When Should I Use Carpet Protectant?

Have you ever dealt with a spill that has entered so deeply into the fibers of your carpet that it is nearly impossible to remove? These types of spills happen to everyone, but luckily, there is a solution. Carpet protectant acts as an invisible shield for your carpet by acting as a barrier between spills and your carpet. The main goal of carpet protectant is to provide short-term water resistance, to give you more time to clean up a spill before it causes a permanent stain. In turn, this helps to eliminate abrasion on the carpet, which is a major cause of carpet deterioration.

Even when vacuuming, carpet protectant can help prevent stains from dry spills and help keep your carpet looking its best.  This solution provides the long-term protection from dirt and stains to keep your home clean and beautiful. Although carpet protectants certainly do not act as a cure-all, they do allow more time for cleaning wet spills and assist in vacuuming up dry messes.

When Should I Apply Carpet Protectant?     

It is important to keep your carpet looking its best; therefore, it is essential to make sure it is constantly protected. When a new carpet is installed, it typically has some type of protectant already on it. For this reason, it isn’t necessary to treat carpet for the first 4-5 years. After that, it is recommended that carpet protectant be applied to your carpet every 18-24 months. The protectant does not necessarily stop working, but will eventually wear off over time. Be sure to treat the areas with high traffic more frequently, while low traffic areas should need less frequent treatment. Be sure to contact the professionals at Complete Chem-Dry of Lake Orion to set up an exact schedule.

Carpet protectant is perhaps one of the most important things you should do to maintain your carpet at its finest. It helps to repel water, resist soiling, and provides great benefits to your home. The next time you get your carpets professionally cleaned, be sure to ask about the benefits of carpet protectant.
