What is it and how does it work?
Fabric protector is a water or solvent based spray-on treatment which works in a similar fashion to the Teflon coating on a non-stick frying pan. It is based on the same chemistry, employing fluorochemical resins that coat fibres with an invisible protective shield.
The protector greatly reduces the likelihood of spills becoming permanent stains. Secondly, because the coating forms a smoother surface than exists on the unprotected fibres, (particularly wool), particles of dirt and soil find it more difficult to lodge in the fibres. Your vacuuming becomes more effective and the carpet or upholstery will stay cleaner for longer.

The benefits of protector to you.
Reduces permanent staining.
A beautiful carpet can be ruined by an ugly spot. Unprotected carpet or upholstery is much more likely to be permanently marked than that treated with a protector.
Saves damage to traffic lanes.
Because protector improves vacuuming efficiency, harmful soil and grit cannot build up so quickly in the traffic lanes. This is important because grit cuts delicate fibres as carpet is walked upon and is responsible for accelerating wear.
Makes spots easier to remove.
Day to day spots and marks are easier to remove. You will find our professional spot treatment we left with you when we cleaned for you will easily remove the vast majority of marks.

Your carpet will look cleaner for longer.
