Professional Carpet Cleaning Arlington VA Tips: Using Carpet Protector

Excuse me. The reason why before I said we’ll go ahead and hold off on the breaking out if we were done with–we’ll let’s say if the customer was not having a supply of carpet protector, then we would have gone ahead and raked that, and we would have been done. In this case, we’re going to ahead and show you applying carpet protector, often referred as stain guard or Scotch Guard.

DuPont Teflon is the brand that we prefer. It’s considered to be the best product in the industry, and we’ll go ahead and apply this first and then rake it. And this will allow us to work that protector a little bit more into the carpet.

Otherwise, as I said, if we weren’t doing the protector, we would have gone ahead and raked it right after the buffing. First off, we’re just going to do it, especially with our protector, we want to clear out our line.

This line right here goes down into the jug before we had sanitizer, and then before that, we had a cleaner in there, especially with protector, ’cause the last thing we want to do–we want to make sure that only the protector is going on the carpet because we’re not going to be rinsing the carpet again.

So we’re going to clear out what was–last in here was the sanitizer. A good 3 or 5 seconds is fine, and then we’re ready to apply the protector to the carpet, and this as well as the sanitizer is just a very light coating. A little less bit heavy than the sanitizer but 0is evenly applied.

And as I said before, this helps the carpet to be more soil resistant, stain resistant. This product, as we talked about earlier, will remove all kinds of stains from the carpet.

I might have been a little bit more nervous to apply this to the carpet if I hadn’t already protected this carpet the last time we cleaned it eighth months ago. That allowed it to provide a barrier from whatever we put on the carpet to prevent that from soaking into the pores of the fiber and permanently staining it. Like I said, think of the protector as a protective coating or barrier around the fiber.

When it involves stain protection on Mohawk hardwood floors, Scotchgard ™ Protector Advanced Repel Technology is applied during the hardwood finishing process at the hardwood factory. Once the Scotchgard stain shield is applied, dirt, debris, and “would be stains” wipe away with a soft cloth.

Scotchgard Protector logo by 3MWhen it comes to stain protection on Mohawk carpets, Scotchgard Protector Advanced Repel Modern technology is also applied during the carpet manufacturing process. The carpet is coated from the tip of the carpet fibers down to the carpet backing with Scotchgard carpet stain shield. Each fiber becomes encased in an invisible stain shield.

When a liquid is spilled on this carpet, rather than soaking in immediately, it will sit on the surface, making it easy to wipe away quickly. Dirt and soil will also sit on the carpet surface, rather than being absorbed, making things easy to vacuum. Your carpet will look newer longer and can even have a longer lifetime due to decreased soil abrasion.
