Stain Guard

Keeping her carpet looking like new is now easier than ever. A professional carpet cleaning will brighten and freshen the carpet. But every time someone walks into her house, they track in dirt spill stains. That’s why she needs to protect her freshly clean carpet with a carpet stain protector. DuPont recommends the application of carpet and upholstery stain protectors every 2-3 cleaning sessions on all carpet types. Even those with built-in soil and stain protection. 

Fabric Protection has a 3-5 year Lifespan.

When you buy new carpets or furniture, it comes with stain and spill protection straight from the factory. Unfortunately, this protection doesn’t last forever. Over time, it wears away with regular use, such as walking on the carpet and sitting on the sofa. Upholstery and Carpet Cleaning removes some of this protection as well. Still, carpet cleaning is needed because the soil and other contaminants build up and can cause further damage and health issues if left undisturbed.

Stain Prevention

Some stain protectors on the market choose to focus more on preventing staining, including acid dye resistors. It helps ensure that the fruit juice or tomato sauce can’t dye your carpet a new and exciting hue. Auckland Steam ‘n’ Dry upholstery and carpet stain and soil protectors don’t bead up because the dye resistance means it isn’t as good at repelling liquid. This is a fair tradeoff in most cases – depending on your needs.

Fabric Upholstery Stain Protector

Fabrics are treated to resist fighting off dry soil and nasty spills and splashes, allowing liquids to bead up and roll off.

Protectors made from fluorochemicals repel oil and water-based spills well, so liquids will bead up instead of immediately soaking in. When a spill remains at the surface, you have time to blot it up before gravity takes over and it gets through to the fibres. 

Stain Protector Types

So how do you know which type of stain protector is best for your home? Auckland Steam ‘n’ Dry recommends Depont Teflon stain guard. A cleaner may support a specific protector or the other and can also check the condition of the current Protector to see if you need a new layer of Protector applied.
