conference centres, car seats and many more.

In terms of fabric suitability, the basic rule is that if the fabric is “Water Cleanable” then it is safe to protect with a water based fabric protector.  Where fabrics are “Dry Clean Only” then it is usually best to use a solvent based protector.  This applies to various cottons, delicate fibres, etc.  We do not use solvent based fabric protectors due to their hazardous nature and potential dangers for all concerned.

FABRIC PROTECTION LIFE EXPECTANCY

For the ultimate results and performance, it is recommended that Fibre Guard Protector be applied every second clean.  If you were to clean the surface once a year, the life expectancy would be two (2) years.  If you were cleaning the surface every six (6) months, life expectancy would be one (1) year.  Be aware that in high traffic areas, regular vacuuming will extend the life of the protector as it is dirt and traffic that breakdown and reduce the life of protectors.

DON’T FORGET

Attend to spots and spills immediately.  Fresh spots are significantly easier to remove than stains which have been left too long or treated with the wrong chemical, which can actually set the stain and damage the fibres beyond repair.
