Fiber protection has many benefits and it is recommended any time you get your carpet professionally cleaned. There are right and wrong ways to apply it, so make sure that you have an IICRC (Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification) certified technician doing the job for you.
Fiber protection reduces permanent stains and makes your next cleaning more effective. It also helps to resist dry soil, which will aid in vacuuming. Vacuuming often is the best thing you can do for your carpet. Here are several reasons why you should consider adding carpet protection to your list of services at your next cleaning appointment. It reduces permanent stains by repelling spills. This helps you to be able to clean them up more quickly so the dyes don’t penetrate the carpet fibers. It saves your traffic lanes by keeping loose soils on the top of the carpet, thus being able to get vacuumed up easily. Traffic area soil is abrasive and cuts through carpet fibers, causing irreparable damage. Fiber protection makes spots easier to remove. The easier a spot is to remove, the less agitation you have to use and the less time you spend worrying about it. It also makes your next cleaning more effective. More soil will be removed each time, resulting in cleaner carpet. It will help you avoid having to call your cleaner after every spill. It can get expensive for you to call a professional to your home for a spot or two to clean up. With fiber protection, you can remove most spills yourself, with water. The result of having protector applied to your carpet is that it will look better and the cleaning results will last longer.
