What Are Protectant Products?
A protectant is a special liquid product applied directly to a carpet following cleaning; protectants are also added to carpets just after manufacture. They are used to help carpets resist dirt and grime and to prevent staining.
Why Should Protectants Be Used On Carpet?
Protectants are beneficial for many reasons:
- They help prevent the development of stains
- They make carpets easier to clean
- They improve carpet appearance
- They help prolong the life of the carpet
Protectants come into play especially when homeowners blot stains up with paper towels or rags. The blotting action is made more effective by the protectant product.
Because stairs and similar high-use areas are not necessarily covered by manufacturer warranty, they can acquire visible wear at a surprisingly fast rate. Having them professionally cleaned and then refreshed with protectant will help improve their appearance.
How Long Does The Protectant Applied By The Manufacturer Last?
The initial application of protectant will only last a few years on a standard use carpet; this means that it should be reapplied from time to time, usually in conjunction with a cleaning visit from Warren & Son. When surface wear can no longer be cleaned out of the carpet on your own, it is a good indication that it is time to have your carpets professionally cleaned. At that time, we can apply a new coating of carpet protectant.
