Why do I need carpet protection when I have stain resistant carpet?

When it comes to carpets, most manufacturers now include various levels of soil and stain-resistant properties in their products. For example, the Stain Master brand has become synonymous with carpets that are specially designed to resist stains, spills, and soiling. You may be surprised to know that nearly all synthetic carpets available on the market now come with some form of protection against dirt and stains. Fluorochemical coatings are commonly bonded to the fibres of the carpet in order to create a protective barrier against spills and stains. These coatings create a smooth texture which changes the carpet’s ability to absorb spills, making it less likely to stain.

However, even with this protection, carpets require regular maintenance in order to reach their expected lifespan of around twelve years. Unfortunately, many carpets begin to show signs of poor care after only three to five years. The carpet industry refers to this as “Uglying Out” and it primarily affects high traffic areas, as well as areas in front of furniture, which can lead to the carpet looking dull and dirty.

Why Carpets ”Ugly Out“ Before They Wear Out

It is important to note that when carpet fibres come straight from the factory, they are brand new and have added protection. The fibres are fresh and untouched, making them look pristine and clean. The carpet fibres are well-preserved and guarded by a protective coating that shields them from any unwanted spills or stains. This special factory coating not only keeps spills from seeping through to the carpet, but it also makes vacuuming an easier and more efficient task.

Whilst the carpet protector in place, you don’t have to worry as much about stubborn stains or spills ruining your carpet. Additionally, you can rest easy knowing that your carpet will stay in perfect condition thanks to this innovative carpet protector ensuring its longevity.

With time, foot traffic on your carpet can cause abrasive soil to accumulate and become trapped in the carpet’s fibres. While this may seem harmless to the naked eye, it is far from it. Under a microscope, the abrasive soil looks like tiny pieces of glass with jagged edges that can severely cut into your carpet’s fabric protection, causing damage and leaving fibres exposed, and vulnerable to spills and soil saturation. This makes your carpets more susceptible to permanent staining, wearing out, and ultimately “ugly out” faster.

Regular carpet cleaning and renual of your carpets protection can reduce the accumulation of abrasive soil and prevent damage to your carpets, hence prolonging the life of your carpets significantly. Therefore, it’s crucial to incorporate professional carpet cleaning as part of your home cleaning routine.

What are the benefits of carpet protector

Repels liquid spills

Fibers protected with a quality carpet protection repel liquids so spills become suspended on the surface giving you time to clean them up before they penetrate and stain the fibers of your carpet or rug.

Helps prevent wear

The protective coating the carpet protection provides shields fibres from wear and abrasion. As a result, carpets last longer so you can avoid the costs of premature replacement.

Makes vacuuming easier

Soils are less attracted to the protective coating that carpet protectors provide. Therefore, vacuuming is made easier because the protected fibres release soils and contaminants easier.

Restores the manufacturers coating

The protective coating provided by the manufacturer deteriorates over time from general wear and maintenance. Applying carpet protector after each cleaning restores the protective coating.
