Carpet Maintenance: The Advantages of Using a Carpet Protector

Most people want their carpets restored to their original condition including getting their softness back when hiring professional carpet cleaning services. After such a thorough cleaning, maintaining the cleanliness is very important. Keeping carpets clean is difficult especially if you have children or pets. Your carpet is always one cola spill or puddle away from damage. What if you had a carpet guard that ensured your carpet’s cleanliness and soft feel, even when confronted by spills and dirt?

What Is A Carpet Protector

Too good to be true? Not exactly. A carpet protector does just that. It is essentially a liquid that is sprayed on your carpet, and it then goes on to rest like a shield around every fiber. It resists foreign elements, and is meant to keep your carpet as good as new for a long time to come.

Repels Spills

The first and biggest advantage of a carpet protector is that it guards your carpet against spills from liquids of every kind. The protective shield neither allows the liquid to get absorbed into your carpet’s fibers, nor mix with the carpet dye to cause a stain. Instead, the liquid remains on the surface and you can easily remove it with a cloth, a sponge or a wet vacuum.

Repels Dirt and Soil

The other significant advantage of a carpet protector is that it does not allow dirt, grit, or soil to get embedded into your carpet’s fibers. It repels the dirt, and leaves it all on your carpet surface. The next time you use your vacuum cleaner, you can pick it all up without worrying about what has already got in.

Stiffness Is Only Temporary

While these are major plus points, some people worry that after the application of a carpet protector; their carpet will become stiff and lose its soft feel. Even if this happens, it is only temporary. As you use the carpet, its normal softness will return rapidly. Using a carpet protector does put you in a win-win situation.

Precautions

A carpet protector is great, but, remember that it is a chemical. It only works when applied correctly and in the right amount. Besides, there are different kinds of protectors available for different types of carpets. That is why it is best to leave the job to a knowledgeable professional, who knows exactly what will work best and how to use it.

It is also important to work only with reputed brands, which guarantee that their carpet protectors are 100% safe for children, pets and your entire family.
