Do I really need to add-on fabric protection / guard?

DID YOU KNOW that one of the best ‘feel good’ experiences you can enjoy is having freshly-cleaned rugs, carpet or furniture?

And one of the most frustrating experiences you won’t enjoy is when, after a couple days, something like red wine, coffee or tea is spilled on that freshly-cleaned rug, carpet or furniture!

This is not good!

So you feverishly apply all kinds of household cleaning products, try to dab it out and scrub in desperation. That spot does look a little better but it is still there… You have other things to take care of so you give up. When you look at it a few hours later… it has grown and possibly even changed colour! (This is another mystery and you might want to ask your carpet cleaning pro why this happens.)

All of this stress could have been avoided if you had asked for fabric protection when you had your carpet or furniture cleaned. You know, like Scotchgard or V-guard.

Yes, fabric protection does cost a little bit more but… it’s worth it!



How does it work?

Fabric protection can be a mystery to many, but basically what it does is act as an invisible shield that repels most substances that are spilled.

You could compare this to waxing a car. You are applying protection to your paint job with this invisible wax shield, and you know it is working because you can see the water beading up on the surface.

Carpets, rugs and furniture fabrics need the same type of protection.

Besides the obvious immediate benefit of cleaning up fresh spills, you can rest assured that a protected carpet, rug or piece of furniture is going to last longer because when something is “clean”, it performs better and increases the lifetime of the fabric.

This doesn’t mean you can skip regular cleaning. Anything that is “dirty” will wear out prematurely. Fabric protection enhances and protects a good cleaning. It’s an added step that you want for your rug, carpet and furniture in your home.

So you want peace of mind? The next time you have your rug, carpet or furniture cleaned, ask for protection. You will like it… and so will your rug, carpet and furniture.
