There are a lot of things that you can do to help extend the life and improve the appearance of your carpet. One of the best things you can do is use a carpet protectant. Many people question whether or not carpet protectant actually works; though we can’t speak for everyone else, we can confidently say that with Chem-Dry of Lake Orion, carpet protectant works wonders! Our protectant helps to repel water and resist stains. Adding carpet protectant to your next professional cleaning will provide some solid benefits.

Why Should I Use Carpet Protectant?

Carpet protectant provides both short an long-term benefits. The purpose of a carpet protectant is to provide short-term stain resistance, allowing more time to clean up a fresh spill. After application, the protectants adhere to the carpet fibers and help to repel dirt and moisture. Basically, it acts as an invisible shield for your carpet – similar to the clear coat of paint that protects a new car’s paint.

The long-term benefit is that it helps to keep dirt from settling down into your carpet. Carpet protectants definitely do not act as a cure-all, but they do help to create more time for cleaning wet spills before they become stains.

How Often Should I Use Carpet Protectant?

Typically, brand new carpet has some type of protectant on it; so you don’t need to treat brand new carpet for the first several years. After that, however, it is recommended that carpet protectant be applied to your carpet every 18-24 months. While the product does not necessarily stop working, it does tend to wear off over time. Areas with a lot of traffic will need to be treated more often and low traffic areas will need less frequent treatment.

How Can I Get Carpet Protectant?

There are a lot of “DIY” carpet protectants on the market, but it’s a good idea to leave this job to a carpet cleaning expert. Our scleaned professionals will make sure that your carpet is treated and protected the right way. Keep your carpet looking its best through continued care with professional carpet cleaning and protectant.
