It seems like no matter how hard you try, carpets always get dirty. Whether you accidentally spill red wine, or your kids spill red kool-aid, stains and spots always find their way onto carpets. It’s infuriating.
What if there was a way to prevent spots on your carpet? Or, at least, make them easier to clean up so spills don’t become stains? Luckily for you, there is.
Carpet Protectant to the Rescue!
Did you know that most new carpets come with carpet protectant applied? This carpet helps to protect carpets from stains. However, Over time and with regular wear, factory-applied stain resistant treatments experience a reduction in effectiveness. This is why older carpets seem to stain so much worse than newer carpets. Carpets that are left unprotected can absorb spills so quickly that even your best efforts to remove them are fruitless.
Luckily though, once your factory-applied protectant wears off, you’re not out of luck. Chem-Dry has created a protectant to protect even your old and worn carpets. Chem-Dry’s unique protectant provides a “window of opportunity” for you to remove common household stains. Chem-Dry Protectant creates an invisible barrier that helps keep stains (like fruit punch) from becoming a permanent part of the carpet fiber. While no carpet is bulletproof, Chem-Dry Protectant gives you a fighting chance.
How to Prevent Stains with Carpet Protectant
If you spill on a carpet with carpet protectant, it’s important to treat the stain quickly. Use a white rag to soak up liquid, as other colors may transfer their dye into the stain and make it worse. Be sure to blot at the carpet, which should be effective because the liquid won’t set into the fibers easily. Rubbing the carpet will force the liquid deep into the carpet. Keep blotting until the all of the liquid has been absorbed. In most cases, there won’t any trace of a stain left. Remember that stains that are left for a long time have a greater chance to settle into the carpet fibers and stain, and that carpet protectant needs to be refreshed every once in a while to be most effective.
Why Chem-Dry’s Unique Co-Application Provides Better Coverage
Conclusive testing shows that Chem-Dry Protectant provides better soil protection than competing protectors because only Chem-Dry uses an innovative co-application process compared to our competitors who post-apply their protectors after cleaning.
When you choose to add protectant to your Chem-Dry carpet cleaning, the protectant is actually added directly to our cleaning solutions and applied as your carpet is being cleaned. This co-application process means it coats the entire carpet fiber, from the tip to the base, as your carpet is being cleaned, not just the tips like with our competitors.
Plus, because the Protectant is added at the same time as cleaning, no additional moisture is required, so there is no additional dry time. Carpets are still dry within a couple of hours. All of our competitors post-apply their protectors, adding even more moisture to an already wet carpet and extending the dry time.
At Chem-Dry, we recognize the substantial investment you have made in your carpets and want to enhance your investment and ensure a longer carpet life. With Chem-Dry Protectant and regularly scheduled cleanings, spots and stains are not a problem and your home is left fresh, clean and healthy for your family.
