Are you ready for upholstery and carpet cleaning and are considering your options? Carpet protector is always a question when it comes to carpet maintenance. Should you treat your carpet? Here’s what you need to know.
When you spill something on your carpet, the fibers will soak it right up. Spills can create discoloration and stains that are hard to get out. Carpet protector acts as a shield for your carpet. It prevents liquids and moisture from soaking into the fibers of the carpet and allows you time to clean up the problem before it becomes a stain.
Carpet protector can also help to avoid wear and tear because it keeps dirt from working its way down into the carpet. Dirt can cause the carpet to break down over time, so keeping it out is a good way to make the carpet last longer.
One thing to consider before applying carpet protector is the age and type of your carpet. Some carpet is pre-treated with protector and won't need any additional treatment until it reaches approximately four years old. Carpets made of polyester or plastic-based fibers don't need protector at all. These carpets will already repel liquid and dirt simply due to their materials.
When you do apply protector, expect to apply it again after each professional carpet cleaning. You should have your carpets professionally cleaned every 6-12 months.
Carpet protector is a great idea to help keep your carpets cleaner longer and reduce daily wear and tear. For everything you need to know about protectors and upholstery and carpet cleaning, contact the team at Whitehall Carpet Cleaners today.
