The application of protector guarantees you of the best insurance conceivable against resoiling and stains. It has two defensive properties. The principal is a corrosive colour blocker that is fundamentally a clear dye that fills the dye sites of the fibres. This serves to prevent staining, (for example, tannin which is present in tea and coffee) from permanently staining the carpet or fabric. The second property is known as a "fluorochemical". It is regularly known as 3M Scotchgard or DuPont Teflon. This treatment helps keep spillage from really getting underneath the dye blocker, yet its greatest advantage is to oppose dry soil.
By opposing dry soil, less dirt bonds to the fibres. In this manner, more soil is extracted by your vacuum cleaner. By ensuring you have sufficient protection on the fibres, this will help keep the dirt from attaching to the carpets and upholstery. When soil bonds to unprotected carpets and upholstery, it acts like sandpaper on the fibres. Once the fibres are worn by this aggressive soiling no amount of cleaning can restore the original condition.
The protector we use is called "Stainshield Professional" which utilises 'shorter chain' polymers known as C6 and C4 polymers to supplant the 'long chain' C8 polymers utilised before. This enhances the effectiveness of the protection for our clients as well as fulfills our ecological objectives as the shorter polymer molecules biodegrade all the more effortlessly and are considerably less incremental. It is remarkable that, over the recent years, particular protectors in our industry have been connected with the destructive constituents Perfluorooctanoic Acid and Perfluorooctane Sulphonate.
Stainshield Professional is Woolsafe certified which means it is safe on wool fibres and is the highest quality of protector available to the trade.
These most recent Stainshield protector are substantially stronger and are not removed by Solvent spotters. The older style protectors were washed away by harsh detergents and protector needed to be re-applied after cleaning. Once Stainshield Professional has cured it is only removed by mechanical activity such as traffic from people walking and are better for both environment and for individuals than any of the older type protective treatments.
All fibres including polypropylene, both in carpets and upholstery will benefit from a treatment of Stainshield Professional by aiding easier removal of oily stains and regular dry vacuuming becomes easier and more effective thereby reducing carpet wear.
You will find that after application, spots are all the more effectively removed and future cleans are more successful.
