When people think of cleaning their carpets and upholstery, they often consider whether they should have Stain Guard Protection applied. Stain guard protection for your upholstery and carpets is a wise move, however most people have a misconception about stain guard protection. Let Fast Clean explain the mechanics of the product for all of those people wondering, “How does Stain Guard Protection work?
The most common mistaken belief about Stain Guard Protection, is the idea that despite relentlessly abusing carpets and furniture, adding a fabric protector will keep them brand new. This is simply not the fact, even with Stain Guard Protection, persistent mistreatment of upholstery and carpets will show wear and tear. Stain Guard Protection products will protect your furniture and carpets and prolong the showing of deterioration, but it’s not full proof. So how does Stain Guard Protection work?
This technology is intended to prevent stains, dirt, and grime from penetrating into the fibres of your carpets and upholstery. The chemical is safe and extremely effective when applied correctly with the accurate measurements and techniques. What does that mean? If you buy a can of Stain guard protection obviously the strength of that product is not the same as what they provide to professionals. The reason the concentration is so much lower is simple, the company does not want to pay to replace furniture and carpet for every disgruntled customer who decides to apply more than is recommended because they think their carpets or furniture need more protection.
If the product is applied properly, it will create a protective shield that repels liquid, dirt and grime, thus giving you the time you need to clean the spills and prevent stains. If you spill red wine for instance, and the carpet does not have Stain Guard Protection, you will see the carpet turn a pink colour as the wine absorbs into the fibres. If you spill that same glass of wine and your carpet is Stain Guard Protected, you will see the wine bead up and remain on top of the carpet. By repelling the liquid, you can run and grab some paper towel, apply it to the spill and let the liquid absorb into that, rather than your carpet. Let’s say you spill the wine and you have Stain Guard Protected, but you decide to leave the wine and not clean it up because you have Stain Guard Protection, it could eventually set in. The purpose of Stain Guard Protection is to give you the time you need to prevent a stain. The problem is some people think because they have carpet protection they never have to clean their carpets again. Wrong.
The other fantastic benefit of Stain Guard Protection is the prevention of wear patterns in the carpet. If you have ever looked closely at peoples carpets you can usually see where they walk most often. The carpets in high traffic areas often discolour from wear and tear. The protective shield of the Stain Guard Protection prolongs the beauty of those areas and prevents the carpet from discolouring as quickly. However, as I have mentioned earlier the product is not full proof, even though it prevents the carpet from discolouring the constant rubbing and pressure on the carpet does flatten the fibres in high traffic areas. The high traffic areas with Stain Guard Protection stay new looking much longer than without, but again don’t expect miracles, although Stain Guard Protection is a great product it isn’t magic.
