Does a protectant work? A lot of people think that a protectant on their carpet means that it won’t get dirty.  That’s just not true and not the purpose of a protectant.

There are several purposes of a carpet protectant.  One is to put a barrier around the carpet fiber so that spills and soil don’t penetrate. Your carpet lays flat so it is going to get dirty, no matter what, just from dust settling on it.  But, with the protectant on it dust and sand don’t attach itself to the fiber so it vacuums up much easier.

Same with spills, the protectant barrier allows you to clean them up before they penetrate the fiber. Word of caution, though, if the spill is allowed to sit too long it WILL penetrate the fibers eventually.  The proctectant only allows more time for cleaning.

Whether you clean your carpets or you have them professionally cleaned the carpet protectant makes the clean much easier and better just from keeping the fibers protected.

The last purpose of the protectant is that it reduces friction.  With the barrier around the
fiber, wear is reduced when the carpet is walked on keeping your carpet looking
the best it can for the longest it can!

Remember to call Fosters Carpet Care for your Scottsdale carpet cleaning needs as well as the rest of the valley, Tucson and Casa Grande.

    Its as if you study my mind! You look to master therefore significantly about this, as if you authored the e book inside it or something like that. I believe that can be done with some pics to generate the content home only a tiny bit, but apart from that, this really is superb blog. An excellent study. I’ll easily be back again..
